Denon has announced a new suite of high-fidelity wireless multiroom speakers, Denon Home. Comprised of three models — Denon Home 350, 250, and 150 — the new high-resolution speakers give users access to their music thanks to HEOS Built-in capability. Using the HEOS app, Denon Home can be connected and expanded throughout the home to other HEOS Built-in products, including Denon’s lineup of AVRs, soundbars, and Hi-Fi equipment. Denon Home will be available for purchase in early 2020. Featuring a capacity touch controls and three or six Quick Selects, consumers can easily select their favorite stations with a single press.
Listeners can stream their favorite songs from Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, TIDAL, and more, as well as high-resolution files stored on USB drives, phones, or networks via Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2, or Bluetooth. Users can also group Denon Home speakers with other AirPlay 2 devices and HEOS Built-in products, like AV receivers, Hi-Fi systems, soundbars, and speakers. Play different music in each room, or group devices together to stream the same music throughout the home.
With network support and a USB port, the Denon Home 350 allows for gapless playback of high-resolution audio including 192 kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV, ALAC, and DSD 2.8/5.6 MHz. Natural sound and bass response is provided by two 3/4-inch soft dome tweeters, two 2-inch mid-bass drivers, and two 6 1/2-inch woofers powered by a 6-channel amplifier. For added convenience, the Denon Home 350 features six proximity controlled Quick Select buttons allowing instant recall of favorite internet radio stations. Using the HEOS app, users can group two Denon Home 350 speakers together as a left and right stereo pair, or as rear surrounds in a 5.1 system with the Denon DHT-S716H soundbar and DSW-1H subwoofer. The Denon Home 350 has an MSRP of $699 USD.
The Denon Home 250 offers the same features as the larger Denon Home 350 model from a more compact chassis. The Denon Home 250 offers a Hi-Fi experience from two 3/4-inch tweeters, two 4-inch mid-bass drivers, a 5 1/4-inch passive radiator for extended bass response and powered by a 4-channel amplifier. The three Quick Select buttons deliver fast access to favorite internet radio stations. The Denon Home 250 has an MSRP of $499 USD.

All three models of Denon Home speakers will come equipped with two microphones for future voice assistant support. These microphones will be disabled and not functional until a future software update is available. At that time, all Denon Home users can enable the microphone if they wish via the HEOS application.
