Denon S-101 review

 

The Denon S-101 turns its hand to films, music and radio and a supplied cable charges your iPod and allows you to browse it from the Denon remote

A versatile, desirable and above all useful Denon – but not the last word in surround sound

Denon S-101 review

 

Can a sub/sat trio provide home cinema-quality sound?

There's a lot to like and very little to dislike about this Denon

As a 2.1 system the S-101 performs well, but the virtual 5.1 capability is not as good as having more speakers.

Excellent build quality and styling, good sound quality, built in iPod support.

Surround sound not up to much, a bit expensive.

Denon S-101

 

Review summary Let's face it: you wouldn't wear an Armani suit with a Casio watch on your wrist, and most all-in-one home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems look out of place next to upscale flat-screen TVs. And HTIB sound, while impressive for the...

2.1-channel HTIB; elegant design; controls iPod functions and displays navigation menus on your TV; USB input provides connection with non-iPod music players; HDMI digital-video output scales DVD output to high-def resolutions; easy setup; excellent...

Expensive; no HDMI inputs; no upconversion of analog video on HDMI output.

With its abundant feature set, great sound quality, eye-catching design, and superlative ease of use, iPod-friendly Denon S-301 2.1 home-theater system is the best we've reviewed so far.

Denon S-101 Home Entertainment System Review

 

While my condo is pretty accommodating for the three of us, it has little space to accommodate a 5.1 surround system, well, perhaps a dinky cubed system, but I'd prefer my clock radio as an

Easy setup ; Good value ; Commendable sound ; Space efficient

Can sound compressed with highly dynamic sources ; Average surround envelopment ; Ho hum disc tracking ability

Denon S-series DVD Home Entertainment System

 

I just bought and installed this yesterday. The first and most striking thing as you remove it from the large box, is the substantial feel of the components. They feel heavy, solid and well built with a beautiful finish, especially the solid brushed...

Awesome sound

Denon S-101 Theater System

 

Pleasing to the eye, good sound especially from CD/DVD, easy setup
