Something you must know about our family is that we love to be out on the back deck, cooking on the grill and jamming to music. My husband loves nothing more than after a long day at work, to come home, fire up the charcoal grill and blast some of his favorite music on his portable bluetooth speaker. This has been a tradition all summer and something we look forward to every evening as a family. In general my husband just loves having music on all of the time and that bluetooth speaker makes it’s way from room to room quite frequently. Then when his is in the car he has his cell phone hooked up to it so that he can stream all of his iTunes songs while driving. This had been working out very well most of the summer, but I knew that it was time to upgrade to something bigger and better… something that could enhance his home entertainment experience! So you can only imagine how ecstatic I was to discover that one of our favorite Stores was now offering a selection of high quality speakers that would bring our backyard entertainment to a whole new level.
Here’s An Up Close Look At All of the Denon HEOS 5 Wireless Speaker Features:
Now my husband is a hard man to please when it comes to birthday gifts and I probably spend more time trying to find him the best gift than anyone else in my life. It just so happened that the Denon HEOS 5 Wireless Speaker arrived around his birthday and the kids and I could not wait to gift it to him. Upon opening it he instantly recognized the brand and knew that it was going to be excellent. However, after downloading the free HEOS app and plugging in the speaker out at the back deck, he was completely blown away by how amazing the sound was. The sound was so crisp, clear and loud and my husband found that the speaker exceeded his expectations. Over the next few weeks he has literally had this speaker by his side wherever he goes around the house and I’m quite confident we are having more back yard BBQs because of how much he enjoys using the speaker outdoors. The other night we put the cars out in the driveway for a cleaning and my husband hooked the speaker up in the garage. This was a really simple but fun family activity, there were smiles on everyone’s faces as we cleaned the cars and jammed out to music. This speaker has truly been a great item to have around and has allowed our family to create so many wonderful memories this summer.
What is really nice about the speaker is the free HEOS app which allows you to stream music from your favorite apps, all in one convenient place. Whether you feel like rocking out to your favorite Pandora station, or want to enjoy your latest iTune purchases, you can do it all from this one app! If you really want to up your game and create the ultimate home entertainment, you can purchase additional speakers, set them up throughout your house and control them all with the app.
Personally I am very impressed with how sleek and attractive the speaker is and yet it still provides that same high quality performance as the bulkier speakers. This makes it great for relocating throughout the house and outdoors, allowing you to use it in so many ways. Plus, unlike my husbands large and less than attractive speakers, I don’t have to find a creative way to make it blend into our living room decor… it looks great all on its own!
Overall my husband and I are so incredibly pleased with the Denon HEOS 5 Wireless Speaker and do not have a single complaint! I highly recommend that you visit Best Buy this month, during August Audio Fest, and take a look at all of the amazing speakers that they have available. The speaker we reviewed is honestly the best one we have had the pleasure of owning and we have had quite a few of them. If you are looking for a convenient way to entertain your guests or family and aren’t sure where to look speaker wise, you are going to want to stick with the Denon brand, they are top quality!
