Denon DM38 DAB+ Mini System

From June, the successor to Denon's well reviewed and stupidly popular DM37 mini system, the DM38, will be available in store.

Denon DM 38

The main thing is that those who want full iPod control no longer need to buy the ASD11R iPod dock to accompany it - all functions are now available via the USB on the front of the unit. Power is still a decent 30wpc, and incorporates a single mono pre-output for adding a subwoofer. There are two analogue inputs, and a pair of analogue outputs for running to a recording device, or for an offboard headphone pre-amplifier.
