Denon Home speakers, Alexa update and 5.1 surround sound

A recent update adds new features to the Denon Home 150, 250, 350 and Denon Home Sound Bar 550 speakers.

The latest U26 firmware update for Denon Home wireless speakers brings two new functions: compatibility with the Amazon Alexa voice assistant and the possibility of forming a 5.1 Home Cinema set.

5.1 Home Cinema Configuration

Thus, the Denon Home 150, 250, 350 references and the Denon Home Sound Bar 550 3.0 sound bar integrate the Alexa voice assistant, for remote and voice control. In addition, two Denon Home can now be combined with the Sound Bar 550 to act as wireless rear speakers and thus constitute a surround system. A Denon DSW-1H subwoofer can be added to switch to a true 5.1 configuration.

Update of the Heos app

Finally, note that, thanks to the integration of a new DSP, the Denon Home Sound Bar 550 now delivers more precise, faster and better controlled bass for music and movies. Last precision, the Heos application is also getting a new look with a new look and improved ego.
