Bottom Line:   
I recently acquired this amp with the built in phono stage and remote control for £40.It was to be used in a bedroom system.Just for a laugh i took out my Primare A20mk2 and popped the Denon in.Well i was more than impressed at what i heard.Having listened to it it's plainly obvious why it garnered so many 5 star reviews.Once warmed up it can punch way above its weight.If it doesn't sound right then you'd best look at the rest of your gear because it won't be the Denon.
The Primare is worth approximately 10 times the cost of the Denon but the Denon is so close to it sonically.If you were to be picky that last ounce of grip at the bottom isn't what it could be but thats comparing it to a £1000 amp.It really is that good.Its downfall is the fact that its a nondescript black box that lacks the 'audiophile' look it should have for the sound it produces.It does look like it means business with that spartan facia though.
Amplification hasn't moved on, just gotten cheaper, a fantastic sound in the mid 90's is still a fantastic sound today 14 years later.You could build a serious hi fi around this amplifier for absolute peanuts...Get one.

Bottom Line:   
Cheap and good perfoming amplifier designed in UK (no tone regulations, 'minimalistic' design). The midrange is clear, voices sound good and natural; bass & hi's aren't exposed. Bass is controlled well, and sounds natural, not boomy. Highs aren't harsh, they're quite clear. Overally the sound balance is very good at this price. Timing is pretty ok. With good CD and speakears you can get really good soundstage - there are really few amps at this price that can do it. This model is discontinued, but it's worth to look for it on second hand market if you're short on cash and want good sound (not much in stereothypical 'japanase' style).

Bottom Line:   
prime time listening is anytime with the denon amp, it subtly copes with classical, rock, jazz, vocal and pop with ease. I am currently running two pairs of linn index 1's - the amplifier brings out the very best in them.

Another Bargain from ebay., incidentlly

Bottom Line:   
This amplifier may have been good against the competition 5 years ago but against Nad, Rotel and Marantz it lags behind. Its not a bad sound just a little harsh and edgy at times. It also fails to dig out emotion in the music. For detail it's ok, but check out marantz and their 4200 if thats what your after. Simply put an average performer against its competitors. This extends to the newer 355 model.
