    Denon HEOSLINKHS2SR reviews

    HEOS Link Wireless Preamplifier (Series 2) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great hardware--terrible compatibility This unit was recommended to meet at my local Hi-Fi shop. I have really enjoyed the sound quality and found it really easy to use. But what I really cannot stand about this unit is the fact that none of the supported apps allow you to do anything other than stream radio stations. For instance, if I purchase an album on Amazon Music, I cannot stream that album through the Heos app. Instead, I have to manually download it and put it on a shared music server or a thumb drive. Not good options. I wish Denon could do some better negotiating with the major streaming services.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Own Several Heos Amps & Links I purchased several of the Heos Amps and Links to be a simple way to get music throughout my homes interior and patio. The App is so buggy and the devices are constantly lost or music erroneously stops playing. Resetting, starting over, etc., etc. I sure wish we went with Sonos - the reviews are better and the software gets required updates. I have so much Denon stuff in my home aerosol already I felt this was the way to go. Really frustrating - non-seamless stuff...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made, lots of connections, mediocre app The good - this thing can connect to almost anything. It's got connections for miles. it also has most of the music services. It would be great to have access to Google Music, but other than that it covers the bases well. The bad - the app is still buggy. It struggles with playing something that has been paused, or controlling after my phone has been dormant for a while. I almost always have to shut the app down and restart it to make it work again. It also does not like restarting most streams from a dormant state. If you were listening to something a few hours ago and simply want to restart play it usually doesn't work. The worst offense, however, is the lack of a sleep timer!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, could be great! Ok, lest skip over the HEOS software itself which could be improved. Let’s talk about the link. Functionality wise, hardware wise, no issues so far. However, when adding it to an existing entertainment system, ESPECIALLY when it is a DENON receiver, why can’t I have my link control the zone 2 of a DENON receiver the way an HEOS native multi zone receiver can! This is a big oversight or an intentional crippling of the device which is extremely unfortunate. IT ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO CONTROL ALL ZONES and show up in the app the way it does for an HEOS Receiver. Also, go ahead and add codes to other receivers as well so someone does not have to replace a recent av receiver but still be able to create an HEOS syste, with a Lin and other HEOS products.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from there must be better sound systems!!! there is no reason that this unit should continue to automatically shut off after a few hours, or sometimes after an hour.... the tech support people have no ability to address this issue. very diappointing

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst app ever The app makes this product worthless. This is not very serious from Denon. Connection is lost before the song is finished, crashing all the time, must do setups all the time...this is just poor app development ... Even the navigation is poor, the "back" button is closing the app?? Read the app reviews before you buy this!!
    Date published: 2018-01-29
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor experience! We have had signal issues on all the channels and the experience has been incredibly frustrating. We have had a tech out twice and it still does not work.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs work The sound is good, but the app is unreliable. I can’t really comment on the features, because it rarely works the way it should.
