Denon DNP-720AE Network Audio Player - Black by Denon

I bought one of these as soon as they came out in 2011. I had a Denon TU1800DAB tuner which was a great FM radio and even managed to make ghastly DAB transmissions sound decent. I wanted the Internet radio and AirPlay capability, whilst still being able to get god quality FM. I must be one of the few people who paid the original 427 rrp, I was that keen to get one. Initially it seemed ok, though I never thought the FM sound was quite as good as the stand alone tuner. But over the time I've had it I've struggled with the network connection whether using it wireless or wired to the router.

I was intrigued by this, but it works beautifully. The movements of Bach's D minor solo violin Partita interspersed with Bach Chorale settings. Then the great Chaconne with closes the Partita gently overlaid with the sung chorales which are apparently hidden within it. Beautifully done, too, the violin is never obscured. Then the final held open/stopped d' which concludes the partita segues into the octave d's which open the Fauré Requiem. Which in turn is a beautiful and moving performance. Cumulatively the effect is powerful and highly moving. Highly recommended!
