Product Research


Advanced High Current (AHC) Single-Push-Pull Circuit: Engineered with Denon amplifier technology, the PMA-600NE delivers 45 Watts of power-per-channel (8ohm, 20-20kHz, THD 0.07%). The PMA-600NE incorporates AHC (Advanced High Current) transistors with 2 to 3x the electrical current supply capacity of conventional audio power transistors. The acclaimed Denon AHC single-push-pull circuit allows for the discrete amplifier in the PMA-600NE to produce powerful sound with musical fidelity. This integrated amplifier offers compatibility with a wide range of speaker types and impedances (4 to 16-ohm) for operational stability.

Vibration-Resistant Design: The PMA-600NE's vibration-resistant design with Direct Mechanical Ground Construction reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers so sound quality meets Denon standards. The power transformer, which is the largest vibration source among amplifier components, is outfitted with a thick steel plate to the mount, suppressing vibration created by the transformer as well as external vibration toward the transformer. By directly supporting the transformer with a steel plate, the vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced resulting in pristine sound.

Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC): The Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC) chassis developed by Denon is used in the audio circuit to ensure that delicate musical signals are faithfully amplified and transmitted to the speakers. This design technology makes sure you can listen with exemplary quality, every time.

Main Transformer with Individual Wiring: To eliminate interference and maintain exceptional sound quality, the main power transformer of the PMA-600NE has separate coiled wires for the audio and control circuits. An integrated micro-processor features Stop Mode for even greater sound quality while you listen.

Micro-Processor Stop Mode: The micro-processor of the PMA-600NE features a Stop Mode that automatically ceases all operations of the micro-processor when it's not needed for playback. By stopping the oscillation of the micro-processor clock during these listening moments, the audio signal is protected from external noise and enhances sound quality.

24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Denon PMA-600NE utilizes a 24-bit/192kHz DAC (PCM5141) for high-resolution audio playback; supporting 16- or 24-bit Linear PCM with a sampling frequency of 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, or 192 kHz.

Analog & Source Direct Modes: Analog Mode allows the PMA-600NE to operate as a purely analog amp, disabling digital inputs as well as Bluetooth while you listen to an analog source. Turn on Analog Mode to close power to the dedicated digital power source and stop operation of the digital input and Bluetooth circuity, avoiding any high frequency influence on the analog section of the PMA-600NE. Enjoy your favorite analog sources with uninhibited clarity and detailed reproduction. When Source Direct is activated, you can listen to either analog or digital audio signals with higher sound quality. Source Direct mode the bypasses the integrated amp's tone adjustment circuitry (Bass/Treble/Balance), resulting in playback of higher sound quality for analog and digital audio sources.

Built-in Bluetooth: The Denon PMA-600NE features built-in Bluetooth (version 4.2) with a 98.4' wireless range for music streaming (A2DP 1.2) and control (AVRCP 1.6). You'll be able to wirelessly connect to smartphones (including iPhone & Android), tablets (including iPad & Android), laptops (including Microsoft Surface & Macbook), computers (including Windows PC & Mac), and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Up to eight Bluetooth devices can be remembered by the PMA-600NE, so family members as well as friends can enjoy their favorite tracks (only one device can be used at a time).

  • Wireless Music Streaming: You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Denon receiver. In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the PMA-600NE offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the Denon receiver offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod/iPhone/Pad.
  • Wireless Music Control: You will also be able to control basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip) using the receiver's remote control. Advanced music operation will still need to be handled from your Bluetooth-enable device. There is no song/artist information display on the receiver or connected TV. Continue to use your Bluetooth device's screen to view song/artist info.
  • Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls is not supported.
  • Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Denon receiver.

Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The PMA-600NE features two Optical (Toslink) digital inputs and one Coaxial (RCA) digital input that support PCM signals up to 192kHz/24-bit. Linear PCM signals (16- or 24-bit) with a sampling frequency of 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, or 192 kHz can be input into this unit. These digital inputs help to improve sound and visual quality of your TV audio, Blu-Ray, media players and more. You can also use these digital inputs for high-resolution sound from an audio source on your computer.

Note: The optical & coaxial digital inputs do not support Dolby Digital, DTS, DSD, or AAC.

Line-Level RCA Inputs: The Denon integrated amplifier is outfitted with four line-level, stereo RCA inputs labeled "CD", "Network", "Aux", and "Recorder". Use these analog line-level inputs to connect legacy devices, such as a CD player or tape deck.

MM Phono Equalizer: The PMA-600NE includes a phono equalizer that supports playback from turntables with a MM cartridge. This phono equalizer has high gain, and unlike loops in other circuit board patterns which cause adverse effects on sound quality, the simple, straightforward design of the PMA-600NE phono equalizer significantly improves sound.

Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The Denon integrated amplifier is equipped with binding post speaker output terminals that support bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). You can connect a single pair of loudspeakers with impedances from 4 to 16-ohm.

Headphone Output: The Denon PMA-600NE is equipped with a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack for connecting a set of headphone so you can enjoy your music privately. When headphones are plugged into the integrated amp's headphone jack, audio will no longer be output from the amplifier's connected speakers or subwoofer output.

Subwoofer Output: The PMA-600NE integrated amplifier is outfitted with a mono-subwoofer output for connection of a powered subwoofer (sold separately). The subwoofer output has a fixed 100Hz low pass crossover filter.

Line-Level Recorder Output: Audio signals input into this unit can be output to an external recording device, using the integrated amplifiers stereo line-level RCA outputs. When recording audio from a playback device connected to this unit, audio can be recorded with the playback device still connected to the integrated amp.

Remote Control: The included IR remote control can be used to operate not only PMA-600NE integrated amplifier, but Denon CD players and network audio players as well. The remote provides Power, Input, and Volume control for the integrated amplifier; as well as playback control for select Denon CD players and network audio players. In addition, there is a 3.5mm IR Control input and output for connecting Denon CD players and network audio players with an IR controller.

Tone Controls: The Denon PMA-600NE offers Bass, Treble, & Balance control. Bass (100Hz) and Treble (10kHz) can be adjusted from -8dB to +8dB. The Balance knob allows you to adjust the volume output from the left and right speakers. The Bass, Treble, and Balance control knobs are found on the unit's front-panel only (not on remote).

Auto Standby: When there is no input signal and no operation for approximately 30 minutes, this unit automatically enters Standby mode to conserve power and energy.

Protection Circuitry: This is a function to prevent damage to devices within the power supply when an abnormality such as an overload, excess voltage, or over temperature occurs for any reason.

This has a built in phono preamp. Does this mean I don't need a preamp to connect the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon to this amp?
[ Daniel  Jan 13, 2021 ]
5 answers
Yes, you won't need a preamp. Hope this helps
[ david  Jan 14, 2021 ]
Correct. You can connect your turntable directly to the Denon amp. I think it provides excellent dynamic sound for the price, too.
[ ROBERT  Jan 13, 2021 ]
To my way of thinking you can use your cartridge.
[ Paul  Jan 13, 2021 ]
Correct. You just connect your RCA cables from the turntable to the Phono input and you're good to go.
[ Ben  Jan 13, 2021 ]
That appears to be correct. I don't personally own a turntable, but I would have no hesitation buying one for my Denon. What you may want to verify is the sensitivity of the circuit being compatible with whatever pickup you use in the turntable. Denon would be the best source to confirm that. I don't think it is an issue as it's mostly industry standard and it means you might crank the volume a bit more with one cartridge than another.
[ Michael  Jan 13, 2021 ]
How do I know if I need a dedicated headphone amp in addition to this unit? What specs (specifically what values) on the headphones would indicate a headphone amp is a requirement?
[ Brian  Dec 20, 2020 ]

Yes, it has two optical inputs and one coaxial input, and the on-board DAC is quite good.
[ SEAN  Dec 23, 2020 ]
This integrated amp is not expected to work with true S/PDIF ports but will work with a hybrid S/PDIF-optical digital port.
[ Paul  Dec 23, 2020 ]  Staff
Yes, it can!
[ Calvin  Dec 23, 2020 ]  Staff
It has two optical and one coaxial....not sure what s/pdif is? sorry
[ ANTHONY  Dec 23, 2020 ]
I have an old Panasonic model TC-L42U12 TV, an XBOX one, and an old Pioneer CLD-3090 LaserDisc player. Would I be able to connect all these to this Amp? The XBOX,Laserdisc and TV all have Toslink Optical ports but the amp only has 2 inputs.
[ Larry  Dec 05, 2020 ]
1 answer
According to Panasonic's website there should be an analog audio output on the TV which could be used instead of the optical audio output. Also, the Xbox's audio could also be output via the TV's optical port giving a couple ways to connect this amp to your gear.

Hello , I think so , this amp has a phono plug , better if you call crutchfield costumer service and ask them , pretty sure they know better than me . This amp is excellent very happy with mine.. good luck..
[ alejandro  Dec 07, 2020 ]
I see no reason why it would not.
[ Paul  Dec 07, 2020 ]
I have a Project Debut Carbon turntable and it works great. Don't know why it wouldn't work with a different ProJect turntable.
[ Scott  Dec 07, 2020 ]
The PM-600 has a built in phono inputs... so yes, It will work great with a Pro-Ject Evo Turntable without the need for an external phono stage.
[ Ben  Dec 07, 2020 ]
Is this amp a good match for the KEF LS50/LS50 Meta speakers? Has anyone tried this combo and, if so, how would you rate it?
[ Louis  Nov 23, 2020 ]
2 answers
Since your speakers are active, the 45 watts shouldn't matter. What I like is that it has phono and head phone pre Amp capability,as well as a DAC that meets my expectations and streams Blu tooth. You could spend more, but I don't think it is necessary.
[ Yon  Nov 23, 2020 ]
Steve Guttenburg (the Audiophiliac Youtube audio reviewer--Not the actor) did a favorable review of the Denon PMA-600NE paired with the KEF LS50. I can't put a link here, but you can just search for "Steve Guttenburg Denon PMA-600NE" and you'll find it. I haven't tried the LS50 pairing personally, but I trust his opinion. His review was one of the biggest reasons I decided to purchase the PMA-600NE myself.
[ SEAN  Nov 23, 2020 ]
Can this be hooked up to a computer? If yes, how?
[ Joe  Nov 23, 2020 ]
2 answers
Jonathan nailed it! I wanted to add that this integrated amp can be used with a USB DAC to connect to a USB port on a computer. This is helpful when the computer does not have one of those digital audio outputs.
[ Paul  Dec 14, 2020 ]  Staff
If your computer has SPDIF optical or coaxial digital output or analog stereo output (like headphone jacks), yes. I use the optical out from my motherboard via a TOSLINK cable to the amp to take advantage of the amp's DAC rather than rely on the motherboard's analog stereo out supplied to the headphone jack.
[ JONATHAN  Dec 09, 2020 ]
Can you use active speakers with the record out RCA? I have JBL MKII studio monitors I'd like to use.
[ Eric  Nov 20, 2020 ]
2 answers
I don't see why not. However, I haven't tried to do so...
[ Joe  Dec 07, 2020 ]
Yes you can, the signal is line level. You can also use it in combination with speaker output. You should always have speakers connected to the speaker binding post when using the amp. So, anything you connect to the record out should only be supplemental. The record out will be unaffected be the volume control and mute features on the amp. Balancing your JBL output will be done from their own volume control. Of course you could control overall levels from your source too. I have a set of powered Yamaha near fields connected like this suspended over my treadmill.
[ Lucius  Dec 03, 2020 ]
Does Bluetooth streaming go through the DAC or only components connected to the coax and digital inputs?
[ nick  Nov 17, 2020 ]
3 answers
I'm able to connect via Bluetooth without a cable. So I'm assuming it's connecting through DAC. I hope this helps.
[ JARRETT  Nov 17, 2020 ]
Only Components connected through the Coax and Digital Inputs. Bluetooth wireless links have data rates sufficient to transfer high-quality audio that goes through decoders with the device.
[ THOMAS  Nov 17, 2020 ]
You can stream right to the PMA 600... Selector switch to Bluetooth... hit the button to link.. and you are streaming.
[ SCOTT  Nov 17, 2020 ]
I'm new to the home stereo world and I'm wondering, since this amp only allows 1 pair of speakers is there a way to add more, If so, how?
[ joe  Nov 04, 2020 ]
3 answers
To my knowledge no,this is a great amp and I would buy it again, if the need arose. Paul
[ Paul  Nov 04, 2020 ]
Only two speakers and one subwoofer can use with it! For stereo you only need that. Very good quality!
[ TAMAS  Nov 04, 2020 ]
Not that i am aware. If you want multiple speakers, you need a surround type set up like in an av system or an amp that has two zones you can play at same time. Its a nice little amp I use via Bluetooth from my phone with a set of bookshelf speakers. Fits my needs. I have denon av receiver for multi-player use 9.2 surround
[ Roberta  Nov 04, 2020 ]
If the unit has been idle for a time and the television that would be connected via Optical In is turned on with sound being sent to the Denon - will the Denon auto-sense the signal and turn on? Will it self-select the optical input? Or will I need to turn this and the TV on separately?
[ Ken  Sep 15, 2020 ]
2 answers
It will not turn on automatically. Once powered on, it may self-select the input, because I've noticed it self-select Bluetooth input when I play music on my paired laptop. However, I cannot say for sure.
[ ROBERT  Jan 13, 2021 ]
I never made it that far with my unit. It lasted about 30 minutes.
[ JOSEPH  Sep 15, 2020 ]
Can i connect 6ohm speakers to this amp?
[ Aleksandar  Sep 12, 2020 ]
4 answers
Yes. I run a pair of 4 ohm vintage Infinity speakers. This amp handles them with ease.
[ Jack  Sep 12, 2020 ]
The minimum recommended impedance is 4 ohms.
[ BLAINE A  Sep 12, 2020 ]
The amp is capable of driving 4 to 8 ohm speakers so yes the amp is suitable for 6 ohm speakers. Of more importance is the wattage requirements of the speaker. The amp rating is likely around 55 watts so if the sensitivity of the speaker is above 87 dB it should work just fine.
[ David  Sep 12, 2020 ]
Yes u can!
[ James  Sep 12, 2020 ]

Yes. The volume dial also rotates to volume position based on the remote adjustment as well.
[ Ben  Aug 31, 2020 ]
Yes Barry, the remote does raise and lower the volume on my Denon PMA-600. I am very happy with this unit.
[ GARY  Aug 30, 2020 ]
[ DANIEL F  Aug 29, 2020 ]
Yes the remote raises the volume. It also switches inputs.
[ THOMAS  Aug 29, 2020 ]
Yes. Barry K. You will need to install the batteries, and then control the volume button either up or down. Contact Crutchfield if you are experiencing any further issues with your remote.

I have the lp120, but more importantly I just bought a pair of lsim707's that tend to be hungry.( haven't hooked them up yet so I don't know if I have enough clean power now. My receiver is 140 watts per channel. I also have polk a7's and a3's as surrounds.
[ Billy Boy  Aug 12, 2020 ]

I purchased the Denon 600 NE as a stand alone receiver for 2 channel stereo. You could put the audio out of the Denon and run that into the Pioneer unit. That way you can use the bluetooth and phono capacities of the Denon to go through your receiver. That way you retain your surround sound capacities.
[ marco  Aug 12, 2020 ]
The Denon PMA-600NE is a 2.1 channel integrated amp that is able to deliver 45 watts at 8 ohms. Your Polk speakers are moderately sensitive at 88db and a minimum 20 watts so the Denon should drive the speakers adequately in the average larger size living room at moderately loud levels (80-85db). So if you are wanting to assemble a dedicated 2 channel rig for music, the amp would be a decent affordable choice. I would suggest that you pick up a switch that would allow you to select between the Pioneer vs the Denon so you won't have to change your speaker wiring every time you want to change between 2 channel and surround. If you are contemplating using the Denon as a power amp to drive two of your surround speakers then frankly, there are better options. Check out the power amps offered by Crutchfield if you are wanting a dedicated amp to relieve some of the demands on your Pioneer AV receiver.

[ alejandro  Jul 24, 2020 ]
Yes turn phono pre amp off same turntable I have works well
[ Nicholas  Jul 24, 2020 ]
It will yes. There is a switch on the back of your AT-LP120 you can select the off setting and hook the RCA cable up to the phono input on the back of the amp. Or if you want to use the built in preamp on your turntable turn the switch on and hook the RCA cable up to the AUX input on the back of the amp.
[ Jason  Jul 24, 2020 ]
The lp-120 should have a switch to turn off the phono pre-amp. Do this and connect the turntable to the phone stage on the amp.
[ Ben  Jul 24, 2020 ]
I would recommend using the preamplifier on the Denon as it is quite good and one of the primary reasons to buy this amp in my opinion. The Audio Technica TT you are using has a switch on the back that allows you to turn off the pre-amp if I'm not mistaken. You switch it to line and then you can use any external or integrated preamp you desire. Another tip would be to upgrade your cart to an Ortofon Red or Blue even better. Happy spinning!

Is there any latency (delay) when using the subwoofer output with any of the digital inputs. (Toslink or Coaxial Digital) or is everything in time and synced?

There shouldn't be any discernible delay as long as you use a good quality subwoofer cable and the distance isn't extraordinarily long.

I am not using a sub,however when using the coaxial input I experienced no delay.
[ Paul  Apr 19, 2020 ]
Hi, I can only say I have not noticed any delay. For instance, I remember my the Polk speakers I had set up with my Mac had a ridiculous delay, before the sound eventually kicked in... So, without close analysis. the Subwoofer seems fine, ie. no delay. But I am not a technician type, and have not studied it too closely. As far as Bluetooth setups... The R-10SW has been the most simple and easy to use and good price I really like the sound, I have it hooked up with a pair of Klipsch RP-160M With the Denon PMA-600NE, I think I have a very versatile re. Analog/Digital and straight up good sounding old school system that makes sense and works too. (My idea of good sounding music would be the recent release of live concerts fro m the mid seventies featuring Rory Gallagher with his hard driving and loud sounding "power trio" not sure how a boy born in Ballyshannon and raised in Cork was even able to find a Fender Stratocaster Peace, AM

I'm using the Klipsch wireless subwoofer, and i was skeptical myself of a delay.But so far, no lagging , and music and response seem to be on time.

I'm running a blue toothed sub that's situated about 10 ft away and it sound fine in regards to timing. So far, I'm a fan of this unit and I'm impressed with it. I've only run a turntable thru it using analogue. I have run blue toothed radio into it and it sounds fine. Haven run any digital cables in or out of it but will if you wanted a check.

Can i use pair of ELAC Debut 6.2 Speakers with this AMP, Are they Match?

This amp will drive them nicely.
[ JACOB  Apr 17, 2020 ]
You should be fine. The power requirements of the ELAC's coupled with your room size and listening volume will determine the Match factor.
[ MICHAEL  Apr 02, 2020 ]
It drives my Cerwin Vega Studio Monitors (15" Woofers) with no problem. Your smaller Elac speakers should be fine.

Will this amp with 45 wpc have any trouble driving elac debut 6.2 bookshelf speakers ?

Hi Joe, thank you for your question. While the Denon PMA-600NE receiver is compatible with 6ohm speakers, and will drive the ELAC Debut 2.0 B6.2 speakers, depending on your plans of use for these speakers, finding a receiver that offers a little more continuous power could be beneficial to you. Please chat with us online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We will be happy to go over your application, and ensure that we provide you with the best recommendation for your system.

Nope. That's what I use. I live in an apartment so I am not inclined to crank it up but it can surely handle it.
[ Michael  Mar 12, 2020 ]
From what I rerad and hear from u tube reviews,it will. I am using rp600 Klipshs. I hope this helps. Paul
[ Paul  Mar 12, 2020 ]
It drives my Pioneer BS22LR book shelf speakers fantastically. Basically the Elac 6.2 have then same sensitivity 87db and 6ohm spec as my Pioneer set. I would say they would be a very nice combo.

I can't speak for that exact speaker but if you can make a comparison it does LS50W's excellent
[ Marcus  Mar 11, 2020 ]
What type of bass management does this subwoofer output provide? I see that it's specified as a "fixed 100hz low pass crossover"in Crutchfield's Details section, but -- crucially -- that specification doesn't resolve whether the line-level signal to the two satellite speakers is automatically HIGH-pass filtered at 100 hz as well whenever the sub is connected. This is an absolutely critical issue for correct implementation of a subwoofer in any two-way stereo system since it's not possible to correctly integrate a sub without rudimentary bass management including high-pass filter to the satellite channels. The user's manual doesn't clarify in the slightest, either. Thank you!.

I can tentatively confirm the PMA600-NE's line level signal to the two satellite speakers is NOT automatically high-pass filtered at 100hz when the subwoofer is connected. I confirmed this by keeping my subwoofer connected but dialing its volume/level down to zero, at which point I still heard low-frequencies from the satellite speakers. I wasn't able to validate this with any precision other than an ear test with familiar, bassy music (Rage Against the Machine and XX) and noting that the bass didn't drop out completely when the sub was zeroed out. My satellite speakers are Klipsch RP-600M, so they can reproduce low frequencies relatively well for bookshelf speakers. I hope that helps.

I respect your understanding of this technology. If I think it sounds ok or better, I am happy with it. That is I am not able to answer your question.
[ ALEC  Apr 18, 2020 ]
Like most receivers and integrated amplifiers, the speakers remain full range.

Can I use banana plugs to connect speaker wire to U.S. version of Denon PMA 600NE ? No mention of this method in owner's manual.
[ Greg  Dec 23, 2019 ]

I USED BANANA PLUGS. But they come in different shapes and sizes too. I have found some banana plugs will fit on one amp and not on another and vice versa. Some fit better than others...
[ ALEC  Apr 18, 2020 ]
Yes, the speaker connections on the back of this unit are 5-way binding posts. They will accept banana plugs.

It is class "D". We can't afford a class "A"

Um? What year did it graduate?
[ ALEC  Apr 18, 2020 ]
Denon website says it's an AB.
[ Noam  Mar 11, 2020 ]
It is neither but a proprietary design Denon may use a classic design but they aren't calling it as such.
