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

  • 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.

  • 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. 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...

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.
