Denon Heos 1 is a portable, wireless, multiroom speaker that'll work outside

And it can be beefed up with the optional Go Pack

Denon has introduced the Heos 1 to its Heos range of multiroom speakers, and it is the first that can be used both in and outdoors. Denon says the compact speaker delivers “clear and expansive audio”, and has been designed so that two Heos:1 speakers can be paired together for stereo sound. 

The speaker is set up and controlled via the Heos companion app for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, and it will play nice with streaming cloud music services, music stored on your phone or tablet, USB storage devices, network storage or 3.5mm aux in.

The Go Pack adds a raft of features to the speaker, including a rechargeable battery that’s good for six hours, a Splashguard offering full IPX4-rated protection and a Bluetooth USB adaptor, so you can stream music from your phone or tablet when there’s no Wi-Fi. 

The Denon Heos 1 is available to pre-order now for £199 and if you do, you’ll get 50% off the Go Pack, making it £39.50. It’s expected to ship in June.
