Since 1910, Denon has perhaps made more technological innovations than any other audio brand. Still, progress for the sake of progress is far from the Denon way.
Underlying this legacy of first-to-market technologies are three pillars that continue to drive the brand forward.
Music has become increasingly digitized, bringing the need for premium audio technology into sharper focus. That is why Denon is constantly developing new products that not only meet the needs of the latest formats, but consistently exceed them.
First and foremost, everyone at Denon is a music lover (many are indeed musicians). Whether they're a Sound Master, an engineer or a customer service representative, they will – without exception – be deeply passionate about how things sound. We've not strayed from the principles that made us famous 110 years ago.
Denon has cemented its reputation as a visionary and a tastemaker, not only with our customers, but with our partners and competitors. They are just as eager for our next generation of products, and reassuringly they support our ambition: the belief that better sound leads to a happier life.
Every day at Denon's R&D facilities, new technologies are imagined as our engineers seek new ways to deliver immersive experiences, spectacular sound, and performance that never wavers.
And because of its commitment to ongoing research, Denon is very often first to market. Relentless enthusiasm and exhaustive testing are required to launch any new innovation, and that is the very reason Denon never lets you down.
If what you seek is a combination of cutting-edge technology and sound quality you can trust, there really is no other brand.
