Denon has revised its Home 150 wireless speaker that launched in early 2020 and ripped out the microphones. Voice control has been removed. The new Home 150 is therefore called Home 150 NV and NV seems to stand for No Voice. Otherwise, the specifications are pretty much the same, but the NV version seems to be priced a bit lower.

Denon Home 150 NV

The new Denon Home150 NV is very similar to the Home 150. However, the microphones and access to voice assistants have been removed. For those who don’t want to talk to or at their devices, the 150 NV may be just the right speaker.

Denon also promises that the Home 150 NV does not compromise on sound quality. There’s still hi-res audio support for files up to 24-bit/192 kHz and support for DSD 2.8 MHz. The Home 150 NV has two class D amplifiers. The 25 millimeter tweeter and the 89 millimeter woofer each have their own amplifier. The Home 150 (NV) has no battery and is powered from the socket. A USB A port is mounted on the back for connecting a USB storage medium and an RJ45 LAN port. Analog music signal can be supplied via a 3.5 millimeter jack plug connection.

Of course, the Home 150 NV participates on the HEOS platform with all its multi-room streaming options. Although the Home 150 NV does not have a voice assistant, it uses the brand’s own HEOS platform. All common streaming services are supported, as well as the use of Apple AirPlay 2.
