High Performance Sound
Insert Alt Text here

Featuring 175 watts of total system power, the DHT-S514 soundbar and wireless subwoofer together deliver true high fidelity sound with any TV for an enthralling listening experience. As flat panel TVs get thinner and thinner, so does their sound quality, and the DHT-S514 features a host of high performance components to deliver rich, enveloping wide range sound. The soundbar features dual 2"x5" precision drivers that reproduce the upper bass and midrange audio, delivering clear audio especially in the vocal range. There are also dual ½" dome tweeters that reproduce the entire treble range, with response extending to 20 kHz.

The matching wireless subwoofer features dual 5¼" woofers that work in tandem to deliver the authoritative deep bass found in movie and music soundtracks for distortion-free bass at any listening level. The compact subwoofer can be placed horizontally or vertically for the widest range of installation options.

Both the soundbar and the subwoofer feature digital audio amplification that delivers crystal clear sound along with wide dynamic range, as well as providing high energy efficiency and operational stability for long life.

Wide Range of Connectivity Options

Many TVs come with one of the HDMI inputs equipped with Audio Return Channel (ARC), which lets you listen to audio from a source device (such as a cable or satellite box) as well as being able to listen to audio from the TV's internal tuner or from a smart TV's built-in content streaming capabilities. Simply connect the DHT-S514 to your TV with the supplied HDMI cable, and you can enjoy audio from your set-top box as well as enjoying audio from the TV. For TVs without ARC, you can connect the DHT-S514 via one of the two available digital audio connections — both optical and coaxial digital audio inputs are provided.

You can also stream music wirelessly right to the DHT-S514 from a compatible Bluetooth device, such as a smartphone, tablet or computer (with Bluetooth A2DP capability). AptX is also included, allowing for high quality music playback through Bluetooth. Additionally, there is a stereo analog (RCA) input jack that lets you connect the DHT-S514 to a portable music player, smartphone or tablet.

The auto input switching feature chooses the best available audio source automatically.

Easy to Install, Easy to Setup, Easy to Use

Connect the DHT-S514 directly to your TV with the included HDMI cable. An optical digital audio cable and a stereo analog audio cable are also included.

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. For further installation flexibility, the soundbar comes with two sets of feet with different heights, which lets you use the soundbar with a wide range of TV stand types. If you prefer wall mounting, the soundbar features built-in keyholes that let you easily mount the soundbar directly to the wall.

Dolby Digital and DTS Decoding

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 psychoacoustic algorithms that simulate the surround sound of a multi-channel home theater speaker system.

3 Listening Modes

In addition to the Movie Surround Sound mode which provides an expansive and enveloping soundstage, the DHT-S514 features two additional custom sound modes tailored for different content. The Dialog Enhancer mode provides increased dialog clarity especially with complex movie soundtracks, and the Music mode delivers a dynamic and enthralling sound quality improvement with your favorite audio tracks. You can also choose to listen in pure stereo mode, with no additional acoustic enhancement.

Night Mode

The DHT-S514 also features Night Mode which lets you enjoy high fidelity sound without annoying jumps in volume, so you can watch your favorite programs late into the night without disturbing other family members. The Night Mode can be activated in stereo mode, as well as with any of the three available custom sound modes.

Purchased this new model after researching various brands. Looks attractive and well made. I have it paired up with 42" Sony Bravia for now, despite it's suitability to 46" plus sets, it fits well now and gives me some future proofing when the set is repalced in the future. Set up very simple, worked without any hick ups. All necessay cables suplied. HDMI a little short, for my particular set up, but have ordered a longer cable to allow me to run it where I want to, minor issue.
"Wakes up" when TV switches on, so no messing around switching on seperate systems and selecting speaker systems. Simple to "teach" existing remore to operate volume.
Very impressed with performance in various TV modes to suit speech, music, films. Bloutooth works well, easy to pair up with my smartphone and replay music files very well. Very impressed with this system, highly recommended!

This is a superb product, which is amazing for the price. Setting up was a doddle, simply power on the sub and the speaker and they connect automatically with a green LED indicating it has completed (the sub is wireless).

The remote is very simple and easy to use providing you with all the options you need. You can easily program in other remote controls (I used my Sky control) to adjust volume and the like.

The sound quality is simply superb, and you can choose from several sound types depending on what you are watching - movies, music, tv e.t.c.

The sound bar comes with two sets of feet (different heights) or you can mount it to the wall very easily.

Highly recommended product.

So.... For many years Iv been an avid Bose fan owning both an Acoustimass system then most recently a Cinemate system. Iv been very happy with systems until one day I was sat listening to music and really noticed how anemic the sound is. There's no highs and no real bass as such.
I started shopping about for a simple home cinema set ups and came across the Denon Soundbar. I looked at YouTube videos, consumer and critic reviews and made the purchase thinking it will be a safe bet.

Firstly simple set up, subwoofer connects wirelessly and one connection between the tv and soundbar.
I feel I well and truly upgraded from my Bose Cinemate system. The sound is simply magnificent for this price point. As with most Denon products the sound is very warm but clear and musical. Many reviews have commented on the LED lights used to differentiate between Bluetooth and TV mode and the different listening modes, to me they are so logical and couldn't be clearer.

Sound in both film and music is fantastic, I have spent many years touring dance theatre and no a reasonable amount about good sound. This thing is a beaut, wonderful crisp highs, full and rich mid range supported by a thunderous bass. It has a gift of making music sparkle through the room with an impressive soundstage. The subwoofer seems to have an unlimited amount of power. It's warm, detailed, not foggy or boomy but precise and effortlessly thunderous which wraps you up in fuzzy emphatic bass.
Both the soundbar and sub blend very well to create a very full, wide and rich sound stage from a small footprint.

100% recommend this piece of kit.

I was a little apprehensive going from a 5.1 surround sound to a sound bar. I did loads of research and subscribed to a testing magazine which didn't rate it the best (they rated Sonos). But an alternative reviews website rated it the best, so I went with that based on the review and also a review on Richer Sounds website for the previous model (this one can only be better) and also power, watts etc. and that it doesn't have to be remotely accessed with an I phone or I pad like the Sonos (how does anyone staying in the house use it if we go out with our phones!?).
I am very happy with it, sound is crystal clear, no distorsion on a high volume and also no vibrations on the tv unit. We have a 2007 Samsung plasma and we ended up connecting it with the 3.5mm stereo lead only (2nd wire not needed), it was the only was to get sound from it and for it to not go silent when using the sky + remote to change channels etc. Instructions are good, process of elimination with 5 ways to wire it up (all leads supplied). Manual for it can be found online prior to purchase so you can learn which way to wire it up to your TV. Only a mains lead and 1 or 2 of the supplied leads needed. And no speaker wires around the room for the puppy to chew, again!!

Excellent sound quality. Couldn't get it to work with multiple HDMI inputs with HDMI back from the soundbar to HDMI 3 on our Samsung TV though so had to just use optical output from TV to the soundbar in the end. One HDMI input one HDMI output worked fine too so not sure whether it was something I did wrong (maybe TV setting though I changed what I thought I needed to).
Quality and ease of control form smartphone/iPad etc via Bluetooth was great too.

I bought this in Amazon's Lightning deals for £199 along with three other sound bars to test them against each other.

This one was by far the best one. The sounds quality is amazing and the Bass from the sub is deep and clear. Very easy to set up, even my 6 year old worked out how to connect his iPad via bluetooth.

All in all would def recommend this.
