Denon has added Heos to all its network AV receivers. All Denon AVRs will have Heos, Wi-Fi, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth and Dolby Atmos. The range starts with the AVR-X1400H at £429 and they'll be with us in June.
The new launches are in addition to the already-launched Heos soundbar (£799) with £599 sub and Heos AVR (see video below, also £799) which can also connect to the subwooder wirelessly as well as pairs of Heos speakers. Denon is pitching the Heos AVR as a 'bridge' product between a soundbar and a traditional AVR.
Denon's parent company, Sound United, is also planning on adding Heos integration to other products from Polk and Definitive Audio. Denon said it will also be launching a brand new flagship amplifier in the early part of next year. Heos also features in our guide to the best wireless speakers.
The rather lovely Denon Design Series now has a matching £499 CD player, coming September.
Plus there's also new PMA30 (without USB) and PMA60 (with USB for connection to a PC) units for £339/£499. However, Heos is missing - at least for 2017 - from the Design Series, which seems like an unfortunate omission.
The company also revamped its micro system last month, with the launch of the D-M41DAB which included Bluetooth. Interestingly, you can turn the Bluetooth on and off - in a fascinating detail Denon says this is to remove the possibility of any noise coming from the circuitry while playing CDs.
Finally, there's the Envaya Bluetooth speaker lineup at £89, £129 and £169 coming in Oct. All three are waterproof and boast a 10-12 hour battery life.
