Denon D-F102DAB review


Serious hi-fi, only smaller, so they say

Excellent sound quality ; Good DAB radio ; Excellent CD player

iPod dock is extra

This Denon is the kick-off point for real hi-fi

Denon D-F102DAB


For that audiophile touch, the CD player comes separated from the main DAB receiver, which itself is stacked full of connections for fattening up the system with the option to add Denon's ASD-1R iPod dock (around ?80), cassette deck (remember those?!)...

Top quality build and design, tons of connections, excellent sound quality, iPod friendly

At this price, we'd like even more features

Denon D-F102DAB


Digital Radio is becoming increasingly important in hi-fi - see the likes of products like the Arcam DT91. But now - thanks to Denon - Digital Radio and the mini system have suddenly become an item, with products like the D-F102DAB system.

Excellent sound quality, Good DAB radio, Excellent CD player

iPod dock is extra

This Denon is the kick-off point for real hi-fi

Denon DF102


Exactly as expected from this product

Took a bit of time to get the sound right for both cd and dab, either one or the other was muffled, got there in the end, now fine

Obvious from the ratings I have given

None, except (a) price and (b) matching tape cassette deck has been discontinued by Denon

Denon DF102


For a mini system the sound is exceptional

Having to change features (bass/treble, balance etc) via the remote isa bit fiddly
