Denon Adds New Products That Focus on Whole-Home Connectivity

Mahwah, NJ — July 24, 2007 — Denon Electronics, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment components, is demonstrating its broad-based commitment to advanced home entertainment and connectivity with the introduction of two advanced Network-Enabled A/V Clients, models ASD-3N and ASD-3W, both with iPod command and control. Denon is also introducing the DHT-FS3 Active Surround Sound System, a stylish solution for adding great surround sound to flat-panel TVs. Denon’s new products stress convenience and ease of installation and use, and provide custom integrators with new ways to expand the home entertainment environment for their clients.

Joe Stinziano, Denon’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing noted, “Denon has always been about creating products that allow consumers to enhance and expand their enjoyment of home entertainment. With our new product introductions, we’re expanding into entirely new product categories, offering a variety of new solutions that offer ‘boundless’ opportunities for enjoying high quality audio, video and interactivity throughout the home. Our new generation of Network Enabled A/V Clients and the DHT-FS3 speaker system offer quick and easy options for users to enjoy a wide variety of features and networking capabilities.”

Network Connectivity With On-Screen Display
Denon’s model ASD-3N and ASD-3W allow consumers to add network connectivity to many A/V components, including A/V receivers, video display products and single speaker solutions*. Once

they provide instant access to existing home networks, letting users stream audio files, pictures and Internet radio stations through the connected devices. Both models include a remote control and feature a screen saver and a newly designed GUI for displaying meta-data, full-color album artwork and user photos. The GUI will support English, German, French and Spanish languages for both GUI text as well as meta-data from the iPod and other streaming media.

Additionally, both models are PlaysForSure (Audio) certified, DLNA CERTIFIED and will play both MP3 and non-protected AAC files. For additional networking flexibility, both units feature an Ethernet port, while the ASD-3W adds wireless capability as well. For added convenience, the ASD-3N and ASD-3W allow users the ability to connect an iPod via integrated dock and will recharge it while cradled.

Notably, both Network-Enabled A/V Clients connect to any Denon receiver released in 2007 or beyond using the dock control port and give users command and control of their iPod via the receiver’s remote control rather than the remote provided with the ASD-3N/3W, minimizing “remote control clutter.” Whether connected to a current Denon receiver or other product, audio and video signals are sent via analog audio output and S-Video to the respective inputs on a connected device in order to view the GUI and hear the audio.

Both the ASD-3N and ASD-3W will be available in August and September for SRPs of $179.99 and $229.99 (respectively).

DHT-FS3: An Easy Way to Add Surround Sound to Flat-Panel TV
Denon’s new DHT-FS3 Active Surround Sound System is an innovative and compact solution that dramatically enhances the enjoyment of flat-panel TV by using X-Space Surround technology. Ideal for consumers with limited space — or those who simply don’t want to deal with “speaker clutter.” The bar-shaped design of the DHT-FS3 Active Speaker lets users wall or shelf-mount the unit inconspicuously either underneath or above their flat-panel TV. The DHT-FS3 is elegantly styled in a gloss piano black finish to match many of today’s flat panel displays.

In addition to the sleek main bar speaker system, a super-slim subwoofer provides the deep bass response needed for great home theater audio. The system features a 5-channel built-in amplifier (25W/channel) as well as a 50W amplifier for the subwoofer.

For maximum flexibility and use with multiple types of flat-panel TVs, the system features 3 digital and 1 analog input for easy connection with DVD players, cable boxes or satellite receivers. In addition, users may easily connect the system to an iPod dock to expand their enjoyment of personal music.

For total user convenience, a digital display is built into the bar unit, “disappearing” behind the grill until a button on the unit or remote control is pressed. The DHT-FS3 comes complete with a remote control, cable connectors, “feet” for shelf placement as well as a wall-mounting bracket.

The DHT-FS3 is currently available for $1,199.
