Much more than just a soundbar, the HEOS HomeCinema is part of the complete HEOS multi-room system, giving you sound all around your home

HEOS sound for your TV

Packing in stereo soft dome tweeters, Kevlar-coned woofers and a 4-channel, Class-D amplifier, the HEOS HomeCinema sounds superb. Whether you're being pinned to your seat by an all-action movie or enjoying the subtler sounds of music, the HEOS is able to cope with it all. What's more, exclusive Virtual Surround processing delivers an immersive sound experience without the need for rear speakers.

Wireless subwoofer for added drama
With a wireless subwoofer at the ready the HEOS HomeCinema is never short of welly. For explosive scenes or dynamic music the sub drives the sound along, delivering a deep, rich bass response that's powerful enough to make it feel like you're 'there'. For even deeper bass, Dynamic Bass Boast emphasises the bass still further and is ideal for use at lower volumes when the audio can lose some impact.

Dolby Digital and DTS decoding
Featuring Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS decoding, the HomeCinema is fully equipped for most movie soundtracks. Working in conjunction with a powerful 400MHz, 32-bit processor, the surround sound tracks are skilfully blended for an accurate yet spacious sound form just a single soundbar.

Wireless sound around your home
All HEOS (by Denon) music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. Prefer a wired connection? Then you can make use of the Ethernet socket that's standard on all HEOS speaker systems.

Effortless control from your smartphone or tablet
Once you've set up the HEOS systems, controlling them is simple with the free HEOS app. This user-friendly app uses three main tabs that feature at all times - Rooms, Music and Now Playing. Rooms allows individual control of the music being played in a particular room. The Music tab selects the streaming music service or stored music either on your device or a remote device connected via the DLNA network. This means you should be able to access pretty much all the digitally stored music available in your home. Now playing gives you artist, title and track timer information plus lets you control the master volume and also view the music queue.

Endlessly compatible
A great benefit of choosing the HEOS system is its class-leading compatibility. In terms of music streaming services, it's compatible with Spotify Connect, Rhapsody, Pandora, TuneIn and other services offering DRM-free tracks. Supported music files include MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV, making it compatible with just about all stored music libraries.

Flexible connections including HDMI
When it comes to connecting up your TV, HEOS has got every option covered. For the best quality sound and vision use HDMI. The HDMI socket also has ARC (Audio Return Channel) meaning just one cable carries the source's picture to the TV and the TV's sound back again. If you'd prefer a different connection, both optical and coaxial digital inputs are also standard. If your TV doesn't have any of these you still may be in luck with the analogue input. This accepts a signal from your TV's headphone output.

Superb sound from your TV and seamless multi-room sound - the HEOS HomeCinema is the complete entertainer.

HEOS HOMECINEMA is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Software/app needs improving Great sound and equal if not better than Sonos. What is the killer is the wireless sub woofer included with soundbar. £300 Heos v £1200 for Sonos. Downside is linking Heos 1 or other matching Heos speakers for use as additional TV speakers. That part of the app is currently in beta and delay an issue. Also need to buy bluetooth usb package (only available with Heos 1 battery though!) to add that functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect integration First of all thanks to Liam in Bromley, who opened early to let me switch out a faulty unit. This seems to be pretty rare and Denon support were quick to respond and fault find. As others have noted the sound is excellent, the app not so. However, the simple volume control through HDMI means I am down to one remote for everything TV. Setup must be followed carefully and its not very explicit, the installation instructions should point you to their youtube video guides which are great and well worth checking out before plugging everything in. My only complaint could be lack of integration with Z-wave for SmarttThings control, but Alexa is coming, so this will be the bridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value Was great value at the pre-increase price. Quality of sound as good as sonos at lower price but loses out to sonos on ease of use/connectivity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound! So impressed with this sound bar and sub unit. Crystal clear, full off subtle bass. Clever bit of kit and great value at £299!
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely tone and clarity. This is a great soundbar. After extensive testing of the various choices, including close rivals such as the Sonos system, I genuinely believe this comes out on top. It has a great balance between clarity, tone, volume, and (especially now at this reduced price point) value. Although the design is not bad in any way, there are more elegantly designed and sleeker units out there, such as the Cambridge Audio TVB2. I don't mind not having Bluetooth, as loss of quality from compression on speakers like this will only annoy you. However, something like Airplay support would be much appreciated; although there are work-arounds such as using an Airport Express or Apple TV utilising the soundbar's optical in port (for Apple users), it's a worthwhile effort to make as you can then stream easily from your iOS/Mac products. I find the HEOS app a bit of a nuisance and there lack of support for Apple Music now slightly ridiculous. Ultimately, the pros (mainly of sound) outweigh the cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bit of kit Really enjoying the upgrade in sound and functionality this system offers. Seems very well made as you would expect from denon. A steal at this price.
Date published: 2017-02-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to return it and swap This soundbar is not user friendly regardless of the reviews, it Just wouldn't pair up with the subwoofer and because it didn't have a remote there was too much messing around with whatever Android device you'd paired up with and menu within a menu, just to adjust things like bass and treble
Date published: 2017-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product at an excellent price Bought this to replace my Sony soundbar and wireless sub to improve the sound quality,. Connection and set up was reasonably straightforward, however only possible with smart phone or tablet, (no remote). Sound quality is great but not sure comparable to any surround sound system. Great feature to be able to control all devices with your tv remote with IR link. Well worth the money at Richer Sounds, however not sure I would pay the RRP of £599.
