Occasionally it loses wifi connection which takes fussing to reestabligh. The AirPlay feature is great for playing right off the iphone or ipad or computer but the remote wont control those devices.
At $600 it is expensive and I wish they would add spotify. Now that I have had it several years I have sort of forgotten the $$.
Original unit manufacture date 12/2010 had problems solved when it was replaced with a new unit.
There are multiple stereos/ipod docks in the $150-350 range which will allow you to listen to all the network features of N7 provided you have an ipod/iphone which becomes the network point. I dont have the iDevices so was looking for a product like this.Then you have a mind boggling options of multi room streaming options.I was not ready to buy multi rack audio systems or go through multiple product handshakes to hear simple pure music.
Denon N7 is a breeze to setup and connects to the Pandora through the my wifi router ( i dont use napster or rhapsody). it would be nice if you could Like/Dislike music through this. Next Internet radio ...search all podcasts, radio by country and you might luck out. Connecting to my music folders on my home PC (XP) through windows media player 11 was a lil bit of a hiccup but once i got the firewall disabled it was so now easy to share. Then you have the CD/USB/MP3/AM/FM that all stereos these days have.Last..the looks.The receiver is bigger than i expected but with the excellent finish and simple clean design it looks drop dead gorgeous.
Now the cons...the speakers if you did buy the Denons would pair just OK.i think the looks are a more reason for buying these than performance. dont get me wrong..they are powerful but somehow doesn't have the fidelity i expected of a Denon.I have satellite KEFs for my home theatre setup and this doesn't measure upto those even though the costs are comparable. a few minor cons...searching a network song is not easy..Read more ›
After only 3 months, the menu got stuck and I had to return it.
I got it back about 2 months later and since this time the unit is working fine but it has several bugs and freezes from time to time.
Once I had to reset it completely to make it work again.
The menu is not very friendly and it is quite hard to navigate thru your music folders.
I like the features but the reliability of the product seems weak.
I would suggest to extend the waranty if you want to buy one, or wait for the competition to come up with a similar product...
If your into music variety, or perhaps favor more obscure genres from Pandora or internet radio stations, then as with me this system is definitely well worth it. There are seemingly hundreds of stations and you can listen to exactly the kind of music that you want as soon as you get home and turn it on. On the other hand, if your tastes are somewhat mainstream and you are satisfied with what you hear on the radio, or have purchased through Itunes, then you can get better quality sound from another shelf system and likely find a means of hooking up your Ipod to that one. My former shelf system was an Onkyo and I still use that system's speakers with this new Denon receiver. However, the sound quality with the Denon reciever is not nearly as crisp and deep as the former Onkyo system that I had. It may be a hard choice - variety of music favoring Denon vs quality of music favoring other shelf systems such as Onkyo - but I do like the Denon better. Every time I turn on the stereo I easily browse through an endless varity of music that I enjoy - though I can see others favoring quality of sound if thats most important to them.
The only other problem is that it is computer, which means I have had problems with it freezing. Yet, the telephone tech support is very helpful and has advised me as to how to reset the system so that should not be re-occuring. I have not yet done so, since the freezing problem seems to have subsided since I spoke to them.
