Summary: This would be so much better with a bit more software development on the firmware and more particularly, to make an android app which actually works. There is no viable AirPlay or remote app for droid. Reading from USB is fussy, difficult and often slow to navigate, especially on large mixed volumes. The Online Music function is useless to most users as Napster no longer exists and Last FM requires a paid subscription on a hardware device.
Pros: good build quality , good feature set , satisfactory fm band ii tuner
Cons: useless android support , underdeveloped firmware
Simple but potent Tuner/Internet radio/Network music hub
2 October 2013
Summary: Was sceptical whether to go for this tuner by comments from previous reviews, tempted to pay more for a more sophisticated NAS/internet radio unit. this would have left me short of the FM function I originally sought after. The customer service Gent informed me I had a 14 Day return option, so I went for this with my fingers crossed. I am not disappointed!
Pros: user friendly plug and playability , intuitive navigation/operation , quality of the sound - for its class , kit complete - batteries for remote & rca cable! , 'party mode' button on remote...scared to press it
Cons: internet radio menu very easy to get lost in , android app useless official and another i tried
Summary: This network streamer has had a firmware update in May this year that adds gapless audio support as well as the ability to fast forward and rewind via both USB and network streaming. Reviews suggest that the sound quality is not quite up there with the likes of the Cambridge Audio or Marantz, however I find it nearly up there with the sound quality of my NAD C565 CD Player, and obviously far more convenient to be classed as a replacement, at least as far as convenience...
Summary: Typical Denon, for the money it's untouchable. Deep rich full presentation. Clean highs and fruity lows, it's a lovely rich sound. However - Wifi signal is easily dropped unless your router is very close.
Summary: This technology might have been around for a while, but is probably still considered still emerging from a hi-fi perspective. At sub £200 this unit offers a great value introduction to streaming from your ipad or network server. Offers acceptable fidelity, particularly if hard wired from your router, and whilst the sound is a little thinner, the Apple Airplay functionality is great whilst still returning acceptably decent sound quality.
Pros: apple airplay , sound quality , value for money
Cons: the denon app (ios) is useless , did i mention how useless the denon app is?
Summary: Actually, the DNP720AE is not bad for it's current price. A word of warning though, Denon no longer support Napster on this device and have not done so since Feb 2012! If you are thinking about buying it to go with other Denon separates then I would say consider it. Streaming from laptop, airplay, and Last FM all work fine, and the sound quality is good in my opinion. The contol app for apple i phone / i pod works fine. The tuner is good also.
Summary: I can't express how disappointed I am with this product! The DNP-720AE inserts a pause between tracks so something like Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon is completely wrecked. On top of this the Denon Andriod App does not support the DNP-720AE and the third party Android Apps are only work-in-progress and not very useful. In contrast, I have a Sonos Play:5 that works perfectly with Dark Side, and the available Andoid Apps are excellent.
Pros: sound quality
Cons: pauses between tracks , not supported by android app
