An advanced sound solution, without all the gear and wires
There’s a lot to talk about with the Denon HEOS HomeCinema, so I’ll start with the reason you’re probably on this page — captivating TV and movie sound. Denon, known for their great A/V receivers, packed a home theater experience into an easy-to-use system that fits cleanly in your TV setup. The sound bar sits below your TV, and you can place the included wireless subwoofer anywhere there’s an AC outlet — you can even hide it in the back of the room.

The sound bar can be mounted to a wall or sit in front of your TV on a stand.
You’ll enjoy clear dialogue and robust effects from your shows, movies, sports, and video games. And music? Tunes will sound crisp and clear. Plus you get an entry into the Denon HEOS multi-room system, so you can play virtually any song, any time, in any room, and control it all wirelessly.
Simple connection for a serious sound boost
One wire is probably all you’ll need to connect the Denon HEOS HomeCinema to your TV. Most newer TVs include HDMI with Audio Return Channel (ARC), which means you won’t have to connect a separate cable for sound — just connect the sound bar with a single HDMI cable and you’re done. Don’t have an ARC-compatible TV? No problem. There are other connection options that will cover most TVs.
Once you’re hooked up, two soft dome tweeters work together with dual mid-woofers, all bi-amped, to deliver spacious sound that will fill your room. The sub adds powerful bass for explosive, realistic effects. Denon uses the same processing found in their high-end receivers to simulate a roomful of speakers in “Surround” mode. Or you can switch over to “Dialogue Enhance” and make sure you catch every important line in a talk-heavy drama.
For movie lovers who care about music…and vice versa
The HEOS HomeCinema lends power and depth to music too. You can switch to “Music” mode to get the best sound for tunes. When connected to your Wi-Fi network, the HomeCinema opens up a world of music streaming through the speaker’s stereo drivers and sub. Wireless setup is easy, thanks to the step-by-step instructions on the free HEOS app available for Apple® and Android™.
Music in every room
As good as the HomeCinema sounds on its own, what makes it truly special is how it works with other speakers in Denon’s HEOS multi-room music system. Listen to the same song throughout the house, or listen to different songs on other HEOS speakers.
Listen to your music or stream from online services
HEOS offers no shortage of ways to listen to music. The free app will let you play music stored on your smartphone or tablet and create your own playlists. You can also access free online radio stations via TuneIn radio. If you’re a Spotify®, TIDAL, SiriusXM, or Rhapsody subscriber, you’ll have access to their huge music libraries, too. Pandora Internet radio also offers lots of choices for both free users and subscribers. Stay tuned as HEOS will be adding other popular online music services as well.
