Denon’s DHT-S517 Affordable Dolby Atmos Soundbar and Sub Package Out Soon
Denon's DHT-S517 is the company's latest Dolby Atmos soundbar and wireless subwoofer package, delivering 3.1.2 channels of fuss-free audio.
Denon's Dolby Atmos DHT-S517 soundbar is packing a seven-speaker array comprising left/right channel tweeters and midrange drivers, a dedicated centre-channel, and two up-firing speakers.
Hooking the DHT-S517 to your telly should be a sinch, thanks to HDMI Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) connectivity and digital optical input. Additionally, there's a 4K UHD HDMI input to connect HDMI sources directly to the soundbar - a handy inclusion if all your TV's ports are already taken up by consoles and the like. Finally, the DHT-S517 also boasts Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music from your mobile.
Furthermore, you get three modes for speech enhancement and dedicated level control for dialogue independent of the rest of the system volume. In addition to those, there are also four general sound modes: Movie Mode, Music Mode, Pure Mode and Night Mode. Pure Mode is taken from Denon's award-winning AVR's, says the company, switches off any unnecessary processing keeping the music signal as pure as possible. Meanwhile, Night Mode limits the volume output while gaining clarity and dynamic range for those moments when you have to finish off that last few episodes, even though everyone else has gone to bed.
The Denon DHT-S517 soundbar and sub comes bundled with HDMI and optical cables for quick and painless set-up and will be available end of January, priced at £379/ €399.
