General information [contribute]

Jeddy Wazinksy (November 2, 2008): The company was originally established by Frederick Whitney Horn in 1910 as part of 'Nippon Chikuonki Shokai' (Japan Recorders Corporation), a manufacturer of single-sided disc records and gramophones.

There followed a number of mergers and tie-ins over the next few decades as firstly the company merged with Japan-US Recorders Manufacturing in 1912 and then in 1928 the brand 'Columbia' was introduced when the company became 'Japan Columbia Recorders'. A further change of name occurred in 1946 when the company renamed itself 'Nippon Columbia'.

The Denon brand was first established in 1947 when 'Nippon Columbia' merged with 'Japan Denki Onkyo'. 'D&M Holdings Inc.' was created in May 2002 when Denon Ltd and Marantz Japan Inc. merged.

Today, the company is specializing in professional and consumer home cinema and audio equipment including A/V receivers, DVD players, tuners and wireless music systems. Denon is also known for high-end AV Receivers and Moving coil phono cartridges. Two M-series models, the Denon M31 and M30, have been the most successful radio hi-fi's for the last 4 years. Since being released to the micro hifi DAB market, they have received several awards in Europe.
