Denon HEOS Bar review


A powerful and well-connected Playbar challenger

Impresses without subwoofer ; Wireless rears optional ; 4K-compatible

HEOS Bar Review: As close to perfection as a soundbar can get?


Denon HEOS Bar review: an all-singing, all-dancing soundbar that can handle movies, music and multiroom audio. Your move, Sonos.

Plenty of connections ; Nice design ; Excellent sound ; Easy to use

Not the last word in effects steering ; Could do with a little more bass depth

Excellent soundbar for movies and music – and it does multiroom audio too.

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.

Detailed and full-bodied sound ; Portable functionality ; Robust build ; Wide range of streaming services

No hi-res music support ; No Bluetooth as standard ; Unusual setup procedure ; A few operational niggles
