The test setup

Contents

We had the Denon playing in two systems. First, in the study with a Bluesound Node 2i and our Sonus Faber Lumina II. That works extremely well. We hear a wonderfully open and rhythmic playback. The second set-up is in the reference system with the TAD Evolution Two with the Alpha Audio PC and the Sonnet and Grimm DAC. That too works surprisingly well. So don’t underestimate this Denon!
