Denon D-M39DAB Mini System

Denon's D-M39DAB Mini System continues the success of it's forebear, the D-M38, and features a classic hi-fi appearance, as well as a wide range of listening options, including digital radio and CD with USB iPod docking, all in a compact housing with great sound at an affordable price. The D-M39 brings a massive sound to a compact and discrete design. Special noise-reducing techniques create an unparalleled clarity to any sound format, while dual speaker output forms enough audio power to truly fill the space of any room. It'll even charge your Apple gadgets while you're listening to them.

The Denon DM series of compact hi-fi systems has been developed over many years with the aim of increasing sound quality and facilities, to continually meet the needs of modern music fans. The DM39's compact size of just 21cm width and 31 cm depth means that it is very suitable for music lovers looking for a very compact, high performance audio solution, and can be easily positioned on a shelf, in the bedroom or on a desk in your office.

The DM39 offers plenty of listening options - besides an FM and DAB/ DAB+ tuner, it has a CD player which can also playback CD-R discs containing WMA or MP3 files. The front panel USB port allows playback from an iPod or iPhone, and WMA and MP3 files can be played from a USB stick or hard drive, whilst an analogue input allows the connection of a multitude of external sources, such as a turntable (phono pre-amp needed), Android phone, TV or games console. When you connect your iPhone or iPad to the USB port, due to the high resolution 24 bit 192kHz internal DAC, it is possible to enjoy much greater audio quality than from a standard iPod speaker. Control of playback can be achieved via the DM39 remote control, or via the touch screen of the iDevice.

For the D-M39DAB there are a number of new features - firstly there is now a rear panel optical digital input, ideal for connecting to flat screen TV's, set top box or Apple Airport Express to name but three - the result is even more functionality in one, compact enclosure.

Even though the D-M39 is a small device, it has excellent sound quality due to the following four aspects of it's design:-

  • European sound tuning - the sound of the DM39 has been tuned to appeal to the preferences of the European customer, by utilising custom made capacitors in the signal path. 
  • A simple and straight circuit design is applied, resulting in a smooth and clear audio quality due to the separation of the four main circuit blocks inside - preamplifier, power amplifier, CD mechanism and power supply. This results in less unwanted noise and distortion entering the audio signal. 
  • Analogue and digital circuit blocks are separated in the unit, and also both have separate power supplies. 
  • The optional SC-M39 speakers have been improved over previous models, both the tweeter and woofer are fresh designs and are linked together with a crossover network intended to mimic the naturalness and smoothness of natural sound.
One remaining improvement in the DM39 over previous models is ease of use:-
  • the remote control has been simplified in layout, and has a glossy black cosmetic finish, with larger buttons and optimised positioning of frequently used functions
  • iPhone or iPod is now charged via the USB socket, even when the DM39 is itself in standby
  • Unnecessary energy consumption has been reduced - the standby consumption has been significantly reduced, and auto power off circuit is now fitted, turning of the unit after a short period of inactivity

DM39DAB is available in black or silver finishes, the SC-M39 speakers are available in black only.

Bowers & Wilkins 686 S2 Bookshelf speaker

The 686 S2 builds upon the high standards of versatility and sound quality found within its predecessor, while also improving upon the aesthetic nature of the speaker itself. The 686 S2 is the ideal bookshelf or wall-mount speaker solution for any music enthusiast looking to achieve the best results from their music source. The speaker utilises a 5 inch bass/midrange driving unit, which has been improved with the integration of a new 25mm voice coil. This allows the speaker to act much more sensitive in order to deliver the most precise and detailed sound response. 

The bass performance of the 686 S2 has been improved also. Now featuring a forward-firing flow-port, complete with B&W specific 'dimpled' design, the 686 S2 is able to deliver an exceptionally liquid bass response while drastically reducing potential unwanted resonance and external vibration. The use of a front-firing port means that the speaker can be placed either close to, or physically on to a wall without effecting the bass response of the unit. The back of the 686 features an already integrated bracket to make wall-mounting the speaker an easy task.
The 686 has been reduced in size to exist in a much slimmer and more compact cabinet. As with all 600 S2 series speakers, the 686 utilises a specialised decoupled, double dome aluminium tweeter to offer a dramatically superior high-frequency response.
