SOLD: FS- Denon DVD-A1 DVD/CD/DVD-A Player

Recommended Posts

Item: Denon DVD-A! DVD/CD/DVD-A Player

Location: Oak Park
Price: $400
Item Condition:  Has an intermittent fault in the optical tracking.  Cosmetically is perfect.
Reason for selling: Taking up room.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
Extra Info:  Have placed $400 but am open to reasonable offers.  The thing will give $4000 CD players a run for their money!


Selling my bought from new in 2002 Denon DVD-A1.  


This was the flagship DVD player produced by Denon when they made incredible HT and Audio products.  I bought it to match my Denon AVC-A1SE, another classic piece of Denon electronics that weighed as much as a battleship. 


Weighs in at an impressive18.5kg; and it's a DVD player!  


Sadly it has a fault where the optical drive has issues detecting the CD or DVD when first loaded.  This results in a noise from the CD tray and sometimes a normal playing of the CD or if not a need to open and close the CD tray a number of times, usually three or four, before it begins playing, When playing it perform perfectly for the entire CD.  


I have had the issue checked and at the time DVD's were being replaced by HD-DVD and BlueRay so spending $600 for a new laser assembly didn't seem to make sense but when the sound from this thing is heard it probably was.


have it currently connected to a Moon system comparing the Chris Jones - Roadhouse& Automobiles CD from Stockfisch on the Denon V my Moon CD transport valued at at $7k plus and I'm shocked at how close to the much more expensive and newer Moon, the Denon is.     


For $900 repaired this would be great value.


In addition to being able to play CD's, when it finally does, the CD drive can be bypassed and the internal DAC's ( Burr Brown PCM1704 Audio DACs (these are rated at 24-bit 768 kHz and will oversample 96/24 8X) can used for external devices.

Here's a link to  brilliant review of it.

Denon DVD-A1


As much as the fault annoys me I love this thing but if someone else wants it I'm prepared to let it go.  Not much good sitting under the bed and being brought out yearly to hoping he fault has miraculously gone.


Comes with remote, manual and proprietary DenonLink cable..  


I have a video of noise associated with fault and with it working perfectly if needed.


Pickup only from Oak Park in Melbourne for obvious reasons.

      Item: ATC SCM40A - Active Speakers in Cherry
      Location: Perth
      Price: $7,300
      Item Condition: 9.5/10 & only because it's been used from new. Not a mark or scratch on them. Less than 12m old.
      Reason for selling: Moving further up the ATC range
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Bank Deposit Only
      Extra Info: 
                 This is an EOI only because I will not be ready to sell these until May this year. There is an approx. 6 week lead time if you wanted these new from a dealer anyway, that just the way it is with ATC, they are built to order basically.
      These speakers sell themselves. If you know ATC then you know they are a rock solid speaker company in regards to build quality, long warranty (6 years and fully transfereable to new owners), from a company who has been doing consumer and pro. active speakers for decades, a massive reputation and following for their sound quality and build quality - they simply do not fail (you have to abuse them or a lightning strike etc.) The reviews are all over the web, and on ATC own website, on hi fi forums etc. I was not really an active speaker believer before, now I will never go back to a passive, happy to discuss in depth to anyone intersted in these on why active speakers are the way to go. The build date of these are May 2019, so they will still have 5 years worth of warranty to run for the new owner. Cannot get better piece of mind than that. I have all the original boxes, manuals, speaker grills, powercords etc.
      I have mine in a 4m x 8m room and they are great in that size room, and being a sealed speaker design, you can also get by in much smaller room than you would think too.
      So I need to align the sale of these speakers with my order of the speakers that I am moving up to, hence the looooooong EOI time frame.
      Happy to discuss and demo. local in Perth and happy to ship to an interstate buyer, however the buyer pays the shipping & insurance etc. 
      **The Isolation feet and powercords in the photos are not part of the sale, I'll be keeping them for the new speakers.**

      Hello there, 
      I've inherited a home theatre a while ago when my dad's mate have upgraded.
      It was composed of:
      1 Denon Amp (cant recall which one it was, but want to say AVR-700?)
      2 Axis LS-38 Front (Dual connector) want to say 150W 8Ohm
      2 Axis LS-28 backs (Dual connector) 100W 8Ohm
      1 Gale Centre 2 (Dual connector) 100W 8Ohm
      1 12" Sound Dynamics Subwoofer (stereo rca and high connector)
      When moving from Brisbane down to Melbourne, the transport company have "lost" (you'll see why the quotes) a few boxes from the full moving truck. broken a few glasses, china and lost a few clothes and the front speakers with the amp. All speakers and the amp on the original boxes, with the manual, styrofoam and everything...
      I'm not saying it wasn't lost, but those boxes were pretty big, self explanatory and with big writing on them. The were very well looked after, with no marks on anywhere, so much so that the missus said "i'm not gonna help you box those ones because i know how you are with this system and they just look brand new".
      I was gonna save the Amp just as a collector's item because it had no HDMI, but it had surround through RCA, digital and optical. no fancy DTS or anything like that, so it was due to upgrade.
      I always been pretty happy with it for the movie room.
      The insurance company gave me $500 so replace them, because they said it was an "old" system.
      So now I ask:
      What are the suggestions for replacement for the Front speakers and for a amp ?  Can be used, as i probably wouldn't be able to buy new.
      Cant seem to find any Axis LS-38 to replace them. When i search there are just too much that i don't understand to do it. Wouldn't mind better speakers but not worse.
      Now i'm Thinking on getting a 65" OLED TV, so i think HDMI would be a must for amp.
      what are the thoughts on 7.1/7.2? maybe a time for upgrade as well....
      Currently living on North West Melbourne Vic.

      Item: Curious Evolved Blue USB Cable 0.8m
      Location: Perth
      Price: $400
      Item Condition: 9.9/10 practically brand new with all wrappings on usb still kept
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Up for sale is my Curious Evolved Blue USB cable - this is the latest cable from Curious and is a jump over the previous yellow curious cable which in itself was a very respectable cable. This cable easily competes with the best cables out there in the market!!! Gives a very natural tonal quality to the music
      These were only release a few months ago around October (??), the cable has barely been burnt in and is the first one advertised on Stereonet
      Get yourself one at a much cheaper price than RRP ($650?)
