Bottom Line:   
I purchased this system for use in my bedroom, mainly for background listening. It is a nice looking system, with style galore. The Mission speakers certainly have a finish that belies their mini system origins.In use, there is enough power to fill my bedroom with decent quality sound. The speakers struggle at higher volumes,but more than hold their own at normal/ background listening levels. The tuner could be a little more sensitve, as it has some trouble picking up stations that my 3802 receiver picks up rather handily.The CD player is good, with the only gripe being that you can't open it with the remote.Another minor annoyance is the display,I wish you didn't have to hit display on the remote to show time when the unit is off, and the digits could have been somewhat largerso you could read them from the bed.I will probably change out the little Missions at some point for some thing with a little more lower end, such as the Atoms from Paradigm.Maybe...

Bottom Line:   
I bought the DM30 a couple of days ago for my bedroom, I coupled it to a pair of good small B&W boxes and the results are above my expectations. The sound is clear and neutral. At a reasonnable volume, it competes easily with my 5 times more expensive main system (High end Yamaha+Tannoy)
PS : I do no experience any hum as mentionned in other reviews.

Bottom Line:   
I own Manepan 1.5's hooked up to VTL amps with alot of expensive gear and cables, but I was impressed with the amount of sound you can get from the Denon. It has a very reserved and natural sound without sounding hifi or pathetically trying to exagerate bass and treble(like the yamaha) I bought the Denon on a recommendation from all the British hifi mags. None of them complained about hum, but I really don't trust magazines anyway, there just glorified catalogs that push products for advertising money.But I have found that hum is usually the fault of the power cords being used. If you hook the Denon up to an extension cord that has alot of unfiltered inputs on it than expect hum. Also I think the main reason for the hum is that the Denon has an electrical input on the back that allows you to use it to power another component. That always creates hum and you should never use that option. Buy a line conditioning extension cord, plug everything into it, avoid the electrical input on the Denon and make sure every component is grounded. I have had no problems.

Bottom Line:   
All these cheap mini systems have some sort of distortion. So you pick the minisystem with the distortion your ears are less sensitive to or doesn't show up on the type of music that you play.
Denon with tyhe little speakers has good harmonics and is not bright like most Jap stuff but, sound is EXTREMELY boxy and shut-in. The $450 Onkyo is much more open but can be a bit bright.
Here are two MUCH better systems:

This Yamaha MCR-150 is the best I've heard (except for their MCR-250) and at $169 can't be beat (you can hear this at Best Buys but don't pay the $300) get it here:
