Vintage Denon DCD-900 (mint in box)

Hi everyone,

I am a 'newbie' and know very little about older CD players hence would like some assistance.

I picked up this unit mint in it's original box complete with a manual, cables and remote.
I only know this is a late 80s unit and only has analogue pre-outs.
Can anyone tell me a bit more about this player and if it is any good as I can't find anything on Google?

To give you some background I am aiming to listen to CDs (mainly bass and electronica) via some headphones on this player first and pair it up with a nice amp and speakers as a vintage system as funds permit.

Should I hang onto it or just forgot about running a unit that is 30 years old and buy a new Blue Ray player that is going to sound just as good? I like the idea of setting up a vintage system. I do not have any vinyl hence the CD pathway.

Many thanks

Welcome! haydo-

these older players are fine for your specific use. Type in the model # on google images and see if others have posted photos.
I am a Sony ES fan, especially 80's + 90's players. Are there better sounding players, yes. It all will depend on the extend of your system building.
Feel free to ak me any questions. I can suggest many great to excellent players at different price-points.

If it works, use it. If it fails on you, just pick up a modern blu ray player and you will be good to go.
