EISA SMART SOUNDBAR
One part Dolby Atmos/DTS:X soundbar, one part fully-fledged HEOS multiroom speaker, Denon’s Home Sound Bar 550 brings both a rewarding audio performance to movie and music playback, and the possibility of expansion to a home cinema-style multichannel system with optional wireless surrounds and subwoofer. Operation via its remote control is simple and intuitive, but the HEOS app experience is even slicker – and it’s here that users can stream music from subscription services, Internet radio or their own network. Amazon Alexa functionality, via in-built microphones, removes the need to even lift a finger. Rounding off this smart package are proximity-sensing touch controls, HDMI switching with Dolby Vision passthrough, and a superior design and build.
