  • Conclusion: Excellent audio quality and top-drawer upscaled HD visuals make this a worthy CD/DVD player/virtual surround sound system packed into a tiny compact shell. Even if charging 900 sheets seems a smidge excessive.

With just two speakers and a mind-bogglingly slim subwoofer (Believe me, I’ve seen it in the flesh) the Denon Smart S-302 produces surround sound audio for your DVD in addition to upscaling them to 1080p for cutting...
