Denon CEOL RCD-N8

 

A stunning network music system with AirPlay and Spotify support

Sumptuous sound quality ; Impressive build and styling ; Easy to use

No Bluetooth or DAB ; Speakers not included

Finally, the RCD-N8’s digital amplifier musters 2 x 65W of power. Inside, the N8 uses a fully digital concept from input source to output stage, with a ‘simple and straight’ circuit design to keep interference to a minimum.

Denon CEOL RCD-N8

 

Stacks of connectivity in a compact system makes this an attractive option, but it falls just short of the best sound quality available

Well-built ; Well-featured ; Warm, punchy character ; Well balanced ; Rhythmic

No Bluetooth ; No DAB ; Not the last word in refinement and detail ; Can lack organisation with busier recordings

When you put this system in context, it’s very hard not to draw comparisons with the Marantz M-CR610, and Marantz’s unit takes the Denon when it comes to refinement, organisation and fine detail.

Denon CEOL RCD-N8

 

The Denon CEOL is a well thought out compact stereo, providing good quality from a wide range of sources, including your network and the internet.

Good sound quality ; Wide support for various media ; Effective remote control ; Good selection of inputs

Poorly made speaker cables sap confidence

Denon has engineered this system extremely well to provide good-quality sound with wide media access at a reasonable price. It also offers an upgrade path. Just add higher-quality loudspeakers for better (and louder) sound, or plug in an active...

Further to the above, spoke to Denon who advised doing a factory reset and a user reset. And spoke to D&M who service Denon product. Both advised that Airplay with BT router was an issue, and that using another router was the way forward. I reset the...

unworkable

I'm afraid I have to disagree with the review above and the Which review. I bought the N8 in Feb this year, and have not been able to make a wireless connection to access itunes from my PC, despite many hours trying. After reading numerouns blogs, I...

A brilliant system

  (Rating Hidden)

I bought this system just a few weeks ago because it was the top-rated system in the Which? best buys table. It was between this and the £150 Pioneer, but I am really glad I spent the extra on the Denon. It is excellent. The sound quality is top notch...

Denon RCD-N8 CEOL

 

Great all in one digital media solution, works well with apple app. Sound is very good quality and easily fills a large lounge, used it with QA 2020i speakers and good speaker cable. Also connected to TV via optical digital in, great for music channels...

DAB would be nice but internet radio almost makes it irrelevant
