Denon PMA-60 Stereo integrated amplifier w/ built-in DAC and Bluetooth
Big sound from a compact integrated amplifier
Need to set up a small stereo system in a bedroom, office, or dorm? The Denon PMA-60 packs the powerful big-system punch you crave into a compact package that fits almost anywhere. Stand it on its side for placement on a desktop or shelf, or lay it flat in a cabinet or rack — it will automatically detect its orientation and adjust the OLED display accordingly.
With its array of digital and analog inputs, built-in DAC, and Bluetooth, the PMA-60 is ready to play great-sounding music from a variety of sources. This little amp makes MP3- and CD-quality music sound great, plus it decodes high-res audio files for better-than-CD audio quality. Denon’s advanced AL32 processing upsamples non-high-res digital audio, so even compressed music sounds better. Want to enjoy your music without disturbing others? The PMA-60’s built-in high-quality headphone amp accommodates all sorts of headphones.When it comes to audio gear, the Denon PMA-50 conventional wisdom always seems to favor big over small. Big speakers. Big amps. Big everything. But not every room is right for a large-scale sound system. For a bedroom, dorm room, or the desktop in your home office, a small setup may simply make a better choice. That’s why Denon created the PMA-50 integrated amp. This little mighty mite packs the powerful, big-system punch you crave into a compact package that fits neatly almost anywhere. With its built-in digital-to-analog converter, Bluetooth® streaming, plus an array of digital and analog inputs, the PMA-50 is ready to play beautiful music from a wide variety of sources such as smartphones, disc players, a TV, or a computer.
Enjoy high-resolution stereo sound with the Denon PMA-60 Digital Integrated Stereo Amplifier. The unit features a Class-D amplifier section that incorporates Qualcomm DDFA technology to produce a nuanced yet powerful sound with up to 25W of power per channel at 8 Ohms. When connected to a Mac or Windows computer via the USB-DAC port, the integrated DAC utilizes Advanced AL32 digital audio processing to playback PCM files up to 384 kHz/32-bit, with enhanced dynamic range and improved resolution at low level.
The PMA-60 allows you to input digital audio signals via two optical ports and one coaxial port. The stereo RCA aux input lets you connect an analog device such as a CD player. Bluetooth connectivity with NFC and aptX low latency enables you to stream audio tracks from your Bluetooth-enabled portable devices, with no lip sync issues when playing back audio from video sources.
The headphone output on the front panel features an adjustable output impedance, to ensure optimal sound quality, whether listening to your music with home or professional studio headphones. A crisp OLED display shows the source selected, the sampling frequency and data format, as well as the volume setting when you turn the volume knob.
The PMA-60 ships with a remote control and a USB cable.
