Denon S-102 and S-302

AV equipment maker Denon finished its week today with a pair of all-in-one, 2.1-channel home theaters uniquely connected to digital devices. In addition to playing DVDs and music CDs, the pictured S-302 includes both Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking; any device that fits the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) protocol can share JPEG photos as well as music in AAC, FLAC, MP3, WAV, and WMA formats. The system also includes a USB port and a bundled iPod dock that plays music from the Apple device or generic storage with basic control.

The 104-watt system incorporates an AM/FM tuner as well as both component and HDMI inputs for upscaling DVD movie content; the latter supports upscaling to the full 1080p resolution of better HDTVs, Denon says. It arrives in Japan by late August for an estimated price of $2,139.

A simpler model, the S-102, is also enroute; the lower power, 90-watt system drops wireless networking as well as the iPod dock, though the latter remains an option for listeners looking to extend their systems later. It retains the radio tuner and full HDMI support of the S-302 but will ship slightly later, arriving in Japan for about $1,079 in mid-September. Releases for both systems outside of the southeast Asian country are possible but haven't been confirmed. [via Impress]
