Denon DHT-S514 Home Theater Soundbar Speaker System


We've seen some fine audio products from Denon; unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

Includes copious cables, including an IR blaster ; Minimalist remote looks nice on the table ; Adjustable feet gives you flexibility in placement

Generally poor audio quality all around ; Cryptic remote and status lights ; No subwoofer control via remote

Denon is one of the best names in audio, but this sound bar is not one of its better speakers.

Denon DHT-S514 review


Denon's first foray into the exceedingly popular sound bar category may have come a little late, but perhaps it was worth the wait. On its surface, the DHT-S514 ($600), is an exercise in simplicity. Like its rather dry name, the sound bar shows little...

Powerful, accurate sound signature ; Detailed upper register ; Full, musical bass ; Slim, minimalist design

No visual display/weak interface ; Midrange muddy at times

Those looking for a sound bar with power, detail, and dynamic chops should consider the DHT-S514 a top choice.

Denon DHT-S514


Bring big, beefy sound into your living room with Denon's soundbar and sub

Big weighty sound adds drama and scale ; Solid construction ; Good connections and features

Dialogue could be clearer ; Some rivals offer a smoother, subtler listen

It’s not perfect, but Denon’s soundbar and sub deliver a big, weighty sound, backed up by decent connections, handy features and simple operation.

Denon DHT-S514 review


Good audio with a powerful subwoofer, but dialogue and higher frequencies can get a little lost

The Denon DHT-S514 is a good all-round soundbar and its powerful subwoofer certainly makes it stand out from other combo systems. It’s not without its flaws, though, and we think it's a little expensive. Some cheaper soundbars, such as the Pioneer...

Denon DHT-S514 sound bar and wireless subwoofer review


TV's are getting thinner but one thing that's suffering is the sound quality but Denon's new DHT-S514 can dramatically improve the audio experience.

The Denon DHT-S514 sound bar is an excellent addition to your flatscreen TV that will bring the audio quality to a level that will truly enhance your viewing experience.
