Densen B-440 CD Player
“Playing a well recorded CD on Densen B-440 CD Player gives a listening experience so real that it takes the best LP recordings played on my Linn LP12 or the best Master files from Tidal played via my Hegel HD25 to match it. The built in DAC in the Densen B-440 is MAGIC!!”
“Densen sounds different than anything else on the market. You can hear the heart and soul of the music and it just makes you want to listen for ever. The sound is very present and make you want to dance and be apart of it all.Try it!! Life is too short for boring Hi-Fi”
“Very lively and communicative performer with guts and real presence.Very good solid and reliable”
“The Denson B-440 plays CDs with excellent dynamics and “opens” up the music for you. Expecially the mid- and high-range area is superb. The bass is also very good. At the dealer I compared this player with Rotel 991, and there was no doubt, the Beat 440 from Densen sounded much more High-End to me, so I bought one and I don’t regret.”
Densen B-440 Info
The B-440 may look as the naturally progression of the award winning Densen B-400XS at least pricewise, but actually is more of than a successor, and pushes the quality of CD Playback significantly.
The B-440 is in all aspects optimised for perfect performance. The signal comes from the heavily modified CD transport, with external clock control to avoid jitter by using same clock in both sending and receiving end of the datastream. Passes trough the advanced pcb layout to the DAC, and further on through the analogue stage which uses Densens unique non feedback class A topology. It is further perfected from the earlier designs, and are one of the key elements that secures the extreme high sound quality of the B-440.
The DAC circuit is completely new board, using several unique techniques and details.
The Densen design team has focused totally on creating a CD player that not only sets new standards for the price range, but actually plays music in a way that allows the listener to really dig into the music.
In the B-440 is not only the digital and analogue stages optimized to perfection, but also the powersupply. Being the heart of all audio, the powersupply in the B-440 is comparable to many poweramplifiers with a 300 VA transformer, 40.000 uF storage capacity, and no less than 8 individual regulators and 4 bridges. Naturally this means that all digital stages, analogue stages, and microprocessors and display have individual supplies, to avoid interference, and allow all stages to work perfectly.
Soundwise the B-440 is the result of Densen headhoncho Thomas Sillesens desire to make a CD Player that not only surpasses the current Densen models, but a CD player that will be a benchmark for what can be expected from CD players not only at the pricepoint of the B-440, but also at pricepoints much higher. The B-440 is transparent, dynamic, precise, engaging, musically correct, with a precise soundstage, and the ability to create a sound so good you forget you are just listening to a CD Player.
