Denon CEOL Piccolo DRA-N5

 

A compact, versatile all-in-one music system with Wi-Fi, Spotify and AirPlay.

Refined yet exciting sound ; Stylish, compact design ; Plays music from a wide range of sources

No DAB or Bluetooth ; Menus a little sluggish at times

Elsewhere the system musters 2 x 65W power output, and uses a ‘simple and straight’ circuit design to keep interference to an absolute minimum.

Denon CEOL Piccolo review

 

A diminutive standard-bearer for next-gen micro hi-fi, the Denon's got Spotify, a control app and it'll stream your own tunes, right up to 24-bit. The dock's 30-pin, but who cares when you've also got AirPlay? Add Q Acoustics 2020i speakers for awesome...

Denon CEOL Piccolo

 

Full, natural and always enjoyable sound, Never a hint of brightness, Vast format support, Spotify and AirPlay

A dash of extra attack would be lovely on occasion

No matter what the source, the CEOL Piccolo will play all your music in superb style

Denon Ceol review

 

Denon has been upgrading a number of AV components, including the Ceol and RCD-N7, to AirPlay compatibility via a free scheme throughout 2011. By the time you read this, AirPlay will be available out of the box on many Denon components.

While you can use your own, at around £130 these are also an excellent choice if building your system from scratch. Separate speakers are another plus here, as they help create a greater stereo image and can be more easily manoeuvred and placed to...

Denon CEOL Piccolo DRA-N5

 

Purchased as a bedroom hifi and alarm clock that would do Airplay. Stylish, capable, and feature rich. B/W only display (some competitors have colour to display album art), but still has that Mac-like cool styling. Very good sound quality (my other...

Remote is full-featured, but unlit, a real failing in a unit that actually includes an alarm clock! Wifi seems to latch on to neighbouring unsecured wifi rather than staying locked on mine (this may be fixed by the "manual" config option, we will see)....
