Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Build quality seems very good and its a really nice looking neat unit.
Bad points:
If I had to be critical then I would say it sounds just a little restrained. I paired it up with Monitor Audio bronze bookshelf speakers connected up with Airloc terminated Qed Silver anniversary speaker cable but, and I may be harsh but compared to the separates (it was bought to replace it just doesn't seem to quite arrive. I kind of expected that though and if Mini systems are what you are used to its probably fantastic

Roger, Narberth

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great sound.Easy tuning for stations either Dab or Fm. Good sound enhances enjoyment when switched to TV on Aux through my old but good quality speakers.
Bad points:
Cable connections all in view unless the unit is put in some kind of cabinet, but this is partly due to its compact size, which I like.

HiFi Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

A brand new design built using audiophile components, with technologies derived from Denon’s Advanced Evolution Hi-fi Series, DAB, total iPod integration, a phono input and even an optional cassette deck.

The D-F102DAB replaces the D-F101 and does so with great panache. Each D-F102 starts life as two mini hi-fi separates, a CD Player and a Compact DAB/RDS Receiver, both packed with Denon’s latest audio technology and importanntly for 2007, Denon’s ECO Stand-by power circuit, using less than 0.1 w in standby.

When these are connected together, an array of remote & intelligent features come into operation, turning the components into a smart, easy-to-operate mini Hi-fi. The key to this product is that Denon care about music as well as looks, the electronics are way above average and the speakers are designed in Europe and voiced for UK tastes.
The D-F102 will fill all but the largest room with a quality and richness of sound that is very rare in systems of this class and unusually, the 102 has inputs for a phono turntable and an optional cassette deck.

Each miniature component is based on Denon’s Advanced Evolution hi-fi. The 102CD is an advanced 192kHz/24bit player, the 102DAB receiver uses audiophile design & components and a fully specified DAB/RDS tuner. Partnered with the new Denon Euro speakers, the sound quality is superb for a system of this size & price. As usual Denon don’t force customers to buy things they don’t need. The speakers and cassette are options.
