Denon DHT-S514 soundbar delivers big sound for the thin screen
Today revealed a new elegantly styled soundbar with wireless subwoofer.
Sydney, Australia – 11 February, 2014 – Denon, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products, today revealed a new elegantly styled soundbar with wireless subwoofer. As high definition flat panel TV screens become ever thinner, manufacturers are increasingly challenged to provide comparable sound quality from ever smaller integral speakers.
The Denon DHT-S514 state-of-the-art TV soundbar is the flat screen solution for big picture sound, with simple HDMI and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) functionality enables sound from other audio-video devices connected with HDMI to the TV to be played via the DHT-S514 and the Denon Virtual Surround processing and a wireless subwoofer ensures fully enveloping TV and music sound.
The DHT-S514 is a low visibility, hi-fidelity sound system that delivers powerful dynamic audio from the dual channel 2-way soundbar and wireless connected subwoofer. It instantaneously transforms a flat screen TV into a home entertainment centre – for TV and movie viewing, gaming, or high quality music playback. Connectivity includes digital, analogue and wireless inputs, with aptX Bluetooth streaming for CD-quality wireless audio from Bluetooth equipped portable devices, smartphones and tablets. In addition, Denon Virtual Surround technology simulates full multi-channel home theatre surround sound with Dolby Digital and DTS decoding. Selectable listening modes include Dialog, Movie, Music and Night Mode for late night viewing enjoyment without disturbing other household members.
The DHT-S514 comes with its own remote control but also has the ability to learn commands from the TV remote control (or a larger ‘master’ system remote) to reduce the number of remote controls sitting around the room. In case the soundbar is placed in front of the TV, an IR repeater is included to allow the TV remote control signal to pass through to the TV IR receiver.
Elegantly styled, easy to setup and simple to use, the Denon DHT-S514 ensures top-quality audio with the latest thin TVs.
