Denon DHT-FS3 review: Denon DHT-FS3


Denon DHT-FS3

Elegant and compact single-speaker plus subwoofer virtual surround system; accommodates two analog, three digital audio sources; optional iPod dock; headphone jack with Dolby Headphone processing; wall-mounting brackets included.

Expensive; dearth of HDMI or other video connectivity means your TV will need to handle video switching duties; setup may take some tweaking for optimal sound.

While it's a bit lean on features, Denon's compact DHT-FS3 delivers big room-filling sound.

This unit is gorgeous, sleek, and doesn't block the TV when sitting in front of it. While you could get better sound with a true 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, for the money, you get a fairly believable surround sound experience with the Denon...

Denon DHT-FS3


While it's a bit lean on features, Denon's compact DHT-FS3 home theatre system delivers big, room-filling sound.

Elegant and compact ; Two analog, three digital audio ; Optional iPod dock ; Dolby Headphone processing ; Wall-mount included

Expensive ; No video-switching ; Needs tweaking for optimal sound

Overall, the Denon DHT-FS3 delivers relatively impressive sound quality for a single-speaker system. We just wish the company had ratcheted up the feature set given the growing list of competing devices that cost less and deliver more (built-in DVD...
