Denon expands its home theater lineup with the Home Sound Bar 550

Denon expands its home theater lineup with the Home Sound Bar 550”

If you've already invested in HEOS, Denon's wireless multi-room audio ecosystem, then the 550 will fit right in, attaching to the system as a separate wireless zone.

It can decode Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based three-dimensional formats, outputting through its quad 55mm drivers, dual 19mm tweeters and a trio of bass radiators to give rounded sound without the need for a subwoofer.

With no physical upfiring drivers, "expertly tuned" DSP is deployed to deliver a 3D audio performance in combination with Atmos and DTS:X decoding.

The Home Sound Bar 550 can be controlled with the included remote or most universal remotes, the HEOS app for iPhone and iPad, or the built-in illuminated control panel that lights up automatically as an outstretched hand approaches.

As a first for Denon, the soundbar features onboard software drivers for Control4, Crestron, URC and other home control systems, making it suited to integrators.

Additionally, the Home Sound Bar 350 supports high-resolution music playback (FLAC, WAV and ALAC to 24-bit/192kHz, plus DSD 2.8/5.6MHz) and streaming from Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Amazon Music HD and other platforms through the HEOS app. With eARC connectivity (Enhanced Audio Return Channel), the Sound Bar 550 delivers superior sound quality via a single HDMI connection to the TV. The new 'bar is also ready to act as an Alexa controller, via its built-in microphone.

The company says that, while smart assistant control is not available at launch, users should be able to use Alexa to control the soundbar this spring. This will conveniently and discreetly add voice controllable capabilities to the home theatre, giving users the ability to utter voice commands and control the sound bar's volume, select inputs, and adjust bass and treble.

The Denon Home Sound Bar 550 is available from Denon's website for $599, though it is out of stock as of Thursday morning.
