Denon DSD300 Cocoon Portable Wireless Speaker Dock for iPod/iPhone
Stream music wirelessly and enjoy crisp, clear sound on the go with the Cocoon Portable iPod Dock. The Cocoon Portable connects to your 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 integrated carrying handle, a five-hour rechargeable battery, and a water-resistant case.
Tuned for premium sound outdoors
The Cocoon Portable's high-fidelity speakers are acoustically optimised and tuned for outdoor use to ensure premium sound. Two full-range drivers and two 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; and thanks to its long-lasting battery, you can listen to your music for up to five hours on a single charge.
Stream music wirelessly from any mobile device
Using AirPlay and DLNA technologies, the Cocoon Portable lets you stream music wirelessly from your iTunes library or mobile device – Apple, Android, or Windows – using a mobile network. You can also listen to internet radio stations and save your favourites with three on-board presets.
Water-resistant, one-piece design
The compact Cocoon Portable has an integrated carrying handle for portability. It is constructed with a one-piece chassis, rubberised buttons, and a metal grill, making the case sturdy and water-resistant. A removable rubber cover protects the back ports from sand, dirt, and water so you can take your music to the park or beach with confidence. For convenience, the speaker also has a small storage slot for the included remote control, so you don't have to worry about losing it.
Retractable dock for iPod or iPhone
The Cocoon automatically charges your iPod or iPhone 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. A 3.5 mm auxiliary input lets you connect and play music from other audio sources, such as a portable CD player or MP3 player.
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.
A WPS button for fast setup with Wi-Fi networks and an Ethernet port so you can stream music from the internet even without Wi-Fi are built into the Cocoon.

As another reviewer mentions, this comes with a European 2 pin plug as standard. As the unit needs charged prior to use, and without a UK mains lead, it's effectively useless straight from the box! Absolutely staggering considering the original £500 RRP! As first impressions go, it's not a great start.
Fortunately (for me), it uses a figure of 8 mains lead which I was able to nick from another appliance in the home.
Once charged and connected to my wi-fi (there's also an ethernet port if you want to use it with a network cable), sound quality from my iPod was good and a marked improvement over some cheaper docks that I've heard. It's relatively portable and was quite easily moved from room to room, even to the garden where it didn't drop the wifi signal. iTunes found it quickly and I was able to stream music via Airplay with ease. Internet Radio was also fairly simple to set-up.
The small screen displays battery life, wifi signal strength and track information. It's bright and clear and was fairly easy to read from across the room. There's also a small credit card sized remote supplied although Denon's app proved easier to use.
On the downside, there are only 3 pre-sets for the Internet Radio Stations, not a great choice (whilst you could play the radio directly from an iPhone if you've got an app like Tune-In, it's not much use if you're an iPod user).Read more ›
The app is really straightforward to use and I like the fact that I can just stream my music to it through Airplay from my iPad, iPhone and my laptop. I’ve also had a bit of a play with the Internet Radio which has too many stations to even think about!
Due to the great weather, I haven’t yet been able to test its ‘Water resistance’ but I have had it in the garden with me and it still streams my music with no problems.
On top of all this, I found out I can claim a Free pair of Wireless Denon Headphones too!
My main gripe with the system is the sound quality. I've had a Bose sound dock for several years and I'm used to the extra punch that it delivers. The Denon just doesn't compare, it has little bass to speak of.
Also has other little niggles which a firmware update would probably sort out. All in all, the unit looks better on paper then it performs in real life.
There is the option to apply the firmware upgrade through a browser but good luck finding a download link for the flasher. I couldn't find any. At least there are software updates. I had a Philips Soundring that I bought in November 2011 and am still awaiting an improved software for this device.
However I think that AirPlay the way it is now is a wet towel which is Apple's 'fault' and nobody else's. It's improved a little as of late but still has some way to go.
If you enjoy sussing out how stuff works and are persistent this might be the thing for you. If you look for something that comes out of the box and 'JUST WORKS' ... this device is not for you.
