I know the DCM-370 has the Bur-Brown 20bit DAC's, HDCD Decoding, MultiBit D/A Converters and all but how is the DCD-1520? I'm not sure how old it is (really like to know); when it was introduced, but I heard it was quite a nice player in it's day (whenever that was?). I know that Denon's build quality these days is not what it used to be but if the DCM-370 sounds better than the older single player DCD-1520 I think I'd go for it. The DCM-370 I see goes for around $300, and I think the DCD-1520 in it's day was quite a bit more expensive. But then again there are all those problems that people mention with the DCM-370, and the older DCD-1520 might be less sounding with it's age (I'm guessing no HDCD support or as good processor as the DCM-370) - Please help me consider.
