Denon DHT-FS5 Review

 

LCD and plasma technology have enabled TVs to get wider in inverse proportion to their thickness, which can make the audio side of the home-theater equation stick out like a sore thumb. Denon's $500 DHT-FS5 promises to deliver an authentic...

Attractive design ; powerful amplifier ; multiple inputs

Doesn't deliver a true surround-sound experience ; not enough bass response

It consumes much less space than a conventional A/V receiver, but it doesn't come close to delivering the same audio experience.

Denon DHT-FS5

 

Denon's DHT-FS5 is an unusually compact single speaker surround system with an unusually compact list price: just $500. That means it sells for less than half the asking price of its big brother, Denon's up market DHT-FS3 . Even so, the two units have...

Compact sound-bar speaker system; one analog and three digital inputs; can be used without a subwoofer; bass lovers will appreciate the subwoofer output; easy setup; on-wall, on, or under TV mounting options.

Dearth of HDMI or other video connectivity means your TV will need to handle video switching duties; sounds better with movie or TV soundtracks than on music.

Denon's compact and affordable DHT-FS5 soundbar is a worthwhile improvement over standard TV speakers.

Denon DHT-FS5 X-Space Soundbar

Denon DHT-FS5 review

 

Denon's compact and affordable DHT-FS5 sound bar is a worthwhile improvement on standard TV speakers. While CD sound quality is only acceptable for background listening, TV and film audio is rendered well

Compact design ; Can be used without a subwoofer ; Bass lovers will appreciate the subwoofer output ; Easy set-up ; On-wall, on- and under-TV mounting options

Dearth of HDMI or other video connectivity means your TV will need to handle video switching duties ; Handles film and TV duties better than music

CD sound, with or without the subwoofer, was only acceptable for background listening. In stereo or music modes, the sound felt cramped and small. The DHT-FS5's sound was more or less on par with a table radio

Denon DHT FS5 Sound Bar

 

The Denon DHT FS5 Sound Bar is the ultimate in surround sound technology. It fills the room with a sound without the need of multiple sound boxes placed separately in a room. This speaker system can be mounted anywhere in the room. It could be placed...

As long as you’re not expecting the DHT-FS3 to match a full on home cinema system, you won’t be disappointed. It provides bigger, brassier and more involving audio than any TV speakers around - but it’s not perfect at simulating surround sound. Denon...
