The Denon difference
As one of the world’s oldest and most respected audio companies, Denon have a track record that’s hard to beat. Take a listen to this soundbar and you’ll hear why. Featuring two, bi-amplified woofers and two tweeters, the DHT-S516H delivers smooth, spacious sound that’s a huge upgrade on your TV’s speakers.
Dialogue also sounds far more natural than with most TV speakers, thanks to Denon Dialogue Enhancer mode. There are also three listening modes. Choose between Movie, Night or Music modes for the ideal sonic balance with films, late night viewing and music.
Powerful bass from dedicated subwoofer
Helping you to truly feel like you’re at the movies, the Denon DHT-S516H is supplied with a separate subwoofer. Featuring a bass reflex port, this subwoofer is both compact and powerful. For easy positioning, the link between soundbar and sub is wireless.
High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering an intense movie experience, the Denon DHT-S516H is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. It supports a wide range of Hi-Res format files including DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALAC and WAV. It even supports gapless playback for music free from glitches.
Voice control via Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices
For the simplest operation, Denon has ensured the DHT-S516H is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices. Simply download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app and then just ask Alexa or the Google Assistant to perform functions such as volume and source selection. Using the Apple Home App, Siri voice control from your Apple iOS device brings added functionality over AirPlay 2 – including grouping devices.

HEOS multi-room 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. With HEOS already built-in, the DHT-S516H is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.
Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kenco from Quality product Just bought a Sony A90J 55 inch, although the sound is very good and you could do without a sound bar I had previously used one with our last tv so I was missing the depth and detail. Bought this Denon DHT-S516 and its a lot better than my last sound bar, well made, very smart looking and when you play music it sounds really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Archieboy from Great sound! I have been wanting a sound bar for a while now, so I popped into RicherSounds, as I was passing, I asked for something in my price range and they came up trumps with the Denon, the sound is amazing, even the other half was impressed, now that’s hard lol…….

Rated 5 out of 5 by Notforagoldpig69 from Denon soundbar supreme! It’s brilliant sound for a one speaker delivery. Not quite plug and play, but online instructions very good. It’s wide at approx 100cm, but I think that helps delivery around the room. Sub woofer adds to the quality, but the best thing is the voice enhancer and simple to use app from phone. Not sure why people want remotes when phone app can do it all. You can also hack straight in and swap to iTunes if you wish and then back to film by re-selecting source. I have older tv but optical cable works fine. Really happy, great bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JHOW from Great Sound Amazing bass. Works seamlessly with the HEOS app. Love that it has a “Dialogue Enhancer“ and that you can put it on “ Night Mode” which lessons the base so not to annoy neighbours. They were also very helpful in store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Atters from Brilliant Denon quality I bought this recently to use not just as a TV soundbar, but also to replace my long cherished Hi Fi system, because I now listen to far more music on streaming services than on CD's. Music sound quality was my prime driver and the Denon sounds natural, detailed and immersive. Just wonderful. It also looks great and of course sounds superb as a soundbar for movies and TV. I've seen some comments about the lack of a remote, but who needs yet another one and I think the phone app works just fine and you can use your TV remote for volume. It is an absolute doddle to set up for TV and music streaming. At the Richer Sounds price this is unbelievable value for a high quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trebor_blue from Great sound quality I bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace a Sony soundbar for my Sony TV. Was looking at the Denon and Sony, spoke to my local Richer Sounds branch (Reading) and after discussing the differences, decided on the Denon. Excellent service delivered the next day, also came with free 6 year Richer Sounds warranty. Very easy to set up, including downloading of latest software. Linked with my Sony TV very easily, great sound quality can control with my TV remote or the HEOS app on my tablet. Have also used it to stream, music, radio stations from the HEOS app again excellent quality. Would definitely recommend the Denon and Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walkerim89 from Amazing for films and music Had this a couple of weeks now and absolutely love it. The base on this through the subwoofer is unreal. Really makes a huge difference to our experience watching both films and streaming Spotify through it. It doesn't come with a remote but the app is easy enough to use despite the bad reviews. Maybe if we added more speakers we'd encounter problems with the app, but so far, no issues whatsoever. Really grateful to the Glasgow team for recommending this over the Yamaha I was considering. Not sure our neighbours are though. PS If you are considering buying from Richer Sounds, give them a call before buying online - great guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rod55 from Excellent service Purchased a Denon sound bar and Sennheiser headphones on the recommendation of Richer Sounds. Very happy with both items and the advice I was given.
