Rated 4 out of 5 Sound purchase for the money
Looks good (as if that matters) and operates well. Sound is pretty good bearing in mind the cost - I'd dropped from a Cambridge Audio A640v2 to this and can tell the difference but as the 640A has packed up and I'm getting bored of mid-range amps promising the world I thought I'd try something cheaper and I'm not disappointed.I've not tried the phono stage (and probably won't as I've a Cambridge Audio phono amp). Remote is ok for the money.
Only niggles are the cheap looking transformer that can be seen through the casing (and there's no way I'd run another device off the back 240V outlet), and the remote is far easier to use than the dial selector on the front of the amp.

Rated 3 out of 5áby bombjob Hmm...
I bought this product along with the Wharfedale diamond 9 speakers. The sound is adequate but I wouldn't rate them higher than that and I picked up some Panasonic RP-HH225 headphones too. Soon as I rigged up the amp and speakers I thought it sounded okay, nothing special. Through the Panasonic headphones the sound is muffled at best. My advice would be to invest in better speakers and headphones if your budget allows.
To be honest I am pretty disappointed with the set up but what do you expect for just over ú200!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Director50 Good value for money
Early days as I have not had this product very long. However it does all I could want from a basic amplifier. I am pleased with the sound quality. I was impressed with how quickly it was delivered after ordering. Full marks to Richer sounds for this

Rated 5 out of 5áby Poppaaxe Great amp from a great company at a great price
This amp has helped to bring my vinyl back to life, great sound and with enough features to give you a little more control of your listening experience.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Colin101 Excellent performance on a budget
Let's face it, most of us will only ever be able to lust after really high end equipment so it's great that there are manufacturers like Denon (and suppliers like Richer Sounds) who put out great gear at sensible prices.
I bought the PMA-520AE along with the Denon DCD-520 CD player and a pair if Q Acoustic 2010i speakers. My set up is completed by a second hand AR Legend turntable.
To my ears, this set up is delivering amazing sound quality and handles several genres with aplomb -- rock, jazz, folk and classical.
Both Denon separates come with the same remote control which at first glance seems to be more complicated than it needs to be. Your mileage may vary.
Overall I am extremely happy with my updated audio equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5áby CambridgeMan Disappointing
Bought this PM520 from the Richer Sounds web site based on the numerous favourable reviews as our local branch didn't have it in stock, and I was looking to replace a (very) old Cambridge Audio A1. Sadly, for me the sound quality lacked the clarity and dynamic range that I was hoping for, and the loudness contour seemed to make the sound worse. Fortunately, with the fantastic service of Richer Sounds I was able to exchange the PM520 for a Cambridge Audio AM5 which to me is a far superior sound experience. Although the Denon offers more features, I would suggest anyone looking in this price range should audition both amps and make their own decision on the sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Velsheda54 Denon PMA520AE
This item was bought to replace a DENON PMA-250 which i purchased back in 1989. Having given me many years of great sounds it was starting to fail, so the hunt began for a replacement. Having read numerous reviews of various amplifiers i decided to go for the DENON PMA520AE and i have not been disappointed with my choice.
A powerful amp which i would highly recommend, Punchy bass and clear treble which would compliment any stereo separates system.
Combine with a first class service from Richersounds and you won't go far wrong.
