Features

The 3.0-channel unit is able to raise the sound quality of even TVs with a high-quality audio system to a new level, significantly increasing the degree of involvement of viewers in what is happening on the screen. And in addition, it can become part of the multi-room HEOS audio system with convenient control via a mobile application and provide access to various online services, as well as collections of music files on network devices. For accurate multi-channel audio processing, the Denon HEOS Bar is equipped with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders.

Design and build

The Denon HEOS Bar soundbar has a three-channel configuration with separate front stereo and center speakers. Each channel has two oval woofers and a tweeter connected to separate amplifiers to get the most saturated sound. This provides a more accurate linking of dialogs to the screen, as well as their articulated and natural reproduction. The speaker system also provides a virtual surround sound mode, however, if desired, you can connect HEOS wireless speakers as rear speakers and a HEOS Sub subwoofer to it. This will allow you to create a real 5.1 home theater system, very convenient for placement in a living space and not taking up much space.
