Our Review

Denon HEOSDRIVEHS2 AV Receiver Review


The Denon HEOSDRIVEHS2 AV Receiver emerges as a sophisticated solution for those seeking a comprehensive multi-room audio experience. As part of Denon's acclaimed HEOS series, this AV receiver distinguishes itself with robust amplification and extensive connectivity options, catering to custom installations and audiophiles alike. It promises not only to centralize your home audio but also to deliver it with uncompromising quality.

Design and Build

The HEOSDRIVEHS2 boasts a sleek, professional design that is immediately indicative of its high-end status. Its 2U enclosure is relatively compact for an AV receiver that consolidates four separate audio zones, making it an efficient use of space in a rack setup. While the absence of physical controls might be a sticking point for some, this design choice emphasizes the HEOSDRIVEHS2's commitment to a streamlined, app-driven user interface. The included rack ears are a welcome addition, facilitating an organized and integrated installation in a home theater rack.


Denon has equipped the HEOSDRIVEHS2 with an array of inputs and outputs that ensure it can handle virtually any audio setup. The inclusion of analog, digital, USB, and Ethernet ports allows for a multitude of devices to be connected, from traditional turntables to modern networked devices. This level of connectivity empowers users to build a truly versatile audio system that can cater to both wired and wireless preferences.

Amplification and Sound Quality

At the heart of the HEOSDRIVEHS2 is its Class D amplification, providing 60W per channel, which can be expanded to 120W when bridged. This power is not just about volume; it's about delivering refined and detailed sound even at lower levels. The transparent audio electronics ensure that the sound remains pure and true to the original recording, a testament to Denon's legacy in high-fidelity audio.

Multi-Zone Features

The HEOSDRIVEHS2 shines in multi-room audio setups, with its ability to support four distinct zones. Each zone can play its own audio source or sync with others for a cohesive listening experience throughout your space. The sophisticated room grouping and independent volume control are invaluable for those who want to tailor their listening experience to different areas of their home or office.

Control and User Interface

Control of the HEOSDRIVEHS2 is elegantly managed through a dedicated app available for both Android and iOS devices. The app's design focuses on ease of use, allowing users to manipulate audio settings, select sources, and group zones with intuitive taps and swipes. However, some users may find the interface cumbersome if they prefer physical knobs and buttons for on-the-fly adjustments.

Installation and Setup

Integrating the HEOSDRIVEHS2 into your audio system is straightforward for the tech-savvy, although it might be complex enough to warrant professional installation for others. The initial setup may present some challenges, such as ensuring the app correctly recognizes the device, but these are one-time hurdles that can be overcome with some manual adjustments.


In use, the HEOSDRIVEHS2 delivers on its promise of distributing high-quality audio across multiple zones. The built-in DSP allows for fine-tuning of speaker outputs, ensuring optimal performance tailored to the acoustics of each room. Additionally, the active cooling system is a thoughtful feature that prevents overheating, ensuring that the receiver operates reliably, even when powering all zones simultaneously.

Flexibility and Customization

For custom integration professionals, the HEOSDRIVEHS2 is a dream. The bridgeable amps and adjustable filters provide a level of audio customization that can satisfy even the most particular audiophile. This flexibility also means that in many cases, additional components such as standalone HEOS Amps or Links may not be necessary, streamlining the overall setup.


Despite its many strengths, the HEOSDRIVEHS2 does have limitations. Its support for high-resolution audio is capped at 16 bits, 48kHz, which may disappoint those who prefer listening to higher resolutions. Moreover, the complexity of the system might be daunting for some, requiring a willingness to engage with the nuances of audio configuration.

Final Thoughts

The Denon HEOSDRIVEHS2 AV Receiver stands out as a powerful and versatile centerpiece for multi-room audio systems. Its high-quality sound, extensive connectivity, and multi-zone capabilities make it an excellent choice for both residential and commercial applications. While it may require some technical know-how or professional assistance to set up, its performance and customization options are likely to please those who demand a top-tier audio experience. Whether you're looking to outfit your home or a larger space with superior sound, the HEOSDRIVEHS2 is a compelling option to consider.
