CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 20, 2022)— Today Denon®, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium home entertainment and personal audio products since 1910, introduced the DHT-S517 sound bar and wireless subwoofer system, which delivers cinematic Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound. The DHT-S517 was precision-engineered and finely tuned by the Denon Sound Masters to deliver enhanced bass, crystal clear dialogue and enveloping sound from a sleek, 3.1.2 configuration.

Built by the market leader in AV receivers, the Denon DHT-S517 sound bar with Dolby Atmos transforms any TV into a home entertainment center. The Denon DHT-S517 utilizes a powerful 7-driver array, comprised of left/right channel tweeters and midrange drivers, a dedicated center-channel, plus two up-firing speakers. Working together with the wireless subwoofer, this configuration delivers unmatched clarity, dynamics and cinematic dimensionality. Entertainment enthusiasts will appreciate a thrilling, lifelike Dolby Atmos listening experience that includes an expansive soundstage, authoritative bass and startlingly clear dialogue perfect for the latest music, movies and games.

“While TV manufactures have developed thinner and thinner screens with high resolution and great picture quality, space for speakers has notably diminished, resulting in a sacrificed sound experience,” said Denon President, Trip Randall. “With our newest Denon sound bar, you’ll immediately boost your home theater experience to upgraded 3D sound and will find your viewing experience makes exponential leaps forward for the better. It takes a legacy brand like Denon to deliver this kind of spectacular, immersive sound, all with an easy-to-use set-up that is compatible with any TV.”

Easy to Use and Universally Compatible
The Denon DHT-S517 works seamlessly with any TV set-up. With the included HDMI cable, audio from any smart TV or other compatible source is sent to the sound bar via the HDMI Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) feature. Users will enjoy effortless control of the sound bar volume via their TV remote. Non-HDMI ARC TVs can also be connected through the digital optical input.
