Simaudio CP-8 Owners: Did you know that it was a Denon?

Simaudio has recently disclosed that their $18,000 CP-8 Pre/Pro was, in practice, a modified $1,199 Denon AVR-2808CI. But, they say this has been well-known for some time…

“We don’t hide it. It’s a Denon engine under the hood, and I say it with pride, because it’s reliable and a Denon engine is a high-performance engine.”

You can read the details here:

So, are there any Simaudio Moon CP-8 owners out there? When you bought your CP-8, did you consider it well-known that it was a modified Denon?

This was told to me by

This was told to me by SimAudio way back when the CP-8 was released, so I doubt that there was subterfuge involved.  I suspect that there were very few of these sold but it would be interesting to hear from any owners about what they knew and when they knew it.

Well, about 200 by Simaudio's count, or $3.6 million at retail (of course, less on the actual sale price).  But yes, I'm looking to hear from purchasers; how was this product reprented?
