Denon Home is a new range of multi-room speakers of the Japanese brand. The new wifi speakers are also based on the HEOS platform: Home 150, Home 250 and Home 350.
Compatibility with HEOS speakers is guaranteed, so this way it will be possible to integrate it into existing systems. If you have a HEOS soundbar, such as the HomeCinema HS2, you can connect two speakers wirelessly to use them as surround channels. Through the HEOS app, you can also take advantage of all the supported services, including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, TuneIn and Deezer.[True Wireless Headphones: Buying Guide]
