Forget about docking stations, loads of cables, computer interfaces, and compatibility issues -- the S-301 provides a new and exciting way to enjoy the most diverse variety of home entertainment. Denon has built this system to provide direct connectivity to your portable players -- such as iPods or Rio MP3 players. Display stored photographs on your television, or pump stored MP3s through Denon's high-quality speakers and subwoofer. With the S-301, it is a breeze to bring portable sound and images to the big screen and big speakers of your home entertainment system.
The S-301 utilizes the most advanced, high-performance audio capabilities, namely the critically-acclaimed Dolby Virtual Speaker technology. This technology simulates a highly realistic 5.1-speaker surround sound listening environment from only two speakers. It also creates a wider two-channel environment during playback of stereo CDs and MP3s, and when combined with Dolby Pro Logic II processing, the S-301 delivers a virtual surround sound listening experience. More than a simple "expanded stereo" performance, this technology incorporates highly advanced algorithms and extensive room-modeling technologies to reproduce the sonic spectrum and dynamics of a properly placed 5.1-speaker system in a room. With two small, powerful speakers and a PC-sized subwoofer, this system comes equipped with all the sound components you need to enjoy the Dolby technology hidden inside. The bottom line is that the Denon S-301 enhances playback of virtually any entertainment source, from stereo music CDs and MP3 files to 5.1-channel DVDs.
With all these great technological features, you might think the S-301 is difficult to use. Luckily, simplicity is at the heart of this system. Merely connect the main unit, the two speakers, and a subwoofer with the included cords to your television, and you'll be ready to enjoy any type of entertainment source available. There are no complicated procedures, and features and functions can be easily accessed via the remote, the front panel controls, or by using the intuitively-designed on-screen interface.
In addition, Denon has developed a vibration control design that dramatically improves disc stability and controls any potential noise that may be generated from DVD vibrations. The progressive-scan DVD player runs smoothly, with a quick load time and very little distraction from unwanted mechanical noise. Toss in the high-quality drive mechanism, and the S-301 creates one of the finest sound and image reproductions available from an all-in-one system. The smart, breakthrough design of the S-301 fuses elegant form and remarkable functionality to deliver three-dimensional sounding and well-balanced acoustics, all of which is rarely available in an integrated home entertainment system.
