Summary: How I use the product: Best uses: listening to cds, connecting and listening to songs on the ipod. Pros: Looks good. Features are ahead of its time. Things that aren't so great about it: Average sound quality even with gold banana plugs. No speaker grilles.(I think the Denon N7 is a lot of hype because of the 100th anniversary)The SCN7 denon speakers are binding clips. I feel the speakers made for the rcdn7 should also have utilized banana plugs instead of binding clips.
