To celebrate 110 years of defining audio excellence, Denon is proud to bring you our premium flagship SACD player featuring Denon’s original patented Advanced S.V.H. Mechanism for the highest audio accuracy. With an outstanding Quad DAC configuration, advanced Ultra AL32 Processing, and strong aluminum feet, upgrade your musical expectations. This celebratory Anniversary Series SACD player comes in a unique silver graphite colour, with a 5-year out-of-box warranty and a special Certificate of Authenticity stamped with the approval of Denon’s Head Engineer.
The integrity of musical signals deteriorates when they are subject to internal vibration caused by disc rotation or the power transformer or to airborne vibration caused by sound pressure from the speakers. To guard against such influences, Denon engineers designed a vibration suppression structure called “Direct Mechanical Ground Construction”. In this design, the power transformers – themselves a source of vibration – have been placed close to the feet of the DCD-A110 where unwanted vibration is funneled directly to the ground and prevented from affecting nearby circuitry. Also, by placing the drive mechanism – the part with the greatest mass – low in the centre of the chassis, the low centre of gravity effectively absorbs internal vibration caused by disc rotation and also protects the mechanism from external vibration. To further shut out external vibration, the 1.2mm thick main chassis has been reinforced with two 1.6mm thick steel plates to produce a highly rigid three-layer structure with sufficient vibration-resistant mass.
DSD DATA DISC PLAYBACK SUPPORT
In addition to CD and Super Audio CD, the DCD-A110 can play DSD (2.8-Mhz/5.6-MHz) files and Hi-Res audio files up to 192-kHz/24-bit recorded on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs. You can also play music files with sampling frequencies of up to 48-kHz recorded on CD-R/RW discs.
ULTRA AL32 PROCESSING WITH 384-KHZ/32-BIT SUPPORT
The DCD-A110 is equipped with Ultra AL32 Processing, the latest in analogue waveform reproduction technology from Denon. Ultra AL32 Processing utilizes data interpolation algorithms and supports Hi-Res 192-kHz/24-bit PCM signal input. These algorithms interpolate points that should exist before and after the points in large quantities of data to achieve a smooth waveform that is close to that of the original signal.
These algorithms up-sample the bandwidth from the original content, smoothing out the waveform and improving the sound reproduction. Ultra AL32 Processing doubles the processing bandwidth from the previous generation up-sampling 384-kHz/32-bit content to 1.512-MHZ. By carefully restoring data that was lost during digital recording, the resulting playback sound is highly detailed, free of interference, accurately localized, richly expressive in the lower range, and beautifully faithful to the original sound.
