Denon Preview DCD-SA1 High-End, Two-Channel SACD Player

Denon’s UK PR representative Robert Follis has released preview details of a new Denon two-channel, high-end SACD player.

Known as the DCD-SA1, the machine will retail at Ј5,000 in the UK, with a launch date scheduled for mid April 2005.

The DCD-SA1 is part of Denon’s ‘S’ series of components, which they say have led the high-end Hi-Fi market in Japan and the Far East for many years. Denon UK has focused on systems and home cinema, so the DCD-SA1’s UK launch represents something of a departure for the brand.

The DCD-SA1 will be joined by the matching PMA-SA1 amplifier, and both will make their debuts at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show, which takes place in February.

Rob points out that… “there is no more information and no more pictures are available at this time…” and review samples won’t be available until March, so don’t ask!
