If you like the look of Denon’s network media streamers but don’t have an existing HiFi setup to connect one to, then take a look at what else the company has announced at CEDIA 2007 today. Added to the S-Series – Denon’s range of compact, all-in-one systems – the S-52 and S-32 have wireless connectivity to your home network to stream audio either from a computer, NAS or internet radio.
Both also have a built-in iPod dock for playback from the PMP as well as recharging it, and there’s a scroll-wheel on the devices themselves to make navigation of radio stations or tracklists quick and easy. MP3, WAV, WMV, AAC and FLAC formats are supported, as well as tracks from the subscription-based Rhapsody service.
The S-52 adds a slot-load CD player, HD radio tuner with multicasting ability, a USB host port for connecting thumb drives or external hard-drives so as to play their content, and is satellite radio ready via subscription-based hardware.
The S-52 and S-32 will ship in October 2007 for $699 and $499 respectively.
