Inputs and Outputs


Signal Level Divided Construction Chassis Design: The circuit handling low-level signals has been divided into separate blocks to ensure that influences from these signals on each other are held to an absolute minimum. This new chassis design, known as the Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC), preserves the purity of the signal, allowing it to be reproduced with much greater fidelity and clarity.

High-Quality Power Amplifier: With 50 watts of power per channel (at 8 ohms, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% THD), the DRA-295 delivers solid, reliable audio performance even when driving both A and B speaker systems at the same time.

Room-to-Room Remote Control with Remote In/Out Terminals: External remote control equipment including IR re-transmitters and IR remote receivers, such as Denon's separately available C-616/617S/617W/618 IR devices, can be connected to the DRA-295's IR remote input and output terminals.

Video Select Function: This function allows you to select a video source, and then select an alternate audio input source.

Last Function Memory: This unit is equipped with a last function memory, which stores the input and output setting conditions as they were immediately before the power was switched off. 

Back-Up Memory: The unit is also equipped with a back-up memory. This function provides approximately one day of memory storage when the main unit's power switch is off and the power cord is disconnected.

Remote Control

Remote Control: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to control the receiver and compatible Denon cassette players and CD players.

denon dra-295

Written By Russ T., North Carolina on Saturday, November 08, 2014

clean sound, no phono input, not enough bass thump but decent, fm sensitivity fair but should be better after all this is a Denon product. The price was right!

Pros: clean amp

Cons: no phono input fm reception only average so hook it up to an amplified fm antenna
