Denon has released the DHT-S216, its first all-in-one soundbar with DTS Virtual:X. Priced at £199/€219, the soundbar leverages advanced 3D algorithms developed by DTS to realistically simulate a multi-channel soundtrack played on a home theatre surround sound system.
The DHT-S216 is easily connected to any TV and media player via 4K UHD HDMI with Audio Return Channel or Optical/Auxiliary inputs for exceptional sound clarity.
At only 6cm tall, the Denon DHT-S216 has been tuned by Denon sound masters to deliver effective playback quality of music and movies using two 3-inch down-firing subwoofers, two racetrack-sized dual mid-range drivers and two 1-inch tweeters for a dynamic theatre-quality experience from a sleek, low-profile design.
New to the Denon soundbar lineup, the DHT-S216 features Pure Mode, which eliminates surround processing and removes any adjusted characteristics associated with Movie, Music or Night mode for a more precise and open sound. Listeners can also pair their smartphone or tablet with the soundbar via Bluetooth to stream their favourite music with ease.
The wall-mountable Denon DHT-S216 can be set up in minutes. Compatible with all HD and 4K TVs, use the provided HDMI cable to send audio from Smart TVs and other connected sources via the HDMI Audio Return Channel (1 in / 1 out with ARC) supporting 4K/60 Hz and HDCP 2.2.
Once connected via HDMI ARC, the soundbar is controlled with a TV remote. If HDMI ARC isn’t available, the soundbar offers an optical input and can be wirelessly paired via Bluetooth to stream music, podcasts and other audio content.
“The latest soundbar from Denon has been engineered to deliver the most lifelike listening experience, including detail, balance and bass extension far beyond other soundbars in this size and price range,” says Michael Greco, Global Sr. Director of Brand Management for Denon. “The DHT-S216 leverages partnerships with the industry’s leading virtual surround sound manufacturers like DTS and Dolby to provide people with a simple way to experience the excitement of cinematic sound quality at home.”
The DHT-S216 is currently available via authorised Denon retailers.
