The CEOL N9 is pretty much as connected a slice of hi-fi as you could hope for. It's a micro system that marries the traditional functions of CD playing and radio receiving with new-fangled streaming tech. It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirPlay support,...

All the connectivity you could hope for ; Superb sound quality ; Can be used to boost TV audio

Speakers not included

There's life in the micro system yet. Just about the most versatile hi-fi you'll find – once you've added suitable speakers, of course.

Great value


For the price this is a great piece of kit especially the internet radio. It is easy to set up to the internet . Makes a huge difference when playing vinyl sounds so much better than my old HiFi.

Better than expected


Good sound quality. I have paired with a pair of Dali Zensor 3, and it has a powerful and detailed sound. It is very comfortable to use only one device for everything, what I really like is the internet radio (sometimes I am in trouble what station to...

Could be great... But only 'good'


I bought this unit a couple of weeks ago. Set up was relatively easy and I downloaded the app. Initial impressions were really good, Internet radio, Spotify connect, cd, optical connections to run the TV in, Bluetooth... However the app is a bit flaky...

Excellent bit of kit


Very flexible piece of kit. All the features I have tried to use so far have worked as advertised and I am very happy with it indeed. The sound quality is very good and it drives my old B&W speakers like a charm.

it's great

Bought this to replace a previous Denon unit, which we had for about 14 years before it finally gave up. Decided on this model because it dose everything. Wanted to be able to stream but still play our cd's. This unit is really good. Great sound and...

Just what I wanted


It's just the sort of audio unit I wanted. Comprehensive and compact. Sound quality through my old B&W D1200 speakers is excellent. Just one caveat - it won't pick up BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra. You can choose it from the internet radio list but it...

Love it, amazing connectivity, great sound quality


Had high expectations for the rcdn9 and I am not disappointed, the most flexible unit you could ask for and plays everything with great quality. The fm tuner sounds great and having a good CD player intergrated a real bonus as my CD collection has come...

plasticky build but still looks good

Consumer review by: stinkyfive (

simplicity itself and a great sound


Being a fan of Denon already, it seemed logical to buy more of the same for our kitchen... Setup took about 3 minutes, typing in the wifi password took the longest time, it found my NAS drive immediately and bluetooth setup was similarly easy. Haven't...

ease of setup , great sound , looks very natty with a brilliant info display , excellent remote

it's a tad plasticky.
