Denon DNP-720AE review

 

A bargain for features, but spend a bit more and you'll get better sound

Affordable ; fluid, weighty sound ; great features, including Last.fm, Napster and AirPlay

Clearly lacks the detail, dynamics and timing of top rivals

A bargain for features, but those who spend a bit more will get better sound

Be sure to shop around carefully, though, as the lower end of the networked audio market is becoming ridiculously (in the literal sense of the word) competitive.

Denon, DNP 720AE - £300

 

Denon has entered the network audio player market with an inexpensive, iPod-friendly player. Malcolm Steward streams his tunes

The elegant simplicity of the unit is appealing

Performance should be more consistent and predictable
