Denon and Marantz’s 2017 AV receivers all have HEOS multiroom skills – prices and dates

Denon and Marantz have unveiled their AV receivers for 2017, and they come packing a bunch of features, with the most exciting development being that every one is compatible with HEOS.

HEOS is a wireless multiroom audio system. Until recently, it has been limited to small speakers – not unlike Sonos – but it’s expanding to soundbars and subwoofers.

Now HEOS is transitioning from a brand into an ingredient in Denon and Marantz AV receivers, and that’s good news for anyone who wants to expand their home cinema set up and play music elsewhere in the home.

Even better news is that you don’t need to splash out for a top-end unit to do that, as HEOS is supported throughout the entire range.
