Denon HEOS 5 HS2 Wireless Speaker – – Great first multi room speaker

Gorgeous audio and the application is greater than expected. Connecting it to the community was a little bit far more elaborate than it desired to be but now which is done and overlooked. The bass is preposterous for a thing of this size: i’ve actually had way too turn it down.

The heos process a immediate competitor to sonos, the sector leader in multi-room. I did not order my heos seven or the 3’s that i have from amazon, but from one more reseller and this was simply because i needed to listen to the systems initially. Possessing expended about 6 months looking at testimonials and then finally executing a back again to back, with the same audio and exact same place, like for like against the sonos, i determined to acquire the heos. The sound was richer with additional element and good quality to it than the sonos, in my impression and the other users of my family and even the profits individual right away recognised it. We manufactured confident that the systems ended up equal and i presented the music resource. Acquiring now had the system for three months, i can only give this three stars. The audio is amazing and the top quality is terrific and i are unable to fault it. Setup was easy and only took minutes for each machine. Ease of use is not an situation and even my technophobe wife has gotten the cling of the software. Even so, the software on your cell phone is dire.

This is my 1st toe in the wireless hello-fi waters. I identified the heos incredibly effortless to join to my residence community. We have been streaming audio from a nas box within 5 minutes. Sound sensible, it’s a very little bass hefty for me and the equaliser operate in the app is of really limited use. The app is speedy and responsible on my apple iphone six and i’ve had no complications with misplaced/dropped connections as many others have knowledgeable. All i would say is that when browsing music servers, down by the artist, it just lists all tracks irrespective of album. I feel to have gotten spherical this by introducing the unc route to the server. It then proceeded to index the place and now i can search by artist and then album.

  • Great first multi room speaker
  • Superb sound a d flexibility
  • Great speakers, let down by appalling software

Bluetooth latency is also higher. This is a no go if you want to enjoy films og e. With an aux cable to one speaker it is ok. . But when you group two speakers you have the hold off once again. The audio hold off was unfortunately a offer breaker.

  1. This is my first toe in the wireless hi-fi waters. I found the heos very easy to connect to my home network. We were streaming music from a nas box within 5 minutes. Sound wise, it’s a little bass heavy for me and the equaliser function in the app is of very limited use. The app is fast and reliable on my iphone 6 and i’ve had no problems with lost/dropped connections as others have experienced. All i would say is that when browsing music servers, down through the artist, it just lists all tracks regardless of album. I seem to have gotten round this by adding the unc path to the server. It then proceeded to index the location and now i can browse by artist and then album.

    1. Stunning sound and the app is better than expected. Connecting it to the network was a bit more complex than it needed to be but now that’s done and forgotten. The bass is ridiculous for something of this size: i’ve actually had too turn it down.

    The heos system a direct competitor to sonos, the market leader in multi-room. I didn’t purchase my heos 7 or the 3’s that i have from amazon, but from another reseller and this was because i wanted to listen to the systems first. Having spent about 6 months reading reviews and then finally doing a back to back, with the same music and same room, like for like against the sonos, i decided to buy the heos. The sound was richer with more detail and quality to it than the sonos, in my opinion and the other members of my family and even the sales person immediately recognised it. We made sure that the systems were equivalent and i provided the music source. Having now had the system for 3 months, i can only give this 3 stars. The sound is amazing and the quality is great and i cannot fault it. Setup was easy and only took minutes per device. Ease of use is not an issue and even my technophobe wife has gotten the hang of the application. However, the application on your phone is dire.

      1. Bluetooth latency is too high. This is a no go if you want to watch videos og e. With an aux cable to one speaker it is ok. . But when you group two speakers you have the delay again. The audio delay was unfortunately a deal breaker.
