Having over 100 years in the design and manufacture of home entertainment products, Denon have a unique combination of experience, technological expertise and strong branding to ensure their products are always at the cutting edge of technology whilst being simple to operate and offering exceptional value for money.

Denon's D-M40 is the latest revision to the company's DAB-enabled micro system, and features a vast number of improvements to its already established predecessor, the DM39. The DM40 offers a clean and detailed sound response, and is designed to rejuvenate the integrity of the files stored within your Apple iPod and iPhone music libraries via the USB input. 

A 'Simple & Straight' circuitry design has been implemented within the DM-40 in order to drastically minimise unwanted distortion from the input selector,electronic volume and power amplification sections to provide a truly pure sound response, complete with every dynamic detail left intact. A Triple Noise Reduction Design has also been used in order to further preserve the quality of the signal. 

The D-M40 allows you to play audio from a number of sources, including FM, DAB, DAB+ and CD, as well as a USB-port for Apple devices and a digital input meaning that you can connect your television to the unit. The DM40 produces a room-filling 60 watts of total power, and the DAC chipset found within the unit is of high precision 192kHz/32Bit quality. This high quality DAC also gives the DM40 the ability to decode higher quality file types like FLAC and WAV.

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.
