Arcam DV-27 vs Denon 3910

Does anyone have any idea why my Linn SACD sounds better on the Arcam (non SACD)than on my Denon 3910.
Because you prefer the Arcam's sound over the Denon. I'm not being sarcastic about it either. I have always found that a CD on a better player sounded better to my ears than an SACD on a lesser one. That's why I eventually gave up on chasing SACD sound and bought the best redbook player I could afford.
