Denon was founded in 1910 with an emphasis on gramophone players, "Den-on" formed as a merger of Denki Onkyo company of Japan (with "On" meaning 'sound' and "Kyo" meaning 'harmony).

After partnering with record company Columbia in 1927, Denon focused on production of world-class direct-drive turntables, phono cartridges, and tape recorders. Denon pioneered the development of moving coil phono cartridges, and established itself as a fixture in professional recording studios.


Denon, after launching a full-line of high end audio products in the mid 1970s, including its robust direct drive turntables famous for their enormous bases, elegantly sloping platters, and beautiful LED displays, introduced the first PCM digital recorder for studio use, defining its place as a pioneer in digital recording and the introduction of the Compact Disc.

Denon then went on to introduce many advanced CD playback devices for both home and professional use, as well as pioneer "ladder"-type digital-to-analog converter technology with its Super Linear Converter (SLC). Denon continued its technological leadership into the home theater markets by introducing some of the first receivers and preamplifier/processors to incorporate both AC-3 (later Dolby Digital) and THX processing. Today, Denon designs and manufactures a tremendously sophisticated line of industry-leading specialty audio, home theater, and custom installation products.
