    Denon DN-700C reviews

    DN-700C Network CD / Media Player is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Denon does it again - great idea, badly let down by details As a broadcast studio user of numerous Denon CD decks from DN615, 630, 635, 640... I just don't get how Denon can repeatedly come up with great basic designs but let them down totally by blind spots that are a nightmare for professional users. I bought these to replace a nearly new set of DN-C640s that were a disaster for a prefessional studio (reasons: they take 50s to boot up and 13s to load a CD, mostly fail to read CD-Rs, and often stop dead mid-track, even on factory-pressed CDs, and they also have an unpleasant blocky display). What a let down. On the plus side, and the reason we bought them, the deck now loads CD-Rs, they have a much faster reboot and disc load times, and a crisper display. BUT they routinely hang with a CD stuck inside. This is a nightmare of less experienced ops or at times of pressure, and requires a full power off recycle of the machine (not just pressing the power button on-and-off - it is a software switch and hangs). The End Monitor function has been forgotten. In reusing the same basic chassis as the DN700R network recorders, Denon apparently ran out of buttons when it came to allocating one for END MON. Sure you can set up End Monitor function in the settings menu, but just how do you activate it? And finally, Denon's usual blind spot in count-down timing. I don't know any professional user who has a significant need for count-up timing. All we are interested in is how long there is to run on the track. And yet Denon makes the count up time large and clear, with the countdown time tiny and not visible at all if you're standing up. It's better than he original C640 release where they forgot it altogether, but at least with a software update the 640 can show the countdown time big. I haven't found any way on the 700C to switch it so that the countdown is on the big display and the count up is small. And what's with the huge Index number - how many people use index marks on CDs? Is it really enough to justify making the index number so large that users under pressure easily confuse it with the track number? I don't know why I fall for it every time - thinking that this Denon unit looks good and of course they'll have learnt the lessons from the last one got it right this time. Big time disappointment! These quirks would be just minor annoyances for domestic use, but for on-air or public events they just aren't up to professional reliability or usability standards. Don't they do any real-world usability testing, rather than just banging a few review units out to folks who won't notice the shortcomings in a quick benchtest?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work with NAS I really wanted to like the DN700C. It has a nice solid build and decent features, but this device is not ready for prime time. Its network access speeds are painfully slow, and it absolutely refused to communicate with a DLNA qualified NAS, no matter what file sharing protocol was enabled on the NAS. This could be one heck of a good product, but doesn't really live up to its potential. Returned to B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my team This audio player is crucial in my rack. We've got a growing team, and depending on who's running the night different people have their own preferences for devices to keep the music going. Denon's the best for this and the 700C gets two thumbs up from us. We've got network streaming and use the apps so on a big night I don't have to be tied to the desk the whole time to make adjustments.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cautionary notes I do not own this machine, but I bought the last of its predecessors (DN-C640) at B & H last spring. Before buying this machine, you should read my review of the (discontinued) DN-C640. I don't know for sure, but the problems I encountered with that machine may still be present on this one. Just for your information.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slot loads are not reliable We bought 6 DNC620 units - all heve had mechinism problems. I wouldn't take one if it was free. Didn't think a CD player could sound better than others but these do sound great.
