Customer Reviews

The sound quality is as good as the Bose Radio.
Marco Antonio Abarca
The menus/controls are not intuitive; it takes a while to get the unit configured after power-up and the wifi often has trouble finding the access point.
Xavier Marchand
It did connect to my Windows Media library quickly but no joy because of my format choice.

Overall, I'm satisfied with my Denon S-52. It's very well-built and feels very solid (it weighs over 14 pounds!) with impressive build quality. The WLAN antenna on the back is detachable so you can use a different Wi-Fi antenna if you need extra range.

For just popping in an iPod or CD and playing it, this thing works like a dream. It supports CD-R's burned with files (like .MP3's or .WMA files) and thumb drives work well. It won't span sub-directories for continuous play so you have to dump all your files in the same directory if you want it to play everything continuously. The CD mechanism is among the quietest I've ever heard, and the loading mechanism is _very_ smooth. I've seen high-dollar CD transports that have done worse.

The large clock display is easily readable. Alarms clearly indicate their wakeup time on the display whenever they are enabled. The separate, push-to-latch buttons for each alarm make switching alarms easy and fool-proof.

The device sounds quite good on its own -- Denon clearly spent time and money designing the speaker enclosures to be relatively free of unwanted resonances, and the speakers have adequate high-frequency response. Denon uses Audyssey bass-boosting technology to increase apparent bass which works relatively well but unfortunately is undefeatable should you hook up a subwoofer. Adding a powered subwoofer is easy because of the mono RCA (phono-jack) output on the back but adjusting it is difficult because the Audyssey technology sounds muddy when accompanied by a subwoofer. I would recommend a subwoofer with variable frequency, volume, and phase controls -- switches won't give you the adjustability you need to blend the subwoofer with the radio.

This product exceeded my expectations. Here are details not highlighted in the product info:

A) Sound quality
I compared it with a friend to his Bose Wave system. We both prefered Denon, which had richer bass and fuller range. Both systems created an impressive stereophonic spread throughout the room if placed in the right position. Denon also compared favorably to Tivoli Radio (but Tivoli is mono). You can add an external subwoofer to this Denon (the external speaker port is for "mono" only so it is only practical for a subwoofer).

B) Music Input
This is its strongest feature. The Denon is more versatile than other shelf-systems (Bose, Polk i-Sonic, Tivoli, Boston Acoustics, Cambridge Soundworks) and even outperforms the expensive Sonos (it does what Sonos does and more... you could spend thousands putting a Sonos port with expensive speakers in each room, or just buy the Denon and move it from room to room - it's portable!).

It will switch between input-sources seamlessly with the push of a button. For toggling to your favorite track or folder, Denon has a highly readable screen which displays 3-lines (e.g. 3 folders, 3 track names). The blue screen has 3-dim levels and can be read from across a small room (because it enlarges the selected text). Toggling this menu is easy either through a button on the remote or a faster dial on the machine. Here's what it can play:

1) Ipod through a dock (better sound quality than an aux line)
2) Other digital media through front-loaded USB port (this works just like the ipod dock, optimizing sound quality and allowing you to control the folders/song titles through Denon's screen. I plugged my Creative Zen in and it instantly recognized all the folders/tracks.

If you are reading about this product you are likely shopping for a nice table top radio. I don't usually write reviews but I this time I want to share a few comments about this product. I'll try to be as objective as possible in hopes that my comments will help someone make an informed decision.
I have owned a Denon S-52 for more than a year and I'm very happy with it. After reading many negative comments about this unit from users here in Amazon and other places, I see that most of the complaints follow a pattern. I will go over these points in the order that I see people are complaining, and I will add my own comments.
...but before I want to say that I don't accept the notion that there's anything that you can buy that is going to be 100% what you want nor there's any gadget perfect for everyone. My approach towards any device that own is that if I'm 80% happy with it, that's as perfect as it can get for me, so my advice is don't expect anything perfect for you because you will not find it, unless you design it yourself, maybe?

1. PRICE: Yes it was very steep. When it first came out the price tag was $699 + tax, but now you can get one for about $500 from most retailers, which is the same price of a comparable radio but you'll get much more with the S-52.

2. DIFFICULT TO SET UP/HARD TO USE: Yes and no, if you are not at all a techie person you might need someone who understands basic networking to help you set it up the first time, but after that I don't see any difficulties using this unit. Most if not all of the functions can be accessed without a remote control. I agree that the initial Wi-Fi set up could be more user friendly for the non-techie person, but not a big deal.
