DENON HEOS DRIVE

Wireless Whole Home Multi-Zone Amplifier with HEOS Built-in

Designed for custom integration professionals, the Denon HEOS Drive is a unique 4 zone whole-home audio distribution system with a Class D, 8-channel amplifier, plus Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital+ decoding with stereo downmixing.

Rated at 60 watts per channel into each of the 8 channels (20Hz~20kHz, .05% THD, 8 ohms, All Channels Driven), 1 or 2 stereo amp pairs can be bridged for single channel high power output (130 watts).

Each zone in this multi-room amplifier features a stereo pair of pre-amp outputs, and each zone can be configured for stereo or mixed mono output. The matrix switching system features 2 optical digital inputs, 2 coaxial digital inputs and 4 analog stereo inputs, any of which can be assigned to any zone.

Equipped to handle virtually any combination of speaker configurations, Denon HEOS Drive features built-in DSP high pass/low pass filters. Set any output to full range, subwoofer or satellite speaker modes, with adjustable crossover points.

The speaker outputs feature 4-way binding posts that are compatible with banana plug terminations, and there are 4 12V trigger outputs. The chassis features quiet fan cooling for long term stability and operational reliability.
