REVIEWS AND AWARDS - D-M40
Rarely we have heard thus a good sound from compact stereo.
"Denon has done it again - the D-M40DAB is a seriously impressive micro system for the money... It is difficult to be over complimentary about the D-M40 as a micro hi-fi system at this price; Denon has produced something even better than last year’s Award winner."

Radio Data System
Radio Data System for VHF/FM broadcasting. The developers aimed at making radio receivers very user-friendly. Listeners should be able to see the programme service name (PS) on an eight character alpha-numerical display and the transmitter frequency information, as displayed on non-RDS radios, is then only used in the background by an RDS radio. The tuner is able to choose the transmitter frequency, among a number of alternatives, that gives the best quality reception. Travel information with RDS is currently possible using the Travel Programme (TP) and Travel Announcement (TA) flags. Once a radio is tuned to a programme service broadcast within a network, using the RDS feature Enhanced Other Networks (EON), additional data about other programmes from the same broadcaster will be received. This enables the listener, according to their choice, to have the radio operating in an automatic switch-mode for travel information or a preferred Programme Type (PTY, e.g. News). Another feature of RDS is accurate Clock-Time, displaying the time/date when selected.
RDS tuners with Radiotext can receive short messages which might include information about the presenter, station or programme you are listening to. For example, BBC Radio 1's RadioTEXT usually gives information about the presenter and programme, whereas Classic FM gives information which includes a web address for the station. The information will scroll across the display on a home tuner.
- Compact Disc
A compressed audio format that is popular for downloading across the internet. Files may be recorded on CD-R or CD-RW media for playback in compatible DVD players, audio CD players, and CD-ROM drives. Files are usually named as "*.mp3". Sound quality varies as a function of the recording/encoding bit rate. For a high fidelity home audio system, its recommended to use MP3s encoded at no less than 256 kbps data rate. Anything less would mean too much compression was used at the cost of sound fidelity. See also WMA files compatibility with DVD and CD players.
WMA files compatibility with DVD and CD players.
Windows Media Audio (WMA) is a proprietary compressed audio file format developed by Microsoft. It was initially a competitor to the MP3 format, but with the introduction of Apple's iTunes Music Store, it has positioned itself as a competitor to the Advanced Audio Coding format used by Apple. It is part of the Windows Media framework. A WMA file is almost always encapsulated in an Advanced Systems Format (ASF) file. The resulting file may have the filename suffix "wma" or "asf" with the "wma" suffix being used only if the file is strictly audio. The ASF file format specifies how metadata about the file is to be encoded, akin to the ID3 tags used by MP3 files. Files in this format are mainly played using Windows Media Player, Winamp (with certain limitations, DSP plugin support and DirectSound output is disabled using the default WMA plugin) and many other alternative media players. The most current version of the format is Windows Media Audio 10 which includes specific codecs for lossless, multi-channel surround sound and voice encoding in addition to the main lossy codec. Both constant and variable bit rate encoding are supported. Denon DVD players can play CDR's or CDRW's with WMA and MP3 files burnt on them as long as they have been burnt using a slow speed, recommended x4 speed.
