"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.

Compact with good sound but you have to read the manualBought for CD and DAB in the kitchen. The unit is perfect - compact with good sound. Programming the DAB presets is far from obvious (automatic with FM but we don't use FM). Once the presets are programmed it's great but usually I do not have to refer to the user manual. Mains plug arrived broken but I had a spare.

Difficult to find, easy to listen to!Had to hunt around as my local Richer Sounds didn't have one in silver, but tracked one down in nearby town.
No problem using VIP discount, got it home and it was up and running within minutes replacing an older Denon DVD player with suspect laser

Great little unitBought this to replace my trusty Onkyo which finally packed in after many years service. This unit is brilliant - flooding our kitchen with vibrant clear sound. I'm using it with my existing Q Acoustic speakers

Great valueAn amazing piece of kit at a very reasonable price. It does exactly what I wanted - plays CDs, receives radio broadcasts and lets me listen to Vinyl via my turntable.
A bonus is that it takes up so little room on the shelf.

Good for a quality and small setupI recently bought this with the Dennon DP200USB turntable for a compact set-up for a student room. The radio and CD player both work well, and the USB port allows for phones to be connected and played through a normal charger cable.
The Dennon DP200USB turntable is a cheery option that works well, even if the automated arm takes some getting used to when choosing songs not at the start.
Overall, I am very happy with these purchases
