Protect Your Access to the Internet

Classic Japanese brand Denon has been producing audio equipment for a century. Today the company is announcing a brand-new network player with some innovative technology.

The Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player has been specifically designed to match Denon’s PMA-1700NE amplifier and models released in recent years such as the PMA-2500NE and PMA-1600NE. The DNP-2000NE will be produced in Black, Premium Silver and Graphite Silver finishes to match the company’s PMA-A110 and DCD-A110 Anniversary models.

According to a press release published today, Denon says the DNP-2000NE is “packed with advanced features,” including HEOS integration. This multi-room technology enables users to stream music wirelessly from streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music, etc. HEOS provides access to millions of songs, all of which can be streamed in high-fidelity sound if you have the appropriate subscription. The HEOS app lets users manage their local music library and create playlists.

The DNP-2000NE is equipped with Denon’s Advanced AL32 Processing Plus technology which can up-sample audio to 384kHz with bit-extension to 32-bit for reproducing music as close to the original signal as possible. Denon says its technology provides faithful audio reproduction and unmatched sound quality.

The new player includes four high-precision 32-bit/384kHz ES9018K2M DACs (digital-to-analog converters). These DACs are configured in a double-differential mode, as used on Denon’s flagship DCD-A110 model. The system is synchronized with Denon’s Master Clock design to avoid any divergence of the clock signal, which is crucial for high-fidelity reproduction.

The DNP-2000NE’s analog and digital circuits are completely isolated from each other to protect the analog signal from interference and electronic noise radiating from the digital circuits. In addition, there are various connectivity options,…
