"Denon has done it again - the D-M40DAB is a seriously impressive micro system for the money."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016
The small system that's big on sound quality It might be small but the Denon DM40 DAB still puts sound quality first. "Simple & Straight" circuit design minimizes distortion from the input selector, electronic volume control and power amp for sound purity and very low levels of distortion. Working alongside this, Triple Noise Reduction Design (TNRD) works to preserve the signal quality for the most accurate, life-like sound. Make no mistake, the Denon D-M40DAB is still one of the best-sounding systems in its class.
USB to get the most from your Apple iPhone or iPod The front-mounted USB socket is ideal for connecting up your Apple iPod or iPhone and playing back music. Not only is this fully compatible with playback, it also charges your iPod or iPhone, even when in standby - making a charging dock unnecessary.
Flexible connectivity; now includes two digital inputs Although a brilliant system in its own right, the DM40DAB reaches out to your other sources, too. If you've got a TV, games console or TV set-top box, you can now plug them in using the two standard optical inputs. An analogue AUX input is also included for older sources.
Pump up the bass with an optional subwoofer By fitting a subwoofer output, Denon gives you a wider choice of speaker options. Instead of medium-sized or floorstanding speakers you can use an active subwoofer with small satellite speakers - the choice is now yours.
DAB radio The Denon DM40 DAB comes with an impressive sounding tuner radio that's comprehensively equipped. Featuring DAB+, DAB and FM (RDS), the tuner has many radio eventualities covered both for the present and, because of DAB+, for the future, too.
The perfect balance of sound and convenience, the Denon DM40 DAB still sets the standard.

Denon RCD-M40DABI been wanting the Denon for a while to replace an old Sony unit. Setting up was a breeze, easy and intuitive. But the sound quality when married to a decent pair of speakers is amazing for such a compact unit. And at the Richer Sounds current price a steal. You will find it hard to find it at a better price anywhere else.

Denon DM40 - Good ValueBought this to replace my 25 year old Denon amp. Was looking for a quality basic amp that would allow me to listen to cd, MP3, vinyl and tapes. The built in cd player and DAB/FM are a bonus. Preferred this model with the USB port rather than the newer one with Bluetooth, as I have a lot of memory sticks.

Big Sound from Small footprintPerfect addition to my office running with an old set of Bose Accoustimas speakers.
Commpact unit with very clear and polished sound. Good selection of inputs including option to plug in TV and iPhone/iPod via USB and even charges iPod as well !
The DAB setup was easy and with the included aerial works well, it would probably work even better with an external aerial. CD has a good sound and deep bass capabilities.
Remote is good and is needed to discover all the options avaiable.
Only missing input is the Bluetooth option but that is available on some of the latest versions of this unit with a higher pricetag.

Ultimate in hassle-free helpCould be happier with either the product or the customer service.
My last Denon toiled for 20 years before stuttering to its end - delighted to find a contemporary model with all the features I wanted plus a USB port, even moreso at the depth and clarity of the sound output.
The staff were very helpful, understood what I wanted right off and pointed me directly at it - even down to coating the box in plastic wrap as it was coming down in stair-rods outside.
Would rcommend both the store and product to anybody.

Great sound, great priceA super micro-system with all the features I was looking for. Many thanks to Nick at Richer Sounds for his very prompt email response as to whether I could use my vintage Tannoy M15 speakers with it: they sound brilliant.
Full marks all round!

'Small and perfectly formed…..'This unit was purchased to replace an elderly Sony FM tuner/CD/MD and cassette(!) player in the kitchen; FM reception was increasingly plagued with distortion, and the CD had - despite repairs - ceased to function. Thanks to the DM40 this house is now totally digital. With the Q Acoustics Q20101 G speakers bought at the same time, we once again have access whilst cooking and eating to CDs, and The Archers in ultra-realistic Moo-sound…..
Only the flimsy and ugly aerial supplied with the Denon was a let-down. When I recently bought a Denon TU1800 DAB tuner it came with an elegant black 'wand' aerial, which gives excellent reception up in my third floor den; why on earth did Denon lower standards for the DM40. I am trying a mini telescopic wand from Maplins, but am not convinced it is really doing the job.
