Denon HEOS 7 HS2 Wireless Speaker -, I am not an incentivised reviewer – and I love the HEOS multi room system we have built up

I purchased the heos procedure for my house – i am not an incentivised reviewer – and i appreciate the heos multi room method we have designed up by means of our household. Put in a when looking into and came down to a shortlist of sonos (the large established player in the marketplace) and denon’s heos method. I came to the same summary as quite a few other reviewers/folks following a visit to a retail outlet to ‘try right before i buy’ and assess the two techniques facet by aspect. The heos sounded significantly much better – and that was even ahead of actively playing a high definition audio file (which the sonos systems can’t enjoy) and the point that i can bluetooth to the heos units way too which has already verified beneficial on celebration (the sonos depends solely on a wifi design and style link – no bluetooth) – but the sonos application is superior (which is echoed by a lot of the critiques you will see on the net)my summary – i wished the multi-place system for the audio seem replica, not the app.And of course the app can be current indefinitely for absolutely free, so i have no doubt that a massive enterprise like denon will capture up, if not supersede sonos – denon are a significantly bigger founded brand name – and my speakers will also audio much better too :)so i acquired an audio program with my ears – which is how we take in the solution benefitsthat claimed i have had no problems with the heos application – the preliminary set up is tremendous basic, introducing new speakers to the system is equally tremendous straightforward, working day-to-working day operation is super basic and no problems by any means. The only hurdle i have encountered was the sometimes clunky why the application groups speakers together – it can be hit and pass up occasionally – but you only really do this just about every now and then so isn’t really a problem so-to-discuss. Wonderful sounding speakers, that fill the place – the larger sized heos 7 and property cinema with subwoofer thoroughly fill the room and immerse you in wealthy audio that does not look feasible from this sort of modest methods – the heos one is good in our kitchen (will not have the very low conclusion punch of the bigger heos methods – but that mentioned the spouse is regularly inform me and the kids to switch it downwe adore the process and very recommend it.

The high quality is excellent, even with out the significant res audio structure. Bass is quite flexible (can be modified in between ‘neighbor-friendly’ and ‘shake the house’). Help for streaming expert services is excellent and would not disappear like numerous of its competing products. Will never change a encompass seem process but damn if it isn’t shut. Really worth every penny and superior sounding than the new sonos participate in 5. One insignificant complaint: the ‘microphone setup’ is worthless. It tries to use your phone’s headphone output to pay attention for a ‘key’ but i attempted for ten minutes and it never ever worked. Ended up just connecting it through ethernet to the router to configure and then switching to wifi which worked in seconds.

I almost introduced a sonos but, luckily, i was introduced to the heos in advance of i expended my hard earned hard cash. The sonos are unable to touch this for audio quality, which is what is crucial to me in a speaker. The bass is punchy with no becoming overbearing, and the general seem is effectively balanced. The app by itself could be improved, but it does almost everything it wants to do very well plenty of.

Comments from buyers

“Phenomenal sound in a convenient size, Quality Wifi Speaker system from Denon., Best wireless speakers”

Genuinely good merchandise – quite brief shipping from supplier. I researched a fair little bit before purchasing this objects, this and the sonos five were being on the shortlist, when i saw this speaker stated at £120 discount off typical rrp this won. Matches beutifully on our radiator cover in our pretty substantial loved ones room – kitchen / residing / orangaery space, just below our wall mounted tv, although weighty and pretty substantial it is also fairly compact for the massive seem it can produce. Beefy bass and warm rhythmic audio with atmospheric vocals, i have toned down the bass to 3 and enhanced the treble to six making use of the eq options on the app as this seems most effective to me. The sonos five seems a bit a lot more punchy imo with a tighter bass, whilst the denon is a further marginally more booming bass line. No challenges with set up and connecting to the network working with the equipped fast start guideline. Did have some challenges connecting by means of bluetooth but this was corrected with a recnet firmware update on 20/eleven/2017 from denon. Application not the most intuitive but rather straightforward after you get the dangle of it – we have amazon new music account and new app update also on twenty/11/2017 will allow you to research – artists, music, playlists now. Not tried hi res audi as no tidal account but regular res appears terrific anyhow. Searching to add extra from this assortment to my bed room and analyze – maybe a heos five and heos 1 following on the would like listing – actually like the idea of a smart speaker kind heos – hope they increase a google dwelling max style speaker to their vary or an alexa outfitted speaker soon.

Just moved to a flat where by all my separates hifi wouldn’t genuinely go so determined to sell it and after much thought i went for the heos 7. So a lot of approaches to play songs, usb, wifi, bluetooth and aux enter. Have to say this is damn close to the audio i experienced with my separates, onkyo a9010, yamaha cdn301, q acoustics 3020, hundreds of element, crystal crystal clear with wonderful bass that can be altered with the application. Feels like a high-quality product or service which it is.Sonos engage in 5 appears very good but so does this with heaps far more inputs.

Took a small time to established up but very well worthy of the hold out.

The guide to the cell phone is a soreness in a wireless globe but once accomplished you never need to have againpowerful, crystal distinct audio at any quantity. The audio very easily fills a several roomsa will have to to get started the selection with and then addpackaging was exceptional.

Quick to set up, application is simple to use. I also have a heos one and its straightforward to swap involving the two.

Good sound excellent, incredibly loud and places sonos in the shade with having blue tooth and hi-def sound quality.

    Really nice item – very quick delivery from supplier. I researched a fair bit before buying this items, this and the sonos 5 were on the shortlist, when i saw this speaker listed at £120 discount off normal rrp this won. Fits beutifully on our radiator cover in our quite large family room – kitchen / living / orangaery space, just below our wall mounted tv, whilst weighty and quite substantial it is also quite compact for the big sound it can produce. Beefy bass and warm rhythmic sound with atmospheric vocals, i have toned down the bass to 3 and increased the treble to 6 using the eq settings on the app as this sounds best to me. The sonos 5 sounds a bit more punchy imo with a tighter bass, whilst the denon is a deeper slightly more booming bass line. No problems with setup and connecting to the network using the supplied quick start guide. Did have some problems connecting via bluetooth but this was corrected with a recnet firmware update on 20/11/2017 from denon. App not the most intuitive but fairly straightforward once you get the hang of it – we have amazon music account and new app update also on 20/11/2017 allows you to search – artists, songs, playlists now. Not tried hi res audi as no tidal account but normal res sounds great anyhow. Looking to add more from this range to my bedroom and study – perhaps a heos 5 and heos 1 next on the wish list – really like the idea of a smart speaker form heos – hope they add a google home max type speaker to their range or an alexa equipped speaker soon.

    Just moved to a flat where all my separates hifi wouldn’t really go so decided to sell it and after much thought i went for the heos 7. So many ways to play music, usb, wifi, bluetooth and aux input. Have to say this is damn close to the sound i had with my separates, onkyo a9010, yamaha cdn301, q acoustics 3020, loads of detail, crystal clear with amazing bass that can be adjusted with the app. Feels like a quality product which it is.Sonos play 5 sounds good but so does this with lots more inputs.

    The quality is exceptional, even without the high res audio format. Bass is very flexible (can be adjusted between “neighbor-friendly” and “shake the house”). Support for streaming services is excellent and doesn’t disappear like many of its competing devices. Won’t replace a surround sound system but damn if it isn’t close. Worth every penny and better sounding than the new sonos play 5. One minor complaint: the “microphone setup” is useless. It tries to use your phone’s headphone output to listen for a “key” but i tried for 10 minutes and it never worked. Ended up just connecting it via ethernet to the router to configure and then switching to wifi which worked in seconds.
