The Denon S-32 features a built-in dock
for iPod® for easy drop-in functionality
Denon, an industry leader in home entertainment technology, presents the second generation products in its family of advanced "S-Series" integrated home entertainment systems. The S-series has been accepted with enthusiasm all over the world since its introduction. It has set a standard in a user-friendly home audio system that merged the technology for superior sound quality with a beautiful display. Denon's S-32 networked audio system features the ability to stream music wirelessly from internet radio sources and other network attached storage devices such as PC or Mac computers on the network. The Denon S-32 also features a built-in dock for iPods® for easy drop-in functionality and all the S-series has the ability to decode MP3, WMA, WAV, and AAC formats as well as those encoded in free Lossless Audio codec.
Smart Operation: Total Simplicity of Set-up and Operation
Denon engineers designed these all new S-Series systems from the ground up with the goal of fusing high-quality audio performance with elegance, ease-of-use and advanced connectivity. For simplicity of operation, users can access all features and functions of the systems either via the remote or the multi-task jog wheel on top. The S-32's high contrast graphic LCD screen is simple yet provides enough information for day-to-day activities.
Smart Network: Enjoy Music Anytime, Anywhere – Wirelessly
The WiFi certified Denon S-32 offers the ability to stream music either via Ethernet, or wirelessly, from internet radio sources and other network attached storage devices such as PC or Mac computers on the network.
Smart Sound: Simply Be Impressed By Denon's Power and Quality
The same serious engineering with passion and know-how is put into this wireless network music system to produce the best quality in its class. The Denon S-32's built-in speakers were targeted to have internationally accepted sound reproduction that is excellent for music highs and lows. Its mono-out allows the use of separate subwoofer of one's choice if ever required. Like the other S-series products with Denon's electronics engineering, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, Spatial EQ and Bass-XT turn sound into reality to give powerful bass response and special audio reproduction through its system. The S-32 comes with a clock with two alarms with auto clock set-and-adjust via internet as well as FM/AM radio.

The pros: Internet radio, ability to create favorites lists - so it adds a semblance of organization to the thousands of radio stations that you can end up with! News from around the World, in their original languages. I speak several languages and this is a great way to keep the practice up! Deep rich sound, not over bassy like other systems. I love the high contrast white led display - I can read it from almost any angle (while in bed - perfect!) and you can always dim it if you think is too bright. I also really like the sleep function, I like to read before going to sleep and this function serves as a reminder!
The cons: no Mac support! What up with this???!!! Even though it says: "Plays audio stored on PC or Macintosh computers..." NOT true... I read the instructions, top to bottom and unless I missed something (or I was having too many drinks!) I did not find any mention whatsoever of Mac, anywhere, at all! - that's the 1st star off. The 2nd star off comes because of poor WiFi reception. It comes with a bitty 3db antenna, come on, for the price, they could've thrown in at least a 7db antenna! I have a "Chumby" ([...Read more ›
The manual is not well written.
Seems like some executives told some employees to add all these tech features to the radio but the employees did not understand how the tech worked.
Maybe my expectations were too high, but then the price of this item would tend to make someone have high expectations.
I didn't even get to test the ipod which I have read on here about some big cons.
Here are mine...
Has lots of features
Comes with a remote
Internet radio works
Got on the gold box deal
Sound Quality not even close to my 10 year old altec lansing computer speakers
Display not good
Does not work with Macs unless you buy twonky
Denon's web site states it works with iTunes, but it does not
PC Music through twonky works poorly and it unusable on a mac
Could not get wifi to work only ethernet
Jog wheel a pain to use to enter wifi password
Bass-XT - what bass? and no way to adjust
Spatial EQ - only automatic? no way to adjust.
Poor Interface and menu system
Internet radio does not show bit rate - you can hear that the bit rate is low but would be nice to see it so you can skip that station.
No time shown while playing music.
Some defects. I just expected better from Denon.
It is going back.
AM-FM requires use of included external antennas. FM reception is adequate, but not as good as other FM radios I own; I have not really had much reason to test the AM section. The AM-FM section feels like an afterthought, but may come in handy on occasion.
iPod / iPhone Dock - iPod dock works great with my 6th Gen. Classic, and work but will not charge my iPhone 3G. The major functions I use most often (artist / album / genre, shuffle, playlists) work seamlessly on the Denon.
Internet Streaming - the S-32 gets its list of Internet station from the 3rd party vTuner service through the radiodenon web site. There are an estimated 7000 stations / podcats available, and the radiodenon site allows users to manually add stations missing from the current list or suggest additions to VTuner. I asked vTuner about the availability of a specific ESPN podcast that was missing, and received a response within a day that the podcast would be added to the list. I'm hoping I can figure out a way to add channels like Live365 / Slacker / Pandora that are available on the competing Logitech Squeezebox Boom Wi-Fi Internet Radio, but even without these I cannot complain about the variety of channels available. (Note: the S-32 can currently listen to stations in MP3 and WMA format; Real streams like the BBC feeds are not available.Read more ›
