Denon Introduces Soundbar with DTS Virtual:X

The DHT-S216 is a full-range soundbar with plug-and-play operation.

Denon has announced its first full-range soundbar with DTS Virtual:X, the DHT-S216 ($249). The soundbar leverages psychoacoustic algorithms developed by DTS to realistically simulate a multi-channel soundtrack played on a home theater surround sound system. The DHT-S216 is easily connected to any TV and media player via 4K UHD HDMI with Audio Return Channel or Optical/Auxiliary inputs.

Denon Soundbar

At only 2.35-inches tall, the Denon DHT-S216 has been tuned by Denon sound masters to deliver high playback quality using two 3-inch down-firing subwoofers, two 1 3/4 x 3 1/2-inch dual mid-range drivers, and two 1-inch tweeters. New to the Denon soundbar lineup, the DHT-S216 features Pure Mode, which eliminates surround processing and removes any adjusted characteristics associated with Movie, Music, or Night mode for a more precise and open sound. Listeners can also pair their smartphone or tablet with the soundbar via Bluetooth to stream their favorite music with ease.

The wall-mountable Denon DHT-S216 can be set up in minutes. Compatible with all HD and 4K TVs, use the provided HDMI cable to send audio from Smart TVs and other connected sources via the HDMI Audio Return Channel (1 in/1 out with ARC) supporting 4K/60 Hz and HDCP 2.2. Once connected via HDMI ARC, the soundbar is controlled with a TV remote. If HDMI ARC isn’t available, the soundbar offers an optical input and can be wirelessly paired via Bluetooth to stream music, podcasts, and other audio content.

The DHT-S216 ($249) is currently available via authorized Denon retailers.
