Robert , London Audio Fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Purchased as a bedroom hifi and alarm clock that would do Airplay. Stylish, capable, and feature rich. B/W only display (some competitors have colour to display album art), but still has that Mac-like cool styling. Very good sound quality (my other amps are Creek and Arcam in comparison) for the price. This unit actually updated it's own firmware over the internet to add Spotify capabilities, which was impressive in it's ease. Airplay integration well done, and Lightning adapter will dock an iPhone 5 and support it to the unit's 30-pin connector well. Get a Flybridge dock adapter if you want to use an iPad mini.
Bad points:
Remote is full-featured, but unlit, a real failing in a unit that actually includes an alarm clock! Wifi seems to latch on to neighbouring unsecured wifi rather than staying locked on mine (this may be fixed by the "manual" config option, we will see). Search of Plex music server seems very slow and not accurate. Did not purchase with Denon's recommended speakers - the white Monitor Audio Vectors are currently on sale for the same price, and are much better speakers.
