The system looks good despite being all shiny black plastic.

Streaming FLAC and MP3 from my NAS over WiFi works well. Sound quality is good. Lots of power. It seemed to be a bit heavy on the bass initially, but as the speakers loosened up the sound quality has got better.

Where this device falls down is Internet radio. Often it will report "Connection Down", will not start playing the station, or will stop playing the station midway. I generally connect to BBC Internet Radio stations. Thinking it might be WiFi I connected this up to Wired, directly into my Virgin cable 20Mbps cable modem. I still have Internet Radio problems. Oddly the Roberts Radio Internet radio in the kitchen with WiFi has no problems with connectivity. Similarly I have no issues streaming Netflix videos at 720p over my Internet connection. This devices biggest weakness is that it does not recover from Internet radio streaming problems well. Often it just stops playing. You have to go back to favourites and pick the station again and it will start playing again. I reckon the buffering and timeouts need adjusting in the firmware.

I wish I had bought the more expensive Ceol with FM Radio, because given the poor Internet Radio connectivity issues this one becomes a bit of an expensive paperweight.

Hifi is small and compact and very good looking. It is absolutely tiny, yet it has ample connections, so it can be connected to virtually any device. Sound quality is excellent, provided you use a different set of speakers to the Denon ones provided, which do not demonstrate it in the best light.
Instantly connected to airplay with no setting up. The inbuilt internet radio can be slightly temperamental (it's also quite slow to load up), so i prefer to use tunein radio app on my iphone which connects to the device wirelessly and has no problems. I was originally going to buy Sonos play 5, but I am glad I chose this instead, as the Sonos is simply no match in terms of sound quality to this hifi. Overall, it's a brilliant device, and would thoroughly recommend.

All network features worked well for several months then just started to fail. Only working feature that is not beset with problems is Airplay. Getting any response from Denon is like getting blood from a stone.

Unless you have Airplay available products, give this system a very wide berth.

Three stars from me just because at present the sound and volume while using Airplay are more than ample for me. Will not be buying a Denon system when I do replace tho.

This is a good sounding little unit and very good value for money. However if, like me, you buy it hoping to use the Airplay feature make sure your internet is not coming through a BT Home Hub. The BT Home hub does not support Airplay believe it or not and the only way to make this feature work is to replace your router! There are many complaints to this effect on the web and the Denon helpdesk confirmed this to be the case. Denon told me that they have raised the issue with BT with no success. BT blame PACE as the manufacturer of the router and PACE blame BT's software!

Sound quality is great, remote control works well for the basic functions (but at times the interface hangs), searching Spotify is a pain (the loss of LastFM and BBC online radio is a disappointment).
The real problem with this device is the rubbish IOS and Android app and since the appeal of having my phone control my sound system isn't functional I'll be giving up on the Ceol.

Its good but the bass is lacking a bit. Listening to my main hifi and the bass really but here it is light. With headphones on it is almost non existent.
Has rave reviews . Its okay but not hifi quality. Hazel O'Connor's Will You on my hifi you can really hear every nuance of the sax and her wispy vocals shimmer across the soundstage. Here it is missing somewhat.
