Summary: I love the stereo so far. The sound quality is much richer than the little $100 Pioneer unit I bought last year. One note: be ready to strip and twist speaker wires to connect to receiver unit. Haven't had to do that in years. Unfortunately the user manual is only available on a CD-ROM which comes with the unit and does not work. Each time I tried to load the pdf file, it locked up my laptop and I had to power off to get it to shut down.
Summary: I have only had this system a few weeks, and I bought it for the specific purpose of using with a turntable. I wanted something small and simple with nice sound, and it has delivered. The reason for four stars is no phono stage. If this system had a a phono stage (especially with the current vinyl bubble), it would be perfect!
Great Looking, Decent Sounding. A little to much $$

Summary: I'm still getting to know the system so I'll try to update this review as time goes by. This unit fits a certain need; size, look, and function. It is nice and compact and it doesn't draw attention to itself. It works like a champ too. The sound quality I would describe as very detailed in the midrange with gentle high and and a very decent low end, especially for the size. Modern recordings sound great on it but older recordings can sound a bit muffled.
Summary: I didn't want to comment on this system until I had it for a while. Well it has been about 1 month now and the sound just gets better every time. When I first pulled it out of the box the high's(treble) were a little compressed but now they are starting to open up. The Bass is deep and not boomy, but this depends a lot on speaker placemen and of course volume.
Pros: Nice controls Easy to use remote control Compact Well Made, great quality Sounds great
Cons: Lacks AM radio Can be harsh at times No AC outlet in back only one set of RCA input plugs
Summary: A small and powerful system for a small sized room with nice sound and plenty of connections. I bought nicer speaker cables to replace the OEM ones, definitely improved the sound. It would be great if they could support android phones as well as ios devices but that's the only downside i could find.
Summary: The Good: Sound - Astonishingly awesome for such a small unit. Build Quality Size Looks The Bad: I wanted two things out of this unit. The ability to hook up a turntable and the ability to hook up my phone. I read up on a variety of bookshelf systems and decided on this one because of the good reviews on sound. The turntable works nicely with a preamp, so no complaints there. The problems started when I tried to hook up my HTC One X+.
Summary: I was very skeptical before I purchased this product. I read through several reviews and researched a number of placed before I decided to buy it. I don't regret what I bought. The sound quality is premium and is a decent for my condo. Here is the only drawback I found: When you connect your iPod to the device, you pretty much can control everything only through the remote.
Summary: By itself, the Denon D-M39S is a decent compact stereo system. It delivers a clean sound that can easily fill a room. Unfortunately, the bass in this system is sorely lacking. However, it does allow you to add a subwoofer to it. In my case, I added a Polk Audio PSW10 10-Inch Monitor Series Powered Subwoofer (also sold on Amazon) and the Polk speaker really brought this system to life.
