With its iPhone/iPod dock, stereo loudspeakers and trendsetting profile, the N7 system is ideal for bringing powerful, great sounding music to any room in the house.
Unleash Your iTunes Library and “Give Your Home a Soundtrack!”
With the free AirPlay upgrade, users can literally “give their home a soundtrack” by unleashing their iTunes music libraries whether from Mac or PC and streaming all their favorite iTunes songs, as well as music stored on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, to select components through their Wi-Fi enabled networks.

Additionally, by combining Denon’s RCD-N7 CD Receiver and SC-N7 Stereo Loudspeakers, the N7 system offers users a straightforward, simple and efficient way to create a networked system throughout the home.

In addition to full iPod/iPhone connectivity, the RCD-N7 allows users to listen to today’s popular online music services such as Rhapsody, Napster and Pandora, as well as stream music wirelessly from their PC. The RCD-N7 also provides users with the capability to playback CD, enjoy AM/FM radio and more. Most importantly, the receiver features full digital processing, which provides a pure signal transfer and optimum audio performance from all sources.

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) allows for easy and secure establishment of a wireless home network, and a 3-line OLED display makes it easy to see exactly where the music is coming from. The unit’s Plug ‘n Play capability means that when an iPhone or iPod are plugged in, it begins to play automatically. The simple and intuitive remote control has a “Direct” button for instant access to the music source.
