"As television manufacturers develop ever thinner screens with high resolution display and excellent picture quality, the space available for the speakers has decreased significantly and the sonic experience has been sacrificed, said Denon President Trip Randall. With our all-new Denon Soundbar, you'll immediately enhance your Home Theater experience with superior 3D sound and find that all of your viewing experiences improve exponentially. It took a historic brand like Denon to be able to offer this kind of spectacular and immersive sound, simple setup and use, and full compatibility with any TV.”
