No, thriu is right. Denon headphones are made by Fostex (which makes basically all Japanese branded full-size headphones except STAX) and Denon recievers are made by Sherwood.

Denon OEMs alot of their products.
There's a lot of OEMing in electronics. audio equipment isn't excluded from that.
OEMing is different from rebranding.

OEMing is a product that is unique but is made by company A on behalf of company B with company B paying an X Amount to have their label on it

e.g. The Denon D2000 is OEM'ed by Fostex

A rebrand is the same product made by company A but labelled something else with cosmetic changes

e.g. the Alienware Ozma 5 is exactly the same as the Ultrasone HFI-550.

Does it mean that are bad products? far from it. e.g. All Corsair PSU's are OEM'ed.

i've heard denon's mid range receivers before, they sound about as good as onkyo and yamaha in that range. i'm not saying they're bad, i'm saying true hifi equipment sounds much better. i'd literally take my old NAD receiver over pretty much any denon receiver today, then again i'm not using my receiver for blu ray's, mostly music.

i'm going to build a quad 504 amp soon, cept it will be a 5 channel amp and i will run pre outs on that through my current NAD until i decide to upgrade at any point, the quad amp will probably stay with me longer than any other piece of equipment, and that quad amp will amplify speakers better than ANY denon product, who disagrees with that statement?

Thing is we aren't and weren't talking about their receivers.


We were talking about their headphones which have gained critial acclaim for being very good.

I don't know about the higher end receivers, but the mid range Denon receivers tend to be a bit more on the video quality then the audio quality side.
