The Denon Home series of wireless acoustics has been replenished with a subwoofer, which is called the Denon Home Subwoofer. The novelty supports HEOS proprietary wireless technology, which allows you to control the system and transmit audio signal wirelessly.
The subwoofer is an addition to Denon Home systems and therefore pairs perfectly with the Denon Home Sound Bar 550. Using a pair of speakers from the same series as rear satellites, the system can be upgraded to a full 5.1 home cinema setup.
The novelty is quite compact. The downward facing 8″ driver, which runs on an optimised reflex port, together with the Class D amplifier and other electronics, is housed in an enclosure with dimensions of 330x373x330mm. In all, the subwoofer weighs in at 12.5kg. The geometry of the cabinet will ensure 360-degree sound uniformity – a definite plus for a subwoofer in a room.
In addition, in the HEOS app, you can configure the subwoofer – adjust the filter frequency, switch the phase, set the level. WiFi IEEE 802.11ac is used for signal transmission. You can also connect with a cable – there is an RJ45 network connector on the rear panel. In addition, there is a USB port nearby – with it the system can read audio tracks from memory media.
The frequency range in which the Denon Home Subwoofer operates is not specified, but the price is already there – in the US it will cost $600.
