Denon DNP-2000NE is the new music streamer in the block. And it is here to redefine the versatility of streaming devices. It aims to do that by integrating the HEOS streaming platform.
But versatility is not the only thing that the DNP-2000NE has going for. It even has support for streaming high-resolution audio.
To be exact, it can play hi-res audio up to 32-bit/384 kHz. In case you didn’t know, that is much better than the CD-quality audio that most of the other streamers boast about. Wondering what makes it so versatile?
The support for the HEOS platform means that the Denon DNP-2000NE can play music from tons of different music streaming services.
From Spotify and Tidal to Internet Radio, you will have the flexibility to listen to them all. Do you not want to use streaming platforms? You don’t need to!

Also, it enables you to use Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Siri for voice control. So, you don’t have to add another remote to your couch after getting the Denon DNP-2000NE. But what about the sound quality?
Denon went all-in in that regard. Under the hood, you will find Advanced Processing from Denon that supports up-sampling to 384KHz.
It even has bit extension support of up to 32-bit, while the USB Type B connection offers support for native hi-res files. That includes DSD256! In addition, the Denon DNP-2000NE packs 32-bit/384kHz ES9018K2M digital to analog converters.
Denon has configured them in a double-differential mode, much like the flagship DCD-A110 SACD player. And the DCD-A110 SACD player is already known for offering a much-refined performance.
Moreover, the Denon DNP-2000NE packs a Master Clock design. It works to suppress jitter and isolates the analog to digital circuit boards from each other. So, you can expect to get a redefined music-listening experience.
Wondering what’s the connectivity of the DNP-2000NE is like? The streamer comes with WiFi, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2, Ethernet, and many others.
