Denon Jumps on the Multi-Room Wireless Music Bandwagon with HEOS by Denon


At launch, the HEOS by Denon lineup will include three wireless multi-room speakers.

There are a lot of wireless multi-room speakers out there. Sonos has been cranking out solutions (including this and this) for years, while Bose recently introduced the SoundTouch, Samsung debuted Shape, and Bluesound outed well... the Bluesound system. Now, Denon Electronics is hoping to take on the entire lot, by announcing HEOS by Denon.

Like all of the music options mentioned above, the HEOS by Denon lineup features speakers that can deliver audio in almost any room, all without wires. It uses your home's existing Wi-Fi network and the DenonController app to stream music to any (or all!) rooms in the house. The free app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Denon says that the speakers will be able to stream from "the world's leading online music services including top cloud sources, 'legacy' sources, and any smart device." However, there's no word on exactly which services users can expect.

What we do know is that the HEOS by Denon system uses dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, in order to deliver a better range and to avoid interference with other network devices. Once the speakers are hooked up, the app allows users to songs and which rooms will get them. In other words, you can send everything to all of the speakers connected or just choose a few. Denon also promises new technologies for these speakers, including embedded MaxxAudio by Waves digital signal processing (DSP).

"HEOS by Denon represents the next evolution in products from Denon, a company that for over 100 years is still leading in sound quality, new technologies and innovative products that not only appeal, but anticipate what consumers are looking for," said Brendon Stead, Denon's vice president of product development. "The great-looking HEOS Multi-Room Wireless Speaker plays music contained on your smartphone. If you have more than one speaker, they can work as a multi-room system for your entire home. It's the ideal audio setup transferring Denon's music experience to today's busy consumer, allowing them to enjoy their favorite cloud music services to the fullest."

At launch, the HEOS by Denon line will include three multi-zone music players: the HEOS 3, the HEOS 5, and the HEOS 7. Prices on the speakers will range from $200 to $599. An optional access point range extender will also be available (and sold separately) to help improve or expand on the reach of any existing home network. Denon expects the speakers to launch sometime later this month, with pre-amp/amp expansion products to follow.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.
