Denon HEOS HomeCinema review

 

After a decade in the industry Sonos is still the king of multiroom music systems, but companies like Denon are finally putting forth products that try to dethrone it. The HEOS HomeCinema sound bar makes a valiant effort, but ultimately falls short.

The Denon HEOS HomeCinema offers decent home-theater sound and excellent music replay. The device includes more connections than most including an HDMI, Wi-Fi and digital optical, and can even distribute TV audio throughout the house. The number of...

No Bluetooth available out of the box. The app can be convoluted, which is especially frustrating given the lack of a dedicated remote control. Setup requires the use of a cable between your phone and the unit.

The Denon HEOS HomeCinema offers discreet looks and a dynamic performance, but it could be easier to use.

Denon HEOS HomeCinema soundbar review

 

This soundbar's sonic performance and streaming features elevate it well beyond its price tag, but setting it up can be a bear.

Superb, cinema-like dynamics ; Part of the Denon HEOS multi-room audio ecosystem ; Amazon Alexa integration "coming soon"

Annoyingly cumbersome setup process ; No remote control included (you must rely on the HEOS app) ; No visual feedback unless you're using HEOS app

Once you can get past Denon’s convoluted setup, its HEOS HomeCinema soundbar shines. This speaker is completely comfortable with both movies and music, bringing songs and soundtracks to life with energy that no TV speaker will ever be able to match.

Denon HEOS HomeCinema

 

The HEOS HomeCinema soundbar is the latest addition to Denon's growing family of multiroom audio products and a rival to the Sonos Playbar.

Denon HEOS HomeCinema Soundbar Review

 

Denon enter the soundbar market again with their HEOS HomeCinema soundbar and wireless subwoofer but does it live up to the name?

Great sound quality ; Well integrated sub ; Useful features ; Solidly built ; Attractive design ; Effective remote app

No separate remote control ; Limited HDMI inputs ; No 4K/HDCP2.2 Support

If you're in the market for a soundbar then Denon's HEOS HomeCinema should definitely be on your short list. It's attractively designed and solidly constructed without being flashy or drawing attention to itself. The classic look of the black soundbar...

HEOS HomeCinema soundbar REVIEW

 

Big movie sound, effective TV sound, no duffer at music and with all the multiroom abilities of HEOS, the HomeCinema is quite the little giant.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Best sound for the money, beats SONOS and cheaper

 

I did a lot of research and listening to different systems and ultimately, I really enjoyed the BOSE Soundtouch with Bass module, but for $1300 it was not in consideration. So it was down to the SONOS and the Denon, I went back twice to Best Buy...

Good for watching movies, great for listening to music in multi-zones

No self contained WI-FI system like SONOS
