With a long-held reputation for superior budget amplifiers, the Denon PMA520AE comes with impressive pedigree.
IMPROVED SOUND QUALITY
At the heart of this European sound-tuned amplifier are a number of technical features that help create a dynamic yet well-balanced sound quality. High current transistors and a high capacity power supply circuit help give the PMA520 a powerful, punchy sound. Designed specifically with wide frequency sources, such as SACD, DVD-A and high bit rate streaming formats in mind, the PMA520AE has been thoroughly engineered to make the most of these revealing media. Clean, short signal paths and improvements to the volume circuitry have helped the PMA520AE sound even more precise and articulate. The fully discrete amplifier stage and separate analogue power supply ensure fine detail is faithfully reproduced and distortion is kept to a minimum.
VIBRATION RESISTANT DESIGN
With its solid metal casing and large, anti-vibration feet, the PMA520AE is well equipped to resist sources of mechanical interference. The aluminium front panel also helps in reducing electrical interference, especially from sources such as light dimmers and fluorescent bulbs. As you'd expect from Denon, the quality of finish is impeccable, with smooth edges, solid construction and well damped controls.
FULLY FEATURED INCLUDING A BUILT-IN PHONO STAGE
Despite its focus on sound quality, the PMA520AE still has more than enough features. One welcome feature for those with record decks is the built-in phono stage. In addition to this there are an extra four line level inputs and a recording in/out loop. Tone controls, a headphone socket and a full, system remote control makes up a strong spec.
With its smooth, powerful sound, unrivalled construction quality and useful range of features, it's hard not to see how the PMA520AE could be anything other than another impressive budget Denon amp - a tough act to follow.
