Denon DSD500 Cocoon Wireless Network Speaker Dock for iPod/iPhone/iPad

Stream music wirelessly and enjoy crisp, clear sound with the Cocoon Home iPod Dock. The Cocoon connects to your home's Wi-Fi network automatically, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from any Apple, Android, or Windows mobile device or your iTunes library. Features include a retractable docking tray, an ergonomic remote control, touch-sensitive controls, and a sleek three-dimensional design.

Digital EQ and two-way speakers for premium sound

The Cocoon's two-way speakers are acoustically optimised to ensure premium, high-fidelity sound. Double-layer woofers, two bass ports, and four 25-watt amplifiers create rich bass without distortion, while a nine-band digital equaliser precisely balances low, mid, and high frequencies for powerful performance at any volume.

Stream music wirelessly from any mobile device

Using AirPlay and DLNA technologies, the Cocoon lets you stream music wirelessly from your iTunes library or mobile device – Apple, Android, or Windows – using your home Wi-Fi network. You can also listen to internet radio stations and save your favourites with three on-board presets.

Retractable dock for iPod, iPhone, or iPad

The Cocoon automatically charges your iPod, iPhone, or iPad while it's docked, and the docking tray retracts when not in use for a streamlined look. The music dock's OLED display clearly indicates source, music information, volume level, or time. This display includes adjustable brightness.

Three-dimensional design with matching remote

The Cocoon features a sleek, rounded shape and mirror-finished enclosure that complement any room. Its touch-sensitive controls are backlit, so they effectively disappear when the speaker is off. The included matching remote control is ergonomically designed for comfortable handling.

Cocoon app provides great functionality and flexibility

Download the Cocoon app for incredible functionality and control. The free app includes NetLink, a Denon innovation that allows you to wirelessly connect the Cocoon to your Wi-Fi network in seconds. Other features include access to more than 70,000 free internet radio stations via TuneIn, plus a media player that indexes digital audio shares from connected computers and NAS drives. You can even stream and play 24/96 FLAC files with your Cocoon.

Auxiliary input and USB port to connect multiple devices

The Cocoon's solid aluminum base houses a USB port and 3.5 mm auxiliary input so you can connect and play music from other audio sources such as a portable CD player, MP3 player, or USB thumb drive. A WPS button, another option for fast Wi-Fi setup, and an Ethernet port are also built into the base.

I did the usual trawling the internet to find a dock that would both meet my budgetary requirements and also sound expectations. I've got the B&W Zeppelin which we use in another room and wanted another docking station which was Wifi and Bluetooth for our kitchen.

I paid a little extra to get it on 48 delivery and the seller got it to me as promised on time , even when I had an enquiry the seller responded really quickly and clarified my question. great service from the seller and I would definitely reccomend buying from this seller. Obviously customer service is important to the unlike lots of other businesses .

Back to the unit. , the set up using iPod/iphone wasn't as simple and I ended up plugging in a network cable for set up. Once done its really easy to use and the internet radio is fab! the overall sound is rich and can be quite heavy on the base however I dont mind it like that. I really like the air dampened retractable docking port, nice touch .

If your looking for a great sounding and easy to use functionality with airplay and the ability to dock then this the one at a great price

I bought this after a friend of mine had persuaded me into it over some of the other options on the market. He has a Denon HiFi at home and told me how good the sound and build quality is. He was not wrong - I have been very impressed with the sound quality and clarity - it really does bring my room to life. I have to admit I did not set it up - he did - but it did not seem to take long and he said it was relatively simple. The Cocoon itself is a good size and has a beautiful shiny body which makes it look much more expensive than it is. There are three touch sensitive buttons on the top that are hidden from sight and light up when in use which is helpful. It comes with a small shiny remote which is very simple but effective. I bought this to mainly play my iTunes music from my laptop wirelessly but have been delighted to find it also has a very good internet radio facility. Another fun feature is that when I have people over they have all been able to connect to it and play their music from their phones - very handy when I am having dinner parties and my guests don't like my music!

Colour Name: White Verified Purchase
Got the Denon Cocoon Home (DSD-500) in white and it looks great. Bought it for GPB169 via Amazon from Music Matters HiFi. That is a very good deal for a great sounding speaker. I also own the Pioneer XW-SMA3 which has similar features but does not sound as good. But it is also very good value for money as it can be had for cheap.

There is a newer version of the Denon Cocoon (DSD-501) which looks exactly the same. Before buying the older DSD-500 model I compared the specs of both and the only difference I could find was that the newer model did not have the 30-pin apple dock drawer. Apart from that they seem to be the same speaker, although I cannot attest to the sound quality as I have not listened to the new model. On this basis I decided to get the reduced-price older model which additionally allows me to dock my 30-pin ipods.

Connecting the speaker via WiFi was straight forward; The quick setup guide was easy to follow.
The Cocoon app is user friendly and works well. Would have liked an equaliser with memorisable sound profiles.
I have streamed music via Airplay and DLNA to the Cocoon and it worked very well. The internet radio function also works without glitch and sounds quite good even streaming at 128kbps.

Cons:-
- The alarm clock seems to require that the Cocoon app be running. I set the alarm one night and then closed the app. The Cocoon did not wake up at the set time the next day. It's probable that the alarm settings are memorised on the Cocoon app and not on the Cocoon speaker itself. However the sleep function works even when the app is closed.
- The remote is very basic. Would have liked to be able to control the sleep and alarm snooze functions with it.
- Although the speaker sounds great I was expecting stronger bass for its size.

Highly recommended especially at the current discounted price.

This reasonably priced Airplay device fills a room with crisp, clear sound. The Airplay feature works wonderfully well from my iPhone, using iTunes, Cocoon and Spotify as necessary. It has met my expectations in this respect and I am very pleased with it. I hope it will last for a number of years.

I was cautious about buying it as the dock, though useful, is for iPhones up to 4s. I have an iPhone 4 and, even though I have no plans to upgrade yet, I purchased a lightning adaptor for the inevitable day when I need to move on from it to the iPhone 5 or so. It fits well but I have not had chance to use my friend's iPhone 5 in it yet to double check any potential connection issues.

There is already a newer model of this item, but I surmised that, for me, it would be 'false economy' to buy that model. The main difference as I could see it was that the dock had been removed and the remote control had been pleasingly aesthetically redesigned. However, as I am still using an iPhone 4 and this model is slightly cheaper, there was not a significant enough difference between the two to go into a 'dock-less' future.

The internet radio is clear and easy to utilise on the free Cocoon app. The Cocoon app in itself more than meets its purpose without being spectacular - not that it needs to be as it supports a superb product!

Setting up was trickier than I was led to believe, but on the third attempt the connection fired into life and I have had no problems since then with the Airplay.

Well done to Denon for designing such a well thought out, accessible speaker system, and also to the seller, who was prompt in dispatch.
