Bottom Line:   
Having spent allot of time with the Denons over the years ,this player was hard to beat in that price range.
I had the the 1015 AB'ed with it's bigger brothers the DCD3000 and S10 (which was approx ten times the price then)and whilst the 1015 did not have the finesse and reality of the S10 it still fared very well.I really think that most of the cheaper players can do 95% of what the megabuck players can do sonically.
Listening to Paul Simons Concert in the park cd reveals some foward mids in the vocals and little loss of focus ,identification and sharpness of the surrounding instruments in this live recording, but the overall presentation of the sound is still very balanced , very Denon.
They really give the sound a nice smooth over with their DSP processing
...like nice icing on an average cake.

Bottom Line:   
I now have this player for more than 6 years at the moment, it still works as well as in its first days. It even plays CD-R of all brands and kinds, which is most important for me because I digitized a lot of old analog stuff (vinyl and tapes) and want to hear it also on my secondary system, where the Denon has its place since I have the Yamaha 890 in my first system.

Bottom Line:   
The Denon 1015 cd-player was launched in the fall of 1994, not 1995 as stated by another reviewer - put in another way: I bought it in october 1994.

The price was 3000 DKK - appr. $400.

Bottom Line:   
I got a dirty cheap deal for this CD player as an open box item (came without remote, box, manual). I connected it with my pre amp by an optical cable. It sounds so clear and smooth. I love this CD player so far.

Bottom Line:   
This is one of the best CD players I have come across. This is how CD players should be, warm and accurate! CD recordings are greatly emphasized and bad recordings can easily be detected. Optical out takes this player to another level. Denon's make good amps and CD players... 5 STARS!!

Question re Pioneer VSX 1015 Volume & thanks!

Hi All, I want to thank those on the list that responded to my post from a few weeks ago on a new receiver I was thinking of buying.

Used Yammy HTR-5590 or new Pio VSX-815/1015?

Long story short...I have a Yammy HTR-5590 (similar to rx-v1300) but don't like having a fixed 90Hz crossover (my sub is behind and to the right of me and I occasionally hear dialouge coming from it)...I have the opportunity to sell it for $250 (it's 3 years old)...I don't want to spend a ton more s ...

Pioneer 1015... other alternative recomendations?

Hello all, I am looking to replace a Kenwood KR-V7080 (100W per channel, Dolby Pro Logic) that I bought in 1996. It didn't have Dolby Digital but other than that, it has suited me just fine. But now I want Dolby Digital and am looking to replace it. I am not an audiophile and need to stay within ... Read More »
