Details

Denon have always made high quality hi-fi components and their foray into wireless multiroom streaming systems is a definite success. They spent over 5 years developing the HEOS system and it's really paid off.

The HEOS 3 is the smallest speaker in the range but don't be fooled by size! The innovative design not only looks great but the shape means that the sound is crystal clear. A flat sided speaker can cause standing waves and, therefore, distortion in the sound. The multi-sided shape of the HEOS 3 means this can't happen. There are two custom made wide range drivers powered by a two-channel class D amplifier to give a powerful sound. You can adjust how much bass and treble you like with the graphic equalizer included in the settings and even configure two speakers to be a stereo pair. There's also some clever technology inside that means they can be placed either vertically or horizontally and the sound will be optimised for that placement. This is the only speaker in the HEOS range that can be wall mounted.

Unlike some other multiroom systems, HEOS by Denon doesn't require a hub or any of the speakers to be wired in to work (of course there are still power leads but that's it!) As long as the speakers can pick up you wi-fi router, they will work. If your house is really big or you have trouble getting a signal in certain room, HEOS have come up with a clever solution in the HEOS EXTEND.

Set up and control is incredibly fast and simple with the app which is free and available for any smart phone or tablet. Through this you can group some or all of your speakers or just use one while someone plays something different on the speaker in another room. You can access music stored anywhere across your home network, as well as internet music services such as Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn Radio. All HEOS speakers also include and auxiliary and USB input and if a device is plugged into one of these on one speaker, you can access the music stored on there on any other speaker in the system, not only the one it's connected to. The app also allows every user in your household to create their own account which will store their log in details to any internet music services they use as well as playlists and history. Pretty clever!

There's a lot to like about this system as a whole and the HEOS 3 works well for most rooms, especially when paired with another one.
