Denon has announced it is expanding its sound bar lineup with two premium options, the DHT-S516H and DHT-S716H. These sound bars combine 4K HDMI inputs with ARC support, DSP processing, amplification, and hi-res capabilities with the form factor of a sound bar.
Building on the features found in the HEOS Bar and HEOS HomeCinema HS2 sound bars, the latest Denon sound bars both share several sound quality and connectivity improvements. Featuring Class-D amplification across a variety of performance-tuned drivers, the DHT-S716H and DHT-S516H ship with the latest version of HEOS Built-in music streaming and voice control (Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker required). The DHT-S716H pairs with the Denon DSW-1H (sold separately), while the DHT-S516H ships with a wireless subwoofer. Both sound bars support DSD (2.8, 5.6 MHz), FLAC, WAV, ALAC (192/24), MP3, WMA, and AAC (USB/Network).
Both the DHT-S516H and DHT-S716H allow users to experience wireless, whole-home audio with HEOS Built-in. The DHT-S516 also allows greater compatibility with AirPlay 2. HEOS Built-in also enables access to music from several major streaming services, including Amazon Music, Spotify Premium and free, Pandora, TIDAL, TuneIn Internet Radio, and others.
Both sound bars also support major voice assistant platforms, including Google, Amazon, and Josh.ai. Advanced HDMI 2.0b inputs allow for features like Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), which improves the gaming experience when in use. As an added benefit, the DHT-S716H can leverage HEOS speakers, including the HEOS 1, HEOS 3, and HEOS 5 as rear channels for immersive surround sound.
The DHT-S516H ($599), DHT-S716H ($899), and DSW-1H ($599) is currently available via authorized Denon retailers.
