It’s the ideal audio set-up transferring Denon’s music experience to today’s busy consumer, allowing them to enjoy their favourite cloud music services to the fullest.”

The Denon Difference: What makes HEOS amaze your world


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. Here’s why the new system’s sound quality stands alone:

• Audiophile-level synchronization. The system was 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. HEOS 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 the HEOS speaker 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. Truly within minutes you can begin enjoying the sound of your favorite music filling the room—no Ethernet cable required.

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 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.

If you need to overcome difficult Wi-Fi conditions created by poor Wi-Fi range or have a need to create a network for the first time, Denon offers a Range Extender. The HEOS Extend differs in that it strengthens the entire home network for all Wi-Fi devices.

Content and Playback

Once set up, sit back and enjoy your experience with access to the world’s leading online music services. With USB and NAS playback, HEOS allows you to also stream your music collections stored on a hard drive, thumb drive or NAS drive. Play content locally, to another Denon wireless speaker, or to all Denon wireless speakers with playback times that don’t miss a beat when it comes to responsiveness.

HEOS by Denon will follow up the initial product launch introduction with pre-amp/amp expansion products. The pre-amp products allow for functionality of legacy audio products. The amps drive passive speaker systems and give you the ability to create outdoor zones. These are expected to be available in the months following the initial release and into 2015, and beyond. Products will be available at select Denon dealers only.
