Sound doesn't sound that "surroundy"

Denon S-302 2.1-channel DVD System


It may only be a 2.1-channel DVD system, but does the old adage that you get what you pay for ring true?

As 2.1-channel systems go, the S-302 is expensive and its virtual surround performance is underwhelming, but if you wanted surround sound you'd buy a 5.1 system, right? The S-302 is aimed at those who don't have room for six speakers but want the best...

Denon S-302


The Denon S-302 is a DVD Home Theatre System is one of the Denon Smart series in home theatre systems. The Denon S-302 has shown marked improvement. The disc tray slides smoothly and quietly every time. There are different sockets including those for...

Excellent audio quality and top-drawer upscaled HD visuals make this a worthy CD/DVD player/virtual surround sound system packed into a tiny compact shell. Even if charging 900 sheets seems a smidge excessive. Denon S-302 is tagged with Denon and...

Exceptional value - sound - features - performance


Network audio was the big deal for me, but I like that this thing handles my entire video and audio needs for my main room too. I've taken years to build a massive collection of audiophile and other music and it sounds so nice on this system, It...

This unit sounds wonderful and especially so at lower levels! Love the access to my network's 1000's of lossless tracks (random - plylists), upscaling, simulated surround, excellent video quality overall, logical gui and general ease of use

This could be even better if the remote would operate more remotes and if it had more HDMA in's and outs. Being able to fast forward or pause network/usb audio would be great too. Still exceptional for the

Unsolved Cons prevent me to write Pros

Best d@mn 2.1 system out there - period!


I originally bought the Bose 3-2-1 system and was sorely disappointed. The video was fine; however, the audio was completely subdued. So I promptly returned the Bose and picked up the Denon S-302 and am ever so glad I did. The Bose pales in comparison!...

Great sound! Incredible bass

Inability to tune treble effectively along with the wireless WEP issues noted on several forums are the only two gotchas I have come across so far

Consumer review by:

Great sound for videos and music. Great esthetics.


After purchasing a 46 inch Samsung (120 MHz 650 series) and enjoying the great picture, I knew I had to have more to complete the viewing experience. After researching products and product reviews on the internet (and visiting Best Buy, a Bose outlet...

Excellent sound quality for a 2.1 system. The subwoofer takes up a small footprint, but puts out more than enough bass. The receiver has clean visual lines and has the quality look and feel that you'd expect from Denon

Only minor ones which would not have stopped me from buying: The manual could have been more detailed. Hard to see the display screen from across the room when operating the remote. Backlit buttons on the remote would help when in a darkened room
