Denon’s 110-Year Anniversary Series DCD-A110 SACD Player
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 aluminium feet, upgrade your musical expectations.
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.
HIGH-GRADE AUDIO COMPONENTS
All audio components have been carefully selected and optimized for the best sound quality. The DCD-A110 inherits its customized audio Denon capacitor from the “DCD-SX1 Limited”, our premium SACD player only sold in Japan. AMRS and MELF resistors have been largely adopted in the audio and power sections. MELF resistors offer higher performance with low current noise.
QUAD DAC CONFIGURATION
The DCD-A110 introduces a new Quad DAC configuration for a more powerful and better spatial expression of the sound stage. Each DAC converts the large amount of data coming from the Ultra AL32 processing for both left and right signal dispatch. This allows the current output bundling to achieve the best sound, and also surpass the operating frequency limit of the DACs, for an outstanding audio performance.
DAC MASTER CLOCK DESIGN
Because accuracy is the key to performance, the DCD-A110 is equipped with two clock oscillators, one for each sampling frequency (44.1-kHz and 48-kHz), that can be switched between the frequencies to thoroughly suppress jitter. The high-quality clock is the reference for the four-audio DAC operation and ensures that the digital audio circuitry performs at its maximum potential.
INDEPENDENT DIGITAL AND ANALOGUE POWER SUPPLY
To eliminate mutual interference and noise, the power supply units for the digital and analogue circuits are fully independent even though the signals have different characteristics.
DEDICATED FULLY DISCRETE POWER SUPPLY FOR ANALOGUE AUDIO CIRCUITRY
The DCD-A110 analogue power supply circuit features a fully discrete design that is optimized for audio with the original Denon large-capacity (3300 µF) block capacitor used for the power unit of the analogue audio circuitry after the D/A converter. The DCD-A110 boasts custom parts, such as High-Power Bipolar Junction Transistor, Fully Discrete Voltage Regulator Circuit, high-sound-quality electrolytic capacitors and polyphenylene sulfide capacitors. These specially designed parts have been co-developed with select manufacturers through an extensive regimen of repeated listening tests. These parts enable a clean, yet robust, stable supply of power, resulting in a sound that is delightfully balanced between a strong foundation and delicate details.
