How to get the best bass out of your Denon Home speaker

How to find the perfect headphones for your holidays

At the beginning of 2020, Denon launched three brand new wireless speakers called Denon Home 150, Denon Home 250 and Denon Home 350 which all feature HEOS Built-in. These speakers bring music to any room in your home, with total ease-of-use, access to almost unlimited music sources, and impressive acoustic performance, based on the company’s 110 years of sound innovation.

 

Bass is a question of taste

Like with food, wine or cars, tastes are different in music as well, and some people enjoy more bass with their music than others. But be careful, bass is very much dependent on the placement of a speaker in your room. The same speaker playing the same track can sound totally different in every room, not only because of the size and shape of the room, or what kind of furniture or other interior pieces are in there. It is also very important where the speaker is placed. Very close positioning to a corner will make the bass bounce back immediately (and stronger), which some might like, while others consider it to be too boomy. When a speaker is kind of far away from any wall, the bass might get lost and the sound is too thin.

How Denon Home achieves the perfect bass response

If you either want to compensate for the characteristics of your room, the placement of your speaker, or if you want to adjust the bass to your own personal taste, in addition to the standard Bass adjustments Denon Home now has an easy way to make this happen: an automatic Bass Equalizer that adjusts the very deep bass. Once you update the HEOS App, you will find a new option in the settings menu named “Placement”,when you select “Settings” à “My Devices” à “Denon Home”. This can then be used to optimize the deep bass response of any Denon Home speaker in your home. You have the choice between three options according to the placement of your Denon Home speaker:

  • Freestanding
  • Near to one wall or on the shelf
  • In the corner

Even more convenient: Thanks to powerful audio processing just play one of your favourite tracks that should serve as a benchmark for your bass taste, go to the Placement settings and adjust the bass response on the fly. Unlike typical Room EQ systems you can compare the results of each of the three options while listening. You can of course change the settings anytime you like. Once you gifted yourself another Denon Home speaker, this process will also be part of the overall setup.
