Read the Pioneer review and you see this...

"The Pioneer X-P01 is worlds apart from smaller traditional micro systems like the Denon D-M39 DAB., our 2012 System Product of the Year. You might expect that for a £200 difference, but the Pioneer represents a sizeable jump in sound quality"

Depends on what speakers you are intending to use. I've not heard the Pioneer but the Denon is excellent. Don't forget to check out options from Onkyo and Marantz as well.

You might want to take reviews like that with a pinch of salt, as new products always seem to be leaps and bounds ahead of last years darlings.

'Worlds apart' suggests to me that either the DM39 is quite poor or that the Pioneer holds its own in the mid range hifi category. Neither are particularly likely.

If you are going to spend nearer the £550 mark, then also consider the Marantz CR603 and some of the TEAC range.

I'm sure whatever product you choose, you are unlikely to find a duffer.

I would go for the Pioneer X-P01. The denon is nice but the pioneer is a separates system so will sound better IMO.

Well I would rather have everything included in the system than search and match other parts like speakers.

I also don't want to spend much more than that and would like everything in one box so to speak.

Try the Denon D-M39.................you might like it. The Denon Ceol is also an option but that's more $.

Pioneer X-P01 DAB Watt is bigger,

Denon D-M39DAB only 2x 30 w, Which I think too small.

But also look at Pioneer
AGAINSTLimited features that cater to more traditional needs[/list]
There are no bells and whistles like wireless streaming and Bluetooth, although we suspect that this could be available on the in-progress network player unit. If you want to plug in your TV, Blu-ray player and a games console, this is not the system for you.

I hope denon and Onkyo release new version with bigger watt and also more features and improve the sound quality
