The entire system is configured and driven by the intuitive HEOS app (iOS and Android), while Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Soundcloud, Rdio, and TuneIn radio are just some of the integrated music services on offer. Capable of a surprisingly deep bass, a well‐judged midrange and room‐filling energy, this is the perfect way to spread stunning sonics throughout the house.”
