To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This Denon amplifier is pretty good for the money; rated at 45w per channel at 8ohms and 70w per channel for 4ohms it is very unusual to get a four ohms rated integrated amp at this price, it has a phono moving magnet input, preamplifier outputs, sub-woofer output, three RCA lines level input, tape loop, a DAC with one coaxial input and two optical inputs, bass and treble controls, Bluetooth and a 6.3mm headphone jack that sounds fantastic.
This Denon feels solid and is cool looking; I connected it to my vintage speakers, Pioneer 3 way CS5070 and I played Fly me to the moon by Diana Krall at a low volume and the sound was warm, smooth and relaxing, then I pumped up the volume halfway, and the sound became holographic, coherent and huge. For a change of pace, I played a few of my favorites songs from Dire Straits, Money for Nothing, Calling Elvis and Sultans of Swings once again when I open the taps I got a sound that was fully communicating and full of energy. The best thing is that I only paid £378 here at Amazon. It is nice to have an amplifier with these great features that sounds smooth and relaxing at low volumes, and when you crank it up, it gives you a live stage performance.
I bought this CD player to replace an old Technics one which died after many years of use. I am very impressed with the sound quality and sturdy build, plus its exactly the same size as my existing Technics stack system. However, it has one massive flaw....... It won't play my CD-Rs, despite the manufacturers claim that it does. CD-Rs which played perfectly on my old Technics CD player. I googled this issue and found a post by Denon customer support which comes up with numerous explanations as to why it won't play certain CD-Rs, and which suggests to me that they clearly don't expect it to play ALL CD-Rs. This is most disappointing, and in my opinion misleading. Update. It was only 2CD-Rs out of 8 which wouldn't play. I re-burned them on new discs and all is well.
I purchased this to replace a faulty 720 whose drive had failed . It has mostly the same tech inside and sounds as good as the 720. I have Denon amp so the remote controls both otherwise the remote is big just for the CD player. Good product for the price . Recommend
Positiv: Optisch passt er zu meinem alten Denon Verstärker, Klangqualität ist auch prima.
Das Problem: Hat man noch funktionale weitere Geräte, und aus der Sammlung fällt eines raus (hier der alte CD Spieler), kauft man natürlich wieder denselben Hersteller.
Negativ: 1) Die Fernbedienung taugt jetzt nur zum Play/Pause/Stop, >>, <<. Alles weitere wird von meinem alten Verstärker nicht unterstützt. Keine direkte Lautstärke-Regelung wie bereits in meinem alten CD Spieler verbaut. 2) MP3-CDs werden gespielt, aber: a) Das Trackeinlesen von Lied zu Lied dauert 5 Sekunden. b) Keine Tracknummer wie bei Audio-CDs. Das Problem daran: Schalte ich den CD Spieler abends ab, habe ich keine Ahnung bei welchem Track ich am nächsten Tag wieder einsteigen müsste.
