Denon AVR-S700W& Envaya Bluetooth Speaker Reviews
D&M Holdings has been on a tear recently. The company that owns Denon has been flooding the market with products chock full of cutting edge features, and priced at amazingly reasonable price points. They must be keeping their engineers pretty busy as it seems they are keeping one step ahead of most of the competition. And, with economies of scale, their ability to innovate is certainly impressive. I recently reviewed the DHT-S514 soundbar, which I really liked, and the fabulous DA-300USB DSD DAC and headphone amp. I found both products well made and engineered. The DA-300USB came in very handy as a reviewing tool, with its high resolution, universal format decoding, and great ergonomics. These days, we have seen the market shift to a demand for products that can become the center of a domestic entertainment system. Fast changing technologies, ...

Darwin Truth Silver Cable Review
Over the past year or so I have come to rely on a few cable manufacturers that make reference products at their price points and even beyond. Darwin Cables, who I first heard about from Mark O’Brien of Rogue Audio, initially sent me their standard Silver offering, which sells for $295. I was so impressed, I went on to review their higher-level Ascension, which featured several design enhancements essential to high-end cable performance: low mass ends, military grade solid core silver conductors, and air dielectric. Darwin is a bit unique in that they not only use scientific methods to voice their cables, but they also rely heavily on subjective impressions from a carefully chosen listening panel, for lack of a better term. Sometimes what looks good on paper does not translate into improved performance.I have to admit, after having the ...

Denon DA-300USB DAC Review
Denon has introduced a number of notable new products in the last year or so, including streamers, AV receivers, Blu-ray players, HiFi components, and headphones. I recently reviewed their very nice DHT-S514 Soundbar. Add to the list of hot new items: the Denon DA-300USB DSD DAC and headphone amplifier. It retails for $499. With the DA-300USB, Denon has entered the exciting and fiercely competitive market of sub-$1000 multi-function digital decoders. Denon has a long history with digital, and there is a lot of engineering muscle to call on. Their universal disc players were coveted in the time that SACD and DVD-A were making a push, and their AV Receivers have been top performers. Fast forward to 2014 and computer audio has now gone mainstream. Disc players have clearly taken a back seat, although they are still being ...

Denon DHT-S514 Soundbar Review
Television soundbars are all the rage today, and for good reason. They allow you to enjoy high fidelity sound -- without a bank of front, right, center, and rear channel speakers -- in a tight space. Soundbar technology advancements have been significant as of late, taking them well beyond "lifestyle" products in their evolution.The market for soundbars seems rather obvious to me. They are tailor made for small urban apartments, bedrooms, and dens. As a matter of fact, my bedroom has a Vizio 42-inch TV, but despite the unit's subpar built-in speakers, there's certainly no space for a surround system. It was extremely timely, then, when Denon approached me to review their latest soundbar, the DHT-S514, which retails for $649.According the Denon, the unit, "features 175 watts of total system power, the DHT-S514 soundbar and wireless subwoofer together deliver true ...

Densen B-110 Integrated Amplifier & Darwin Cables Silver Interconnect Review
Densen Audio Technologies, out of Denmark, may be unknown to many high-end audio enthusiasts in the US, but in Europe and Asia, they are considered among the top tier of high performance audio. I had the distinct pleasure of living with several Densen pieces in the past, including the B-200 preamplifier and the B-310 power amplifier. Individually, and as a pair, I thought they were high value, high fidelity components, with good looks to boot. At a combined price of around $4500, they competed with much more expensive gear that this reviewer has heard. While I was impressed with this pair, I wanted to hear one of Densen’s integrated amplifiers, which consistently get rave reviews abroad.Enter the Densen B-110 integrated amp, rated at 60 watts per channel into 8 Ohms, and doubles to 120 watts per channel into 4 ohms. ...
