If you’ve been thinking about treating yourself to a new networked audio player, then look no further than Denon’s newly announced DNP-720AE; which should do the job nicely.
The AirPlay compatible network audio player has been circulating trade shows for quite some time, now though Denon have decided it’s the right time to release it to the masses.
The DNP-720AE can be easily attached to your current music system, where it will allow you to easily stream various content from the Internet, such as Internet radio as well as from sites such as Napster and Last.fm.
As mentioned, the DNP-720AE is AirPlay compatible allowing you to easily attach your iOS devices to the player, however you can also use your DLNA compatibly Android device; or any other compatible DLNA 1.5 product to stream audio to the system as well.
You’ll also be able to choose between using a wired Ethernet connection, or use the in-built Wi-Fi capabilities, you can also attach a USB device via the USB port on the front for playing back content as well. Being a Denon product, you’d obviously expect to have an excellent audio experience, and as the DNP-720AE features a 24-bit DAC, you should hopefully get the quality you’re after.
Also being a Denon, you can expect it to be quite pricey as well; $660 to be precise or around £430.
