”…there’s no denying that this cute Denon amp punches out the bass-lines and drums like a good ’un.” ’Hi-Fi News – Highly Commended’.

Digital power at its heart

At the heart of the Denon PMA-30 is a high quality digital amplifier. With 40 watts per channel (at 4 ohms), the PMA30 easily drives most speakers in small to medium-sized rooms. For greater bass, a dedicated subwoofer output lets you connect your choice of active sub.

Compatible with Hi-Res music files for the finest sound quality
As a fully-fledged digital amplifier, the PMA-30 features digital inputs that support ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24bit/192kHz. With a Hi-Res source and music you’ll hear an even more lifelike sound with stunning realism.

Bluetooth connectivity with aptX
For the quickest way to play your favourite streaming music services, simply link your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The PMA-30 also supports aptX Bluetooth streaming – giving you the highest quality, most detailed sounding signal available via Bluetooth.

Flexible range of sockets
As well as Bluetooth connectivity, this Denon digital wonder come with a range of other digital and analogue inputs. With one coaxial and two optical digital inputs you can connect a wide range of digital sources, such as Blu-ray, DVD, CD, TV and games console. In addition to this, the PMA-30 also has an analogue RCA phono input that’s ideal for a music source without digital output – such as a phono pre-amp.

High quality headphone output
If you listen to a lot of music on headphones, you’ll love the sound this Denon makes via its headphone output. Using a dedicated headphone amplifier circuit that features an ultra-low distortion, wideband op amp and fully discrete output stage, your headphones will probably never have sounded so good.

Compact size – rotate to fit
Styled to match the DCD-50 CD player, the PMA-30 is just 20cm wide. Making it even more flexible, the amp can even be positioned on its side – taking up little more room than a typical wi-fi router. As you turn the unit, the display rotates to match.

Stylish good looks
Just like the matching CD player, the PMA-30 is finished in contrasting matte black and soft aluminium. The minimal button count keeps the style clean and the design timeless.

Enjoy full-size sound without the bulk, with the compact Denon PMA-30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well spec'd, pretty, gorgeous sound I've been looking to simplify my hi-fi set-up since switching to streaming. I use Tidal HiFi on my phone and I needed a small but quality amp with Apt-X Bluetooth to stream at CD quality. The Denon PMA-30 fits the bill perfectly and is well matched to my Monitor Audio Bronze 2 speakers. The sound is detailed and musical, every bit as good as the Audiolab mini-system I was using before with the MA speakers. Bass was initially a little thin but improved after a few hours, so this amp does benefit from running in. Bluetooth linking worked first time and has been faultless since. The auto on/off features mean I can hide this little amp completely out of sight and control everything from my phone. Now streaming Talking Heads at 24-bit/48kHz. :) My only criticism is the battery in the remote was completely dead, despite the plastic tab being in place when I unboxed. It takes the less common CR2025 coin battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased so far I'd been looking to replace my 35 year old Cyrus One as that was showing its age in more ways than one but I needed something with a similar small form factor. The PMA30 offered just that along with optical inputs, bluetooth connectivity, remote control and a similar power output to the Cyrus. My listening habits, like most, have changed and all my music is now streamed, usually by an Apple TV through the optical output of my TV. After a couple of weeks I'm very pleased with the quality of sound the Denon produces, paired with my Rogers LS7t's it sounds more musical than the Cyrus did with plenty of detail and a better soundstage too with more than enough power to fill the room. The amp feels well built although the display is a bit on the small side, the remote is very solid too however most of the controls are for the matching CD player and those just for the amp are not positioned too well for a right handed person to use, I'd have preferred a specific remote for just the amp with larger buttons but it's something I can live with. My only real issue with the amp is that you cannot use banana plugs or spade connectors for the speaker connections which made bare bi-wire connection to my LS7t's a bit tricky however there was just enough capacity for my multi-strand cabling and like I've said it all sounds great. Bluetooth connection to my iPhone was easy to set up and the sound is much better than I expected it would be so I can easily listen to it for lengthy periods. Having lived with the sound from my old amp and speakers for so many years I was wary about making a change however I'm very glad I did and with my choice of the PMA30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little belter Bought for the home office and paired with some old Q Acoustics 1010s. All you need and much more for a small room. Super clear and decent oomph. Whip me with XT cables for being a heathen, but I’ve hooked up a Bluetooth deck and that sounds fab too. Only complaint is the price, but it’s probably worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price, and wonderfully compact! Denon produce well made, quality, and value for money HiFi equipment. I was, however, surprised and disappointed to note that the tiny crosshead screw for the battery compartment for the remote control requires a highly-specialised and uncommon tiny instrument/electronics screwdriver! To add to this unkind cut, the battery supplied has only a short life and you are advised to replace the factory-installed lithium "button-battery" asap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim and stylish. Bought the Denon PMA30 together with a Denon DCD50 without speakers. Easy to set up and has remote control which controls both systems . The out put of both is great and makes my cheap Sony speakers sound good... next purchase a good set of speakers to compliment this system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish space saving but limited connections The Denon PMA-30 along with the Denon DCD-50 replaces my kitchen hi-fi is very stylish and space saving. It has more than enough power to drive the Dali Oberon 1 speakers with Chord Clearway cable.If this was your main hi-fi you would find the number of connections limiting. Hard copy manuals should be provided.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returning It Bought as part of a package with the DCD50 (the first of which was broken and the second arrived as a European plugged item with no converter). This, too, was European plugged and had been opened to put a cheap (and incomplete) 3-pin sleeve on the plug. Lost confidence, returning the package including Monitor Audio Bronze Speakers. Really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound. I bought this so as to be able to listen to my vinyl collection and also streamed music. The sound is great and the ease of use is great. A great piece of equipment at. Good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precisely what I was looking for I need the facility to play CDs in our garden room with strict limitations on the size of the equipment. The PMA30 player is ideal in that respect and the quality is superb. The service provided by Richer Sounds was faultless in respect of efficiency, courtesy and friendliness

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, simple to use, and plenty of power Blunt this to replace an old Denon from ‘98 which had lost its left speaker channel. My needs had changed over the years, so I no longer needed multiple inputs, and this amp fit the bill perfectly. The sound being pushed through my speakers is every bit as warm and clear as my old amp, but takes up a fraction of the shelf apace, and provides remote control to boot. Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Service! Went into the Sheffield Store for a turntable/CD/Amp and the advise and help was amazing; knowledgeable staff can’t do enough for you. - and didn’t try to oversell anything - what a refreshing retail experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denon PMA 30 and Arcam muso speakers I bought the amp and speakers two weeks ago and am very pleased with the products. The sound is amazing. The speakers were purchased from richer sounds online without realising that you needed to be selective with amplifier choice being 30 ohm. The Cardiff branch advised me to try this amplifier and the soundstage is brilliant and the sound bright and spacious.
Date published: 2020-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound is very good and the soundstage is great I've had this for about a week and my wife and I are very pleased with it my wife likes the sound of it but more importantly the size! The appearance is also a plus point but most of all the sound you can clearly hear the sound of a brush brushing a cymbal which some more expensive amps tend to 'brush over' Yes we are pleased .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Denon PMA 30 amp Had the amp now for 2 weeks and very happy with it - powerful enough to drive my speakers and small and discreet enough to look good in any size room . Bought the matching Denon DCD 50 CD player which is also great - the amp also has Bluetooth which works flawlessly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I wanted an amplifier that was powerful enough to drive my Dali Opticon 1 speakers and play sound from Sky, Blu-ray, TV through a better sound system than through my TV's internal speakers also from other devices through bluetooth. I listened to the sound from a couple of cheaper, albeit best buys for their prices, amplifiers but was not satisfied. Then I tried the Denon PMA30 and was satisfied with the sound quality and clarity. It looks good and is very simple to operate through the remote control. To play your device simply connect your device through bluetooth to the amplifier The amplifier input automatically selects bluetooth input. To play sound from your TV (including Sky and Blu-ray connected to your TV) through the amplifier, simply press the input select up arrow on the remote control. (This operation is only required if the input mode of the amplifier is bluetooth).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, simplicity itself to use Bought this amp to work with a Cocktail Audio hard disc music player. It’s improved the sound no end with its optical digital input. It’s really easy to set up and to use - even the Bluetooth pairing is simple and actually works! Great to find an amp with a decent headphone amplifier socket on the front. Convenient small footprint too. I should add Richer Sounds’ Service was, as ever, exemplary - helpful, friendly and no hassle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This amp sound great thru toslink - but thru Bluetooth the sound goes out of sync if you're watching TV, there is a delay. So all the review saying it's great for TVs via Bluetooth are rubbish. Seems a major fault for me, I have to now spend a fourth 140 or more for a unconverted box and cables just to use this if I na try pics in sound and my sound good. Still might be better than some for size and performance even then but... doesn't seem like such a well made product really does it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant amp - sound and looks This is a brilliant amp matched with Q Acoustic 3020i speakers. Ideal for all genres of music with extremely clear treble and solid base frequencies. Simple to connect to devices via Bluetooth and simple to use remote for full control. Ability to position vertically makes this amp ideal alongside books on a bookshelf. Brilliant !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the class service, delivers with patience If you mainly want to stream music via bluetooth from your smartphone to your favourite room the Denon PMA30 is an excellent buy. It will surprise your expectations. I replaced the speaker wiring a week later, on Richer Sound's advice and this further improved the sound in the mid range. Bass is excellent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great tbh I've never been a fan of denon, but wanted something that had a optical output, and at that price I thought it was worth a gamble. It wasnt though. Bass is nonexistent, seems to lose complicated sounds, and high ends get totally lost, quite disappointing to be honest. Works ok as an AV amp

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact but not lacking Bought this a few weeks ago to go with a new record deck as I have dipped my toes back into the world of vinyl after a 20 year break, and it’s as if I never left. The Denon amp, while not being physically big, certainly packs a punch, and does justice to the new Audio Technika record deck. Very easy setup and was of use were also key buying factors, along with a good price offered by Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait? Useful features, great sound. I was looking for something to go into my study to replace a 25 year old Denon amp which was starting to show its age, when I found this on Richer Sounds' website. Intrigued by the idea of a Class D amp, I quickly realised the features perfectly fitted my requirements. There are plenty of cheap Class D amps out there, but the reviews for this suggested it was worth the premium - and I totally agree. I primarily play music from my PC, but sometimes play tracks from my iPod nano whilst using my work laptop (to save running my personal PC too). This little Denon has a couple of optical inputs, so the soundcard's DACs are bypassed and the signal stays digital all the way to the amp. My iPod connects via Bluetooth. This leaves an analogue input (which I may connect my old tape deck to), a digital input, and the second optical input. The remote control is small and neat, and sits next to my keyboard - I've found it doesn't need to point directly at the amp, so this makes it very convenient. The lower buttons of the remote are for the matching CD player. It's trivial to switch the amp from sitting horizontally to vertically, and the display rotates automatically. Whichever orientation you choose, it doesn't take up much space. The speaker terminals on the rear are good quality, and although the rear panel is recessed (see my photo as it's not obvious from the regular photos) there's enough room to tighten them without catching your fingers! I'm currently running my 25 year old TDL NFM speakers on wall brackets and they've had a new lease of life! A back to back test of the iPod vs the PC playing the same file favours the PC, but the overall sound is very impressive. I'm getting tempted to re-rip my cds to FLAC for the PC! There's much more control over the speakers than my previous amp had and the stereo imaging is good (considering the speaker position isn't optimal in my study). There is greater clarity at low volume levels which is important for me as it's no use sounding great at high volume when you need to be able to concentrate on work too! At higher levels it fills the room well without feeling too strained, but I think it is best (certainly with my speakers) at the low to medium level. The only thing I miss from the previous amp is the analogue volume knob - knowing that 8 o'clock was "work volume level", 10 o'clock was getting interesting and 11 o'clock and above was only suitable if it was just me at home! The rotary knob on this amp is barely needed as the remote is just easier (especially as it has mute) and the attenuation is displayed on the screen whilst the level is being changed. With the optical input the sample rate is shown (my soundcard output is set to 96kHz), for Bluetooth it shows the name of the connected device. It's possible to have multiple devices paired, and then you can choose which one to play from. The best indication to me is that I now play music to listen to in the study, which I can enjoy, rather than just having music to give a bit of background noise. I just might be tempted to get some newer speakers at some point though...
