Denon is a Dab Hand
Denon’s S-52DAB Networked Audio System features the ability to stream music wirelessly from Internet Radio, network attached storage and PC or Mac computers and is obviously a DAB radio. It utilises networking Software from Denon’s Â£2000+ AV receivers and sound quality from Denon’s serious Hi-fi Â systems.
The full list of features are: DAB / FM Radio, a CD Player, a concealed iPod dock,Â advanced Audyssey Bass-XT and Dynamic EQ software. It also has the ability to decode MP3 and WMA (naturally) but also AAC, WAV and FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec). Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking forÂ audio streaming from PCs and Macs, networked storage,Â USB Sticks and Drives. Internet Radio (so that’s 7000 + stations), DAB and FM Radio and not forgetting the full alarm clock function.
The hugeÂ sound is all doneÂ throughÂ the four high-quality sound tuned speakers that feature long throw drive unitsÂ and passive bass radiators.Â So a big sound from a small unit.
TheÂ Denon S-52DABÂ will hurt yourÂ back pocket byÂ Â£500 placing it right at the top end of this market, but it looks as though it may be worth it if you need to get the best sound when listening to the ‘Archers’
And if all that still isnâ€™t enoughÂ they throw in a remote control, scroll wheel and an decent LCD display.
