I have just purchased one of these, having got through several other makes before and been disappointed with every one. Setup was extremely easy finding my network and NAS drive immediately. The first thing it does, is to update the firmware which allows access to spotify as well as last.fm both of which I use. It also allows easy access to internet radio and has an IPOD/IPHONE connector on top which works with my Iphone 4S without problem.
The sound is terrific and much louder than the other units I have tried, although the output wattage is similar.
Perhaps the only minor problem is that it has only one audio input connection but rather unusually it does have an optical input. The other minor gripe is that to scroll through my NAS drive it always seems to start at A and then requires going through every artist in alphabetical order without being able to jump (I haven't read the manual yet) but this is no worse than other devices
Anyway Im so impressed, I'm thinking of buying another for my office

The setup was fast and easy. First with an internet cable connection for making the firmware update faster (10 min). Then the wifi setup was made using the WPS button in the router and then in the Denon. Very easy and fast. If you do not have WPS in the router, you can always enter the wifi password using the Denon remote.
I have tested the Denon first with Monitor Audio Radius 90 (small bookshelf speakers) and the sound was ok, but nothing special. Then I tested it with large bookshelf speakers from Sony and the sound improved much. Then with floorstanding KEF Q50 and the sound was just amazing. Finally, I linked the Denon with the also floorstanding Monitor Audio 5i and the sound was even better than with KEF. Conclusion: I kept the Denon linked to the MA 5i. Please consider good/very good speakers to take full advantage of the power and sound quality, which is smooth, detailed and powerful.
The Denon works well both with wifi and cable, even streaming the high resolution files from my NAS (Synology). But if you use the wifi a lot simultaneously with other devices, it is better to consider the cable since some interruptions in the music can occur. This is not the fault of the Denon but of the wifi network.
In summary, I am amazed with this affordable brilliant Denon piccolo.

Delighted with this micro system, especially its remarkably small footprint and range of input options, but with one major flaw. The unit has a built-in fan that kicks in automatically to cool the unit during extended periods use - and it's noisy.

The fan tends to kick in after 45-60 minutes of use and doesn't tend to turn itself off until the unit is manually restarted (i.e. turned off and on again). It's not too noticeable if you're using the unit to play music, but it's a pain if - like me - you're routing a TV through it, as the distracting hum of the fan is audible over speech and short silences.

Unfortunately space is very limited for me and there isn't a unit in this unusually small form factor with comparable connectivity, so I'm just going to have to get used to it. It's a big disappointment as its an otherwise excellent piece of kit and the reviews are almost uniformly positive.

As a first time purchaser of a Network Music System, I feel like I've made a good choice here, though it's not without some minor issues.

First the good points -

Size: it's a neat little box, deeper than I imagined and though plastic on the outside it's a fairly solid seeming bit of kit with a piano black finish.It wouldn't fit in with standard size separates, but as I was looking for a compact standalone device I'm happy with it.

Connectivity: It comes with most of the inputs/outputs that you're likely to need. Digital and analogue inputs, sub-woofer output as well as speakers, USB and iPod/Phone dock. It also plays MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC 192/24, WAV 192/24, and ALAC and setting it up was generally quite easy (but see below).

Sound quality: Played through an ancient set of speakers (that are due an upgrade soon) was excellent. It seemed to lack bass at first but that seems mainly to affect lossy files (played off the iPod or at that quality on the NAS). The bass response is better when playing lossless (in my case ALAC). The web radio is good, I have yet to try it out with Spotify or last.fm.

Now the things I don't like. All reasonably minor.

First of all something really minor but annoying at the time is that the binding posts were a bit too close together for my fat fingers so wiring up the speakers wasn't as easy as it should be.

Second, there may be an iPod dock, but the system doesn't come with adaptors for the different iPod designs which is something you should get for your money given that cheap and cheerful docks that are the equivalent of a transistor radio can do it.

Now the two biggest gripes.

Finding your NAS. I'm sure that it works out of the box most of the time, but when it doesn't...

I bought this model about six weeks ago and have been really pleased with it.

I have four ceiling speakers (8 ohm) providing both woofer and tweeter. The sound quality is great and I'm driving them as a pair in parallel presenting a 4 ohm load to the amp on each output. Works perfectly.

This amp is small and fits into a cupboard where a traditional amp would have been too big. A plus point for the Denon is that the cable bay at the rear is indented into the case, so you don't have to allow for protruding cables in the overall depth of the unit.

I use the Denon to feed from an external audio source (Squeezebox) and it has two external inputs that can be selected separately, a standard RCA plug and an optical input. If there's no audio for a few hours then the Denon will automatically turn off which is a great extra feature when it's hidden in a cupboard. It also has an iPod dock on the top, but I haven't used that.

I've connected this to my home WiFi and had no problems with it. Rock solid performance.

The iPhone app for the device is also good (again a plus point when you don't have line of sight with the supplied remote). It is customisable as well, this allowed me to put on the home page the functions I used all the time (i.e. select RCA input).

The product also has a Spotify application. When I bought the unit I didn't realise it did this (it also has internet radio) and as a Spotify premium subscriber on my Squeezebox meant I could use this instead. I must admit that initially this was flaky, but after improving my Wi-Fi coverage it now works great.

When I set up the unit it identified a firmware upgrade and I confirmed that it should download and install it. Worked great and really easy.

Overall a great small amplifier with great sound (assuming you've got good speakers and cable; my four ceiling speakers were under £100 for all of them).
