Denon wants to put the S in streaming—with its first networked audio line, dubbed the S-Series.
Two S products were announced today: the S-52 ($699) and the S-32 ($499). Both have Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), and both are compatible with the Rhapsody music service. If you don’t feel like flipping 13 bucks a month for Rhapsody (after the 30-day free trial), you can use the S’ wireless superpowers to tap into any network-attached storage device, Mac or PC.
Each S unit is also XM Satellie Radio-ready and includes an integrated iPod dock.
As far as formats, both devices have the ability to decode MP3 and WMA formats as well as AAC, WAV and those encoded in FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec).
Both products in the S-Series are now available. More pictures are available in the slideshow.
