Denon DBT-3313UD vs Denon DCD-1510AE for 2 channel CD/SACD


Active Member
Hey all,

I am currently using a Denon DBT-3313UD Blu Ray/SACD/CD player connected via the stereo analogue outputs to my Denon PMA-2000ae stereo amp for listening to 2 channel CD and SACD.

I am quite happy with the sound (mainly because the PMA-2000ae sounds amazing) but I am wondering if a dedicate 2 channel CD/SACD player such as the Denon DCD-1510AE or (if I can find one second hand) a Denon DCD-1500AE would sound better!

Would I notice a huge difference or is the 2 channel analogue out on my Denon DBT-3313UD good enough? Has anyone done a direct comparison?

Thanks all,
