RE: Denon CEOL RCD N8 Issues and problems

Further to my post regarding wireless connection from Denon CEOL and router, turns out it was not a problem with the router afterall.  The CEOL was setup to only receive security signal at  WEP strength  otherwise it kept dropping out.  The router was set at WPA2K+ . Since there was a firmware upgrade on the denon, it can now continuously stream without interruption yet the security level on the router is still set at wpa2k + . Hope this helps anyone with wireless issues with the CEOL.

RE: Denon CEOL RCD N8 Issues and problems

I bought an N7 Ceol in November 2010.  It failed three times (iPod dock not functioning, then, finally, it died completely, not switching on).


Denon replaced it with an N8 (with my retaining the original speakers) in late 2012.  The iPod dock was faulty again within three weeks.  The N8 has just perished also - won't switch on.


In fairness to Denon, they are repairing it without expense, even though it was purchased more than three years ago.


However, I have NO optimism that this repair will any longer-lasting than the first three.


I can't imagine what they're doing making such faulty equipment.  I'm just so pleased I didn't buy any of their, "high-end", AV stuff.

Bonjour,   J'ai récupéré ma chaîne Hifi Denon ceol n8 la semaine dernière et j'avais signalé un problème notamment concernant la connexion via Wifi et Airplay. Vos techniciens m'ont dit qu'ils avaient changé la carte Wifi. Cependant le problème subsiste. J'ai réussi à faire fonctionner l'airplay quand je l'ai récupéré mais une fois éteinte et rallumée, voici que ça ne fonctionne plus.   J'ai pour messages : Digital In "Signal Unlock" ou "No network connection" ou "(Empty)" ou "P.Accès non trouvé". (cf photos ci-jointes)   Pourriez-vous m'expliquer d'où vient le problème s'il vous plait ? J'ai vraiment envie de pouvoir utiliser ma chaîne hifi sans soucis...

Denon CEOL and Airplay/Remote App

It really is all about the router/modem.

I had airplay disappearance and non recognition of Denon ios app using standard BT router/modem

Substituting a TP-Link N600 router modem solved all problems instantly and made a visible difference in internet and downloading speeds as well.

I wonder what the big ISPs are doing. Most would assume that the supplied modems/routers are state of the art but this may not be the case and the customisation of other manufacturers standard products are causing these sort of problems. Manufacturers like Denon then cop the blame!

Perhaps What Hifi should investigate this!
