Summary: I looked for a VERY long time for some sort of mini system to go in a large living room with tall ceilings. After reading many reviews, and testing all available at my local stores, I decided to go with this Denon. I did test the highly rated iSource from Polk, & the whole Bose line but wasn't impressed. I am very happy with this. Plenty of bass(that was my concern), & plenty loud for the large room that it is in.
Pros: Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Powerful
Summary: Great little system for small to mid-size rooms. Quality components, good sound. Systems is a snap to set-up. Suggest upgrading the speaker wire and adding a subwoofer to round-out the sound. I chose the Yamaha YST-SW216BL - killer little sub at a great price. I would rate the sound quality of the system (with a subwoofer) as very good to excellent, rivalling much larger and more expensive systems. If you have space considerations this is the system for you.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: Difficult to decide which buttons to use to tune or modify station selections. Also, 10% total harmonic distortion is what one finds in cheap boom boxes and is unacceptable for a quality audio amplifier.
Pros: Attractive Design, Great Sound
Cons: Tuner functions awkward, User Manual Inadequate
