Denon has announced the N11 DAB in its CEOL series of audio systems. The network-focused audio system is similar to the CEOL N10, but it also has dab and dab + support.
For example, the CEOL N11 DAB allows users to stream music from a mobile phone, a computer or NAS, via WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet or USB. The system should provide easy access to audio services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal. In addition to support for AM and FM radio, the system can also handle digital DAB and DAB + radio.
Control can be done via voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Siri via Airplay 2 and the Google Assistant, or via the HEOS app or remote control. In addition, an illuminated touch-sensitive control panel is present on top. The information about the audio playback shows the N11 DAB on its OLED panel.
At the back of the device there are two more optical inputs and these have an input sensor for automatic switch-on when the TV is on. There is also a CD player, which can also handle discs with MP3 and WMA files. Speakers with support for Denon’s HEOS technology are easy to connect and the company itself suggests combining its SC-N10 speakers with 12 cm woofer and 3 cm tweeters.
The CEOL N11 DAB will be available in August for 529 euros and the optional speakers SC-N10 should then be available for 99 euros.
