I'm looking consolidate some gear. I have a S9000ES DVD/SACD player thats been recently retired due to it exibiting some erros. I now have my Panasonic RP91 in my rack. I also have a SCD-C555ES multichannel SACD/CD player in the rack.

Question is: Will the Denon 2200 be as good or, better via analog 2 channel connection to my Ref50 as my 555ES CD changer? If the answer is yes, it'll allow me to sell a couple pieces and consolidate. I don't know much about different DAC's. My best guess would be the 555ES would outgun the Denon 2200 for 2 channel analog out. I know i love the sound of it now, and don't hear much difference vs. going digital out and letting the Ref50 handle it. I use the 555's DAC's. I'd like to have one player do superior video, great Redbook, DVD-A & SACD. Thanks.

I do not think so. My personal experience is that DVD players are optimized for video. The Denon 2200 audo section is Ok but cannot compare to a dedicated player such as the SCD-C555ES. The Denon 2900 and the 5900 maybe better contenders but specifically for redbook playing I find it hard the Denon DVD players can compete with the SCD-C555ES. Get one of the Denons for 30 days and give it a try.:)
