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 RCD-N7 Receiver/Dock/Streaming Thing Preview

 

If Denon RCD-N7 is an office solution, it is the most advanced one we've ever seen with Apple Airplay support, streaming, high quality five-way binding posts, and pre-outs for a sub and external amp.

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

The trusty old CD may be on its way out, making way for a variety of streaming services from the cloud, but Denon's D-N7 multimedia system keeps the traditionalists happy with this mini Hi Fi system with matching speakers promising to be the white knight.

Powerful amp; Good connectivity; Hi-fi sound

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