Bottom Line:   
Bought the Denon DCD-735 second hand (cheap) for use in a smaller system in my home office. Connected it to my main system, and I must say that, this is a VERY GOOD PLAYER! It does not color the sound and the high mid and treble is clear and soft, does give my Musical Fidelity DAC a challenge! This one is a bargain!

The DAC is two Burr-Brown PCM61P 18bit DAC, how they realized the two extra bits and the ALPHA-processing I don’t know. The operational amplifiers in the analog filter and the output is the NEC uPC4570, there are better ones available, but this one is not a bad choice, and obviously good enough! There are two electrolytic capacitors at the output, but it feels that the sound does not suffer from them.

Bottom Line:   
This CD player is a good signal source. It gives a very neutral sound that brings out the dynamics and tonality of the music. I have been listening to a lot of CDs in my collection (mainly classical, jazz and blues) that I haven't listened to for quite a while and I'm impressed by the Denon's performance. If you want quality audio reproduction without getting into mega bucks then the 735 is a strong contender.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent hi-end cd-player.Bass , treble and details very balanced without metallic effect like the low price cd-players.
The 2 DAC 16 Bit Lambda S.L.C. + 20 Bit ALPHA Processor works very well to play an exquisite sound .

Bottom Line:   
Exellent cd-player competes with the best in any price-range actually!!
Reproduces every last bit without harshness, solid, dry bass again with incredible detail. This cd-player is unforgiving with bad recordings!! So not sweet, not 'warm', not 'tube-like' but very true to the source, yes that little silver disc you put in the tray... Actually that's what a cd-player shoud do. This cd-player does the job very well at a steal!
