- Masimo Consumer now presents the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player as the latest streaming client from the Denon brand.
Masimo Consumer is convinced that the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player is a state-of-the-art streaming client. According to the manufacturer, the outstanding sound quality and flexibility of use are the main arguments in favour of this Denon brand solution.
The flexibility of the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player is guaranteed first and foremost by the streaming platform, since the company’s own HEOS Built-in solution is used. In addition, the latest offspring of the Denon brand also shines with versatile connection options, including HDMI for integrating TV sets into the hi-fi chain.
Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player based on HEOS Built-in
For years, Denon, like its sister company Marantz, has relied on a proven streaming technology developed in-house, HEOS Built-in. Formerly developed under the Denon brand, then spun off as a separate HEOS brand and relatively quickly relaunched as a pure technology platform, this is a highly versatile solution that is constantly being developed.
HEOS Built-in ensures that with the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player, for example, you can access numerous music streaming services directly, be it Spotify, Deezer, TIDAL or Amazon Music, as well as play back your own content directly in the network, and all of this of course in hi-res audio and thus in the best quality and uniformly convenient control via the corresponding apps, which are available for both Google Android and Apple iOS. The spectrum of solutions with HEOS Built-in ranges from compact all-in-one systems, wireless speakers and soundbar systems to AV receivers, which the user can combine as desired to create a powerful hi-res audio streaming system throughout the home.
With HEOS Built-in, the Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player is also able to support Apple AirPlay 2, whereby the network connection can be made either via cable or WiFi. Bluetooth is also included, so that smartphones can be used easily and directly as a source, even away from the network. Since it is a so-called transceiver that can receive and transmit, it is also possible to directly integrate Bluetooth headphones, which is also explicitly emphasised here for the sake of completeness.
32-bit 384 kHz converters and Denon Advanced AL32 Processing Plus
The new Denon DNP-2000NE network audio player is said to be characterised by particularly high quality signal processing, whereby four high-precision 32-bit 384 kHz D/A converters as well as a double differential mode adopted from the flagship Denon DCD-A110 are said to be largely responsible for this. The manufacturer also points to a particularly precise master clock.
The so-called Denon Advanced AL32 Processing Plus should also be mentioned, because according to the manufacturer, this provides upsampling to 384 kHz and an intelligent expansion of the resolution to 32 bits, so that even with compressed content, an exact reconstruction of the music signal and thus a particularly appealing quality is guaranteed.
USB, S/PDIF and HDMI ARC
Unusually, the developers equipped the Denon DNP-2000NE network audio player so that it can also serve as a versatile D/A converter for a wide range of sources. For example, there are two optical and one coaxial S/PDIF digital inputs, a USB-A port for connecting storage media and a USB-B port for direct connection to a PC or Mac. In addition, there is an HDMI port that can be used to connect a TV directly as a source to the Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player. Accordingly, the HDMI interface supports ARC, i.e. an Audio Return Channel, as well as HDMI CEC for central control with the remote control of the TV set alone, provided that the variable output of the Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player is used. You can also control compatible Denon amplifiers via an IR control.
By the way, this also reveals that the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player not only has a line out with a fixed level, but also one with a variable level, whereby both are in the form of cinch connections. By the way, a headphone connection is available directly on the front, and we should not forget to mention this.
Prices and availability
According to the manufacturer, the new Denon DNP-2000NE network audio player will be available in specialist shops from June 2023. Three colour versions will be available: black, premium silver and silver graphite. The black and premium silver versions will be available at a recommended retail price of € 1.599,- and the silver graphite version at € 1.799,-.
Getting to the point
The new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player is supposed to be a particularly versatile and thus flexible streaming client, whereby Masimo Consumer understands it first and foremost as an optimal extension of the current stereo integrated amplifiers of the Denon brand, be it the Denon PMA-1700NE, Denon PMA-2500NE or Denon PMA-1600NE. Since the new Denon DNP-2000NE Network Audio Player will not only be available in premium silver and black, but also in silver-graphite, and since it is supposed to be of a particularly high standard, this solution is also recommended as a partner for the Denon PMA-A110 and Denon DCD-A110 systems.
