Apr 21, 2015

Mahwah, NJ April 21, 2015 – Denon, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products, is pleased to announce a further advancement of its popular Micro Hi-Fi System. Following in the footsteps of the multi-award winning D-M39, the new D-M40 features a serious Hi-Fi quality CD Receiver RCD-M40 along with an optimized two-way speaker system SC-M40. The new D-M40 combines high-quality sound with a beautiful appearance. The system is expected to be available in June for $479.

For almost 20 years, Denon’s M Series has been developed to meet the needs of modern day audio enthusiasts wanting a micro size stereo system without compromising on sound and build quality. The D-M40 comes with improved connectivity options such as two digital optical inputs to hook up a TV, set-top box or other digital gear that would benefit from improved audio quality. Besides its stunning stereo sound performance, the D-M40’s USB port is not only capable of playing MP3 and WMA files, but also lossless FLAC, WAV and AAC. Moreover, it still provides a digitally transmitted play function for iDevices, upgrading the sound from these mobile devices dramatically. For very personal listening, the new D-M40 owns an upgraded headphone amplifier section with dedicated Gain Control.

Its 8.27” width and 12.13” depth compact size (plus speakers) allows for an easy setup of the D-M40 on a bookshelf, in a bedroom or in the home office. It easily blends into peoples’ daily life, delivering impeccable performance at the same time. The renowned sound quality originates from Denon’s “simple & straight” concept. All circuits are uncomplicated, signal paths are short, and all adverse influences on the sound signal have been minimized. The circuit design and the way the chassis is built ensure that the sound heard is utterly faithful to the original performance.
