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.

Top customer reviews
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 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.
This one does both. With built in Intenet radio and wireless connectivity to my Iphone, my kids Android, and my PC, not to mention the great Cocoon App which provides access to all those internet radio stations around the world, this unit can play music from all gadgets loaded with music. Then there's podcasts and all that to include. I just don't have enough ears!
It was a little fiddely to set up, and more than 3 presets on the internet radio would have however the real special difference from other radios and speakers I have experienced is the sound. I've cranked it up and it will shake the house, however on the more regular everyday volume, the sound is great. You can hear instruments playing on tracks that I have not heard before.
Next day service from the supplier was a nice surprise too
