Summary: We purchased a Denon S-52 three years ago from a Canadian distributor and have had nothing but headaches with this expensive and disappointing product. We have had the system repaired once already (again, for a hefty price) and it is once again giving us headaches e.g.
Summary: The network feature is awful. Wireless rarely works, even if sat within a foot of the access point. Ethernet is better, but only just. That constantly drops out too. However, by far the worst feature is a lack of graphic equaliser.
Summary: I have purchased and subsequently returned two S-52's. It is hard to believe the manufacturer has not pulled these off the market. It is the same type of disregard that Klipsch showed when they knowingly flooded the market several years ago with defective 4.2 THX computer speaker systems.

Summary: When my oldest daughter turned 13 I got her a shelf stereo that she has enjoyed for years. Great sound, mutli CD player and easy to use. Three years later I wanted to get the same stereo for my youngest daughter when she turned 13, but the system I purchased before was not available.
Summary: I bought this product because it was the only device I could find with CD, Internet Radio, Network Music, an iPod and USB port, plus normal FM/AM radio with an alarm clock. That says a lot for the device that it's packed with so many features.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for Christmas. It is very sleek and compact and has everything one needs on a hi-fi system. The bass however is very heavy and there is no equalizer function to bring it down. We had to return the product.
