Colombia Records and Nippon Columbia[edit]

Regarding the comment in the article: For many years is was a brand name of Nippon-Columbia, the Japanese arm of Columbia Records.

I don't believe there has been a relationship between Nippon-Columbia and Columbia Records since the outbreak of WWII in 1941. Though Nippon-Columbia retained the name, the war ended any other relationship between the companies. The statement above seems to imply Nippon-Columbia is a subsidiary or division of Columbia Records. I do not believe this is the case. I think the author might want to substantiate that.

I don't know any of the history surrounding this.. but it looks like Denon is owned by D&M Holdings, which is owned by RHJ International [1]. RHJI shows that it also owns Columbia Music Entertainment, Inc. (Columbia Japan) [2][3]. I think that RHJI is a Japanese branch of Ripplewood Holdings, --ChrisRuvolo (t) 20:00, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Comments moved from article[edit]

I own one piece of DENON equipment - DN-C550R. Unless I can resolve a 6 month old, day one problem there will never be a second piece on my site.

Perhaps it has to do with the Serial Copy Management System? Don't buy products that support Digital rights management. --ChrisRuvolo (t) 13:27, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
Looks like DN-C550R has a user-operable toggle to disamble SCMS. --ChrisRuvolo (t) 13:30, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

History[edit]

The history section of the article appears to have copied information from the website with only slight adjustments in the wording. I've deleted it as a copyvio. - Mgm|(talk) 11:16, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Denon logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Denon logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Pseudoscientific crap[edit]

The $500 cable is a scam. This article is written as if this is a proper company, not a fraudulent gang of audio snake-oil salesmen. See http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/06/22/amazon-reader-review.html for example. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.68.228.211 (talk) 00:41, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

1982 Industry leader in the introduction of consumer-use CD players[edit]

What does this mean? Was Denon the first to introduce those players, or was it the leader in sales? If it is a claim to technological superiority in those devices, then such a statement will need some authoritative affirmation of such a claim. An advertising claim will fail the NPOV standard.

If it was first to establish a 'consumer CD player', then what distinguishes such a player from a 'commercial model'? Ease of use? That would be subjective. A price cut? Also subjective.

And for how long? Many firms were entering the business.Pbrower2a (talk) 19:33, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
