What Hi-Fi product of the year 2012, also available in black. The base unit's regular price is £189, with speakers around £350(ish) - so you can save yourself around £100 with this.

This excellent Superfi sizzling hifi system consists of the Denon DM39 Micro System and the award winning Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers. Terrific sound and a stylish design make this a fantastic value package.

1 x DENON DM39DAB CD/DAB/DAB+/FM/USB MICRO SYSTEM

The Denon DM39DAB is a superb micro hifi system which builds on its multi award-winning forebears, the DM38 and DM37. With an extensive internal rework to allow a more direct signal flow, an upgraded power supply and a new, better stabilised CD mechanism designed to further reduce vibration, the latest incarnation of this reference micro system delivers in spades - a hugely enjoyable sound from a variety of sources and all packed in to a compact, unobtrusive yet attractive unit. The addition of an optical input means you can now connect digital sources such as TVs to it as well.

The DM39 crams in an awful lot of features including a CD player with support for CD-R/-RW discs, DAB, DAB+, FM (with RDS) tuners with auto tuning and 100 presets, and a 2 x 30 watt amplifier. It will also play MP3 & WMA files from CD or via its front panel USB socket - to which you can connect compatible memory sticks or portable hard drives. Connect your iPod, iPad or iPhone by USB and the music is transferred digitally, to be handled by the DM39's superior digital-analogue converter for an even richer, smoother sound. The DM39 will charge your iOS device even when the system is in standby.

Round the back there are a host of inputs, including an optical digital audio input allowing you to connect TVs, set-top boxes, blu-ray/DVD players, game consoles, network streamers or any other device with an optical output and have their audio delivered by the DM39. For analogue devices there's an analogue stereo input. Plus, if you want to add more bass there's a subwoofer output too.

The quality binding post speaker terminals allow for a better, cleaner connection of your speakers than the spring clip connections usually found in micro systems.

From a series of systems that have become the de facto standard in micro hifi and with numerous sound enhancing improvements, the Denon DM39 DAB is a top-notch micro system that doesn't disappoint and is ready for use with your own choice of speakers.


1 x WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.1 SPEAKERS (PAIR)

The multi-Award-Winning Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers are a real classic in the world of bookshelf speakers. Called "one of the best budget loudspeakers ever" on WhatHifi.com, they "make a mockery of their £180 price tag", offering a "wonderful, balanced sound". Now available for less than £100, the 9.1 represents amazing value for money.

Available in stylish walnut or black wood finish, the build quality on these good-looking speakers is fault-less, too. The curved cabinets, usually only found on much more expensive speakers, help eliminate vibrations and dissipate standing waves. This ensures no loss of performance, superior bass and a more focussed image. The 9.1 speakers can also be bi-wired, separating the signal paths to the high and low frequencies and so offering a cleaner, more precise sound.

With a strong, tight bass and huge amounts of top-end detail, the Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 bookshelf speakers will give you hours of listening pleasure. They'll satisfy the expectations of one who seeks a far more expensive speaker. Brilliant value.

Just to bare in mind neither that set up or the one pictured in the deal is for that price mentioned. When you choose the system in black then the price goes up to £285.00 for both speaker colour combinations. You would only get this deal at this price choosing the system to be in silver not black. Quite misleading the pictures used in this deal.

I apologise, it was not my intention to mislead anyone. The picture above shows the awards/features and the picture for the link is from the deal page; also I didn't realise the price changes for the all black selection.

great system, great deal. hot

Great deal, wish I had the spare cash for it

cold......no Flac support and no gapless mp3

its 259 for silver denon only, pics posted are 10.1 not the 9.1, the diamond 9.1 are quite an old model, 2005 I think, that's not necessarily bad, quite a good deal.

Sounds like a good deal, thanks!!!!

What's with the what-hifi picture? The speakers are different to the ones in the deal.

Is it definitely 9.1 and not 10.1? The pictures obviously suggest otherwise.

Is there more information on the micro system anywhere? Like number of inputs and outputs?

Edit: Nevermind, found the information for inputs/outputs. Not quite what I thought it was, I need to put my TV and laptop/mp3 through. Doesn't seem to be anywhere to do it.

Anyone placing any weight in what hi fi reviews is either naive, stupid, or as corrupt as the magazine.

Cheers. Only issue really there is that I can't use the USB for mp3 since I would be playing them from my phone/laptop. 2 AUX ports would have had me sorted

In my opinion you are right. I used to love what hifi but i always take their reviews with a pinch of salt now. Too much bias on products that are big spenders on advertising (In my opinion).
Having said that this denon range is superb. highly recommended!

Anyone buying HI-FI on the basis of a magazine review is, as you correctly say naive, kit should always be trialed first and user opinion can then be formed. I still have a subscription to What Hi-Fi as I find it informative about new products to the market.

I've had an incarnation of this Denon unit and it was excellent before I spilled a large mug of tea on top of it. It was good value for a small system. No doubt it will be even better with these speakers.

Having said that, don't forget hi-fi magazine reviews must be taken with a large pinch of salt. They also review stupidly expensive USB cables and comment on the way they improve sound.

I've got this unit with some mx1 speakers (personal choice) as I found them more punchy then either diamonds but this is a great deal. I bought as you won't find many decent quality hifi with optical in. I link mine to Apple tv via optical so can use airplay without tv being on. I then use a digital to analog converter to link small tv (Amazon for about ten quid) where sound quality less of an issue...also as you can link iPod via usb port you could theoretically use an iPod dock and a cheap Bluetooth iPod adapter from eBay and then stream anything from any device to it...I do this on my Sony amp and sound quality is surprisingly good! would defo recommend this system and though seen this deal a while back it's a great set up and combination for price so heat added!

Whilst ideal some of us don't have the opportunity to trial stuff first so reading a few reviews is the best you can do. But the internet covers anything a magazine can do..

I think What Hifi is extremely biased, quite a few selected manufacturers that they are very cosy with, its big business having a what hifi recommended product, people lap that nonsense up, you scratch my back I'll scratch yours.

Take it from me, a hi-fi review survivor.That music that you love,will make you happy on a really cheap hi-fi, And tunes that you don't like won't magically become good on an expensive system.

And music that you happy on the cheap hi-fi will give you an orgasm on a great hi-fi.

I do follow your profound sentiment though. Well put

But that's totally missing the point, surely?

Compare it to say....food. Eating a top restaurant isn't going to make you like foods that you hate. But if you like steak, you'll enjoy it more in a top restaurant than you would in a Whetherspoon's.

Slightly laboured, but the point is that a good hifi will make you appreciate something you like even more.

Use the drop bars at the side to choose your base colour and also speakers which come in either black or walnut finish.

The speakers are great. I have a pair. However, I paid £60 for the pair, used, in excellent condition, with the benefit that they've already been broken in. I can't see how this offer is good value?

Yes 9.1 and also yes click the link for the deal then look in description. Also on the subject of description if you had just read the above for this deal posted you would have noticed it says 21 x WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.1 SPEAKERS (PAIR)

just to back up which speakers this deal was for.

True think its ok to repost a deal tho if it's been either 3 weeks or a month since last posted tho. Not sure which. (_;) But yes i remember that post.

But if you look, the picture shows 10.1 speakers, but you'll be getting the older 9.1 speakers.

Yes true i was going to update this on my first comment relating to that picture. I did say they were misleading but should have added that this was in more ways than one. Both colour and in the choice of speakers used in their picture. In all fairness tho in both the deal description and the description used on their site for the item they do list the correct speakers. The first picture posted in this deal showing the 10.1 speakers wasn't even used on their website as a picture showing their deal i guess which makes it worse and pushes my point further on it being misleading.

It's £289 if you want black, and silver is ugly imo!

Ah someone who agrees with me. lol Last post for this deal people were saying the silver looked better and i thought i was the only one who didn't agree.

excellent little system, nice and compact, and packs a punch both in terms of sound quality and volume, for the price. had mine for a year or so and I love it.

I too have this hifi with the recommended speakers by Denon, and extremely happy. However if you think the aux input on the rear of the unit is for an mp3 player, then expect to be disapointed as they are not due to voltage input differences. Other than that it is excellent. HTH

Cant comment on the system, but I have these speakers in black, and they really are brilliant for the price

I like music from most genres. So as an all rounder would this system be the best bang for buck?

My Dad has this setup at home, and it sounds incredible. For reference mine cost 3-4 times as much, and for small rooms where you can't lay out rear ported speakers properly, these blow them out of the water.

So are the connections on this as good as the newer micro systems? Can't see the USB port on it?

Not bothered about flac files and gapless playback personally.
