Wide range of features but not for the inexperienced or inept

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 October 2008
  • Summary: I selected the Denon S-52 because of its extraordinarily broad feature set and despite its relatively high price. It offers AM, FM, and HD radio, CD capability, wired or wireless internet radio, Rhapsody, and playback from a PC or USB storage device, as well as satellite radio compatibility.

Good Unit, has some flaws

D. Pagel, Amazon
6 October 2008
  • Summary: I have to start off by saying I have done a bit of research on this unit, as the cost had to be justified, and I was not going to willy nilly replace my Bose Wave CD. Quick points, it is fuller that the Bose, it is louder than the Bose, but it is not as good at higher volumes as the Bose.

  • Summary: I agree with the other user who said that the S-52 is difficult to set up. It requires some patience in entering the Network information (e.g. WPA password), and a few times of saying, "Stink, I hit the wrong button again.

Great Sound - Poor Software Design

J. White, Amazon
5 October 2008
  • Summary: I have had this unit for a few months now and it provides very good sound quality even on internet radio. I also have a Rhapsody subscription and it works great. Initially I had problems getting the wireless to work until I finally gave up and connected a CAT 5 cable directly to my router and...

denon right on 'ish'

Michael J. Harrison, Amazon

  • 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.

Big punch

B. H. Pollheimer, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

Complete digital music system

James B. Spink "Jim", Amazon

  • 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.
