Denon DNP-720AE Network Audio Player Review

Denon has come out of the digital music network server gate with a bang. The DNP-720AE is a well conceived multifunctional unit that plays just about all digital sources wired or wirelessly, discs excluded. Besides sporting Napster, Rhapsody and Pandora services, the AIrPlay function opens up iTunes libraries, a USB port accesses music storage devices or iPods. There's even a built-in AM/FM tuner for analog fans. i-device owners can also take advantage of the Denon Remote App.

Rotel RSP-1570/RMB-1575 Surround Sound Processor/5 Channel Amplifier Review

The Rotel RSP-1570/RMB-1575 Surround Sound Processor/Five Channel Amplifier are a match made in heaven that offer flexible setup, superb performance with movie soundtracks, and enriching music playback that rivals more expensive preamps. The RSP-1570 lacks automatic setup/room correction, Dolby Volume and network connectivity which are features found in similar products at its price point. However the good outweighs the bad and enthusiasts who are searching for high quality sound, user friendly setup, and sturdy construction wrapped in an understated but elegant package that exudes class should head to the nearest Rotel dealer for an audition.
