Denon introduced Tuesday the DHT-S216, billed as the company’s first full-range sound bar with DTS Virtual:X.

The Denon DHT-S216 ($249 suggested retail price) features a slender, low-profile design and delivers advanced psychoacoustic algorithms developed by DTS “to realistically simulate a multi-channel soundtrack played on a home theater surround sound system,” the company said.

The DHT-S216 connects to a TV and media player via a 4K UHD HDMI port with Audio Return Channel (ARC) or for added flexibility digital optical/auxiliary inputs.

The sound bar measures 2.35-inches tall, and includes two 3-inch down-firing subwoofers, two 1-3/4 x 3-1/2-inch dual mid-range drivers and two 1-inch tweeters.

The Denon DHT-S216 also features Pure Mode, which eliminates surround processing and removes any adjusted characteristics associated with Movie, Music or Night mode for a more precise and open sound, the company said.

Smartphones or tablets can easily pair with the sound bar via Bluetooth to stream music from music services or music files stored on a network.

The sound bar is easily wall-mountable for placement flexibility.

Other features include Denon Dialog Enhancer that enhances dialog intelligibility with three different modes. Users can also turn up dialog without adjusting overall volume level.

It includes three Preset EQ sound mode options for movie, night, and music.

The addition Dolby Digital decoding and DTS Virtual:X produces immersive surround without the need of additional speakers.
