Denon DHT-S514 Powered Home Theater Sound Bar With Wireless Subwoofer – B-Stock
Denon DHT-S514 home theater soundbar speaker system will transform your flat-panel TV into a home entertainment system which will envelop you in rich, room-filling sound; delivering deep bass from its wireless subwoofer and clear mids and detailed highs from its multi-driver high-fidelity soundbar. Simple to set up and easy to use, the DHT-S514 lets you enjoy powerful, dynamic audio from your favorite TV shows, movies, games, and music.
Dolby Digital/DTS Decoding w/ Virtual Surround Sound
Your favorite movies and music will come alive with built-in Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, and you can enjoy enveloping surround sound thanks to Denon’s exclusive Virtual Surround processing, which uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms that simulate the surround sound of a multi-channel home theater speaker system. Denon’s Virtual Surround offers several Listening modes to tailor the system to your content.
Digital & Analog Inputs (including HDMI)
Denon DHT-S514 home theater soundbar speaker system offers a variety of digital & analog inputs to connect to your TV and AV gear; including HDMI, optical/coaxial digital, and analog stereo minijack. All inputs are all selected by the television button on DHT-S514’s front-panel or remote, but which is active is determined by auto-priority. If only one input is receiving a signal, that input will play. If more than one input is receiving a signal, the order of priority is HDMI, Digital Optical, Digital Coaxial, and Analog.
Bluetooth (2.1+EDR) Audio Streaming
You can also stream music wirelessly right to the DHT-S514 from a compatible Bluetooth-enabled device; such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer (with Bluetooth A2DP capability). You’ll be able to stream stored music and music apps on your mobile device (like iPhone, Android, and Blackberry). Denon also included aptX which allows for high quality music playback through Bluetooth. aptX provides CD-quality audio streaming from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device (on newer Android devices). You will continue to use your mobile device to navigate your music and to view song/artist information.
The DHT-S514 comes with its own remote control, and it also has the ability to work with your existing TV’s remote control so you can control the soundbar and your TV with just one remote. For compatibility with the broadest range of TV types and styles, the DHT-S514 features the ability to re-transmit IR codes via the included IR repeater, which lets you properly position the soundbar in front of your TV and yet still easily control both the DHT-S514 and the TV.
The soundbar of the DHT-S514 should be placed as close as possible to the television screen. It should be centered left-to-right with the screen, and ideally no more than a few inches above or below. The most common location is below the screen. Sometimes this location can be difficult, because the base of the TV gets in the way. The DHT-S514 has two sets of feet (0.75″ & 1.25″ high) that raise the soundbar speaker off the shelf, for a more stable and attractive installation when used with this type of television. If you prefer wall mounting, the soundbar features built-in keyholes that let you easily mount the soundbar directly to the wall (template included).
You can place the wireless powered subwoofer practically anywhere in the room; within a wireless range of 8 meters. For the best sound, place the subwoofer near a wall or corner, within 6 meters of the soundbar speaker, and on the same side of the room as the soundbar. This compact subwoofer can be placed horizontally or vertically for the widest range of installation options. Attach the supplied non-slip stickers to the subwoofer for hardwood and tile flooring. The port on the back of the subwoofer cabinet should be unobstructed.
Auto Power Modes
DHT-S514 will automatically “wake-up” whenever any of its wired inputs receives an audio signal. Simply turning on your television will also turn on DHT-S514. For Bluetooth playback you will need to turn on DHT-S514 manually using the remote control or top-panel power button. The system will also automatically turn off it it does not sense an audio signal for approximately five minutes.
