A fast broadband connection to the Internet is achieved via an Ethernet cable or wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), allowing for a unique music experience anywhere at home. Since the RCD-N7 supports WPS, it is incredibly easy to connect to a Wi-Fi network and immediately enjoy the benefits, like playing music files from a PC or directly from DLNA network hard discs or listen to more than 15,000 Internet radio stations worldwide. The Ceol also offers AirPlay music streaming via a feature upgrade.
The system also play CDs, incorporates an FM/AM radio, while music files recorded on USB memory or other portable media are equally at home. Despite the RCD-N7's compact size, it delivers plenty of power with a 130W output, filling the listening space with beautiful sound.
The new CEOL system comprises the RCD-N7 network CD receiver and the SC-N7 speaker set and features the company's highly acclaimed “simple & straight” circuit design and minimum signal path to optimise performance in sound quality.
In keeping with Denon's commitment to eco-friendly engineering throughout its product line, the standby power of the system is below 0.4W, helping eliminate unnecessary power usage. The new CEOL by Denon will change the way of enjoying music and will be available in a white colour finish from November. The RCD-N7 ($599) and SC-N7 ($199) will also be sold separately to meet every consumer's demand.
