Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Inputs and Outputs Notes
Advanced Multilevel Noise Shaping
DAC: The DCM-290 features a Multilevel Noise Shaping DAC. This multi-level
modulation powerfully removes the adverse effects of jitter, and because it is
built into the output amp, a clean analog output with suppressed high-frequency
interference can be directly obtained.
Disc Exchange: You
can exchange up to 4 discs while playing a fifth;
once the drawer is open, 3 CDs can be changed, then you must use the disc skip
button to remove the remaining one.
Music Calendar: The
player has a 20-track music calendar.
MP3/WMA Playback: This unit will
play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 level format. A maximum of
256 folders can be played and the total number of files and folders is 512.
Up to 32 tracks can be programmed and played in any order.
Random Play: This
unit allows you to choose Full Random Play, Program Random Play, or Disc
Sequential Random Play. When Full Random Play is selected, all the tracks on the
loaded discs are played in random order. When Program Random Play is selected,
all the programmed tracks are played in random order. When Disc Sequential
Random Play is selected, you can select the CDs to be played in random order. Up
to 5 discs can be selected.
Repeat Play: The DCM-290 allows
you to repeat the current track, current disc, or all discs. In addition, you
can repeat Program Play and Random Play.
Direct Selection: Using the
supplied remote, you can directly access discs and tracks.
You can select one of three brightness levels, or the display can be turned off.
Control In/Out: The DCM-290 has
a mini-jack input and output on the rear panel to allow you to connect a Denon
receiver with remote control in/out jacks. With this connection, you can control
the CD player with the receiver's remote.
