Denon's long awaited HEOS-branded AV receiver is now shipping. Challenging traditional AVR design, the HEOS receiver features a sleek aluminium chassis carefully crafted to create a statement in a living room. It combines 5.1 channel surround sound with HEOS wireless multiroom music streaming, and supports the use of wireless HEOS speakers for surround channels, creating an interconnect-free system. Naturally, the receiver can also work with a mix of both wired and wireless speakers.

The HEOS AVR is available exclusively to the custom install market via UK distributor AWE.

A cleverly designed HEOS app leads the user through the configuration process to integrate the HEOS AVR into a whole home music system. Additional HEOS speakers can be added to the system at any time, with a few taps on the HEOS app. Users can play different music in every room, or bring the whole house together for a party, playing the same tune in every room. Six Quick Select presets are provided for favourite functions, and music can be streamed directly from phones or tablets via Bluetooth.

All four HDMI inputs are compatible with the latest 4K TV, Blu-ray and online video streaming sources. The ability to learn TV remote commands makes operation of the home cinema intuitive, with main AVR functions available from the TV handset. The receiver uses five 100W Class D amplifiers. 

Supported streaming music services include Napster, Spotify Connect and Tidal.
