It might look just like its predecessor, the D-M37DAB, but this little system is a surprisingly worthwhile upgrade

Denon's been doing this longer than most, and it shows. This is a very well-sorted, cost-effective system

On the outside nothing much has changed, but inside the new Denon is an altogether improved beast of a micro

Same, solid styling; digital iPod input; sounds dynamic, punchy - and better than before

The USB connection is arguably not as neat as an integrated iPod dock

It looks great, but the sound is mediocre. most boomboxes have as good or better sound. I use it for transcribing music so I was hoping for better sound quality. It costs too much for what it delivers. I can't believe denon doesn't include the cable to...

Compact System, Great Sound


Purchased the DM38 to replace an old Yamaha bookshelf system. The Denon is very compact, taking up less than half the space of the old system. Easy to set up and operate. Also bought the matching Denon speakers which give full rich sound, especially...

not worthy of price.


It is meant for european music,you will not get of full value of your rupee 31000. Indian music does not sound entertaining.If you increase volume to 15th level, sound start distorting.Not made for indians.

Product Specifications

The D-M3 is a Super Micro Component System that gives you a CD player and a tuner in a single unit. With high-power out-put of 20 watts for each stereo channel (total 40 watts) and highly-acclaimed DENON Hi-Fi technology in the audio circuitry, the rich, high-quality sound from a unit as compact as the D-M3 is truly impressive. The D-M3 personal audio system combines a superb-sounding CD/radio/amplifier electronics module with 2-speaker Bass Reflex System for a Dynamic Crystal-clear Sound. The D-M3 also sports three types of timers that let you program the unit to suit your lifestyle: ON/OFF timers turn the D-M3 on or off at the same time each day, and the Sleep timer can be set to turn it off up to 60 minutes after bedtime. And for the future, whenever you want to add an MiniDisc recorder or cassette deck, the D-M3 is equipped with 3 sets of input terminals and 2 sets of output terminals to let you easily expand your system.
