HEOS comprises three active speaker options: HEOS 3, HEOS 5 and HEOS 7. Meanwhile the HEOS Link adds a HEOS zone to an existing amplifier system, while the HEOS Amp provides any set of stereo speakers with the same system capabilities.
HEOS works off a home’s network, both wired and wireless using dual-band 5GHz 802.11n. An optional HEOS extender wireless bridge is also available to extend a home’s wireless network where required.
“We are excited to introduce the HEOS range into our portfolio,” comments Stuart Tickle, managing director of AWE. “HEOS is the first multi-room audio product from a major global audio brand.”
“We are delighted to be able to offer the custom install market the HEOS by Denon,” adds Jason Dear, UK managing director at D+M Audiovisual.
“Having worked closely with AWE for many years with our core Denon and Marantz product portfolios, we believe that AWE are best placed to deliver the benefits of HEOS to this key channel and look forward to our continued partnership with AWE in order to grow the HEOS brand.”
HEOS 3 is the most compact speaker in the range and boasts a two channel digital amplifier, twin full-range speaker drivers and a bass port.
It is flexible in terms of placement, and can be positioned either horizontally or vertically or wall mounted using an optional bracket.
HEOS 5 is a four-driver speaker system, incorporating two precision tweeters, two mid/bass speakers and a passive radiator.
Each of the four active drives is powered by dedicated Class-D digital amplifier.
The largest of the three speakers, the flagship HEOS 7 includes five Class-D amplifiers powering dual mid-woofers, two precision tweeters, twin passive radiators and an active subwoofer.
All units can be used individually or linked and used as a stereo pair.
Set up and control is completed via a dedicated HEOS App, allowing an installer to complete the designation of zones quickly and easily.
HEOS supports Spotify, Deezer, Napster and Tuneln, or content on any networked PC and can direct these sources to multiple or individual zones.
