Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great looks, great user experience I have been using my HEOS 7 speaker for a few weeks and I am impressed - not just with the sound quality, but also the simplicity of the app. The sound is amazing! The speaker sounds great in low volume as well as high volume. The HEOS 7 sound quality isn't particular to a type of music; the HEOS 7 is able to handle the heavy bass in dance and hiphop music as well as the lighter treble in classical. Even podcasts sound great on the HEOS! The app is also very intuitive and easy to use. And it is set up to funnel all of my music sources (both streaming and static). I went ahead and bought two more speakers for my in-laws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unmatched quality for the price I have always been a fan of high quality speakers/systems, as i listen to a variety of music styles daily. This was my first Heos product, and WOW i am very impressed. It has very good range, the highs do not get fuzzy or distorted at high volumes and the bass does not drown out the rest.. it is very crisp and full sounding. This speaker was an excellent choice, it is perfect in size for my family room and has easy wireless connectivity to my phone. The overall build quality is very high, it has a unique style and modern look. I am a Denon customer for life after this experience!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound let down by an awful app. The sound quality is excellent, the system is easy to set up but once you start talking about the app not the hardware the story changes. The App feels unfinished and clunky to use, the queuing is poor across multiple devices and the playlist creation is very unintuitive. All the faults are in the app though and apps will be updated (hopefully quickly). This system has the potential to be awesome but at the moment lags behind Sonos in overall uability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the speaker! Just recently got the HEOS 7 speaker and we love it. It's the new family favorite! The speaker was so easy to set up. Plug it in and download the HEOS app to your device of choice or several devices. Our family added the app to our iPads, iPods and phones. The speaker isn't too big it fits nicely on the top of our entertainment center. The app was very easy to use. Just add the app which is a free download to your device. Then choose the many different areas to stream your music from such as Pandora, iheart RADIO or music on your device. Your device acts as your remote so you can control the music from anywhere in your house that is within your Wifi range. The sound of the speaker is crystal clear. It's loud enough to hear it on both floors of the house without being too loud. Easily adjust the volume from your device. The only issue we have now is fighting with the rest of my family on whose music to listen to since each person can control the music from their own device. Looks like we will be purchasing the smaller speakers so each person could play their own music choice at the same time. We are very happy with our purchase! Will definitely be purchasing additional speakers for the rest of the family. Great gifts also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Absolutely the best speaker! The sound is amazing! Turn the volume all the way up and the sound is clear and crisp without sacrifice. This is the definition of a quality speaker. Thanks Denon for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Path to Big Sound I went from opening the box to room-filling sound in less than 10 minutes. This speaker is by far better than all other wireless speakers I have owned. The set-up was easy and the HEOS app is a cinch to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sounding wireless speaker system! I have been skeptical about a single wireless speaker system ever since they were introduced. How could they deliver the type of full range sound I've grown accustomed to from the two channel stereo systems I've been listening to forever? Well, I finally bit the bullet as I've been looking for a solution for a small room and did not have the space nor budget for a complete audio system. I had a quick listen to a bunch of offerings from the usual suspects; Sonos, Bose, Sony, Samsung, etc, not necessarily side-by-side, and decided to go with the Denon Heos 7, which is their top of the line model. I selected the Heos 7 because they sounded best to me in the showroom and because of Denon's engineering, my previous experience with their products, and their reputation as a respected audio manufacturer. And boy, did I make the right choice! As soon as I unboxed it, I knew that this speaker was something special. It was easy to set up out of the box You simply download the Heos application onto your smart phone and within a few simple steps, you're streaming and listening to music. The Denon Heos 7 is by far the best sounding wireless speaker system I've heard to date and I've listened to many, including the market leading Sonos. None of the others come close to throwing a soundstage or producing the richness of sound like the Heos 7. I've got it temporarily set up in a fairly large sized room (12' x 20') with a 16 foot vaulted ceiling, and the imaging is incredible. Every genre of music sounds excellent and the bass is respectable for such a small speaker. No boominess or distortion even at loud playing levels. The Heos app is intuitive with just a minor delay when adjusting the sound or switching from track to track. I suspect the delay is attributed to the wireless network. There is support out of the box for a variety of music services including Pandora, Spotify, SiriusXM, Rhapsody, etc. However, one thing I tried unsuccessfully to do was set up the Heos as a DLNA device so that I could stream Youtube. I guess I'll have to research this further if it's possible or call and ask Denon support. The Heos 7 sounds great on it's own so I would love to hear how a two Heos system would sound as a stereo pair. On top of all this, the Heos 7 is a great looking speaker with a blue light glowing beneath it, so it definitely meets the WAF!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but APP for IOS 10 does not work I decided on Heos 7 2 separate speakers. WHY ?: 1. I great sound quality. Compared with BOSE Soundlink 30 ( good bass and trebble but not good voice frequencies and overpriced. 599+ TAX in Canada , Sonos PLAY 5 = good voice sound but terrible base salesman told me you need subwoofer ( $899+ TAX ) yeah RIGH! . Heos7 sounded best of them all, this is my personal opinion. 2. You can combo 2 speakers to make L+R channels for stereo SOUND! + you can change BASS and TREBLE via APP. APP sucks! I connected to device but I could not play or switch sources or change volume stop or pause. whatever I did in APP did not work. FIRMWARE UPGRADE took forever = no progress bar and I had to shutdown app to continue.Finally looks like it updated since I checked firmware version and it was last current one. But it did not change any behaviour of the APP, still not control over VOLUME, STOP, PAUSE. Speaker best plays from online radio or directly from smart device, AUX IN - would not work until I changed cable from OEM to regular 3.5MM stereo MALE to MALE plug.

I am wondering if there's any way I can connect a heos speaker (ex: heos 7 or the soundbar) to my TV and still control the volume with the TV remote? Right now using the audio output from the TV to my current home stereo I have to use the stereo remote.

Asked by: Chrisfromwisconsin
Yes, the soundbar has remote learning for both up and down volume, and mute allowing you to change volume using your TV's remote control. I am using a Sony LCD TV remote to control both the TV and the soundbar.

I have a Denon AVR-X6300H - can I group Heos wireless speakers to the right and left surround channels? All of my wired speakers in the room with my home theater are in the ceiling and I would like to have two at hearing level

Asked by: jimcover
In order to make speakers left and right you would need two speakers of the same model (ie 2 HEOS 3's) that would need to be grouped and set to stereo pair through the HEOS App..

I would really love to play some of the music I have collected for years. I have created playlist on Amazon, Itunes and I have downloaded Plex media server. I have been working on this for about two years. SO Frustrated because WHy cant I play my music?

Asked by: joeN
Hello Joen, I am sorry to hear you are frustrated. First I would like to make sure you downloaded your music onto the PLEX server as this is a common issue. Another option may be to put them on a NAS drive and connect that to your network. This would allow you to access your music via the HEOS app.

Can I connect 4-5 Heos 7 speakers via Link to an AVR-X7200WA and Denon blu-ray to get front and rear stereo surround sound channels wirelessly for home theater? Goal is remote control and surround audio of the whole home theater over the wifi network. 

Asked by: powrby4d
Yes, you can connect up to 32 HEOS Devices in one group. Unfortunately, at this time you would be unable to set up the HEOS devices as front or rear speakers as you are planning on. The HEOS speakers can be Stereo Paired for Left and Right but not Front and Rear.

Can I play directly from my computer by using this as a wifi speaker (like I can with my Zeppelin) or do I have to use the app?

Asked by: Darin
Windows "Play To" or "Cast To" works indeed, but (at the momen) Foobar2000 with foo_upnp and foo_out_upnp plugins doesn't work unfortunately. Especially foo_out_upnp is a gem regarding it delivers exactly what you describe from the Foobar2000 player. Foobar2000 is the preferred player ofcourse while it has CUE / Playlist support :), better than "Cast to", for example if you have one large WAV file, "Cast to" will treat this like one big track while Foobar2000 sees the tracks (with CUE file). Disclaimer: Neither Denon of the plug-in author is here 'at fault' because both works as advertised :)

Can I connect 4 heos 7's and the heos sub to play music/tv, not looking for surround sound or stereo, just want it to be loud.

Asked by: Tony b
Hi Tony. It’s possible to use an analog output from the TV to connect to the AUX input of a HEOS 7, then group your other HEOS speakers with it, but there will be a significant delay between video and audio. With that said, the setup which you described would really be best served by including a HEOS HomeCinema TV soundbar with wireless subwoofer. By connecting your TV to the HEOS HomeCinema, and using the TV Grouping feature, you can play TV audio throughout your multi room audio system. By grouping your HEOS 7 wireless speakers with the HEOS HomeCinema you can play TV audio to all of the speakers with minimal delay, and it will be plenty loud. I should also point out that the subwoofer is not available as a separate HEOS product. It specifically pairs with the sound bar and is not able to be used independently. If you’re interested in the HEOS HomeCinema, please check it out at the link below. Thanks! https://usa.denon.com/us/heos-homecinema-soundbar-with-wireless-subwoofer

hi - could i use heos 7 not only as my main audio streaming speaker, but as my home theater ( connected to my tv) as well?

Asked by: wert
Hello. It is possible to play TV audio through a HEOS wireless speaker by connecting the TV's analog audio output (if it has one) to the AUX input of the speaker. To do this you will need a stereo RCA to 3.5mm adapter. This will allow you to connect the red and white audio output of your TV to the single 3.5mm AUX connection on the HEOS 7.

Can I play 2 HEOS 7 at the same time using bluetooth?

Asked by: Maikelgm
Yes, you can. Although your Bluetooth source (mobile phone, tablet, laptop, etc) will likely only connect with one device at a time, you can start Bluetooth playback on one of the speakers, and then use the HEOS app to group both of them together. The Bluetooth source device will be connecting with one speaker, and that speaker will be sharing the audio with any other speakers that are grouped with it. Of course, this requires that both speakers be connected to your network. If there is no network connection, then this would not be possible. Thanks!
