Denon D-M40DAB review


Product of the Year, Awards 2016. Denon has done it again - the D-M40DAB is a seriously impressive micro system for the money...

Good amount of detail and dynamics ; Nicely balanced sound that packs a punch ; Couldn’t be simpler to use

No wireless capability

It is difficult to be over complimentary about the D-M40 as a micro hi-fi system at this price; Denon has produced something even better than last year’s Award winner.

Good Product

Superb sound quality from multiple inputs


Bought this over the phone a couple of weeks ago from the Bournemouth store as nearer stores had all sold out. Not surprising given the £149 price tag for such a flexible and high quality design, now replaced by the later DM41 version. Basic setting up...
