Denon Announces New HEOS Soundbar and Subwoofer

By |


Denon-HEOS-soundbar.jpgFollowing up on the company's recent introduction of its first HEOS-branded AV receiver, Denon has now announced the addition of its first HEOS subwoofer, as well as a new HEOS soundbar. The HEOS BAR ($899) is a three-channel soundbar that supports the addition of wireless HEOS surrounds and the new wireless HEOS subwoofer to create a 5.1-channel setup. The soundbar has four HDMI 2.0a inputs with Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding, as well as Bluetooth. The new HEOS Subwoofer ($599) combines dual 5.25-inch woofers and a Class D amplifier in a cabinet that can be set up vertically or horizontally. Both products will be available in April. 

From Denon
Denon introduces the HEOS wireless soundbar and HEOS subwoofer as part of the popular HEOS wireless multi-room sound system. The two stylishly designed new products offer electrifying home theater and sensational music playback, as well as an innovative feature set. The HEOS Bar and the HEOS Subwoofer are anticipated to be available in April at Denon retailers.

HEOS BAR ($899)
The HEOS Bar delivers exceptional performance that effortlessly enhances the audio performance of a TV while also taking music to an entirely new level. With HEOS technology built-in, this model not only plays music from the users own library, but also direct from a phone via Bluetooth, and via favorite streaming services from the world's leading cloud sources like Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Rhapsody, iHeart Radio, TIDAL, SiriusXM, Soundcloud and Amazon Music.

The HEOS Bar is not just a superb TV soundbar, with state of the art signal processing, amplification and drivers: it's also a complete music-streaming solution, able to integrate into a HEOS multi-room system. It's a three-channel design, suitable for screens over 50 inches and able to be used on a shelf or wall-mounted, and uses nine high-performance drivers in a 45-degree configuration to spread sound around the room.

The same Denon DSP technology used in Denon's award-winning AVRs is also included in the soundbar to create impressive virtual surround sound. This unique processing decodes surround sound audio and uses processing algorithms to give the impression of 5.1 channel audio without surround speakers being installed.

The Bar can be also integrated with a pair of HEOS speakers, as well as the equally wire-free HEOS Subwoofer.

Four 4K-compatible HDMI 2.0a inputs make it suitable for use with multi-source ultra high definition AV systems (for example with a Blu-ray player, set-top box and computer), while Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio processing means it will sound as good as those 4K pictures look.

HEOS music streaming is also built-in, allowing you to listen to your own music library all the way up to 'beyond CD' DSD, streaming services including Spotify and Tidal, music or direct from a phone or tablet via Bluetooth, and Internet radio, while the HEOS Bar can also be combined with other HEOS speakers around the home to give full multi-room audio.

All this is achieved while still retaining simple setup and operation, including the bar's ability to learn commands from users TV remote, and the intuitive HEOS App for full system control.

The new HEOS Subwoofer is designed to work in perfect harmony with the entire HEOS range, from wireless speakers to the new AV products. It also works with the HEOS Amp/HEOS Link, adding powerful, deep bass to any setup - and being HEOS, it does so wirelessly. The HEOS Subwoofer is beautifully crafted with a stylish matte black finish in a slimline package that can be used vertically or horizontally, allowing it to perfectly fit the personal specification of your room.

Two custom-made 5.25-inch (13.5 cm) drive units combine with sophisticated Class D amplification to deliver clean, room-shaking bass, while the slimline design can be used vertically or horizontally to suit a room. In fact it's so slim, users may be able to slip it under a couch. Advanced digital signal processing provides optimal default sound settings, and there are also user-selectable settings available for more confident users - all accessed by the HEOS app that makes setup simple. System integration features in the app provide a factory-optimized option for each configuration, as well as advanced settings for users that want more control in their unique listening environment.

Now users can take music and movies to the next level with the HEOS Bar and HEOS Subwoofer ... the ultimate audio pairing for movie sound and music.
