Any ideas when Denon will release a newer version ?

Denon D-M41DAB has been out 2 + years.

Should I buy or wait?

Hi I'm looking into buy this system after reading your review.
It is worthy to add a subwoofer to the system ? and which one would you guys recommend ?
Thank you !

So you believe they will not release a new version any time soon.

They usually do every couple of years.
I would also buy, if I were you. I did, to replace my classic D-M35DAB which I owned and may I say loved for close to 18 years. The new M41 adds a whole new sonic presence and dimension, matched with my award-winning Wharfedale 11.2 stand mounts and a 10" Sub, this little giant killer is a must to behold. You know what they say, you never know what the future M42 could bring to the mix or lose in that regard. Sometimes they add few bits but drop few in the process too. If you're after built-in WiFi (which isn't a guarantee they will finally include it in the M42) you could wait, but if you are after sound quality and performance - the M41 is it! Cheers.

Absolutely. You will get that extra sound dimension and deeper lows you just couldn't extort from those little speakers that come boxed in with the main unit. I would suggest a middle-of the road range of a good 8" Sub for smaller/tighter spaces and rooms and the 10" ifyou happen to listen to your M41 in a living or family room-sized environments. Hope this helps.

I have just returned to the UK and was looking to buy something like this but a lot of my music is on a hard drive, which I needed to reduce space (and price) whilst overseas. If I bought this, without the USB, I would have to find some other way of connecting a lot of my more recent music. I am thinking that I will have to look elsewhere. Pity.

Don't be too disappointed.
I had a go with a 32GB USB stick on the previous model.
Its limited display was far from ideal for navigating stored music.
Nice system otherwise, but with a HDD full of music, you'd be better off with something that better allows you to see and scroll through a collection.

Hello,

I am considering buying this amplifier to use in a small size room but I am wondering which pair of speakers I should use with it.

I read in your article that you advise to use the Denon SC-M41 with it but for nearly the same price I can have a bundle of the RCD-M41 with a pair of Dali Spektor 1 or Spektor 2.

I already have a Marantz PM6006 + Dali Zensor 3 in my living room and really enjoy it, that's why I am considering new pair of Dali for this new setup in a different room.

Also, Dali recommend to use at least a 40W amplifier to drive the Spektor 1. Do you think the 30W output of the RCD-M41 will be enough?

Thanks!

As you like your Dali's Ludovic, go with a Denon / Spektor bundle.
I doubt 30W will be too little for either in your small room, but it would seem sensible to get the slighter more sensitive Spektor 2 if you can.

Yes, it makes sense. I was already quite sure to go for the Spektor 2s, but I needed a second opinion before buying them.

Thank you Gray!

Just piggybacking here as I was about to buy a DM41 with Q Acoustics 3020i’s. Does anyone have any experience with this combo and does anyone know if this sounds like a good pairing? Thanks

Imagine that I owned the DM41 and 3020i and told you it was the perfect combination.
Then someone else told you that he'd heard both at a demo and was not at all impressed.
What would that tell you?
Only you can judge whether the pairing is good.
(The bottom line is that it's unlikely to actually be bad and if you've never heard alternatives, then you will be pleased with the sound).
When you hear better (there's always better) that's when your trouble starts......

Hello!

Is there any difference between this D-DM41DAB and D-DM41 besides DAB Tuner?

And what would you recommend D-DM41DAB/DM41 or newer (but lite version) D-T1?

Thanks!
