Denon’s HEOS HomeCinema sound bar helps to boost TV sound
* Amplifies TV sound and works as a HEOS speaker
* Wireless subwoofer included
* Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS
* USB input for mass storage
Want to boost your flat screen TV’s sound? Then investing in a soundbar is a pretty good idea. New from Denon is a wireless soundbar and subwoofer system called the HEOS HomeCinema.
Expected to be available in July for £599, the HEOS HomeCinema upgrades the sound of any flat screen TV as well as working as a powerful speaker set for the HEOS wireless music system.
As well as boasting a wireless subwoofer for low frequency sounds, the HEOS HomeCinema’s wireless soundbar features dual 2-inch by 5-inch precision drivers that reproduce the upper bass and midrange audio. There are also dual 20mm dome tweeters that handle the high frequency range, with response extending to 20 kHz.
The unit features an HDMI input and output (with TV audio return channel) as well as Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS decoders. Also on board is Denon’s Virtual Surround processing, which, apparently, uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to simulate the surround sound of a multi-channel home theatre speaker system.
The matching wireless HEOS HomeCinema subwoofer features dual 5¼-inch woofers that work in tandem to deliver deep bass with the level controllable via the HEOS app. The compact subwoofer can be placed horizontally or vertically for the widest range of installation options. It can also be connected to an existing Wi-Fi network to bring audio to rooms with the HEOS app (available for both iOS, Android and Kindle Fire).
In addition to the HEOS HomeCinema, the HEOS by Denon product line includes four wireless multi-zone music players: HEOS 1 (£199) and HEOS 1 Go Pack (£79), HEOS 3 (£249), HEOS 5 (£349), and HEOS 7 (£499). Also part of the series is a Wi-Fi range extender HEOS Extend (£119) as well as the HEOS LINK (£299) and HEOS AMP (£399).
