Denon DN-700R Overview

  • 1Description

The Denon Professional DN-700R Network SD and USB Recorder is a 1U rack mountable recorder and audio playback device designed for installed sound applications such as houses of worship, education, and more. The unit can record to both SD/SDHC cards and USB media either one at a time for longer recording times or simultaneously to both mediums for backup. The unit features extensive DLNA/UPnp networking capabilities such as automatic or timed FTP file archiving of recorded audio with scheduled Network Timer Protocol, as well as full Web setup and control using IP. The built-in Web remote enables full control of the recorder using a mobile browser.

The front panel of the recorder features an OLED display for showing information such as time, sample rate, and file name. A set of rubberized buttons control basic functions such as record, stop, pause, play, forward, back, as well as menu control and file management functions such as move, copy, combine, divide, and undo. A shift button changes these buttons to functions such as dimming the display, marking files, record monitoring, switching to frame mode, and adjusting pitch. A rotary knob button controls recording level, recording balance, and navigates the menu settings. The front of the unit has two SD/SDHC card slots for inserting recording media with ejection buttons, as well as a USB female type A port for plugging in USB media such as thumb drives and external USB hard drives. A second USB female type A port allows you to plug in a USB QWERTY keyboard for entering file information while recording. The unit also includes a 1/4" headphone out and headphone level control knob for monitoring while recording or listening to recorded tracks.

For I/O, the back of the unit features left and right balanced analog 3-pin XLR female inputs, left and right unbalanced analog RCA inputs, a balanced digital 3-pin XLR AES/EBU input, an unbalanced digital coaxial SPDIF input, left and right balanced analog 3-pin XLR male outputs, left and right unbalanced analog RCA outputs, a balanced digital 3-pin XLR AES/EBU output, and an unbalanced coaxial SPDIF output. For remote control, the unit features both an RS-232C and a 25-pin parallel port. The included rack ears can be removed for tabletop operation.

    Denon DN-700R Reviews

    DN-700R Network SD and USB Recorder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear Sound, Great Features This system is connected to a Church sound system and wired into the network. It archives the service recordings directly to an FTP server. Initially the system was not working properly (failed to archive, noise when using phantom power). I contacted Denon and they responded within 24 hours with the latest firmware upgrade (not posted on their website at the time). I'm still fully testing the system but so far the quality is good, and functionality is as one would expect with the benefit of a fantastic web interface. Only thing I'd change is I wish the main toggle buttons would glow dim so you could see which button whats record, play, stop etc. in low light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the business! We record all our shows and are building up an archive for live albums so we wanted the best sound quality. We were told to check out dn-700r for recording to USB or sound card and being flexibile in different venue setups. CDs were too short and usually we don't want to have to stop it during the show. Plus it plays through the PA so we don't need another piece of gear for that. Sweet! This thing is pro gear and we swear by it. You can use a laptop to program in scheduled recording sessions so you don't have to worry that night. Denonpro has all the setup instructions, faqs and firmware updates. More music more music!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what was previously missing I wrote several manufacturers requesting the development of a device like this between 2010 and 2013 and in 2014 Denon gave me what I wanted!! This device is perfect for my needs at a university school of music. I have four in operation and two as backups so I can program all of our (600+) concerts per year while also logging on remotely to start stop recordings when needed (like when a faculty member calls me sunday afternoon when I'm at a baseball game with my kids and says "hey, I forgot to tell you, we have a rehearsal today in an hour. is there anyway we can record it?". The answer, with this device, is yeah no problem". Thanks Denon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21st Century Cassette Deck I really like this unit (although I prefer the simpler, no network - but sadly, discontinued - DN-500R - or, better still, the DN-300R with the addition of a Rec/Pause button). At any rate - I use this to record music and voice in the same way that I use to use a 1/8" Audio Cassette Deck in Prehistoric Times...and it works also sounds great (very hard to distinguish from analog recordings). I am really impressed at the sound quality Denon gets out of it's products. It's good for button pushing lovers too - with lots of presets, editing functions, networking junk, and "event" timers (although I pass almost all of that up). In my opinion this unit is miles beyond the competition.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Digital inputs are not bit transparent Overall the functionality and price of this unit is excellent, however I discovered a problem for my particular usage doing archival transfers of digital material. It may be possible to fix it with a firmware update, Denon support has been less than responsive. The digital inputs are not bit transparent. That is, when recording a digital signal, the recorder changes the signal rather than recording it exactly bit for bit as is. If set to record a 16 bit WAV file, the lowest bit is redithered with relatively low quality (not randomized) dither. When recording in 24 bit, it does something else entirely, altering the signal. Arguably this change is not audible, but there is really no reason to be messing around when recording a digital signal. Other devices I work with and have tested can record from a digital source without alteration. After weeks of regular follow ups, Denon customer support has not even been able to respond to the issue, pretty much giving me I haven't heard anything from the development team yet, so I guess it just is what it is? I will be exploring other options for our needs and not purchasing any more of these, which is unfortunate, because they are otherwise excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We bought this more for recording than playback. In that role, this Denon DN-700R replaces a CD recorder we previously used to archive event audio. Now we are able to record much longer presentations without interruption, but much more importantly we can remotely schedule events (via browser) to record in advance, both on a recurring basis and on a calendar basis. This allows us to bypass volunteers and forgetful operators who may forget to start a recording. Another extremely helpful feature is being able to automatically sweep recordings off the unit's memory cards and onto a network server, allowing us to retrieve the audio files remotely at our leisure without concern for running out of media storage space. Setup took a bit of time because there are so many options available, it makes sense to think through how you want to configure the device. I strongly recommend updating the firmware immediately, because at first we had problems connecting via the network until this was accomplished.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great We archive everything we record automaticly via ftp with this device. We no longer need to buy CD/DVD and to share them, everything is now done on the network.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I am using the Amphe Dante product to pull audio off of a Dante network to this unit. This unit works great and reliably. The ease of use, scheduling of automatic records, multiple media recording options, etc., are just great. This thing has tons of features. They did a nice job providing menus on the front of the unit with which to navigate everything. After having browsed through everything, I do everything through their network connection. My opinion: with a network connection, there is no need for access to anything through the menus on the front of the unit. Nonetheless, they did a great job. This provides me exactly what I need a fraction of the price of a JoeCo unit. Having said all this, for Dante specific use, you're going to want to use the TASCAM SS-R250N unit with the Dante expansion card. It hooks directly into a Dante network, and it supports greater than 32GB SD cards. So, for Dante stuff, look at the TASCAM unit; otherwise, this unit is great.
