The Denon HEOS HomeCinema HS2 system is an Alexa-ready Sonos rival

Denon has announced the HEOS HomeCinema HS2, a wireless soundbar and subwoofer system offering 4K UHD capabilities, hi-res audio, and the promise of Amazon Alexa support in the near future. 

It’s loaded with a pair of dual 2 x 5 inch drivers and a pair of 20mm tweeters, optical and HDMI connections to hook it up to your TV, and support for 4K UHD video and high resolution music including FLAC, ALAC, AIFF and DSD formats.

There’s also “improved” AirPlay and Bluetooth connectivity, and Denon says you’ll be able to stream through it using Amazon Alexa voice control, when a firmware update goes out in the summer.

The system can be shelf- or wall-mounted, depending on what’s best for your living room, and Denon has included dialogue enhancer and night mode features too.

Announcing the news in a press release, the company said:

“The new system builds upon the success of the first iteration, with additional 4K UHD capabilities, high-resolution audio, a new sleeker design and improved AirPlay/Bluetooth connectivity. The wireless HEOS HomeCinema HS2 soundbar system effortlessly adds power and depth to your favourite movies, music and games with stunning sound and a sleek new design.”

The Denon HEOS HomeCinema HS2 system is available for £699 via authorised Denon retail partners.

It’s the latest in a line of Denon HEOS products that have generally impressed us, with the original Denon HEOS HomeCinema soundbar and more recent HEOS Bar both proving to be legitimate Sonos Playbar rivals when we tested them.
