Denon PMA-60 Digital Integrated Amplifier
Originating from over 100 years of precise audio reproduction
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.
Class D power with new generation DDFA amplifier technology
Fully digital processing
“Advanced AL32 Processing Plus” brings the high-resolution sound closer to the original recording
DSD 11.2 MHz & PCM 384 kHz / 32 bit compatible USB-DAC
Digital isolator shuts out PC noise
Advanced master clock design
High quality headphone amplifier
Bluetooth compatible (aptX™ Low Latency / AAC / SBC, NFC compatible)
Superbly finished aluminium panels
Fully digital processing
Since DDFA is a digital input type Class D amplifier, when playing back a digital source, interpolation processing by “Advanced AL32 PP” technology, volume adjustment, amplification, and feedback management is all undertaken in the digital domain. This makes it possible to eliminate the influence of external noise which can become a problem with analogue amplifiers. The end result is a broad soundstage with excellent transparency and resolution.
* Advanced AL32 Processing Plus is compatible with PCM signals only
High Resolution Audio via your computer
Via the USB-B input on the back panel, you can connect your Mac or PC to the PMA-60 and enjoy high resolution audio tracks. The PMA-60 can play high resolution PCM files of up to 32-bits/384-kHz along with high resolution DSD 2.8 MHz, 5.6 MHz and even 11.2 MHz files (DSD is the advanced digital audio coding system of SACD). A USB-A to USB-B cable is included. To eliminate induced digital noise via the USB input, the PMA-60 features a dedicated noise isolation block prior to the digital amplifier and D/A conversion block that prevents digital noise from degrading the audio fidelity.
Bluetooth with NFC and aptX Low Latency
Stream your favourite audio tracks from your portable devices via the PMA-60’s Bluetooth connectivity, which features quick and easy pairing via the Bluetooth button on the front panel. For even faster pairing, the PMA-60 features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply activate your NFC-enabled Bluetooth device and place it next to the N mark on the PMA-60 (located on the side panel), and it’s instantly paired with no need for manual passcode entry. For CD-quality audio playback, the PMA-60 features the latest generation Qualcomm aptX Low Latency decoding, which also provides optimum time synchronization when playing back audio from video sources with no lip sync issues.
High quality headphone output
For top audio fidelity the PMA-60 is equipped with a dedicated headphone amplifier circuit that features a high speed ultra low distortion wideband op amp that’s paired with a fully discrete final output stage. In order to accommodate the widest range of headphone types, the PMA-60 features an adjustable headphone impedance control, with 3 settings for low, medium and high impedance headphones which provide proper matching of headphone impedance and amplifier gain. The headphone jack features a 6.3mm connector for compatibility with premium home and professional studio headphone models.
