Just like its predecessors, the Denon DM38 looks set to lead its class for quite some time.
The key to the success of Denon mini systems has always been the balance of fine sound quality with compact good looks. No change there for the DM38. UK tuned for the best sound quality, the DM38 features a "simple & straight" circuit for the least distortion possible. Triple noise reduction design with short signal paths, digital and analogue separation and precision earthing ensure that the Denon DM38 offers the purity of sound you'd expect from Denon. The high quality power supply ensures a good, dynamic response with excellent bass control.
Although already well equipped, the DM38 features a range of new features. Thanks to a front mounted USB socket, you can now connect up your iPod or iPhone and enjoy top quality, digital music transfer without the need for a separate dock. If you'd prefer, there's always the option of the front-mounted mini jack or rear phono sockets to connect up your portable player. Another handy new feature is the DAB+ tuner. Complimenting the existing DAB/AM and FM tuners, DAB+ offers future-proof radio. Both the timer and remote control have also been made easier to use.
It may be small, but when it comes to connections, the Denon DM38 has everything you need. In addition to the USB and mini jack sockets on the front, there are also 2 phono inputs and one output on the back - enough for a recorder and iPod dock. There's also a very useful subwoofer output for an active bass unit.
Denon set the standard for stylish mini systems back in the 1990s, and the DM38 shows they've still got it. The simple control layout and smooth feel to the controls could only come from Denon. For a better class of mini hi-fi system you need look no further than the Denon DM38.
