One of the world’s leading manufacturers of home entertainment and personal audio products is announcing some new products and the 2022 High End Show, held in Munich from May 19 – 22. Denon will be demonstrating its new audio products which include two new integrated amplifiers, one with HEOS Built-In network-based connected features. There will also be a high-performance CD player on show.
Denon will unveil the 140W-per-channelPMA-1700NE high-current integrated amplifier. The new amplifier offers connectivity for both analog and digital sources. Vinyl enthusiasts get a phono stage for moving magnet and moving coil cartridges. Optical and coaxial digital inputs enable the connection of devices such as TVs and media players.
The PMA-1700NE also provides support for high-resolution digital music up to 11.2-MHz DSD and 384-kHz/32-bit from a computer using the USB-B input which is mated to a precise master clock and high-performance DAC that effectively suppresses jitter for best performance during digital playback. Outputs include A/B speaker terminals as well as a subwoofer pre-out.
Most importantly, the PMA-1700NE is built to last, featuring a vibration-resistant design for maximum isolation. The designers have incorporated premium parts throughout, including an electronic volume control for smooth, channel-linear adjustment of output levels. There are also gold-plated speaker terminals and analog inputs to prevent corrosion over time and maintain reliable signal transfer.
The new PMA-900HNE Integrated Amplifier will also appear at the show. This new model has Denon’s multi-room HEOS Built-in included. This is Denon’s first HEOS Built-In integrated network amplifier and is designed to be the heart of a living room system so it can be used to play sound from the TV, gaming consoles or music sources. The PMA-900HNE is a high-current 85W-per-channel amplifier design and uses an oversized power supply to ensure great performance from any type of loudspeaker. Denon claims it delivers precise detail, imaging and balance.
The PMA-900HNE also makes streaming easy thanks to easy wireless network connectivity, providing access to content from popular music streaming services like Tidal, as well as the ability to connect over Apple AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, plus multi-room audio capability through HEOS Built-in. The PMA-900HNE is compatible with high-resolution digital audio ALAC, FLAC, and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192 kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD).
The third new product on show in Munich is the Denon DCD-900NE CD player. This model has been developed to work with Denon’s new PMA-900HNE, creating a stack system that can reproduce any type of digital music.
Denon’s engineers have incorporated advanced AL32 Processing Plus digital signal processing and filtering for precision and clarity. The DCD-900NE features an integrated USB port that supports high-resolution playback up to PCM 192kHz/24bits and DSD 2.8MHz/5.6MHz. The vibration-resistant design isolates the player from unwanted energy.
