Large horizontal footprint ; Angular styling won’t suit everyone ; Will suit 50-inch-plus TVs only

Denon HEOS AVR

 

Denon HEOS AVR review: a fresh and very impressive spin on AV receivers, with wireless surround sound and multiroom audio skills

Slim, elegant design ; Smooth, detailed sound ; Excellent app and polished multiroom performance ; Clutter-free wireless rears and sub

Limited scale and muscle ; No auto-calibration ; No front display or onscreen menus

Denon’s elegant, lifestyle-focused AV receiver boasts wireless HEOS streaming as its trump card, backed up by an entertaining, if not world-beating, performance.
