Denon DHT-FS3

 

After you've heard a few virtual surround speakers, you realize there's not a whole lot of surround sound coming out of these things. Yes, the better ones project sound beyond the width of the speaker and well into the room, but only if you're sitting...

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.

Denon DHT-FS3 Sound Bar with Subwoofer Reviewed

 

When you think Denon you likely don't think speakers but you can start thinking soundbars. This $1,199, B&O-looking soundbar has some very sleek lines as well as a thin subwoofer that will deliver the power than some of the smaller soundbars can't...

Jimmy Choo has nothing on this sound bar. It is sex-on-a-stick good-looking, which is saying something for a speaker that mounts on a wall near an HDTV ; The DHT-FS3 doesn't block an HDTV when positioned on the same table or equipment rack, as you will...

There is no decoding for Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio, so when running the best audio from a Blu-ray player into this sound bar, you are going to be a little behind the curve in terms of the highest-resolution HD audio codecs ; The DHT-FS3 has...

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...

Looks good and Sounds Amazing!

 

Sounds really good. You need to work with the settings a little to get a good output. That's common with all these type of products when they don't have the auto setup. The best part is that it delivers sound to the full room like a much bigger ......

For what it is supposed to do, it is great.

 

I bought this on ********** for $350. It is worth every penny of that. I would not spend the current (10JAN10) prices on this system. For that kind of money (700 to 1100 bucks) one can get a decent component system with true 5.1 or 7.1 sound. I am...

None, other than it is not worth current advertised prices

Denon DHT-FS3 review

 

Denon's first foray into the increasingly-crowded soundbar arena, the X-Space DHT-FS3, is at least a stylish entrant, with a piano black finish and curved main speaker unit that is considerably more slender than rival models we've seen from Philips and...
