Denon Launching Three High-Res Wireless Home Speakers


Wednesday, December 11th, 2019 |

Japanese audio manufacturer Denon has announced a new series of high-fidelity wireless speakers for their Home line. The new line will feature three models, Home 350, 250 and 150, which have HEOS Built-in capability. The HEOS app allows users to control and configure their various speakers, including other Denon speakers, around a space.

Users can stream music on Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, TIDAL and more, while also being able to connect to computers, phones or networks via Wi-FI, Airplay 2 and Bluetooth.

“This new lineup of high-fidelity speakers from Denon are designed from the ground-up. Leveraging Denon’s expertise in Hi-Fi amplification, DSP engineering and sound master tuning, the new Denon Home delivers unrivaled precision and incredible bass response,” said Michael Greco, Senior Director of Global Brand Management at Sound United.

“Since Denon Home uses the latest HEOS platform, they are fully compatible with Denon AV receivers—the leading AVR brand in the world—as well as all HEOS built-in products. With high-resolution audio more accessible than ever before, it was important to support gapless playback of 192kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV, ALAC and DSD 2.8/5.6MHz files.”

The speakers break down in the following:

Denon 350:

Testimonials

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.


Erick Morillo

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!
