Bottom Line:   
I acquired the dcd-3000 on an audio trade that seemingly worked to my opponents advantage.he said and concluded that the unit had a problem reading so he traded it.I opened the unit and cleaned the eye and the issue persisted. After further analysis and a narrowing of the issue,the unit does not acknowledge homemade cds,some not all.so I now have a great player and the issue was not mechanical it was user negligence.

Bottom Line:   
Sorry, but I have to disagree with the other enthusiastic reviews. The music from the player was relatively conjested, even feeding into a Benchmark DAC1. It has gone off for modification. Not as goos as my modded Rotel.

Bottom Line:   
This model is hard to find. It has the same electronics as the Denon DCD-S10 (identical specifications), but a different Chassis. Great sound and a top-notch transport if you have a outboard DAC. There are also digital inputs for its ALPHA processor if you like to connect your Minidisc or any other recorder.

Bottom Line:   
I replaced an aging dcd1520 with the 3000. It uses the electronics of the S10. For me, it compares quite favorably with CDP's 3 times the cost and in many cases is better. That's a lot of value when you can pick this up used for <$500.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a demo-ex a while ago for half of the original price.I have already decided to buy DCD-1550 but when I compared them side by side
the DCD-3000 is much warmer och got more presence. I was told that DCD-3000 is
an DCD-S10 in another box. It has balanced output and also have coaxial/optical digital output and also optical/coaxial digital input!!
I must try to listen to my DAT through the DCD-3000's D/A.
The nearest companion today is DCD-1650 (3000 is slightly better).

Oh, I almost forgot....when comparing the cd's I used NAD's Silver-line
series power-amp and pre-amp with...I think it was DALI Evidence.
