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.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by useful separate Bought this to replace my (soon to be redundant) FM/AM tuner. Decided to skip the DAB generation and go straight to internet radio. -FM/AM still an option with this unit. Initial setup was a bit complicated, having gone the wireless route. On powering up, one is sent into a menu system that is a bit confusing and didn't seem to match the quick setup guides. After a few minutes wait (as the tuner did it's stuff) the unit booted up and all was well with the world. Now running sweetly with both FM and internet radio sounding fine. Felt happier with the setup process once it was working! There are plenty of options as to how you may want to deploy this piece of kit, best to view it as a tuner replacement, old style hi-fi separate, with a connectivity twist. Used wirelessly with Apple Airport Express and old style co-ax aerial. Suggest researching the compatibility of your network before investing in this tuner. Recommend the download of informative pdf manual to be sure. 19 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It gives me what I want I wanted to connect to Internet radio, to be able to play music and listen to other things from my Mac using a wireless connection to my network. It does just that. The only problem that I have had was initially making the wireless connection in the first place. 13 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good DAB buster I bought this because André in Brighton recommended it over a DAB tuner costing £100 more. The FM bit sold me and the knowledge that internet BBC is usually better quality than DAB BBC. This turns out to be oh so true. So I have managed to miss out the DAB generation in my hi-fi system. (We do have DAB elsewhere, but not for serious listening.) The access to the many thousands of internet radio stations (27403 at last count) is great, although the VTuner web page is pretty clunky, and prone to falling over. It is also impossible to rearrange stations. Navigating these stations on the tuner is not that intuitive. Maybe I will get the hang of it. Switching between FM and internet can be a shock, thanks to the louder output of the Internet tuner. Your Internet connection is obviously important. Mine has been dreadful of late ? BT is on the case ? which is why the FM is essential. All in all, good value for money as an alternative to the limited range of DAB separates available. 25 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice unit let down by poor software support This would be so much better with a bit more software development on the firmware and more particularly, to make an android app which actually works. There is no viable AirPlay or remote app for droid. Reading from USB is fussy, difficult and often slow to navigate, especially on large mixed volumes. The Online Music function is useless to most users as Napster no longer exists and Last FM requires a paid subscription on a hardware device. I'd like to see a better display. It's not too much to ask in this day and age to have a colour display showing time remaining and artwork. 17 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple but potent Tuner/Internet radio/Network music hub Was sceptical whether to go for this tuner by comments from previous reviews, tempted to pay more for a more sophisticated NAS/internet radio unit. this would have left me short of the FM function I originally sought after. The customer service Gent informed me I had a 14 Day return option, so I went for this with my fingers crossed. I am not disappointed! Out of the box it was straight forward to set up, I was jumping pages of the manual through my own impatience not because of any complications. It recognises my NAS and laptop but have yet to stream - I believe I have network issues which I need to resolve! iTunes Airplay worked a treat - as quick as it takes to click the right tabs. I am currently streaming from my library and several tracks have made me smile at the clarity and warmth of the sound. Literally just function tested the iPod connectivity - straight in there like a whippet, use either the remote or the iPod wheel but it only uses the iPod screen for visual reference. 02 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by To redress the balance This network streamer has had a firmware update in May this year that adds gapless audio support as well as the ability to fast forward and rewind via both USB and network streaming. Reviews suggest that the sound quality is not quite up there with the likes of the Cambridge Audio or Marantz, however I find it nearly up there with the sound quality of my NAD C565 CD Player, and obviously far more convenient to be classed as a replacement, at least as far as convenience and instant accessibility is concerned. It does exactly what I need it to at half the price of the competition whilst still being musically competent, a veritable bargain! Excellent sound, excellent value at Richer Sounds price 5/5 all round from me. 22 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great sound, great build, poor software Typical Denon, for the money it's untouchable. Deep rich full presentation. Clean highs and fruity lows, it's a lovely rich sound. However - Wifi signal is easily dropped unless your router is very close. The menu setup is slow and a pain to navigate and you might as well forget the iPad app, it's awful (but free) 30 June 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good budget option to start streaming This technology might have been around for a while, but is probably still considered still emerging from a hi-fi perspective. At sub £200 this unit offers a great value introduction to streaming from your ipad or network server. Offers acceptable fidelity, particularly if hard wired from your router, and whilst the sound is a little thinner, the Apple Airplay functionality is great whilst still returning acceptably decent sound quality. So, yes it might not be quite as good as the Marantz or Cambridge offerings, but hey, it is £190. The connectivity is a bit flakey now and again, but that is my network problems, not a fault with the Denon. However, the Denon app is useless, the third party apps are even worse. Shame as access from the server is compromised due to this useless app. Thankfully the Apple Airplay works just fine. 07 June 2013
