Denon HEOS 5 HS2 Multi-room speaker in White - £199 (normally £349) at Amazon (Prime Members Only)

Found 3rd Dec 2016
HEOS 5 speaker gets lots of good reviews - current price everywhere else is currently £349 ish so a saving of £150. The new HS2 speakers have support for high resolution audio and has bluetooth and is compatible with older HS1 speakers. Denon are working with Amazon to ensure Echo voice commands integrate with the HEOS system from 2017

The downside? Only available in White at this price, only available to Prime Members at the discounted price and temporarily out of stock.

why cold this an awesome deal

i have prime but it shows 349 how?

No idea why cold, this is a smoking hot deal. I'm invested in Sonos however, I would seriously look at this if not...

Reviewers have said the app platform is unstable and pretty rubbish! Good speakers though.

Got one , hopefully arrives before Christmas

Bargain btw . Hopefully gets more heat

To balance out the reviews... I have it built into my amp and then a heos hs2 7 in the kitchen. I too struggled at first, the software isn't as good as sonos and a key missing feature is the universal search. Having moved everything onto hard wired there are no issues what so ever now though, but I haven't tinkered with it since to see if I could improve it over wifi. Sadly that defeats the purpose of these speakers if you aren't in the fortunate position of have cat 6 around your house. The sound is by far the best out of these streaming platforms and early next year you will be able to control it with amazons Alexa. I'm not sure the software will ever catch up but playing flac around the house is amazing and once voice controls are here the app will become less important. D&m are serious about this platform though and with such good reviews from critics hopefully that put more resources into it.

On an aesthetic point, I normally don't like white goods, but they look really good and and are a beautiful, quirky shape compared to other square boxes. Richer sounds have them on the shelf if people need to see what they look like before you buy.

This is a bargain price and should have a lot more heat than its getting. The heos range numbering aren't comparable to sonos and beat the acoustically across the board.

Thanks for the positive comments folks. To be honest I'm not expecting this to get much heat. Most people probably will not have heard of Heos speakers but I posted this in the hope that someone with a Heos system might be interested.

Just bought a couple Heos 1 speakers (currently £269 a pair) so thought this would go nicely with them.

Let us know how you get on with the pair of heos 1. I am thinking of going that way myself, along with a battery pack. Just can't find many reviews, especially of the latest version. Really don't know which way to go - sonos, denon or a good Bluetooth speaker with Chromecast!!

I['ve got it built in to my Denon AVR-X2200W or at least I think I do. Do you still need to buy the HEOS Link or can you operate it from the av receiver?

Hi, I've just looked your model up and as its last years it seems it isn't fully integrated like it is now. You will need a link:

Edit: still currently available at this price but I've yet to have a firm delivery date.

Here it is in their manual:

Cheers for that

Good reduction but I doubt heos will last very long, imo sonos is still very much the safest bet. They look great though.

Decided to cancel my order and buy the Heos Link and use av receiver speakers instead. Was unable to cancel as they are dispatching my order. Looks like they are honouring the price....

Hopefully , if not dispatched by Monday will have to cancel my order and probably just go for a play 1

Can't believe this is cold! I've just bought a Heos 7 for my main living room and it's awesome, I've ordered this for the kitchen as it's an unbelievable price. Currently not in stock but they'll despatch when available.

They have at least one - they tried to deliver mine on saturday but I sent it back because I'll probably buy the link instead....

I had a Heos 3 which sounded great but I got rid of it about a year ago due to it not supporting Google Play Music or Amazon Prime Music. I don't know if things have changed since then.

I just checked with Denon and they have everything in place for the UK Amazon site (the US one already works) and are just waiting on Amazon to finalize things.

Amazon sent out the new Bluetooth version ☺
