This may be wrong, but I have come to the conclusion that almost all, if not all brands have a "house sound".
I purchased a Denon DCM-270 a few years back to replace a Sony CDP-345 ?, not sure of the model number.
I know the changer I bought was much less costly than the player your looking at. However I ended up having to buy another Sony, this time an ES model, a CA-70ES.
I was not able to adjust to the different sound I got from the Denon. It didn't matter if I hooked it up analog or by dig coax and used my Rotel RSX-972's DAC. I just didn't like it.
To be fair, the bass was very defined, but the overall sound was grating to my ears. I guess I prefer the smoothness I had become accustomed to with a Sony.
