Denon HT system with iPod portable audio connectivity

This site has moved to

Denon has announced two home theater systems that feature connectivity to portable audio players. Obviously special consideration is made for Apple iPod. Both devices will come in a package with pair of loudspeakers and a subwoofer.

Notable facts:

  • DVD-Audio and Super Audio CD along with DVD-Video
  • HDMI output at 480p/720p/1080i
  • Faroudja FLI2310 DCDi chipset
  • Dual Analog Devices ADV-7310 12-bit/216MHz video D/A converters
  • 192kHz/24-bit audio D/A converters
  • Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound decoding
  • Dolby Virtual Speaker technology
  • Dolby Headphone signal processing
  • USB port
  • Recharges iPod while connected
  • OSD mimics iPods
Pricing kinda hurts - MSRP for S-301 is $1499 and $999 for S-101. Millions of students and teenagers will be left out of this plug-n-play pleasure.

For those who are interested Denon has [we]blogs for S Series, although they currently are not being updated. Keep an eye for them. Here are the feeds:
