Denon Launching Three High-Res Wireless Home Speakers
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:
The biggest and most expensive of the bunch, priced at $699. It comes with big sound with two dynamic ¾-inch soft dome tweeters, two robust 2-inch mid-bass drivers and two powerful 6½-inch woofers powered by a six-channel amplifier.
The 250 offers the same much of the same experience as the 350, but in a smaller speaker. It comes with two dynamic ¾-inch tweeters, two 4-inch mid-bass drivers, a 5¼-inch passive radiator for extended bass response and powered by a 4-channel amplifier. It is priced at $499.
The 150 is the most compact of the bunch and the cheapest at $249. It comes with a premium 1-inch soft dome tweeter and 3½-inch woofer.
Both come in black and white. The speaker line will be available in Q1 via Denon retailers. All three have two microphones for future voice assistant support. The mics are not activated at the moment until an update is done. Get more info on the company website.
