Bottom Line:   
Densen B100 mkV paired with Dynaudio Audience 52SE and CD player Densen B400 plus. IC Audiotruth Diamond x3 and Audiotruth Forest speaker cables. One word: Fabulous! Densen is very sensitive with cables but older Audioquest (Audiotruth) is best match.

Bottom Line:   
I have B-100 MKV since 2003.I spent too much time and money to set up the system, and finally sonds fantastic.It paired with Dynaudio Audience 62 speakers, Meridian G 06 CD, but cables I have made system sounds like 10 time priced.The cables are Transparent audio MW +, ML super, and Transparent power.Gill solus is the mains flter. The cables gives to a system very neutral, transorent 3 D soudn vith planty of dynamic.I listen jazz, rock ,classic... evrerything sunds excelent. Second system I have Naim 5i, Nat 2 cord oddisey cable sound poor.
I never change densen B 100... Yes, densen is very difficult to pair it, but if You do that-The music densen made put smile in your face.
Dynaudio and Transparent are the bes densen's partners.

Bottom Line:   
A very, very good amplifier for the money, i've never come across an amplifier that's better in this price category.
But don't get overexcited here. It does, despite what others say, have it's flaws (compared to other more expensive amps)

Bass is weak. A drum does not sound like one. Because of the weak bass region, there is almost no depth in the soundstage.

If you are considering buying a used Densen. Please do so. If you consider buying a new Densen integrated amp, i suggest buying a better (used) amp for that money.

Bottom Line:   
This amp gave me a new experience when auditioning audio gear: spontaneous joy. I just broke out in a big fat smile when first heard it. That was all the demo I needed.
It has all the strengths needed to convey a wonderful listening experience from your favourite music. Dynamics, precsition, soundstage. Fabulous.
Oh...and an air guitar is included ;-)

There is a lot of talk about the impotance of matching this amp with the right equipment. This is true of all systems, but I think there is something to what is sad about avoiding bright-sounding stuff. I have a couple of Dali Grand Diva's (also Danish) and they seem to thrive in each other's company.

Bottom Line:   
Before using this sleek, sexy amp, I was a great fan of big American amps like Krell, Aragon, ML. Big expansive soundstage with stunning clarity and focus. But, i came to realised i was enjoying the setup more than the music, I no longer purchase a many CDs as I do.

Then came along the Densen, it can't do what the above amps does best, but one thing it does very well, is "Make Music". Ys, I know, musicality is a very subjective thing, but for me, musicality is the thing that make you enjoy listening to the music. It is something that mades you want to turn on your system to reidscover your CDs, it is something that makes you want to listen to more music. This Densen, though, at just a fraction of those American amps, it certainly does the "Musicality" thing very well. This is a music making machine!
