    Default Anyone compared CD sound Denon 2900 VS Jolida

    Should have specificed Jolida JD100 in title.

    Just curious, picked a very pretty 2900. I know I should just put it in the rig but am curious if anyone has compared the 2.

    I think the 2900 has tweaks people are doing to them.

    TIA, Tracy

    I have a Denon I cant remember the model but i think its a 2910 or something like that. I also have a Jolida with EI tubes. I will say the jolida is clearer, more solid bass, cleaner highs then the Denon running a sacd! I can take the same sacd put it in the Jolida ( the jolida can read the redbook side of things but not the sacd part) and I will pick the sound of the jolida every time. this made me want to try putting a tube buffer on the Denon. I still have to give that a shot and see how it comes out.

    I thought about replacing my Jolida CDP with a Denon 3910 so I would have SACD playback in the 2 ch rig. Fortunately the one that was for sale was also available to try first, and I'm glad it was. The Denon was very good, however as erniejade related it just didn't give me the SQ that my Jolida CDP with EI Elite tubes does.

    Last weekend I had the chance to directly compare the newest Oppo universal player against a Denon 5910, and I'm not sure what the salesperson was smoking, but the 5910 was significantly better with SACD and redbook, and I thought it even did a better presentation of std def DVD's.

    Thanks guys, you saved me some time trying to disassemble and reassemble my gear.

    The 2900 is sure pretty.

    I guess I will stick with my original plan of letting it go with the RT35is and NAD 304 to my sister inlaw.
