Reviews And Awards - HEOS HomeCinema

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound, simple setup I recently added the HEOS Home Cinema to our existing HEOS multi-room system to replace an older sound bar. The connection was very straight-forward (even with our older non-ARC TV with an optical output) and the HEOS Bar learned the IR commands from our Samsung without a hitch. Very cool to be able to use either the TV's remote or the HEOS app to easily control the system. Just follow the prompts during setup. One interesting thing- the fidelity an range of this speaker is far superior to the little HEOS3, so low bitrate TuneIn stations (32 kbps AAC according to the app) sound as thin as they actually are...going to higher resolution music from TIDAL or even Spotify is a HUGE improvement. (TV and Movies played through the TOSlink in sound awesome too)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from surround sound Listen people, If your looking for a true surround sound, then clear the cobwebs from pocket and buy a true surround sound receiver and speakers. Heos, Sonos, and all others that are out should only be used for distributed audio throughout the home. If you live in a box in the city, then any speaker bar will work. I will say- that Heos is a more powerful system than Sonos, not to mention, Denon is an audio company- not a software company. Stop trying to get a top of the line surround sound system for the price of a home theater in a box!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This soundbar produces amazing sound for movies and music. Despite what other reviews have stated, the app works perfectly and initial setup was super easy. I tried several soundbars before settling on this one and we're extremely happy with the product. So much so we've already ordered more HEOS speakers for around the house. Denon is awesome because they include EVERY cable/piece of hardware you could ever need to use their soundbar. I can't stress enough the amazing sound that comes out of this soundbar, it just rocks everything you send through it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The worthless App makes HEOS short of being great The sound is awesome, the system is fairly simple to set up, the connectivity for Wi-Fi its key selling point is okay but still glitchy. But the App is the worse. You would think after the tons of complaints, and the years of refining this that they would have resolved it by now. I have stayed loyal assuming they would get their act together and now have the home theater and 4 other speakers throughout the home. I would by more but I fear its a gamble. I would suggest finding code writers that can make the app work, RF experts that can refine the connectivity and fix your known issues. Great product, poor follow-through

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I wanted a system that was wireless and sounded great without spending a whole lot of money, I heard many soundbars before buying this one. Amazing sound with great bass from sub woofer. Also loved the app witch controls the system. What a great buy, I have recommended this home cinema to my family and friends and they also purchased it and love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing We thought that this bar would work well with its brother Denon receiver. No sir. We are feeding an HDR signal through the Denon which feeds the TV. There is no documentation to tell us if the Home Cinema passes the HDR signal to the TV if you feed the bar first. Even if it did, we were not comfortable passing from HDMI switch to HDMI switch to get the signal finally to the TV so we ran to the TV directly. With an optical feed back to the Home Cinema it is impossible to get rear channels and the bar to work together. We tried everything, called support and no one had an answer. That just seems really dumb to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From the Party to the Game! It always sounds incredible. Ahead of time, the music fills the party and I never get tired of answering the question, "How does it make bass like that?" when all they can see is the subtle soundbar. Then the football game comes on and you feel the impacts of the players and hear the calls on the line like you were there. It's simply amazing every time. My wife has no problem switching from music on her phone to watching a movie and you just couldn't say that about our old system that required two extra remotes to accomplish that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Need a sound bar but didn't have room for lots of speakers around the room. High quality sound delivered from just this one speaker and subwoofer . Very pleased. App works nicely with my Spotify account.

Q&A - HEOS HomeCinema

When shutting off my television, the Home Cinema gets muted. Is there a way to disable the flashing blue 'mute' light? it doesn't appear as though this light is controlled with the status light settings.

Asked by: mast3rof0
Hello mast3rof0, It sounds like the TV or cable remote has the codes in it to Mute the bar instead of turn off the bar. There is not a way to disable any lights on the bar. You may have to have your TV manufacture or cable provider change the codes in your remote so it does not mute the soundbar when you press power.

How can I listen to my mp3 player on my home cinema

Asked by: Pito
Hello Pito, The only way you would be able to do that would be with an auxiliary cable connected via the AUX IN on the HEOS HomeCinema bar and the other end connected to the MP3 player.

my soundbar light is flashing red and I have no sound. Help please

Asked by: goHoos1983
Hello goHoos1983, Here is what I would try. Restoring the HEOS device to its factory defaults will clear all of the settings and restore the original software which was installed at the factory. Caution All settings will be erased and the software will likely be downgraded! To restore your HEOS device to the factory defaults, unplug the power cable from the back of the HEOS device. Insert a small paperclip into the RESET button hole on the back of the HEOS device, reconnect the power cable, and hold it in until the front LED begins to flash amber If this does not work, please give our customer service team a call at: 201-762-6665 M-F 10am-7pm EST
