The new system builds upon the success of the first iteration, with added 4K UHD capabilities, high-resolution audio, and more.
Denon HEOS HomeCinema HS2
Designed from the ground up for true high-fidelity sound, the HEOS HomeCinema HS2 features bi-amplified drivers with advanced DSP processing. There is also a wireless subwoofer bundled in with the pack.
The soundbar comes equipped with dual 2-inch x 5-inch precision drivers that reproduce the upper bass and midrange audio. Additionally, a pair of 20mm dome tweeters handle the high frequency range.
An app-based installation assistant makes set up a breeze. Moreover, the HEOS HS2 system can be effortlessly and flexibly positioned within any room.
This new system will play nice with a range of files including FLAC, ALAC, AIFF and DSD. Meanwhile, the addition of AirPlay and Bluetooth makes listening to your favourite tracks easier than ever.
The HS2 sports a slimmer design that its predecessor and features premium quality metal feet and built-in power supply. This all adds up to a sophisticated aesthetic that will compliment your TV and home cinema set-up.
The unit boasts HDMI input and output (with ARC TV audio return channel) as well as Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS decoders.
Further advancements now means the HS2 is equipped to support 4K UHD video, and with the free HEOS App control and TV remote learning function, the set-up and operation promises to be straightforward.
Easily connect to an existing Wi-Fi network to bring Denon-quality audio to any — or all — rooms with the free HEOS app (available for both iOS, Android and Kindle Fire).
The addition of Alexa will enable you to control the HS2 using vocal commands. All you will have to do is enable the HEOS Home Entertainment skill and then speak your commands via any Amazon Echo device. The Amazon Alexa feature becomes available in the UK in early Summer 2018 via a firmware update.
