Denon has long been a player in the high end audio market. Any company that can weather 100 years in such a competitive industry—one that has witnessed the massive paradigm shift from analog to digital—must be doing something right. While the company name has changed slightly over the decades, their dedication to quality design and style has remained a constant. Early developers of digital, Denon has specialized in high-fidelity professional and consumer audio from the beginning.
As a celebration of their 100th birthday Denon is giving away some of their newest, sexiest gear to one lucky CH reader. Their high quality RCD-N7 stereo receiver and SC-N7 speakers, an $800 value, are up for grabs. This system features crystal sound clarity packaged inside a sleek compact design. What really distinguishes it from the dusty component system sitting on your bookshelf is the total integration of wireless streaming music technology.
To start off the Denon system will link directly into Apple's Airplay system to stream your entire iTunes library. If you demand variety and freedom from your technology, don't fret because the system will also stream from Rhapsody, Napster, Pandora, Last.fm or any other networked computer. Of course it contains all the standard audio inputs like USB, digital optical, RCA AM/FM radio and a built in iPod dock. The real sweet feature is the Party Mode Plus—a five system, multi-zone networked management system that can be distributed throughout your whole house and is controlled by Denon's iPhone/iPad/iPod application.
Additionally, two second prize winners will receive the Denon AH-NC600 noise-canceling earphones. These earbuds feature Denon's acoustic optimizer technology that create a balanced natural tonal range. The Denon AH-NC600 offer the option of turning the noise canceling function on or off, and are completely compatible with iPhones and iPods.
Denon fans can enter to win the stereo, speakers and headphones by following Cool Hunting on Twitter (essential so we can DM you if you win), and Tweeting #Denon along with which band you would love to hear coming out of Denon speakers. We will pick three winners at random on 7 January 2010 at 10am EST.
