HEOS Products by Denon
Denon Electronics recently made significant upgrades to its HEOS wireless multi-room sound system. Introduced by Denon in 2014, the HEOS series continues to evolve to meet consumer demand. Effective immediately, the HEOS family of speakers, pre-amps, and amps will be adding Bluetooth accessibility - giving consumers the choice of using either WiFi networks or Bluetooth to play music through their HEOS system. HEOS is now also compatible with high-resolution audio files. Users can listen to uncompressed WAV, ALAC, and FLAC music files up to 24-bit/192-kHz over network or USB. Soon users will also be able to listen to DSD and AIFF audio tracks.
The new platform includes an ARM A9 1.25 GHz Processor with 512 MB of flash memory combined with 256 MB of RAM.
“We are pleased to introduce this new upgrade to our HEOS platform that brings high resolution audio playback, built in Bluetooth, and a significant increase in processing power that will intensify performance and support new features that we can’t wait to bring to the HEOS family,” said Brendon Stead, SVP product development at Denon. “Consumers are embracing our HEOS line of products, and we are looking forward to making the platform even better with new software features.”
Denon initially introduced the series with three speakers and a HEOS Wi-Fi extender. Since that time, the HEOS line has announced additional product line extensions including an indoor/outdoor speaker, soundbar with subwoofer, pre-amp, amp, and whole home multi-zone amplifier to the series. Now HEOS brings Denon-quality audio to any—or all—rooms in the home by connecting devices via Bluetooth or an existing WiFi network through the HEOS app, available for iOS, Android and Fire devices.
