Summary: I would like to think myself moderately proficient in technology, so I took the leap and purchased the S-52 from a local reseller. Wireless connectivity was key for me. If you read some of the other reviews, you'll get a sense that the wi-fi set-up is not as intuitive as it should be.
Summary: The Denon-S52 packs a lot of features in one box. The sound is very good. Being able to listen to Internet radios is a great feature. However this product is not user-friendly... My wife is not comfortable using it.
Summary: I opened it and set it up in about 15 mintues, including the WiFi internet radio. Very Simple. It looks nice, great for a contemporary setting. The sound is great for such a small piece of equipment loaded with almost every feature you can imagine for an all in one.
Excerpt: For once, I’m writing about something I don’t own, but having spent the best part of a day getting one of these to work, and succeeding, I reckon that all I’m not entitled to comment on is its durability, although it does seem quite impervious to being sworn at.
Pros: All in one and very versatile . Good sound given a quality source
Cons: Fiddly set - up . All menu driven, so a bit tricky to navigate too .
Summary: I agree with everything the first reviewer says - if being able to do everything in one neat box is your priority, you will like this. It looks neat and unobtrusive, and can play from CD's or USB memory sticks, as well as every imaginable type of radio.
High quality sound and excellent features in a small unit

Excerpt: Synopsis The Denon S-52 is a compact, standalone audio system. It is one of the smaller systems that Denon offer but is packed with features which make it a cut above standard systems and I think make it an adaptable piece of technology.
Pros: Compact, stylish, reasonably priced, DAB, Internet radio, Wireless media centre
Summary: Das Gerät hat sehr viele Funktionen und wurde teilweise mit dem Kompaktgerät von Bose verglichen. Deshalb haben wir uns für diese Kompaktanlage von Denon entschieden. Wir sind leider vom Klang nicht überzeugt. Vor allem klassische Musik hört sich auf dem Gerät recht dumpf an.
Summary: Nach Empfehlung, Probehören im HiFi-Studio (nur CD)und dem Studium der Rezensionen hatte ich das S-52 von Denon als hochwertige Soundquelle für den Einsatz in der Küche auserkoren; ich wollte ein kompaktes Gerät mit sehr gutem Klang, mit dem Radio- und CD-Hören in der Küche genussvoller werden.
