Denon have recently announced the launch of their very own TV Speaker Base, titled ‘DHT-T100‘.
The speaker base has aptX Bluetooth integrated, which enables wireless music streaming from compatible computers, smartphones and tablets – but also includes a 3.5mm jack input for devices that don’t have Bluetooth. This makes the unit an ideal companion for both TV audio, and music audio situations. It’s easily connected to your television, through either a coaxial or optical wire – however, it does not feature a HDMI port.
The DHT-T100 is said to give your television ‘the sound it deserves’ with its on-board decoder and five different listening modes, as well as Denon’s personal Virtual Surround mode, which makes an attempt in replicating the stereo field of a surround sound speaker set-up.
The DHT-T100 also has dual 2″x5″ oval drivers, and dual 0.5″ dome tweeters as well as two bass ports at the back of the base. The base also makes use of five pre-set listening modes, including a ‘Night Mode’ which makes sure the high sound quality doesn’t deteriate when being played at a low volume.
Denon claim that the speaker base is slightly over 60cm wide, 7cm high and has a depth of 35.5cm. It can support televisions up to 50 inches, and carry a hefty 27kg weight limit and is easily installed within a matter of minutes. It also utilises a learning remote control for manipulating and controlling your television (as well as the sound-base)
We were deming KEF R300 speakers with Arcam A19 amplifier with Arcam CD17 today, a lovely sounding combo – our customer agreed but wanted to hear some vinyl playing through this system, so we added a Project Debut Carbon with Ortofon 2M red cartridge, a great value package at £299, and available in a range of funky and not so funky colours.
We are really happy to have recently been appointed Naim Audio dealers for West of England and Midlands – demo stock is slowly arriving in store, here you can see the lovely CD 5Si Cd player bedding in – putting a good 50 hours use into Naim products is well worthwhile to get 100% of the available performance.
David Johnston, aka Sales and Loudspeaker guru from Proac, recently treated us to an afternoon of musical delight courtesy of the brand new D30R tower speakers, using a very advanced ribbon tweeter unit. Sounding sublime with the partnering Musical Fidelity M6 series CD and amp, together with Chord Odyssey 2 speaker cable, we were only too happy to order our demo pair of D30R’s in real cherry veneer.
