The Cocoon delivers a compelling combination of sound quality, connectivity and class-leading features in an artful, inspired chassis design. Offering wireless audio streaming from any mobile device in HiFi quality, the Cocoon is both Airplay and DLNA compatible. An on-board internet radio tuner allows for the storage and playback of three internet radio favorites, even without an iDevice docked. Near instantaneous home network connection is established via NetLink, part of a custom Smartphone application written expressly for the Cocoon products. The Cocoon App also features a music player function for streaming audio directly from the handheld device or from shared folders on the home network. Control of 50,000+ internet radio stations is made possible by a built in tune in internet radio app launcher. Denon sound engineers leverage the power of four, 9-band digital equalizers to precisely balance the low, mid and high frequencies for premium performance at all volume levels. A 100-Watts digital amplifier delivers power for any musical demand: 25-Watts per driver in a bi-amped configuration drive a pair of custom designed loudspeakers operating in left/right isolated compartments. The Cocoon molded enclosure features 3mm thick, clear plastic walls that are painted from the inside lending a deep, jewel-like quality to the product; high gloss black and white finishes are available.

That being said, it performed flawlessly playing airplay(5 plus hours straight no network issues), great sound, I like that the display would show the song that was playing. I gave it 4 stars because the speak itself functioned very well from a play and sound quality, I just had issues using advanced features and could have been shipped a dud.
Icould have been shipped a defective unit and or the firmware upgrade attempt could have made the iphone app un workable. Returned and am going to wait for a lightening connection unit for my iphone 5 and newer apple products.
-preset internet radio although preset 1 did not produce any music
-dock although 30 and not new lightening connector
The system is a sleek black, all in one system with a digital display clock on the retractable docking station. The clock feature is nice as you can have the clock on or off. The system has a docking station for iDevices like an iPad, iPod, or iPhone. The docking station is easy to use, and can be retracted when not in use. (However, the docking station will not work with lightning connections. This was one of the only drawbacks to the system; however, all lightning connection devices can just use the wireless airstream option). I have an iPhone4S and the Cocoon works and sounds great with my iPhone docked. The docking station also acts as a phone charger, which is a fantastic added feature!
I found that the best thing about the Cocoon was that for a relatively compact unit it produced great sound. All my iTunes songs, when played on the Cocoon, sounded strong, clear, and had a great sound quality. The sound is great, and the volume control at the top of the Cocoon unit is easy to use, or you can use the remote. I listen to a wide range of music from classical to my cousin's modern rap songs, and all sound great on the Cocoon.
The system has the capability for wireless airplay, which is another one of the great features of the system. This is where the newer iPad and iPhone devices still work fine even though they can not use the docking station. There is a built in Internet connection, and Internet radio is also available on the system. The back of the unit has Ethernet cable connection options for PCs and laptops, if you do not have the iDevices, so the Cocoon is extremely versatile. I have the unit set up in my home office, but it is so very aesthetically pleasing and compact that it could easily be a great fit in the kitchen, livingroom, or bedroom, too.
The unit is well-priced at $599 for what it can do, and you can use it throughout the house. It makes a great housewarming or wedding gift, as it is useful and eye-appealing to all ages, and most of all it has great sound.
