The D-M39DAB is a high grade CD receiver and speaker system that lets you enjoy beautiful music in remarkable sound quality from a compact unit. High-quality sound has been a hallmark of Denon Hi-Fi components thanks to technologies it has developed and tweaked over many years.
The D-M39DAB system can also be expanded by connecting devices to the digital audio inputs and passing music signals from those devices through the D-M39DAB’s superior audio circuitry to produce a rich, dynamic sound. Of course, there is also a USB port on the front panel for you to connect an iPhone or iPod touch and play music from that in a quality and depth of sound much superior to the sound you hear from headphones. The tactile aluminium front panel of the main unit combined with the speakers harmonizes easily with any interior, complementing the purity of sound that you can enjoy from a variety of sources.
The beautiful sound plus the refined design are a joy to behold.

Vinyl vs Digital
One of the most commonly asked question is what is better? Vinyl or Digital music.
Short answer is both have their pros and cons.
I will go through the differences are we see them and try to list the pros and cons as comprehensively as we can.
- Delivers analog sound. This is what is refered to as a 'warm' sound. Analog sound is what we hear with our ears. The vibration of the styli (needle) in the groove of the record creates sine waves that is then reproduced by the amplifier and speakers. There is no digital conversion that is an estimate of the music.
- Can last a lifetime.
- Cartidges and styli can usually be upgraded.
- Delivers a wider frequency range including ultrasonic frequencies (above 20 kHz) that have been shown to help the body release endorphines that brings on that 'feel-good' feeling.
- Potentially more accurate sound.
- Can come with booklets with band photos and lyrics.
- Can be easily damaged.
- Large music collections can take up alot of space.
- Not 'toddler friendly' (though they DO make good frisbees)
- Needs more maintenance.
- Not a portable media.
- Large collections in very small space.
- Can be used in multiple devices. (computers, phones, MP3 players, CDs, USB sticks, etc)
- Much less suseptible to physical damage than vinyl.
- Can be organised much more efficiently. (search entire music libraries with a simple click)
- Digital devices can be improved by external Digital to Analog Convertors. (DACs)
- Can be digitally remastered after recording. (Usually done is a studio)
- Easy to make copies of files.
- Can lose entire collections if hard discs fail.
- Doesn't have the 'warmth' that vinyl has.
- Is not an exact copy of the music. Digital music is an estimate that is accomplished with 'sample rates' (the higher the sample rate the closer to the original)
- A lot of digital music is compressed. (lower sound quality)
- Potential compatability issues with different file types on different hardware.
