  • Often manufacturers don't just design their ranges to look good together, but to complement one another for the best sound quality too.
  • The quiet signal that comes off the needle of a record player needs the extra boost of a phono stage to be heard. This unit has one built-in, though an external unit may well offer better quality.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5by value for money Brilliant amp. Dont know much about all things amplifier but this does job and doesnt dissapoint. Using it for my 1210's and happy to get the vinyl sound again. Delivery fast. 21 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5by use to high end gear,linn, naim. this is for loft/gym use. burned in, sounds open and controlled. get's me in the right mood for a work out. powering a pair of gale 3010s speakers, with symphony 400 cable. the sound is open and tight. you won't get a lot of bass with these speakers, as they are small. very pleasant to listen to. headphone jack good, used in loft/gym. would probably get more bass if wanted from a larger speaker and i'm sure the amp would do the job. remember: source-amp-speaker. 10 July 2013
