Denon launches new soundbar with built-in subwoofers

Denon has introduced the DHT-S217 full-range Dolby Atmos soundbar, delivering clarity and clear dialogue with authoritative bass response thanks to its two onboard subwoofers.

At just 6.6cm in height, the low-profile Denon DHT-S217 soundbar can be placed in front of the TV without obstructing the bottom edge of the display or it can be wall-mounted.

Incorporating Dolby Atmos, which is coupled with enhanced bass response thanks to dual down-firing subwoofers, matched seamlessly to a pair of high-performance midrange drivers and tweeters, users can enjoy an immersive 3D audio experience. Listeners can also stream their favourite music to the soundbar from a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth.

Using the supplied HDMI or Optical cables, the DHT-S217 easily connects to most TVs, giving users intuitive control over the soundbar’s volume using the TV’s remote. The 4K HDMI connectivity delivers clear video with distinctive contrast, imaging and colours, while the eARC feature enables video and music enthusiasts to enjoy rich audio playback including Dolby Atmos streams on the soundbar from streaming apps built into their smart TV.

The DHT-S217 offers a choice of four sound modes – Movie, Night, Music and Pure – enabling listeners to optimise the sound for different occasions. The Pure Mode bypasses all surround processing and other adjusted characteristics for the most audiophile listening experience.

Featuring the Denon Dialogue Enhancer, listeners can adjust the dialogue level without affecting the overall volume of the content. The Dialogue Enhancer improves dialogue clarity with three different modes, ideal for movies or TV content where dialogue comprehension is paramount.

The availability of the Denon DHT-S217 will vary depending on the region but will start in Japan in late April, followed by all other regions in May with pricing at £249 / €269.
