Japanese Hi Fi maker, Denon, is set to launch a series of limited edition products to celebrate their 100 year anniversary. Among those products are a two-channel SACD/CD player, 2×80-watt integrated amp, a direct-drive turntable, and a 9.2-channel AV receiver, and new high end universal Blu-ray player.
Denon, whose products are distributed in Australia by Audio Products Australia, claim that the new products, which are mostly two-channel products, were designed “to capture the essence of Denon and its ongoing mission,” said Bob Weissburg, sales and marketing president for Denon parent D&M Holdings. The products showcase the brand’s “design integrity engineering heritage” and the company’s century-old legacy of innovation and craftsmanship,” company literature added.
Denon has been building home audio electronics longer than any other Japan-based company. Founded in Oct 1910, as the Japan Recorders Corporation, by American Frederick WhitneyHorn, the company’s first home audio product was Japan’s first gramophone.
The anniversary collection goes on sale worldwide, including in Australia, according to Denon officials.
