The Denon DNP720AE brings together the best audio from the net and digital devices like few others.
Where the DNP720AE stands out from many of its rivals is with the inclusion of Apple AirPlay compatibility. With AirPlay activated you can send your stored music on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch straight to the hi-fi - no dock or cables required! What's more, you can even use the Apple device in another room, giving you complete freedom of movement for the control of your music. AirPlay also works from PCs, Macs and laptops with the suitable software. Connect the DNP-720AE to your home network hub via either Ethernet or wi-fi and you can enjoy a wide range of further advantages. Accessing Internet radio gives the choice of thousands of radio stations from around the world. Napster and Last.fm are also supported, meaning that you never need buy another CD again! Thanks to DLNA certification, you can also stream music from your PC or NAS (Network Attached Storage) system, allowing the Denon to control and playback your whole library of music. If Internet radio, streaming and AirPlay weren't enough, the DNP720AE completes its comprehensive spec with an Apple supported USB interface and FM/AM radio. With the USB input you can get the very best sound quality from your portable Apple device by using its digital output, rather than an analogue one from a dock. It also accepts other brands of digital media devices. Finally, the FM/AM tuner means that you can still listen to your favourite radio stations in the traditional way.
As you'd expect from top quality audio brand, Denon, the DNP-720AE boasts top quality sound. High quality DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) are matched by typically high quality Denon engineering with short signal paths for the least distortion possible. The DNP720AE also supports FLAC 96kHz/24-bit audio (stereo) for "better than CD" sound quality.
Although the wide range of features may seem daunting, Denon has made their streamer as easy to use as possible. A first time network installation wizard and Plug' n Play compatibility make the Denon a breeze to set up. Controlling it is simple, too, thanks to the supplied remote control or remote app that's available for your Apple device. Despite packing in so much, the DNP-720AE is decidedly svelte-like with a case height of just 74mm.
For a network streamer that's focused on compatibility, performance and ease of use, the DNP-720AE is truly all encompassing.
