Rock solid for what it is

Sugith Varughese, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: I have had this unit since shortly after it originally came out, as a bedroom system. So it's been seeing daily use for years. As it is, it's been a rock solid performer which has not broken. Just don't expect anything resembling real surround sound. The sound quality is good, though not audiophile grade. Plenty of hookups for most users. I wish I could upgrade to the same unit with blu-ray and better speakers, but Denon doesn't make anything like this anymore.

  • Summary: Great companion for a FLAT screen HD TV. Good stereo, decent surround sound. Not for audiophile, but OK for no-fuss good looking home theater.
  • Pros: Pleasing to the eye, good sound especially from CD/DVD, easy setup
  • Cons: ? Looks kinda flimsy. Many reviewers (here & elsewhere) had issues with it breaking down.

Sounds Great

E. Diehm, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this unit and am still hopeful that I don't run into the same problems as many owners have. I've had this for six months with only one issue - the remote control stopped functioning completely. Although it would have been replaced under warranty, I was shopping for a universal (Logitech Harmony) remote already and just gave up with the Denon remote. The I-Pod functionality is great and the sound is rich and clear. It looks great and was easy to set up.

excellent system

S. P. B. "Bostonsean", Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this system for about 4 or 5 months now and could not be happier. I was able to get rid of this old 5 speaker system that I had along with the mess of cables. As with almost everything in this world, there is a trade off. Sure this 3 speaker "virtual" surround sound is never going to give the same effect as having one of the little satellite speakers physically right behind your head but the "surround" sound feeling you get from these is actually really...

User Review

  • Summary: I just bought and installed this yesterday. The first and most striking thing as you remove it from the large box, is the substantial feel of the components. They feel heavy, solid and well built with a beautiful finish, especially the solid brushed aluminium front to the main unit. The unit is very easy to set up without having to resort to the extreme measure of reading the (large) instruction manual first and it takes less than half an hour.
  • Pros: Awesome sound
  • Cons: Nothing yet!

s-101 un equipo moderno

otiliano, Ciao
30 September 2006
  • Summary: Denon Smart Life Series S-101 es el nombre completo del home cinema que os presentamos a continuación. El boom producido por iPod y la casa Apple se puede apreciar en diseños posteriores y ajenos a esta entidad. El Denon S-101 es un claro ejemplo; en lugar de incluir el sistema tradicional de 8 altavoces para conseguir el efecto del sonido envolvente, simplemente precisa para ello de un sistema Dolby Virtual Speaker 2.1 teniendo que colocar únicamente dos altavoces...
  • Pros: ES COMPACTO, COMPATIBLE CON IPOD
  • Cons: ESTE EQUIPO NO ES 7 . 1
