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 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.

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 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 1 out of 5 by from Sound is good We purchased the HEOS by Denon because of the recommendations of good sound and easy use. We have had issues since we purchased. It will not connect to our TV so I have to spend times watching TV with no sound system. We spend a lot of money to enjoy or TV system and it has fallen flat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound is great when working I am so sorry I bought the HEOS sound bar when it was set up the person setting it up was in a hurry and did nothing but complain so we did not get a very good over view of how it works. After have to go thru the manual several times the bar works hit or miss. For the amount we spent very disappointed. I really hate to have to buy another system since this is a little less than a year old.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for movies, not the same for music Home Cinema is really compact, has a good design and plenty of inputs. It is easily driven by the TV ARC HDMI channel and by the Heos App. What is very good is the "spatiality" you can feel while viewing a movie: sometimes it seems there's another speaker hidden somewhere in the room. On the opposite side, while you are listening to the music, it could be even nice but... if you've got a pair of Heos 1 in the same room, the difference in reproducing music is tremendous: Heos 1 are really really better, especially on the low frequency where the Home Cinema has a vey wide lack of frequency (the bar give-up much before the subwoofer come into play while the Heos 1 are very linear in the answer). I'm not so happy about the Home Cinema just because I was thinking it was far better in listening to the music too (even if in the app you choose "music"). Just for this. The rest is perfect.

Can I pair 2 heos 1 speakers to my homecinema sound bar using the tv grouping in the app to create virtual surround sound?

Asked by: Robert S
Yes, but there's a delay between what you hear from the Home Cinema and what you heard from the Heos 1.

Is this sound bar compatible with the Denon DBT-3313UDCI blu-ray player? Want a simple system for home movies but we also like our CD collection.

Asked by: Big City
Yes the Denon DBT-3313UDC will be able to work alongside the HEOS soundbar. You can do this using the HDMI connection, or Coaxial input.

What's the difference in the DHTS514 and the HEOS sound Bar?  Is the DHtS system compatible?

Asked by: MASON
The DHTS514 will not work with additional HEOS speakers on your network like the HEOS Home-cinema will. The HEOS Soundbar is designed to interact with additional HEOS products.

Sound system set up for about a week. Can't connect music from cell. Through a series of restarts and reinstalls (on all devices) we got to a point where the remote worked for sound only, then tv commands only, now both but music from cell only worked 1x?

I am sorry you are having these issues with your HOES HomeCinema. I would recomenned you call in or email to speak with a HEOS expert who can assist you and troubleshoot your issue.

I bought the HEOS soundbar, I love it, sound is crystal clear. I dont like how the sound only comes from the front wall. So I bought 2 Hoes 1's for behind my couch. When i am on OPTICAL IN watching TV, it says they cannot pair for that input.Is this true?

Asked by: mgracz
It sounds like you need to enable TV Grouping in the HEOS APP for your HEOS Soundbar. When you enable TV grouping you will be able to play the Optical input to the HEOS 1's.

My wife wants to use a physical remote instead of smart phone app. How can she do this? Will any Universal remote work?

Asked by: Barryh
If your TV has an "ARC" HDMI, you would plug your HDMI cable into the ARC on the tv and the ARC on the HEOS. Your tv remote then works like a champ with not learning needed. You may have to go into settings and play around if your HEOS and tv are already up and running. Should be simple if you're setting up and going through the step-by-step first time use.

Can additional Heos speakers (such as HEOS 3) be used as surround speakers in conjunction with the sound bar and subwoofer?

Asked by: johna
As far as I understood, It must be clear that it's not a "real surround" setup: Heos speakers just play the same sound that the HomeCinema is playing (not the different channels of a real surround setup). I've been very disappointed about this (since I've bought HomeCinema with the purpose of using it together with Heos1 speakers to have a complete surround system).
