Offering a total of three new models – the 350, 250, and 150 – this new Denon Home series seamlessly merges their ongoing commitment to sound quality with the enhanced convenience of wireless technology in-demand by today’s consumers. While in the past, products addressed EITHER convenience OR quality – the company says you don’t have to choose…you can have both.
With this series, the company says consumers can effortlessly stream their favorite music from Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, TIDAL and more…along with high-resolution audio files on USB drives, smartphones, or off their home networks. And all of this is “reference quality playback” the company says…without the need for hi-fi separate components.
“This new lineup of high-fidelity speakers from Denon are designed from the ground-up. Leveraging Denon’s expertise in Hi-Fi amplification, DSP engineering and sound master tuning, the new Denon Home delivers unrivaled precision and incredible bass response. Since Denon Home uses the latest HEOS platform, they are fully compatible with Denon AV receivers – the leading AVR brand in the world – as well as all HEOS built-in product. With high-resolution audio more accessible than ever before, it was important to support gapless playback of 192kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV, ALAC, and DSD 2.8/5.6MHz files. Finally, wireless setup makes it incredibly easy to setup and add more speakers to Denon Home to get users up and running in no time.”Michael Greco, Sound United Senior director of Global Brand Management
Meet the Denon Home 350…250…150
350 – The three models are generally self-selectable based on room size, as well as feature sets. The 350 is the largest unit with the biggest speaker assortment – 2-tweeters/2-mid-bass drivers/2-woofers – and including the most features. It is designed for use in larger listening environments. Users will typically select this model for use as a “primary entertainment source,” the company says.
Thanks to its full built-in three-way speaker assortment – and especially its twin 6.5″ woofers and powerful 6-channel amplifier, the 350 will deliver the most robust bass performance sure to be appreciated by end-users. The 350 also includes six proximity controlled Quick Select buttons for instant recall of favorite internet radio stations. The 350 will sell for $699 MSRP.
250 – The 250 shares many of the same features as the 350, but with a slightly lesser speaker set – a two-way design with 2-tweeters/2-mid-bass and a single separate passive radiator for more bass depth – as it is designed for use in more mid-sized spaces. The 250 will sell for $499 MSRP.
150 – Finally, the 150 is designed for those smaller spaces with a simple two-way (1-tweeter/1-woofer) speaker set built-in and fewer overall features. But don’t let the 150’s diminutive size fool you…it still is a powerful performer. The 150 will sell for $249 MSRP
