Great cd player overall, but may not do the job for some.

Summary: The sound quality of the Denon DCM-27 is excellent but some may find it to be a bit laid back on the high end. My system uses a preamp that does not have any tone controls or equalization of any kind and will reveal the true character of recordings and equipment. For critical listening I use a NAD M-5 cd player and sometimes my Oppo BDP-83SE bluray player, but for continuous music listening I have an old Marantz cd changer.
