Review: Denon RCD-N7

 

It's compact and versatile, and Apple's latest wireless tech comes built-in. Is this the Holy Grail of mini stereos?

Small, smart, clean design that fits in nearly any nook or cranny. Wireless streaming from Macs and PCs works with ease. Ready to roll with AirPlay, Pandora, Napster, Last.fm and internet radio

Included networking directions are a total yard sale. Matched speakers underperform slightly. AirPlay is an extra

Denon CEOL (RCD-N7)

 

Great looks and build, integrated iPod dock, fluid sound with lovely midrange, built-in wi-fi

The Marantz M-CR603 sounds punchier, no DAB

A smooth, detailed sound, plus AirPlay support right out of the box, nets the Denon CEOL a well-deserved five stars

Denon CEOL RCD-N7 review

 

Denon's latest hi-fi might look dinky, but it's a tech-packed, AirPlay-enabled Tardis inside

Denon CEOL RCD-N7 Review

 

However you say it, the CEOL has a great mix of style, features and facilities

We have it on reasonably good authority that Denon’s AirPlay-capable hi-fi is pronounced ‘Coal’. We say ‘reasonably good’, as last week that same Denon rep was calling it the ‘Kee-ol’.  If you wa

Powerful amp; Good connectivity; Hi-fi sound

Matched speakers lack bass; No built-in Spotify streaming; No DAB radio
