    Great soundbar but there are better and cheaper

    S. De Boer | 23 March 2021 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    A top device in terms of ease of use. The soundbar simply does its thing and it is almost impossible to go wrong. The operation via the app is also easy to follow for a layman.
    The sound is good. In my experience, however, the full tones only come in at a slightly louder volume.

    Simple speaker with good sound

    Martijn | 14 March 2021 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    Received the Denon Home 550 soundbar and unpacked it immediately. Connecting was no problem because all necessary cables are included in the box. Connect the soundbar to the television quickly and easily via the HDMI (ARC) cable. With the HEOS application, the speaker can easily be connected to the WiFi and updated to the latest software version.

    This soundbar looks nice. The top prevents reflection and in the middle is a smart display with a proximity sensor. As soon as I move my hand towards it, the screen lights up.

    The sound of the Denon home 550 is good and can be adjusted to taste. This can be done quickly via the self-configured quick buttons on the remote control, there are three in total. Or expanded via the application. The soundbar also has a dialogue improvement and a night mode.

    Despite the fact that the sound is good, it remains a soundbar. For an optimal surround experience, I would also connect two rear speakers. Especially in larger rooms.

    Top design, good sound

    Been looking for a soundbar for years, but one that is beautiful and of course delivers good sound. This is one that actually looks good everywhere.
    It is of course primarily about the sound and it is precisely on that point that I am not completely convinced. I have to say that I go from a dolby surround set from Harman Kardon (5.1) to this soundbar without a woofer. The set is 8 years old, but unfortunately the sound is equivalent, if not better. I don't think it's quite a fair comparison and I probably had too high expectations.
    I just miss the real dark tones, although it performs surprisingly well for a compact soundbar without a woofer. The sound remains a bit dull at all settings, as if the highs are at the expense of the mids and lows. I have now found a setting (pure), which makes the soundbar quite fine. However, I had expected a more spacious Dolby Atmos experience.
    I don't think the app is very logical and looks outdated, but if you know how to find your way, you can adjust enough.
    The connection options are excellent (arc, wifi, lan, buetooth, airplay 2) and I like that the keys are on top of the soundbar.
    Nice addition that they light up when you come close with your hand. So far a soundbar with good performance, but I have to say that I (perhaps wrongly) expected more from it.

    Good soundbar with additional speakers

    The Denon Home Soundbar 550 is a good soundbar with enough power for a TV in the living room or bedroom. Connection to the soundbar is reliable and very easy to establish via Bluetooth or AirPlay. You also never have to turn on the soundbar before you want to connect to it, which makes it easy to use. As someone who attaches great importance to sound with both music and TV, I am very satisfied with the sound quality of this soundbar. The highs, mids and lows just sound good. The bass and treble can of course be adjusted yourself and this also sounds downright good. However, I can strongly recommend buying this soundbar with the available additional speakers to create a surround sound. The soundbar itself is good, just not exceptional. With additional speakers, this soundbar will fit very well in your bedroom or living room, the sound is expected to be complete. I myself have not had these speakers. Finally, the soundbar sometimes needs a moment when you just turn on the TV or switch between music via Airplay/Bluetooth. After about 5-10 seconds you will have sound.

    The soundbar is not long, but slightly higher than other soundbars, keep this in mind if the TV is not too high from the TV cabinet. The soundbar does not make any noise when not in use, I find this very important since I am somewhat sensitive to high beeps that you sometimes have with sound systems that are 'off'.

    Denon Home Soundbar 550: soundbar for every living room

    The Denon Home Soundbar 550 is a compact soundbar that fits in any living room. Despite the compact size, the sound quality surprises me, which is ideal for TV, movies, series and music. Only I miss a subwoofer that reproduces the lowest tones.

    Compact size
    When unpacking the soundbar, I immediately notice that it has a compact size. Due to its light weight, I can easily take it out of the box and place it on my TV cabinet. It fits exactly between the TV stand and takes up little space. This is ideal, because this makes the bar suitable for every living room.

    Easy installation
    Installing the soundbar is very easy. I connect the bar to my television via the supplied HDMI cable. I download the HEOS app on my phone, after which I see the installation process step by step. The soundbar is ready for use within minutes.

    Spatial sound
    When the soundbar is installed, I immediately watch a movie via Netflix. The bar has Dolby Atmos, so I choose a movie that supports this technology. To fully enjoy Dolby Atmos, you actually need rear speakers. Not necessarily at this bar. I can hear the Dolby Atmos sound that this compact device produces from the left, right and above me. I only regret that no subwoofer is included for an extra powerful sound.

    Ideal for TV, movies, series and music.
    The sound also sounds spatial with content that does not support Dolby Atmos. In the aforementioned app, I choose from several sound modes. This ensures that I listen to the right sound in every situation. While watching TV I go for 'dialog improvements' and set it on high. Voices now sound clear and loud, eliminating the need to turn up the volume. When I'm done watching TV, I stream music via WiFi, Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay. In the app, I choose from many different music services, so I always play my favorite playlists. My only regret is that the app looks outdated.

    Excellent experience and experience

    What a picture this is, just a nice and sleek design, which you can also expect from Denon of course. Fortunately, they also make this more than worth it with the soundbar.

    After unpacking and having given the soundbar a place, we proceed to connecting. Here too, just tip-top, plug and play. Everything you need in terms of connections is there. HDMI/arc, optical, for your internet connection wireless options or via an Ethernet connection.

    design and design - check
    connect - check

    Now what matters in the end, turning it on, turning the volume on 'neighbor bullying' and let's see what we're going to experience.
    Yes, sound quality, experience with Dolby Atmos, 3d audio technology, everything thunders from 1 beautifully shaped soundbar. Super tour de force in quality and technology, very special to experience this.

    Do realize that it is only a soundbar, despite all the pluses that you can expect and can come up with are discussed with this Denon, and those are really a lot of pluses, but you don't have a subwoofer next to it yet. Don't be afraid, because of course you can just add a nice Denon soundbar and possibly some smaller home speakers via Heos Built-in for a dynamic Denon surround sound and extra bass to realize your home cinema.

    All in all, a success for every sound lover, so don't hesitate when you see this beautiful soundbar. Put some extra money in 2 rear speakers from Denon, Home sound speakers (150-250-350) and, for example, the Denon DSW-1H subwoofer.

    Top soundbar

    This soundbar has been in the house for a few weeks now. And from the first moment he just really likes it. I chose this model because it is nicely compact. It fits very nicely half under the TV. This soundbar is only 7 cm high. Installation was very simple and fast. Within a few minutes everything worked perfectly. From that moment on it was mostly fun. And blow it he can. What a beautiful and sleek base this speaker has. As far as I'm concerned, a subwoofer is completely unnecessary. Until now I have never missed him. The sound is just great. You can also enjoy the Dolby Atmos while watching a movie. This works very well. You really have the idea that there are several speakers in the room. In short, I am very satisfied and can certainly recommend this product.
