The century-old recording pioneer adds to its M-series of music systems.
The D-M39DAB, upgraded from its predecessors, incorporates a DAB/DAB+ tuner and features an optical digital input to connect with digital media, such as Apple AirPort express, TVs, or set-top boxes. A front-facing USB terminal allows for easy connection with Apple devices or any USB sound device.
The new model promises high quality sound via uncomplicated ‘simple and straight’ circuitry and a 30W x2 high power output. Concerned to minimise unnecessary energy consumption, Denon’s engineers claim to have significantly reduced the standby power and have also added an Auto Power Off function for additional energy savings.
With a compact footprint, just 21cm wide and 31cm deep, it’s designed for easy deployment on a bookshelf, kitchen worktop, or in the study, office or bedroom, and is controlled from a newly developed remote handset.
Available in the UK from late August, the RCD-M39 CD receiver unit will be sold on its own for £250 in silver or black, or with matching two-way SC-M39 speakers (in black only) for £360.
