Denon DHT-S216 is the Bluetooth Soundbar compatible with DTS Virtual:X technology. The new model is positioned on a lower range compared to products like DHT-S316 which has been priced at $299.
The body of the device measures 890 x 60 x 120 mm and weighs 3.4 kilograms. A bracket for wall mounting is also supplied. The configuration is 2.0 with a total of 6 transducers, as well as two 7.62 cm woofers, two 4.44 x 8.89 cm mid-ranges and two 2.54 cm tweeters which make it perfect soundbar for TV.
The tv sound bars support audio in Dolby Digital and DTS format. The DTS Virtual:X allows you to recreate an enveloping sound from the 2-channel configuration. The algorithms have been developed to expand listening in a vertical sense and to surround the viewer.
The user has various methods available, including Movie, Music and Night. The Dialogue Enhancer improves the intelligibility of the dialogues by providing 3 special functions that do not affect the overall volume. It also adds the Pure Mode that eliminates any sound processing and equalizations.
Connectivity includes an HDMI 2.0 input and output with HDCP 2.2 and ARC, Bluetooth with A2DP, optical digital input and analog input on a 3.5 mm jack. The soundbar with subwoofer can also be connected, useful for reinforcing the low frequencies, via the dedicated output.
