nice radio but do not expect more

  • Summary: The song quality is not as good as Denon S-301. HD radio did not show much improvement than traditional radio because of the sound quality. A little slow to change stations. Good for bedroom use..
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile

denon right on 'ish'

Michael J. Harrison, Amazon
14 May 2010
  • Summary: I have owned this for twelve months now. I chose the Denon after much research. I wanted an ipod dock with wifi radio(we can't get dab). My wife wanted a CD player. This is possibly the only option in such circumstances. Set up is very simple. The wifi connection has always worked (although radio 5 can sometimes disconnect). I now see no point in dab radio. The wifi lets us play radio from podcasts to peruvian pop.I am only able to save to favourites using the remote.

Big punch

B. H. Pollheimer, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought the Denon primarily for the DAB and CD combination. The DAB reception in the room we use this unit is not great so I wanted a good tuner and the fall back option of Internet radio if needed. The DAB works very well through varying weather conditions and I am impressed with it. It is easy to set up. The CD is easy to use and I can see no problems. Have not used the memory stick input yet so cannot comment. iPod dock works well and is very handy.

Denon We Go, Becoming a DAB Hand In The Process

BNibbles, Ciao
12 December 2009
  • Excerpt: "...impervious to being sworn at. '''The Denon S52DAB''' (described by Denon as a “Wireless Network CD Music System”) is an interesting proposal, looking not unlike one of those Bose All-In-One efforts that they are so coy about printing the full price of except in the small print of their ads. Yes, it’s a stereo system but with that unconvincing separation between its speakers that will leave a true hi-fi nut tut-tutting. However, for what it is; a ...
  • 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 .

Denon S-52: First Try To Set It Up, Denon and On and...

12 December 2009
  • Summary: 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. The Denon S52DAB (described by Denon's manual as a "Wireless Network CD Music System") is an interesting proposal, looking not unlike one of those Bose All-In-One efforts that they are so coy about printing the...
  • Pros: Versatile and feature-packed
  • Cons: Tricky network set-up and largely menu-driven, so it takes time

High quality sound and excellent features in a small unit

StedicUK, Ciao
18 April 2009
  • 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. This review is based on 18 months of use in a home environment. ==Features== *Single CD Player *Universal iPod dock (top mounted) *FM/AM Radio *DAB Radio *Wireless/Wired network connections *Internet radio streaming ...
  • Pros: Compact, stylish, reasonably priced, DAB, Internet radio, Wireless media centre

Complete digital music system

James B. Spink "Jim", Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: This unit is everything you need in a modern digital music system. I wonder what we would have made of it as little as ten years ago! I have a few gripes with it, however, the main one being the "Audyssey" sound processing at low listening levels. This is a supposedly intelligent "loudness" system for "improving" the sound at low volume. Unfortunately it can't be switched off and with some sound sources it gives a very boomy bass effect until the volume is turned up.
