    very sexy looking, wonder how is sounds...
  3. Prophet293
    I can't wait for this to come out!!!!
  4. shiorisekine Contributor
    I wonder if the USB input A will only work for ipod and not android, might be a bit of a draw back for me. But good luck denon cant wait to hear one.
  5. Prophet293
    I hope some day Denon releases an all-in-one HD portable music player too.
  6. shiorisekine Contributor
    I know they have the music software app but I have never used it but I have seen the UI and I like it so as long as they utilized that in the DAP I would more than likely buy it.
  7. Prophet293
    I would like a Denon portable high res player that plays every format under the sun + this portable DAC/amp built-in as an all-in-one solution. They can make it big and bulky, wouldn't mind one bit, oh and it also needs a massive storage like 128GB or something.
  8. Prophet293
    It's almost October and there's no news of this coming out?
  9. Necrophantasia
    Well the planned release date according to Amazon Japan is October 11th. So soon!
