Rated 1 out of 5 by from Abismal software and app I must first say the speaker itself for its size produces great sound. However this is pretty much where to good news stops and its positives are irrelevant when its a nightmare if not impossible to get the desired sound to the speaker! I purchased the HEOS 1 as an experiment to see how good the overall system is before speaker on anything more expensive, in short the usability of the system is extremely limited and has not progressed in the months I've own it. If Denon ever becoms serious about streaming then I will come back and look at buying additional units and the big brother/sister units but for my HEOS 1 will gather dust quietly (literally) on the shelf. This product line has great potential but the software (app) is decades behind where it needs to be and not very reliable for the limited functionality it has. For me I should be able to stream any audio source from any app on my phone or computer directly to the HEOS speaker(s) I should not have to use the HEOS App or be restricted to what it allows. EG, I'm sitting on my back porch watching a show or a football game on my iPhone or computer etc. I should be able to directly stream the audio from that to the speakers, but nope not a chance! Sure I can ad hoc an apple tv or an airport express but why should I havre to do that having purchased "wireless speakers" its farcical. Right now all you can do is send audio from the very limited "approved" streams in the app which are all audio providers only. In summary I would stay away for spend any amounts of money on these unless you sole intent is to steam radio from the limited providers it acknowledges it supports. For me this product fails in all aspects us usability sad functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! I received this as a gift so I was eager to try it out. After taking it out of the box I immediately got started. I found the instructions online easily enough and downloaded the app. Installation took about 10 mins -which is pretty good because I am not the most technology savvy person. I have to admit, this speaker has a great sound. Comparing it to the sound bar in my living room, the sound has a depth and clarity that I wasn't expecting. If this had Bluetooth it would be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but missing key functionality.... Sounds quality is really good for the size of the speaker, however for me the biggest drawback is the lack of Apple music support, this is heavily restrictive for me as the majority of the Music I own was purchased via iTunes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A small speaker with a big sound! Clear crisp sound. Much better than my other wireless speakers. Sleek modern design that will look great in any room in the house. Perfect for moving from room to room. Can't wait to use it on my deck. The set up could not have been easier. Download the app and follow the instructions and you're done! I like that all the music apps can be played from the HEOS app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little speaker I love this speaker. It puts out tons of sound for its size and it looks great. Setup was dead simple, connect your phone via the included cable, download the app, enter your password and that's it! I also can't say enough about the Heos app, playing a favorite Pandora station as well as navigating my music library is quick and simple. 5 stars!

My Heos1-HS2 (wifi connected) doesn't seem to go in power-saving mode: even after a day I'm not using them, they are always "warm" on the back (power save is enabled into setup). Same for the Home Cinema (even if wire-connected). Any solution?

Asked by: Richard
Thanks a lot for the answer. Unfortunately the procedure is not working on my Heos 1 Hs2: if I push and release the mute button, the mute function becomes active. If I keep the mute button pressed (for 3-5-15-etc seconds), nothing happens and... when I release it... the "mute" function becomes active (no difference, then, between pressing for 1 or 10 seconds). Any hint? Thanks in advance Regards

Hello, thanks for the opportunities to ask questions. The closest outlet for my Heos 1 is meters away from it and I can't hide the power-adapter so I would like to come to Heos 1 only with the 20V cable. Any chance to extend it? Which is the max lenght?

Asked by: Richard
Hi Richard. We recommend using the supplied power adapter (power supply), but as long as the power supply you use matches the specifications of the power supply we provide, it should be OK. We don't have a specification for how long you can extend the power supply, but since it outputs DC the length of the wire does matter. A few meters longer should not be a problem, but the length won't be an issue if you use an AC extension cord or surge protector, and use the original power supply that comes with the HEOS 1 to achieve the necessary distance. The power supply we provide is a Switching Mode Power Supply: Input: 100-240V ~ 50-60Hz 1.0A MAX Output: 20.0V - 2.0A EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: The power supply you use must have the correct polarity. On our power supply, the outer ring is NEGATIVE and the inner ring is POSITIVE. If you use a power supply that has this reversed it will damage the HEOS 1 speaker.

what is the dc power connection (size and voltage) on the heos 1 speaker?

Asked by: bctent
Hi bctent. The HEOS 1 needs 20 volts DC. The outside diameter of the connector is 5mm, and the inside depth of the connector is 10mm. We recommend using the power adapter which is provided with the speaker. If you need to order a replacement, you can order directly from our parts distributor at the links below. Thanks!

Hi, My problem is that i can not to my Music play from iclod (iTunes). Can I do that?. The Apps heos sends me a message: "Maybe this song is not fully discharged cloud or have DRM protection"

Asked by: Alfredomb
At this time HEOS does not support playback from iCloud. The track needs to be downloaded from the cloud to your device, where it can be played by selecting "This iPhone" in the HEOS app.

Hello, I'm an addicted to the Heos 1. Question: is it possibile to jump to previous/next song without using the app? As I can mute/adjust volume on the speakers, can I jump to next song without using the app, since my smartphone could be somewhere else?

Asked by: Richard
Hi Richard. It's great to hear that you're enjoying your HEOS 1 speaker. For the most part the track playback can only be controlled by the HEOS App. There is no track playback control on the speaker itself, but there are a couple ways to control the speaker outside of the HEOS app on your mobile device. 1) Spotify Connect: You can control playback from the Spotify desktop application on your computer if you have a Spotify Premium account 2) You can use the PlayTo or CastTo function of certain DLNA media servers like Windows Media Player or JRiver. This would also be on your computer. 3) There are several third party control systems which can be professionally installed and programmed to automate and control your home, and your home entertainment systems. If your home is already integrated with such a system, your custom integrator may be able to add programming for your HEOS devices as well. I believe what you really want to know is if it can be done from the speaker itself, but I wanted to make sure you're aware of the above alternatives as well. Thanks!

I wanting to connect 2 HEOS 1's together and stream music with bluetooth, without them being connected to WIFI/network. Am I able to only use bluetooth with one speaker or can I use bluetooth with 2 HEOS 1s

Asked by: choker
Unfortunately this is not possible. Generally speaking, your mobile device can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time. The only way to play one Bluetooth stream on multiple speakers is to have the speakers connected to the same WiFi network so that they can be grouped together to share the same source.

Hello, are there any options to connect a subwoofer to these speakers? How about Google Play Music, is this useable with Heos 1? Thanks, Peter

Asked by: Subwoofer Lover

I want to connect an Echo Dot in the Aux Line Input to a Heos 1. If I'm playing music wirelessly through say Spotify Connect to that speaker, will the Heos 1 switch over the Aux Line Input when it detect audio coming through it? The Sonos Play 5 does.
