Japanese manufacturer Denon announced two new high-end soundbars earlier this year: the DHT-S716H and the DHT-S516H.
The DHT-S716H is a 3.0 channel soundbar designed to offer immersive sound for home theatre enthusiasts. I set it up at home for a few weeks to see if the audio performance measured up to the high price tag.
- Fabric-wrapped design

- 3.0 channels
- Remote included
- Can be voice-controlled using an Amazon Alexa device
- Supports Dolby TrueHD but not Dolby Atmos
- Impressive sound quality

Should you buy it?
Denon's DHT-S716H soundbar offers an impressively deep sound considering it doesn't have a built-in subwoofer, but is it worth the asking price of $1,699?
It depends what you're looking for.
If you're an audiophile with limited space, the DHT-S716H packs a lot in a slim soundbar that you can easily mount on your wall. If you're looking for more bass for your buck, Denon also recently launched the DHT-S516H, a 2.1 channel soundbar and wireless subwoofer combination that retails for $1,699.
