Denon DHT-S514

 

Good audio with a powerful subwoofer, but dialogue and higher frequencies can get a little lost

Denon DHT-S514

 

Bring big, beefy sound into your living room with Denon's soundbar and sub

Big weighty sound adds drama and scale, Solid construction, Good connections and features

Dialogue could be clearer, Some rivals offer a smoother, subtler listen

Denon DHT-S514 Soundbar Review

 

Denon's new soundbar and wireless subwoofer package proves a highly competent all-rounder, with some very impressive bass. Mark Hodgkinson gives you...

Crisp and Clear mid and high notes ; Satisfying low end ; Performs well at low volume levels ; Remote Learning ; IR Repeater is a plus

Maybe a tad bright for some ; Speaker bar gets quite hot

You can have the Denon DHT-S514 soundbar package in any colour you like, provided it’s black. We’ve no problem with that - it’s never going to clash or look outdated and nor will its simple and subtly rounded-off design. Most importantly it feels and...

Denon DHT-S514 sound bar review: A disappointing effort from a noted speaker manufacturer

 

We've seen some fine audio products from Denon; unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

Includes copious cables, including an IR blaster ; Minimalist remote looks nice on the table ; Adjustable feet gives you flexibility in placement

Generally poor audio quality all around ; Cryptic remote and status lights ; No subwoofer control via remote

Denon is one of the best names in audio, but this sound bar is not one of its better speakers.

Denon DHT-S514 review

 

Those looking for a sound bar with power, detail, and dynamic chops should consider the DHT-S514 a top choice.

Denon’s DHT-S514 has both the brawn and the brilliance to elevate the sound of your home theater to the next level. It may not look flashy, and we lament its lack of a digital display for a $600 device, but its performance approaches the big sound...

Denon DHT-S514 Soundbar Review

 

Television soundbars are all the rage today, and for good reason. They allow you to enjoy high fidelity sound -- without a bank of front, right, center, and rear channel speakers -- in a tight space. Soundbar technology advancements have been...

Denon DHT-S514 sound bar and wireless subwoofer review

 

TV's are getting thinner but one thing that's suffering is the sound quality but Denon's new DHT-S514 can dramatically improve the audio experience.

The Denon DHT-S514 sound bar is an excellent addition to your flatscreen TV that will bring the audio quality to a level that will truly enhance your viewing experience.

Denon DHT-S514 soundbar REVIEW

 

Music and movie sound from an unobtrusive bar in front of your TV, plus a wireless subwoofer. Can Denon deliver the goods?

Consumer review by: Amanda (reevoo.com)

Denon DHT-S514

 

I bought this mainly for volume, owing to about 20 neighbour kids hanging round in the street every summer, and I wasn't disappointed. It can produce a lot of noise :) But the sound quality is also excellent - I can hear a clock ticking on a DVD film...

Ease of use: it does other tricks but they're not obvious from the buttons on the remote. As with my Denon hifi, I'll have to refer to the handbook.
