Denon AV Receivers and Audio Products including Heos
In 1910, a guy named Frederick Horn had an idea..."Hey, let's make the best 8K, high-current HDMI switching audio/video receiver possible!".
Actually, he wasn't that forward-thinking. He invented cylinder media which you can think of as an old-school record. He was successful with this endeavor and it morphed from record manufacturing to disc and tape recording to eventually (and why we're writing this), hi-fi audio components. The advent of Nippon Denki Onkyō Kabushikigaisha in 1910 now known as Denon (much easier on the tongue) has made it possible for us to be proud San Diego dealers for Denon receivers and their other audio products! Here's some of their contributions to the industry and reasons why we think Denon is great.
