The DHT-S516H and DHT-S716H Deliver Powerful Surround Sound for Movies, Music and TV with Support for Hi-Res Playback and Popular Voice Control Platforms

August 26, 2019

We are excited to announce that we are expanding our soundbar lineup with two new premium options, the DHT-S516H and DHT-S716H.

Optimized with Denon's century-long legacy of creating great-sounding home theatre and high resolution listening products, the latest soundbars combine 4K HDMI inputs with ARC support for perfect TV connection and operation, class-leading DSP processing, amplification and Hi-Res capabilities with the ease-of-use and form factor of a soundbar.

Building on the great features found in the HEOS Bar and HEOS HomeCinema HS2 soundbars, the latest Denon soundbars both share several sound quality and connectivity improvements. Featuring exceptional Class-D amplification across a variety of performance-tuned drivers, both soundbars provide the ultimate home theatre experience TVs can't deliver on their own. Additionally, the DHT-S716H and DHT-S516H ship with the latest version of HEOS Built-in music streaming and voice control (Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker required). The advanced DHT-S716H creates breathtaking sound from just one unit, and optionally pairs with the Denon DSW-1H (sold separately) for even more seismic bass in big rooms, while the smaller DHT-S516H ships in a set with a dedicated wireless subwoofer for balanced Denon sound. With the ability to support DSD (2.8, 5.6 MHz), FLAC, WAV, ALAC (192/24), MP3, WMA and AAC (USB/Network) on both soundbars, consumers can experience Hi-Res content quickly and easily.

More than just soundbars, both the DHT-S516H and DHT-S716H allow users to experience wireless, whole-home audio with HEOS Built-in. The DHT-S516H also enables consumers to use Apple AirPlay 2. When paired alongside other HEOS built-in AV receivers, soundbars and speakers, users can play the same song everywhere or select different songs for each connected room. HEOS Built-in also enables access to music from several major streaming services, including Amazon Music, Spotify Premium and free, Deezer, TIDAL, TuneIn Internet Radio, and others, for limitless listening.

For the ultimate ease-of-use, both soundbars support major voice assistant platforms, including Google and Amazon. Advanced HDMI inputs allow for features like Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), which dramatically improves the gaming experience when in use. As an added benefit, the DHT-S716H can leverage HEOS speakers, including the HEOS 1, HEOS 3, HEOS 5 and HEOS 7 as rear channels for immersive surround sound in a 5.1 set-up.
