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

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.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.
