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

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

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...
Summary: Now that I have this stereo set up and I know how to operate it (for the most part), I absolutely love it. The sound is amazing, and the features are stellar. It was easy to do the initial setup - I connected to my home Wifi network easily.
Summary: To be clear, you are not getting the speakers. While they are shown in pictures, and it's called a system, they are not included. They will add another $$$ to price if you don't have speakers. That being said, Denon makes some truly great stuff, and this is no exception.
Very high quality unit ~ Extremely nice company to do business with

Summary: I literally spent weeks searching for an Internet based radio that was capable of delivering room filling sound. All of the most popular ones seemed to be more oriented toward the type you would use as a bedside clock radio with very poor quality speakers.
Summary: Does every thing it should. Sound quality is good, but you'll never get a compressed mp3 to sound as good as cd. That's no fault of the denons though. Running 2 pairs of speakers through a switch...old leak 2020 in one room and q acoustic in another.
Klang und Leistung super, manchmal etwas umständlich

Summary: Das Gerät sieht sehr schön aus und hat durch die Digitalendstufe auch ordentlich Leistung auch für Standboxen (betreibe es an Teufel Ultima 40 MKII) in größeren Räumen. Die Bedienung ist einfach, manchmal etwas umständlich (manches kann man nur über die Fernbedienung machen, wie z.B.
