Don't buy

chris jones, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: When I plug in an iPod, the unit stops playing in the middle of a song. It may play one or two songs before this happens, it may play 10-15. At first this was an occasional issue and I thought it might be related to the source of the music file or how the playlist was created. No such luck. Now the problem happens every time I play music.It has this problem with two iPods that work fine in my Bose Sound Dock.

Excellent, Feature-Packed Mini Receiver, With One Major Flaw

Patrick Bianchi, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: I really wanted to give this five stars, but it has one pretty major flaw that I will get to in a minute. First, the good. It sounds awesome! I have two JBL Monitor bookshelf speakers connected to it, and together they produce very full and rich sound. I rarely have to go past 20 on the volume meter with this combo.

  • Summary: I know most of our music is now stored on cloud, ipod etc, but I have a large collection of CD's for which I don't want to put hours converting them to mp3...(may be one day, but not now) If it had a CD player then would have bought it.

  • Summary: Installed this with little effort, connected quickly to our network (wireless) and have been listening to Internet Radio stations ever since. The iPhone app is also a nice feature to allow you to browse through different stations or play music from your iTunes collection.

This is an advanced system; worth every penny...

Big Sky Dreams, Amazon

  • Summary: Full Disclosure: I did not purchase this unit on Amazon. Got it cheaper on eBay, but I did purchase the speakers on Amazon(you can read my review on those as well). I have owned this system for two months now. If you want a CD player - this system is not for you.(I thought I still wanted it, I was wrong) If you want AM/FM radio - this system is not for you.

Great Receiver

Jim, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: The Ceol Piccolo (model DRA-N5) receiver performs great and sounds fabulous. The receiver connects wirelessly to the Internet with ease and is ready within minutes. Although this is a fairly small receiver, it packs 65 watts per channel, which is perfect for a living room or home office. There are lots of features on the receiver, which allow connectivity to a USB device, iPhone and iPod.

Great system. I just wish they had it with 4.1 option

  • Summary: Sound it quite nice. Adding Pandora was simple. Over all this was just what I wanted if it had 4.1 and was this size it would be perfect.

An intriguing net centric re-think of the classic mini stereo system

APC Reviews, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: The Denon DRA-N5BK Desktop Networking Music System is an interesting new approach to the classic "mini" bookshelf type music system. It substitutes digital music sources, such as MP3 players and smart phones, for the traditional CD player, and streaming audio sources, such as Internet and satellite music services, for over the air FM radio.

Audiophile's Delight

Matthew R. Kuiper, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: The Denon music networking system is a fantastic product. It is very easy to set up. Just attach a pair of book shelf speakers. I used a pair of Bose speakers that I had on hand and the sound quality is really good. I think most audiophiles will be very pleased with the tone of this machine. The system has many features like how it can hook up to wireless internet so you may access thousands of internet radio stations as well as having an ipod dock.

Five Stars, But Include Speakers

Ms_Ladi "...just wandering the world.", Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: This would be a great music package if it had some speakers included. I of course used my own Bose, but added speakers would be great. The wireless feature is convenient and it's a nice looking machine on my night stand.
