For years i have used hi-fi separates, – so to move to an all-in-one unit seemed odd, but i bought this on the back of reviews. Vey easy to setup, just connected my excellent b&w speakers, did a search for the dab radio stations, and came back with less available than i would have hoped for but that i think is down to the cheap aerial that is supplied, so i have ordered a metal telescopic. And for this reason this review has lost a star. What amazes me about this little unit is the way that it appears to adapt to the different source units connected or played. Cd quality is brilliant, as good as my old nad if not better, – dab quality radio is great on the few stations that i can pick up, (hope the new aerial will improve the signal reception) as is anything connected via bluetooth, even my old ipod connected via the analogue setting was okay. I already knew what real sound quality is like, but my teenage son and his mates were blown away when they connected up their smartphones to play their “tunes”. The kids today are accepting of poor quality sound played via a mono speaker that over boosts the bass so apparently knew nothing about true stereo sound and how it can project the sound.
Lovely piece of kit; coupled with my old (but still excellent) b & w dm4s it does everything i could wish for big, sumptuous orchestral music and clean, well-defined chamber music.
I love music again this system is a winner on every setting. Genuine review my speakers are q aquatics 2050 thought i might need smaller speaker but this system brings the best out ov them. I am not a music expert but i no a good sound and this system delivers.
Great quality that you’d expect from denon apart from the t-shaped wire dab aerial which is rubbish. I spent less than £10 on replacing it with a telescopic aerial and now get excellent dab reception rather than the “digital bubbles” with the supplied aerial. You’d think denon would do the same and supply a better quality aerial as standard.
- Amazing little combo unit!
- Small but perfectly formed
- Superb sound & build quality.

Thought i’d add a quick review as there’s only one other on here so far. I bought this based on the what hi-fi 5* review. Edit: i’ve now gotten used to the cd player and it sounds excellent. Currently listening to ‘who’s next’ and it’s never sounded as good as this. The real surprise is the bluetooth. I thought that would sound patchy at best but so far it’s sounding great. Considering i’ve only tested it on spotify (non premium, so low quality sound files) it’s sounding unbelievably good. If you listen to a lot of streaming music or mp3s on a phone / tablet with bluetooth then this is definitely worth getting. Oh forgot to add – don’t buy it from amazon ( i used richer sounds). Amazon are one of the most unethical companies in the world.
Great sound quality at a reasonable price. Am running record deck, cassette and pc through it. Compact and reassuringly heavy. Very easy to set up and use.
Very impressed with this , cd playback is outstanding, bluetooth is fantastic, dab is brilliant, fm radio is a little less great , tho still better than my kitchen radio, ( new). Powerful enough amp and easy to use system. Buy it folks , you wont be disappointed ?.
Feature-wise, the cd is fairly silent in terms of mechanical noise, and is quite agile to operate. The remote offers a numeric keypad which i had missed dearly in my previous mini hi-fi. I had to deactivate cd autoplay, as i don’t always want to listen to the first track. But aside from that, the rest is very good. Bass and treble adjustments go from -10 to +10, there is a dynamic bass option that punches greater bass through at lower volumes, and there is also a ‘direct’ option that keeps sound closer to the source. One of the unexpected high points of this system, at least to me, is that it’s got two optical inputs, and both support 24-bit, 192khz stereo sound. That’s a blast at this price point. Immediately ordered an optical cable for my mac and started playing hi res flacs like a champion. The sound that comes out of this unit is very balanced.
I am very pleased with this unit which replaces my ancient component hifi that used to occupy four times the space. I have connected it to my existing wall-mounted mission speakers, and the sound quality is excellent. The tuner was easy to set up and is very sensitive to dab and fm signals: excellent reception using simple wire indoor aerial supplied. Good ir remote control that works over several metres. Bluetooth from iphone is excellent. I have also connected an apple airport express to one of the optical audio inputs to play music over airplay.
Great little amplifier, good sound and very easy to use.
Great sound connected to a pair of mission speakers.
This denon rceiver functions extremely well. I am using it with some sony brooklands speakers which have a warm british sound. The cd produces detailed sound which will encourage you to have extended listening sessions. Similarly i find i now enjoy listening to dab radio. You will be well advised to replace the ribbon aerial that is supplied. Bear in mind that has a short lead. )it has bluetooth so you can link your pc, laptop or tablet to play any sound files.
Great hifi in a small space. The denon feels well made and there’s enough weight to inspire confidence that there’s good components inside.
Paired with q acoustics 3010i compact bookshelf speakers and the sound is good.
I’m familiar with these denon’s. 4yrs back, i purchased a dm39dab to substitute an getting older separates hi-fi process & i was not unhappy. I have bought the dm41dab for the further bluetooth, 2 digital inputs & improved audio excellent. Once more i’m not upset. The sound good quality is noticeably improved over the dm39. Primarily my turntable by means of the anologue input. The comfort of the bluetooth is brief & uncomplicated to established up & operates effectively. The tuner is superb, however i do have an exterior radio aerial fitted. I’m using it with denon’s scm39 speakers at the minute. Although i’m considering scm41 & q acoustic’s 3020’s. It’ll perform perfectly with an array of unique speakers of your preference. If you’re thinking of this to exchange an more mature denon model or spending plan or outdated hi-fi separates method, you should not be dissatisfied. It actually is fantastic sound copy for the money & you would have to devote noticeably a lot more to get close.
For the limited time i experienced the device i liked it, nonetheless. Out of the box on/off button would not work, start off up would only operate with remote, attempted factory reset as instructed by denon, no luck. . 3hrs later on red flashing dot gentle at 2. 5 sec interval indicated inside amplifier failure. This is the next unit returned with practically particularly the similar fault. . Amazon issued immediate refund. Its a really wonderful device with good stable designed quality, and i however want to make the purchase, and will obtain yet again when my 2nd refund is issued, and cross my fingers.
Really happy with this amp, clear sounding on dab, and punchy audio from cd.
Unquestionably fantastic piece of package simply cannot fault it in any way. Seem replica is great and blue tooth is fantastic.
Like a earlier review on listed here, fantastic method but unfortunately the cd player just described unsupported disc for every cd i tried using – so it is remaining returned.
