Overview Details Accessories
 

The DCM-290 from Denon combines five-disc convenience with advanced technology to make your CDs sound better than ever. The disc carousel spins in either direction, so you can jump from disc to disc without long periods of silence in between. You can also pop in a CD-R or CD-RW loaded with MP3 or WMA (Windows® Media Audio) files for hours of your favourite tunes. Random play helps keep your music fresh, or you can use 20-track program play to specify a custom song sequence.

Denon's proprietary digital-to-analog converter fights jitter to maintain the purity of the music signal. Optical and coaxial digital outputs allow you to make a noise-free connection to your receiver, so you'll hear your music exactly as it was recorded.

choose another May-13-12
Reviewer: TedM from Canyon Country, CA  
I've had this product for several years.  It has been used almost every day.  Sound quality is good, and matches well with my components.  That said, the machine started to malfunction after about a year of use.  Such things as not loading properly, not reading a loaded disc, disc tray making loud grinding noise when advancing.  It's been a tossup as to whether it will play or not.  So, reading the other reviews, it seems you will either get a good machine or a bad one.  I expect a machine to play reliably, without worry for many years, and this one didn't.  Will not buy another Denon product.


 
Reliability not good May-06-12
Reviewer: Owen from Central Illinois  
This player sounded fantastic when I first purchased it.  It seemed to be rather solidly built.  After about 8 months, it started skipping.  I was finally able to send it in for repair to Denon.  They sent me a B-stock unit that lasted 3 days and did the same thing.  I sent the second unit back.  The third unit didn't work out of the box.  They sent me an A-stock unit.  It worked for a couple of years with very little use.  It's been powered off over 99% of the time for the last couple of years.  While not having a working CD player, I converted most of my CDs to flac and use SONOS, so I didn't use the unit much.  Now the current unit is doing the same thing the other 3 did.  I realize that some units may have defects and a warranty replacement may be necessary (That's what a warranty is for).  But FOUR units not working with the same problem in 3.5 years?

Latest update September-11-10
Reviewer: Di from winston salem, nc  
I was talked into this unit by a crutchfield tech and I must say he was right.  It is a solidly
built unit that has very good sound quality.  I was ready to buy a whole new set up
includinga new receiver when the tech said lets just try this first.  Sound is now rich and
full and no skipping or hiccups in any CD files including mp3 or wma.  I have this unit
outdoors at a pool and it is audible thru the entire yard.  It was also so very easy to install
that I put it in myself, much to my husbands astonishment.  Only disappointment is that
when CD 5 is done you must go and reload or restart the sequence.  I am very pleased
with this unit and at a very reasonable cost.
