"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 for 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 DM40 DAB is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 165.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product Setting up the DAB radio was not easy, and it was more by luck I was able to finally get the d a b stations set up. Reading the manual nor auto scanning ( which said no d a b service available) were much help. However, now all set up the sound quality is great on all modes,disc, radio and USB input.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives Up To Its Reputation Crisp, clear, clean tones. You can hear ever word. Utilizing Super Dynamic Base for those club beats or switch it off for classical tones. You have to keep pressing the SDB button for treble, (×3) and balance, (×4) and source direct,(×5) - as it does not say this in the manual! Excellent LX-2 speakers that don't vibrate, unlike my previous ones, no matter how loud ( well, not too loud!) and recommended Silver Anniversary speaker cable, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Superb replacement for my huge prehistoric AKAI system, and MUCH better sound quality - and that's still using my old speakers (JANO). Has a nice quality feel about the controls and reassuringly heavy for such a small unit.
Date published: 2017-05-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mmm - Denon! This is a very smart piece of kit and replaces a former TEAC unit. Silver metallic appearance looks good quality and the sound system lives up to expectations. Easy to set up once you re-read the manual and realise you set the unit up using the remote control! I like to nominate the pre-set stations to my own numbering and this proved easy to do. I was able to link to existing Mission Speakers which allow the unit to play to its full potential. Excellent service from the Richer Sounds staff at Southampton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthy successor to its 13 yr old predecessor the UD-M31 After 13 yrs daily use the CD section of the Denon UD-m31 (purchased from Richer Sounds) started playing up so I decided to replace it. The DM40 is packed with extras, the DAB being the most useful as far as I am concerned. I cannot believe they can have fitted all these into an almost identical size and shaped cabinet with almost identical layout of front panel. Superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp, great price, great serviceP This is the 3rd of these I've bought over the years. Paired with some wharfedale 9s. For a bedroom this time. Easy setup, got some nice chunky cable and popped on some jazz. All I can say is the 5* reviews are justified. The sound is precise and eerily spacious. Truly 3D and immersive. I always recoil at the verbose magazine review language that's used too often these days but in this case it's absolutely spot on. I am astonished at how good it sounds. RS Southampton were particularly decent in helping me find the right deal.
