Denon D-M38DAB review

 

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

Denon D-M38DAB review

 

It's been around for a while, but it's still an absolute cracker

Impressive build for the money ; digital iPod connection ; exciting, enthusiastic delivery

Nothing at the price

Best microsystem up to £400, Awards 2011. It works best with better speakers, but even with Denon’s own-brand units, the D-M38DAB is an absolute cracker

IMHO, its just plain fantastic and has no right to be as good as it is for its cost!

Quality System

 

My rating of excellent is based on the intended usage of the unit: micro-system, not the be confused with a modular/rack system. If you are looking to shake windows and doors, look elsewhere, though, it should be noted that the system has the potential...

Great Sound, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up, Attractive Design, Powerful

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.

Denon DM38 without speakers

 

Using with 25 watt Panasonic speakers, and the sound is much better than my bose sounddock portable, plus it charges my iphone whilst playing music from it and it has DAB, and its cheaper! Its not portable of course! but small enough to be discreet.

The volume knob doesn't seem to work properly, but it does have a remote

Denon DM38 without speakers

 

not very expensive, sound ok

sound quality could be better esp. boosting the mid-range, lower-range; the high-frequencies aren't smooth enough.

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.
