How to operate a Denon Home Wireless Speaker without your smartphone

6 Pro Turntable and Vinyl Tips for Record Store Day

One of the many great achievements of today’s wireless speakers is the huge variety of music sources available, from thousands of Internet Radio stations to well-curated streaming playlists featuring rock, pop, classic, or any other of your favorite genres. The natural downside of this is that you rely on your smartphone to open the app to play your music.

Music at your fingertips

The new Denon Home speakers now come with multiple options that will enable you to play, pause or skip your music directly from the speaker – no smartphone needed. The proximity sensing interface on the top panel of every model is activated as soon as your hand approaches. The buttons light up for you to touch, allowing for full, seamless control of the Denon Home speakers.

Quick Select Your Favorite Sources

Each Denon Home speaker has at least three quick select buttons on its top. You can easily assign your favorite Internet radio stations, music service stations, or another input to them for instant playback without picking up your smartphone. To register your quick select buttons, just start playing the station or input from the HEOS app, then press and hold down one of the quick select buttons on the Denon Home speaker for 3 seconds. When the status LED blinks once, the source is assigned to the button. With the Denon Home 150 and 250, there are three Quick Select buttons, while the Denon Home 350 has six, so everyone in the family can have their own favorite music source at their fingertips.


NEW! Skip or Start Over Tracks with Double or Triple Tap

You can also pause, skip, or replay songs on your Denon Home speakers without using the app.

All Denon Home speakers feature a Play/Pause button. Tapping Play/Pause once pauses or resumes the current track. Tapping it twice skips to the next song. Tapping it three times jumps back to the previous track or the beginning of the current track.
