Summary: I am very happy with this! Glad I made the right choice! I just cant get my ipod touch to work in the usb/ipod connection. But I can get the ipod to red and white av connection instead, I think. I hope so because I got it primarily for my ipod.
Summary: I shopped around for a bookshelf system I could hear in my woodshop over the sound of the power tools. This system really does the job. The quality of the sound is great. I have Bose speakers in my home theater and although the Denon system does not have nearly as much wattage, the sound quality is comparable. This is not to say it is not loud enough. I don't know how high the volume level goes, but most of the time I listen to music at about 18 or 20.
Summary: Exactly what I was searching for. I needed a replacement for my kitchen sound system which recently decided to walk the spirit trail. I had no idea what to buy but a friend of mine, who is REALLY into sound systems, recommended the Denon to me. I have had three sound systems in the past 12 years and I won't mention the names of the others but one was a highly respected - and expensive - name. This Denon makes them all seen like old transistor radios from the '60s!
