Denon's DHT-S514 home theater soundbar speaker system will envelop you in rich, room-filling sound. Simple to set up and easy to use, the DHT-S514 transforms any TV into a home entertainment system, delivering truly wide range response including deep bass from the wireless subwoofer and clear mids and detailed highs from the multi-driver high fidelity soundbar.

It's also equipped with aptX Bluetooth, which provides CD-quality audio streaming from your Bluetooth-equipped portable audio device, smartphone and tablet.


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.

For the price, you'd expect it to be even more - and I got this in a Black Friday deal. The sound quality & bass from the subwoofer is second to none. Makes watching movies almost a cinema experience. Only thing I have a deal with is the remote can be quite tricky to be picked up by the bar - have to press the button a fair number of times before the action is given. Also what mode you are on (music, movie or speech) needs to be more clearer.

The quality of this unit is beyond poor. I've setup numerous home theatres and never before have I had so many issues trying to get receivers to communicate reliably with the unit over HDMI. We've swapped cables, changed receivers and still the unit randomly fails to detect the receiver and sometimes just switches itself off. The solution is to physically unplug it and reconnect it and then it works for another day or two before failing. Contacted Denon who brushed it off as the component manufacturers fault even after we tested several different receivers and cables. This is the 4th soundbar I've installed and its by far the worst experience I've had. The sound is on par with similar sound bars in this price range. Definitely wait for a new revision of this product before purchasing (or if there is some way for Denon to upgrade the firmware that could solve many issues).
