Let's start with the sound, Denon's premier audio quality. Denon brings over eight years of development combined with over 100 years of experience as a leader in audio innovation to the design of HEOS by Denon. Here's why the new system's sound quality stands alone:

� Audiophile-level synchronization. The system is designed with new technology that makes for an incredible level of synchronization, a level even audiophiles can appreciate.

� State-Of-the-Art audio DSP optimization. Denon partnered with Waves Audio, the world's leading developer of professional audio digital signal processing (DSP) technologies. The Denon Multi-Room-Sound will use embedded MaxxAudio� by Waves, a sophisticated sound enhancement suite customized to provide top-of-the-line sound quality for an optimized listening experience.

� Superior acoustic design. Denon's audio expertise has evolved to meet the unique needs of today's connected music consumer.

Easy to Use
Open the box and HEOS by Denon comes to life with its simple, intuitive and well-designed whole home control via the Denon Controller app for iOS and Android. This makes it easy and convenient to set up and operate the players through your frequently used wireless devices. Working with any existing home Wi-Fi network, the players connect effortlessly to your home network.

The Wi-Fi connection is key to great playback and sound quality and Denon's dual-band Wi-Fi uses modern Wi-Fi networks to their fullest advantage. The system integrates dual band 802.11n Wi-Fi to provide long range and bandwidth, giving you the freedom and flexibility to place your HEOS by Denon Multi-Room-Wireless Sound products anywhere in your home. The Denon system avoids common sources of interference from single-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth devices, microwave ovens, baby monitors and cordless phones.

The pre-amp and amplifier products will allow for functionality of legacy audio products. The amps drive passive speaker systems and give you the ability to create additional zones of audio.
