WHAT HI-FI?

One of the most well-equipped contenders to take on Sonos at the game it knows so well. It's similarly priced, equally stylish, wonderfully simple to use and includes a few great features that, as yet, Sonos has overlooked.

TechWeLike

The HEOS app seemed responsive and intuitive. Things we need when jamming out to our songs!

Denon has 100 years of sound engineering behind them so when they have a new product, you should listen.
