The HEOS audio lineup has some new upgrades.
Denon has announced an update to its HEOS Wireless Multi-Room Sound System lineup. As part of the upgrade, the new HEOS family of speakers, pre-amps and amps now support Bluetooth and high resolution audio.
"We are pleased to introduce this new upgrade to our HEOS platform that brings high resolution audio playback, built in Bluetooth, and a significant increase in processing power that will intensify performance and support new features that we can't wait to bring to the HEOS family!" said Brendon Stead, SVP product development at Denon. "Consumers are embracing our HEOS line of products, and we are looking forward to making the platform even better with new software features."
The HEOS line offers a wireless multiroom audio solution for customers, allowing them to stream music from tablets, smartphones, USB storage, and internet services through the HEOS controller app for Android, iOS, and Fire devices. With HEOS, users can group several rooms together and play the same song perfectly synchronized, or play a different song in every room. Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, Rhapsody, iHeart Radio, TIDAL, SiriusXM, Soundcloud and Amazon Music playback are also included. Likewise, HEOS lets customers stream Bluetooth content from one speaker to other speakers over Wi-Fi. With the update for high res audio, the new models now offer support for uncompressed WAV (PCM), ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) and FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) music files up to 24-bit/192-kHz over network or USB. In addition, DSD and AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format) audio track support is coming soon as well.
