Should be class action lawsuit against Denon! Bad engineering!

CQ DX, Amazon

  • 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. I owned the DCM-370 and this DCM-390, and have had nothing but problems with the CDP reading my discs (that are kept in pristine condition, in a temp controlled environment). The discs skip during playback, and I can't listen to my music at all!

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. Some lens cleaning methods may extend operations for a few weeks, but eventually they all die ignominiously.

CHEAP TRAY DESIGN

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!!! The sound quality is good and other features are also good: however this is the secound unit I will have to return and as such I will NEVER but DENON CD equipment!!!

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 (generally, NEW) equipment.

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. And so I decided on a 390 as a replacement, which might be more compatible with my Denon amplifier (also a dog). The good news is that the DCM 390 works, after a fashion and at least for now. Practically everything else is the bad news.
