Denon's CD192T and FMJ CD36T ARCAM audiophile CD players

Ryan Block , @ryan
Don't you dare say CDs are dead, kid. Well, at least not to the fine folks at Denon, who've just launched anachronistically expensive CD192T and FMJ CD36T, two ARCAM CD players more or less built enthusiastically around a Wolfson WM8740 DAC. For your ¥210,000 or ¥315,000 (about $1,900 and $2,800 US) you get, um, a CD player with anti-vibration shielding, 192kHz sampling, 114dB SNR, coax, TOSLINK, and two RCA outs. We'd say that's money better spent on DVD-Audio or SACD at this point, but we're not sure we've ever been able to convince the audiophiles of anything -- so if you are to CDs what many are to vinyl, welcome home.
