Should be class action lawsuit against Denon! Bad engineering!

CQ DX, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: The DCM series 5 disc carousel players have been plagued with tray and disc reading malfunctioning issues going back a few models and years. You can read the many negative reviews going back to the DCM-370 model and after.

Do not buy under any circumstances!

Douglas MacMartin, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Please read other reviews and do not buy this unless you only want it for a year. It lasts a bit longer than the warranty before it stops being able to read CDs.

Inherently Flawed Design

Lem3, Amazon
13 November 2010
  • Summary: The only good thing about the Denon 390 changer is the sound... when it works. My third one just began exhibiting the same failure as the other two: somewhere between 3 to 8 months in service the unit will suddenly refuse to recognize any disk has been inserted.

Richard Teissier, Amazon
8 July 2010
  • Summary: This is my first review of any kind. I cannot help but now complain about the tray design of Denon cd players., I have now purchased two dcm 390 units (not cheap) and the same design flaw has appeared in both units, i.e. discs get stuck in tray!!!

Denon DCM-390's nice sound is dependent on crap hardware

Steven Annan "peterpudwhistle", Amazon
29 December 2009
  • Summary: I've owned many cd players over the past 25 years since "Born in the USA" came out the non-vinyl format. Most have been abandoned due to upgrades, the double-edged sword of technology: the newest format/tech/software provides better sound, more convenience, whatever benefits but requires upgraded...

The "Yugo" or "Trabant" of CD Players

Guy Crouchback, Amazon
7 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought a Denon DCM 390 to replace my 15-year old Sony player. We built a house 5 years ago and, while I wasn't paying close attention, we ended up with Denon gear. Except I kept my Sony, which I loved but which eventually died.

20 November 2008
  • Summary: I've had 3 of these machines over the past couple of years. The first one, bought brand new, sounded great. After a few months, it started acting up - would not read discs at all or would skip, etc. Then I began to clean it regularly using a lens cleaner.

Denon DCM-390 5 Disc CD Carousel

D.Beck, Rate it all!
20 October 2008
  • Summary: FEATURES: Deceptive "Denon" Name. Not your father's Denon, let me assure you. Weight. If it were any lighter it would be made of balsa wood. Remote Control. The remote does not light up when used and does not have a power on/off button.
