Our take on the Denon DCM-370 by Crutchfield's James Ralston
A true bargain for audiophiles! Featuring Denon's Multilevel Noise Shaping D/A converter and an advanced digital filter, the DCM-370 treats you to CD sound that's exceptionally clear, lifelike, and detailed. This capable player also has HDCD® decoding, so you can enjoy even smoother, more natural sound on thousands of HDCD-encoded discs.
Disc exchange lets you change up to 4 CDs while the 5th keeps playing. Three random play modes and 32-track programming let you keep your music sounding fresh. Other nice touches include a remote with volume control and direct track access, a headphone jack for private listening, and a large, fluorescent front-panel display you can easily read from across the room. The coaxial digital output lets you connect an external CD-R or MiniDisc recorder for direct digital dubs, or connect to your receiver's compatible digital input.

HDCD Decoder: The DCM-370 is equipped with an HDCD decoder to ensure that you get the full benefit of CDs recorded using HDCD encoding.
Advanced Multilevel Noise Shaping DAC: The DCM-370 features a Multilevel Noise Shaping D/A converter. 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.
Variable Headphone and Line Outputs: The output levels are controlled by remote only (controlled using the volume +/- buttons). The line and headphone output levels are affected simultaneously, so the line output level cannot be changed without changing the headphone output level (and vice versa). If the variable line output level is changed while recording a CD from the analog outputs of this unit, the recording levels will be affected.
Music Calendar: The player has a 16-track music calendar.
Program Play: 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 disc can be selected, and the same disc can be selected two or more times.
Repeat Play: The DCM-370 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.
Remote Control In/Out: When the DCM-370 is cable connected to an amplifier or receiver that supports the Remote Control In/Out feature, you can operate the DCM-370 via the remote sensor on the amplifier or receiver. This feature is very handy when the DMC-370 is placed in another room.
- Phones: Standard headphone jack (volume is adjustable from the remote only)
- Line Out: Stereo RCA jacks (the output level can be adjusted using the remote)
- Coaxial Digital Out: Standard coaxial digital jack
