Denon’s award-winning wireless sound range HEOS is set to get both bigger and better with a new soundbar and subwoofer arriving in May.
Distributor Qualifi says that “The HEOS Bar delivers exceptional performance that effortlessly enhances the audio performance of a TV while also taking music to an entirely new level.”
Packing all the usual perks and features of a HEOS-brand product, it’s able to play music from your own collection, direct from a phone via Bluetooth or via streaming services like Spotify and Tidal.
Built to integrate in a multiroom setup, it features a three-channel design and leverages nine high-performance drivers in a 45-degree configuration to spread sound around the room.
Qualifi say “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 and well as the equally wire-free HEOS Subwoofer.
The subwoofer, meanwhile, “is designed to work in perfect harmony with the entire HEOS range, from wireless speakers to the new AV products and the HEOS Amp/HEOS Link, adds powerful, deep bass to any set-up – and of course, being HEOS, it does so wirelessly.”
Boasting a stylish matte black finish and slimlined design that can be set up vertically or horizontally, it leverages two custom-made 5-1/4inch drive units combine with Class D amplification to deliver “clean, room-shaking bass.
The HEOS Bar arrives at an RRP of $1,299 while the new HEOS Subwoofer is priced at $999. Both arrive in May.
