Features - HEOS Amp

HEOS wireless amplifier: turn any speakers into a wireless zone.

The HEOS Amp is designed to add HEOS multi-room audio functionality to a pair of stereo speakers, and features the same wireless ease of use as our self-powered HEOS speaker models.

Featuring advanced Class D digital amplification, the HEOS Amp delivers 100 watts maximum power per channel, with lowest distortion and high current capability that provides reliable and stable operation with lower impedance speakers, including 4 ohms models.

With the HEOS Amp, you can enjoy listening to your favorite loudspeakers, and the high power rating means that you can enjoy room-filling sound quality even at concert hall levels.

In addition to the stereo speaker outputs, the HEOS Amp features additional connectivity, including a sub output for connection to a powered subwoofer. There's also an analog stereo line input (via RCA jacks), and an additional auxiliary input via 3.5mm jack for direct connection to a portable player's headphone output.

An optical digital input lets you connect a digital music source such as a CD player, and a USB port lets you connect a portable thumb drive to listen to your favorite tracks. You can also use the USB port to charge your portable device. In addition to the built-in dual band "N" wireless system, the HEOS Amp is also equipped with an RJ-45 Ethernet port for direct connection to a wired LAN setup.

As with our HEOS wireless speaker models, you'll be able to stream your favorite music tracks and control the HEOS Amp with our HEOS App, which is available in both iOS and Android versions. With the HEOS App, you can choose to listen to music tracks on your smartphone, tablet or portable audio player, and you also can listen to your choice of internet radio stations, and you can also listen to your favorite music streaming service.

The home stereo amplifier lets you choose different songs for each room, or you can listen to the same song in all rooms. Our exclusive digital technology provides precise audio synchronization (within microseconds) to ensure top audio fidelity and stereo imaging quality.

The stylish HEOS Amp enclosure features elegant silver accents, and for convenience, there are volume and mute controls discreetly placed on the side panel.

    All HEOS speakers provide an amazing music experience. Generally, HEOS 7 is suggested for large rooms and open areas such as living rooms, patios, or open-floor-plan homes or any enthusiast who wants the deepest bass and highest output; HEOS 5 for medium to large rooms such as dining rooms, larger bedrooms and offices or smaller living rooms; and HEOS 3 for small to medium sized rooms, such as bedrooms, offices or kitchens. The HEOS 1, because of its humidity resistance, is perfect for listening in damp or steamy environments, such as a bathroom. If you add the HEOS 1 Go Pack, you can even take your speaker to the park.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean sound, small package. I have limited space but had to drive some high quality Bowers and Wilkins speakers. The best solution for my needs. The speakers love some power and the Heos amp delivers plenty. My one and only quibble is I wish sometimes there was a simple, dedicated IR or IP remote that would offer simple volume up/down mute and standby functionality. Sometimes bringing the app on my iOS device Into focus takes longer than I would like when I need to turn the volume down NOW because the phone is ringing. Especially when the phone is same one I'm using to control the amp. Small quibble with an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great addition to any HEOS system I have my entire house connected to HEOS from my bedroom, basement, bar, living room sound bar, outside patio and garage. I am very picky on my speakers so I use Def Tech in-ceiling for the bar. I was using the AV receiver for this area but I switched to the AMP and what ease of use and simplicity. I love this product, so so so easy to set up a monkey could do it. Flawless integration and app is incredible. The sub output is a nice feature as well! HEOS rocks, don't hesitate.

Does the hoes amp have to have internet to work where I live I have no internet

Asked by: alpha86
You would need internet to use internet radio or services such as Pandora. A local network can be set up without internet to play local music such as from a usb, an analog or digital course such as a CD player, or from your smartphone/tablet.

Can I leave the Amps on 24/7 or is it recommended to turn them off overnight or when not in use for prolonged period?

Asked by: Wthach
Leaving them on overnight is not an issue with the HEOS AMP.

What is the rated output for 4 and 16 ohm loads?

Asked by: diegoruiz
Hi Diego. We only record and publish the specifications at 8 and 6 ohms. The exact power output at 4 ohms or 16 ohms is not recorded. However, you can determine approximate values using the 8 and 6 ohm ratings provided. Since the 8 ohm rating is 70 watts, and the 6 ohm rating is 100 watts, we can estimate the 4 ohm rating at somewhere around 130 watts per channel.

What is the difference between the Denon HEOS link wireless pre-amplifier and the Denon HEOSs amp wireless amplifier when using HEOS 3 or HEOS 5 speaker and Denon Soundbar?

Asked by: Escogido
The HEOS Link is a preamp intended for use with a separate AV receiver or amplifier. The HEOS Amp has amplifiers built in, so you can connect a pair of passive speakers directly to it. Both can be grouped for playback with other HEOS devices.

Heos Amp - I read in the specs it can play DSD files. We went to HD tracks and downloaded a sample but could not get it to play from a USB Stick or over the network from my hard drive. Is anyone else able to play DSD tracks - maybe wrong file format?

Asked by: Dave R
Hi Dave. Only the current HS2 models are able to play Hi-Res audio files. If you look at the model number on your HEOS Amp, you should see HS2 indicated there. If you're not certain, the HS2 HEOS Amp also looks different from the original version. The HS2 is entirely dark grey, while the original version is light gray with a gloss black front panel. The HS2 also has a Bluetooth button where the original version has a recessed reset button. If you do have a HS2 model, there are still limits to the Hi-Res files which can be played. Please refer to the Supported Files list in the user manual at the link below. Thanks! http://manuals.denon.com/HEOSAmpHS2/ALL/EN/OKNRSYyqodrnii.php

Hello again. I can control everything through the receiver. If I connect directly from the receiver zone 2 analog output >> heos amp >>wired speakers to make zone 2.Can I pair an HEOS 3 to the HEOS amp and have synchronized music in zone 2 and the heos3?

Asked by: Crispin15
If you add a HEOS Amp to your network this would allow you to group the HEOS 3 and HEOS Amp together. Once they are grouped you can playback your music in both zones at the same time.

I have a X4200W recvr. Can I use the HEOS amp as a zone 2 amplifier connected to the receiver? Can I add a HEOS 3 to the setup without adding an HEOS link?

Asked by: Crispin15
Hello Crispo, in order to use the X4200W receiver with any HEOS speakers, you would need a Link to allow them to communicate. Adding a HEOS Amp would not be an issue but it would not speak to the receiver without a HEOS Link.

My HEOS amp does not give continuous performance seems To loose connection with netgear extender extender very close and iPhone on same network suggestions?

Asked by: BobG
Wireless Extenders are not a great option to your wireless woes- take it from me who, an IT and Home Theater expert who sometimes set these extenders up for home clientele. I would recommend the newer mesh network kits out there from Eero, Luma, Google Wifi, and the Netgear Orbi. These create a more seamless whole home wireless network experience. Extenders create sub-networks on top of the main networks! Plus extenders are half as effective at most times cutting your speeds down typically by half. Overall the answer to your question here is that the network extender is to blame and not the HEOS system.
