Denon HEOS Link & Amp

Denon HEOS Amp

Denon just announced HEOS Link ($349), which add wireless capabilities to existing stereo systems and HEOS Amp to make existing loudspeakers function wirelessly. Users simply connect the high-quality Link stereo pre-amplifier via an analog, digital coaxial or fiber-optic cable to turn any existing home cinema or music system into a wireless HEOS audio zone. What’s more, the Link lets users control select Denon receivers, integrated amplifiers or mini-systems via the HEOS App.

Meanwhile, the HEOS Amp ($499) is designed to add HEOS multi-room audio functionality to any pair of stereo loudspeakers1—perfect for outdoor, in-ceiling, floorstanding or bookshelf models—and features the same wireless ease-of-use as Denon’s HEOS speaker models. Incorporating an advanced and hugely powerful 100W Class D digital amplifier in a sleek compact chassis, the HEOS Amp delivers low distortion and high current capability.

HEOS delivers music from the world’s leading online music services, smart devices, as well as PCs, Macs or NAS drives on any home network. Beautifully styled and available in black with silver accents, the range is enhanced by an optional range extender that improves or expands the user’s existing home wireless network (sold separately). The whole HEOS system can simply be controlled by a single, slick state-of-the-art HEOS App, available for Apple and Android devices, that allows the system to be set up incredibly easily.

The App is designed to offer comprehensive control through a simple interface, allowing system set up via a couple of taps. It lets users group speakers together, to play the same song in party mode, as well as separate rooms to play a different song in each of them: the App puts control of the whole house’s music at a persons fingertips. It gives instant command of the music in every room, letting users create and save playlists as well as check what songs are next in the lineup. Whether streaming from Spotify, listening to tracks directly from a smartphone, or from DLNA, the HEOS App always allows for clear, intuitive control of the system, letting users name each HEOS player depending on the room it is in.

Price and Availability

The HEOS Link ($349) and HEOS Amp ($499) are expected to be available in mid-August 2014.
