Network connectivity is one of those buzz phrases in the audio/video circles these days, especially with the glut of music and video consumers are compiling on their PCs. Denon is embracing the connectivity with the introduction of two advanced Network-Enabled A/V Clients, models ASD-3N and ASD-3W, both with iPod command and control.
The ASD-3N and ASD-3W allow you to connect to your home networks to many A/V components, including receivers, video display products and single speaker solutions, the company says. You can stream audio files, pictures and Internet radio stations through the connected devices, and both models have a remote control, a screen saver and a newly designed GUI for displaying meta-data, full-color album artwork and user photos.
Both units are PlaysForSure certified, DLNA certified and will play MP3 and non-protected AAC files; and for iPod lovers, they can connect an iPod through the integrated dock and recharge it. Plus, you can control your iPod through either your receiver’s remote control or the one that comes with the devices.
The ASD-3N and ASD-3W will be available in August and September for SRPs of $179 and $229, respectively. Go to www.denon.com for more info.
