Denon HEOS HomeCinema
A sub & sound bar combo that works with the HEOS multi-room audio system
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
The Denon HEOS HomeCinema is a sound bar and sub combo that not only gives you an instant home theater sound solution, but it also connects to your home network and works like every other Denon HEOS source. Once connected, you can use the HEOS app to play music over your HEOS multi-room audio system.
Denon HEOS HomeCinema
Denon's Heos HomeCinema gives you dramatic sound from your Movies, TV, music, and games. Denon uses the same sound processor found in their premium A/V receivers to create a rich soundscape that not only connects to your TV, but to your wireless network, so the sound bar and wireless sub can join your Denon Heos wireless sound system.
You can place the wireless sub anywhere in the room, and it syncs with the sound bar using digital time alignment. That means that no matter where you put it, it'll sound like it's up front. We like that feature, because there isn't always a great spot for a sub, especially if you'd prefer it was out of sight.
Because this is a Heos soundbar, your HomeCinema becomes another Heos zone when you play music from the Heos app. It connects to your home network either by WiFi or an Ethernet cable, so you can stream music to it from your device. It works just like other Heos gear, except for one difference, the HomeCinema is not compatible with Bluetooth. But given that the HomeCinema is meant to stay in one place, and is connected to your home network just like your devices are, we didn't find we missed the Bluetooth too much.
We love Denon gear at Crutchfield because it offers great sound quality at a reasonable price. The HomeCinema reaffirms that feeling, because it sounds wonderful and integrates smoothly into the Heos world.
TV's keep getting thinner, so you need a way to get better sound from them. The Denon Heos HomeCinema gives you big sound in a sleek package, and doubles as another player in your Heos system. It's great if you want both better TV sound and be able to play your digital music wirelessly. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
