Denon Compact Lifestyle Digital Amplifier



Denon PMA-30 Digital Integrated Amplifier
For more than a century, we’ve been very serious about engineering the perfect sound – that’s why, in the early years, we called our Hi-Fi products “precision audio components”. And our approach hasn’t changed since: it’s all about performance. With this in mind, we decided that, though our latest products should be compact, and with remarkably sleek styling, they should be true high fidelity components. In other words, they should be totally Denon. Introducing the Denon Design Series: Real Hi-Fi For Today’s Lifestyles.

Powerful BTL configuration Class D amplifier
Fully digital processing
Advanced master clock design
High quality headphone amplifier
Bluetooth compatible (aptX Low Latency / AAC / SBC compatible)
Superbly finished aluminium panels
Landscape or portrait orientation
Digital Integrated Stereo Amplifier
Enjoy superior audio fidelity from a compact, stylish design. The Denon PMA-30 replaces your standard component amplifier and offers modern connectivity. Enjoy listening to your favourite music from your portable device via wireless Bluetooth connectivity. For optimum wireless audio fidelity the PMA-30 features Qualcomm apt-X Low Latency decoding that delivers CD-quality sound. There are multiple digital inputs for compatibility with digital audio sources like a set-top-box or TV, along with an analog stereo input for legacy analog sources. The PMA-30 is rated at 40 watts per channel into 4 ohms, for compatibility with the widest range of speaker types. The deluxe styling is sized to fit just about anywhere, and it can be positioned horizontally as well as vertically. Add the DCD-50 matching CD Player, and you have the perfect stereo system for your modern living room.

Bespoke Hi-Fi components taken from Denon’s high-end “NE series”
We have employed a large number of audio electrolytic capacitors, resistors, film capacitors that are also used in the “NE series”, a new generation of Denon’s renowned Hi-Fi components. These optimum parts were selected by our lead sound engineer only after repeated auditions. To further refine sound quality, we introduced custom parts developed in collaboration with electrolytic capacitors parts manufacturers.

Full Digital Processing
Since the PMA-30 employs has a digital input type Class D amplifier, when playing back a digital source, it is possible to perform all processing from input to output in the digital domain. This makes it possible to eliminate the influence of external noise which becomes a problem with analogue amplifiers, delivering a broad soundstage with excellent transparency and resolution.
