In a major leap forward for home entertainment connectivity and convenience, Denon Electronics, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment components, today announced its two new S-Series Networked Audio Systems, Models S-52 (SRP: $699) and S-32 (SRP: $499) are now available to consumers.
