Bottom Line:   
Overall the best changer I have listened to. Such a warm and revealing sound. I love the stock DAC and the video output is fun for a unit of it's age. Very large in size, but worth the space. Sounds much better then my Denon 5 disc.

Bottom Line:   
Truly a great product. Exceptional transport. With the right source material, and an outboard DAC like the one from Meridian, sounds as good as a $20.000 Linn CD player. Totally relaxed presentation. Phenomenal bass.

Bottom Line:   
This is the "Duck's Nuts" of CD changers. Got the 5001 slave as well for a total of $4000 Aus (that's about $2000 US). Out of the box quite easy to set up. Some of the functions are a bit hard to figure out - partly due to the manual, partly due to my expectations being a bit different. Once you figure it all out it is really really cool.

And the sound... Nothing compares. I have it going through my Electrocompaniet ECI 4 amp with B&W 805s - the sound is sensational.

Other natty functions are also pretty cool - cross fade, delete (for those songs you just can't stand) and so on.

All up - brilliant.

Bottom Line:   
I have both the Denon 5000 and 5001 units. As others have mentioned, the sound in analog is phenominal. The digital connection - via coaxial - is superb. This unit has capability to decode HDCD and has a 24 bit Alpha processor. It also plays DTS CDs that I have in there. An example of the brilliant sound is when I play Sting's "Brand New Day" DTS version. A 24 bit CD that delivers big time. I deliberated a lot before buying this, but I am glad I went with this. The build is awesome and the 2 drives make for smooth transition to next CD.

Some have mentioned it is slow. If you are playing one CD and then set it to the CD you want to play after the first one, the change is instand. The second CD starts in less than 2 seconds. This is because of the 2 drives and the 2nd drive already has the next CD in its grasp.

The only negative is price. However, you get what you pay for. I am looking to add 2 more 5001s soon for a total of 400. That will set me back a bit
