Denon HEOS: What is it and How does it work?

Denon HEOS: What is it and How does it work?

HEOS Hi-Fi Wireless Multi-Room Sound System

HEOS (Home Entertainment Operating System) is a wireless multi-room audio system developed by Denon Electronics. It’s featured on select wireless speakers, receivers and soundbars from both Denon and Marantz products. Connect this app to your existing Wi-fi home network and you are good to go!

HEOS allows you to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet, or computer to multiple HEOS speakers throughout your home, creating a whole-home audio system.

HEOS supports various streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Tidal, and many more. Additionally, HEOS speakers can be controlled using the HEOS app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. HEOS also supports high-resolution audio playback, and some models feature built-in voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

The free HEOS mobile app makes it easy. Whether you start with a single HEOS speaker or a full-blown home theater system, HEOS is made to grow with you.

Hi-Res Audio Support

HEOS doesn’t cut corners when it comes to quality sound. To deliver the clearest audio wirelessly, HEOS supports uncompressed WAV, ALAC, FLAC music files up to 24-bit/192-kHz.

Clear Stereo Sound

When listening to two speakers at the same time, every note and lyric should be synchronized — no delays, no echo. HEOS speakers have audiophile grade synchronization to ensure your music is nothing short of excellent

Reliable Wi-Fi & Bluetooth

HEOS connects to your home’s Wi-Fi network and uses dual-band Wi-Fi to give you the most reliable, consistent connection possible. For even more convenience, anyone can play music from a Bluetooth-enabled device.

HEOS and Alexa

HEOS works with your Amazon Alexa! Some HEOS speakers come with built-in Alexa voice control, while others require an external Amazon Alexa device such as an Amazon Echo or Dot. With Alexa, you can use voice commands to play, pause, skip tracks, adjust the volume, and so much more! You can also control your HEOS system using the Alexa app on your smart device. To use Alexa with HEOS, you need to enable the HEOS skill in the Alexa app and link your HEOS account. Once linked, you can ask Alexa to play music on your HEOS speakers using voice commands

The HEOS App

Easily set up HEOS speakers and play music from almost any source, from streaming services to Bluetooth-enabled devices. With just a few taps in the app, everyone in the house can listen to a different song or the same song. Play Bruno Mars from a computer in the kitchen, T-Swift from a smartphone in the family room — even a Spa Spotify playlist in the bathroom. 

The app’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to listen to what you want, where you want. Drag, drop, and pinch music blocks to create simple shortcuts and change audio settings. Adjust the speaker’s volume, set up stereo pairing, and more. Everything is easy to access within the app’s 3 tabs:
