Our take on the Denon PMA-A100

by Jim Richardson

Everything you always wanted in a stereo receiver, except the radio

An integrated amplifier is essentially a receiver without a built-in AM/FM tuner. You get power to drive your speakers, audio controls, and inputs for music source components. Connect an iPod, a computer, a network music player, or any other device that can play Internet radio, and you may find you have no need for an AM/FM radio.

 Denon 5 Year Warranty

A beautiful beast of an amplifier

Don't let its elegant exterior or its ultra-conservative 80-watts-per-channel rating fool you. The PMA-A100 is a true heavy hitter that stands up to some of the world's most demanding loudspeakers. Its ultra-high-current UHC-MOS circuit conveys delicate musical nuances while delivering 3 to 10 times the peak current of conventional amplifiers.

Heavy-duty circuitry

Weighing in at nearly 57 pounds, the PMA-A100 sports massive power transformers, heat sinks, and storage capacitors. It can handle hair-raising dynamic peaks without breaking a sweat. Heavy shielding separates left and right signal paths, so they don't interfere with each other. Special leakage-canceling transformer mounts ensure low noise, and that means there's nothing to mask the subtle details contained within the musical signal.

Vinyl fans will love the sophisticated phono section, which accommodates both moving-magnet and moving-coil cartridges. The phono equalizer even gets its own shielded, dedicated power supply.

A rare opportunity for Denon fans

Make the PMA-A100 the foundation of a complete Denon centennial system. It's the perfect mate, aesthetically and sonically, for the other components in the 100th anniversary collection. The remote control that comes with the PMA-A100 also operates the DCD-A100 CD/SACD player.

This limited edition amplifier includes the 100th anniversary logo badge, and comes with a 5-year warranty and a signed certificate of authenticity from the chief production engineer who hand crafted the product. Also included is a beautiful Denon "brand book" that explores the history of this innovative brand.
