Bottom Line:   
Great cd player.After having the Rotel-971
which is probably one of the best for the
price,i upgraded the sistem with this Denon s10-II(couldnt afford s-1)and it seems that it's going to sing for a longer period.Clean,clear,articulate sound.The bass is deep and controlled,the focus is excelent.It has a wonderfool,
musical pressentation with most of the recordings,of every instrument,but olso plays nice with big classical simfonies.
It's a nice looking hi-end product,and the build quality makes you thing it cost
at least twice of the price.Maybe there is better machines for the price,I will soon compare it with my friends Marantz-14
The only thing I dont like,is the ordinary
power cable wich I replaced with some other shilded cables,and the internal wiring,which I replac,ed with VanDenHul-cs-18,Wich is probably some of the best
wiring in the world.I know that becouse my
pre/amp use this wiring,and since Idid a lot of experiments with the internal wiring of the preamp,cs-18 is the best signal wire,and the last big progress with
the wiring was when I made a pair of interconects using 4 cs-18 wires.That really made me asking my self was it a
good investment buing all this cables in the past(VDH-silver,kimber KCAG,MIT-2,etc)
They realy take the signal from the botomm
to the end.
Other equpment:
Korato amp 2x100w(dual-mono-2x 500v-torodial)made in Serbia-the best amp for the price
Korato-preamp(dual-mono valve,with separate power suply-just great
VDH-revelation speaker cables-also great
VDH-silver interconect-one of the best but very expensive-2000$-metar pair
MIT-2 int.(exscelent
audioquest-ruby-nice warm,tube kind of sound
B&w-asw-1000 sub.nice but Iwill trade it for matrix 800 which is even better

Bottom Line:   
Built like a tank, uses separate power supply for all critcal components, able to rival powerhouse from Krell, Classe, Accuphase...

When I saw this guy, I know I am in for a treat. The Chassis is awesomely constructed, the transposrt is held in place using a floating mechanism to minimize vibration. Denon famous Alpha process is ultilized to smooth out digital errors present on the CD format and the signal is pass thru 4 DAC for processing.

The result?

Absolutely smooth, clear, very involving high end sound. This guy is able to take on the most expensive Cdplayers head on!!! Imaging is spot on, timing is exceptional, midrange is clear, bass is tight....I could go on forever.

The Denon S-series stuff are not easy to come by, but if you really happen to spot one, give it a listen....you will be amazed!

Bottom Line:   
I've had this deck now for about 6 months, and have found that I avoid using it except as a digital source deck. It makes CDs sound cold and sibilant. It takes the pleasure out of listening to music so I'm now looking around for another player.
