Marnatz 7001 SACD to Denon 1950AR??

I had a Denon 1650AR from 2001 to 2009 and it was very good. I went through some other high end players from 2009 to 2012 but due to $$ issues settled on a Marantz DVD 7001 because as a combo player it was very good at music. There is now a Denon 1650AR near to me for a reasonable price. Am I going backwards or forward by going back to it? It was a heck of a player but is it better then the 7001 DVD/SACD player??
