The Denon DCD-1510AE Super Audio CD Player features the same Advanced AL32 Processing of Denon's high-class DCD-2010AE. This technology dramatically enhances information volume from the CD to produce a sound more faithful to the original. The Denon DCD1510AE SACD player also has a USB port for directly receiving digital tracks stored on an iPod or USB memory. When digital audio signals are input from an external device, they pass through Advanced AL32 Processing and other circuits developed by Denon to maximise sound quality, allowing you to experience a depth of sound not possible with the portable audio device by itself.
Denon's Advanced AL32 Processor expands audio data to 32 bits and uses a proprietary algorithm to interpolate the data and perform upconversion and sampling, achieving a playback sound that is close to the original source. Since high-performance devices capable of large capacity processing read data samples across a wide spectrum and process them in a single stage, they interpolate signals with greater precision compared with multi-stage digital filters and other such devices. In addition, the use of algorithms ideal for frequency characteristics outside the audible range to filter sudden bursts of musical data or continuous sound at high frequencies protects sound quality from the adverse effects of aliasing noise or drops in high-range response. The Advanced AL32 Processor reproduces the delicate nuances of music, as well as spatial information such as the position of the artist and the breadth, height, and depth of the stage, in a more natural manner.
To ensure that the Advanced AL32 Processor performs at its maximum potential, the Denon DCD-1510AE SACD player has been fitted with high-precision 32-bit, 192-kHz D/A converters. These D/A converters transmit differential output to each channel to improve sound quality during playback. These converters let you enjoy minute details of music with remarkable clarity, including the acoustic resonances of concert halls.
The Denon DCD 1510 AE features the same type of DAC that is used in our high-class CD player as a master of clock signals for all devices. Since these clock signals are generated by an oscillator circuit module, it is possible to obtain highly reliable oscillation unaffected by PC board patterns and other elements.
The signal paths are all simple and straight to ensure pure, noise-free audio playback. Signal degradation is prevented by minimising twists and turns in the signal path. In the Denon DCD1510 AE Super Audio CD player, servo-related digital signal processing occurs directly below the disc mechanism unit to shorten the digital signal path and boost signal-to-noise (S/N) performance. The transformers for the digital and analogue signals have also been mounted in separate locations within the chassis, and the power unit for the analogue signals has been placed near the analogue circuit board to shorten the path from the power circuit and achieve lower impedance. These design improvements further ensure a stable supply of current and playback of a spacious, transparent sound.
The Denon DCD-1501AE includes a USB port that lets you play digital music files directly from your iPod or USB memory (*1). The signals pass through the DCD-1510AE's Advanced AL32 Processor and high-precision 32-bit, 192-kHz D/A converters to give you extremely satisfying, high-quality sound.
You can also use the remote control unit to select files, and file names and other details can be displayed. The iPod can also be recharged during playback.

The Audioquest Evergreen interconnects incorporate solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
The Audioquest Big Sur incorporates Perfect-Surface Copper+ has an astonishingly smooth and pure surface. Proprietary metal-processing technology protects the wire's surface at every stage of drawing and fabrication
All of Sydney's conductors use PE Air-Tube Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. PE Air-Tube Insulation causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
Whatever your system and whatever components you need to connect, the Chord Crimson VEE 3 is an excellent way to discover just how much a properly designed and beautifully built interconnect can improve the system it is fitted to
The Chord Chameleon VEE 3 uses Chord's established Chameleon SilverPlus cable. The conductors though have been re-configured into a single signal and dual return configuration to improve definition and timing
