Stereo Class D Amplifier: The Denon PMA-60's amplifier section
incorporates DDFA technology from CSR. The unique DDFA architecture employs a
fast and highly accurate digital feedback loop to create digital input Class D
audio switching amplifiers that set new standards in digital amplifier sound
quality. The patented closed loop architecture features global feedback for each
amplifier channel processed in the digital domain, compensating for output stage
distortions, output filter non-linearities, and power supply variations. The
PMA-60's Class D amplifier is rated at 25 watts x 2 channels (at 1kHz/into 8Ω) or 50
Watts x 2 channels (at 1kHz/into 4Ω); it delivers superior audio fidelity and high
Denon Proprietary Technologies: The PMA-60 features Denon's original
sound technologies such as Advanced AL32 Processing and DAC Master Clock design
developed for premium Hi-Fi components, to dramatically enhance the music
listening experience. Your favorite digital

- Advanced AL32 Processing Plus:
For the ultimate fidelity with 16-bit,
20-bit and 24-bit digital audio tracks, the PMA-60 features Denon's Advanced
AL32 Processing Plus technology. Featured on Denon's premium audiophile
disc players and digital audio components, Advanced AL32 Processing Plus upconverts, digitally filters and noise-shapes lower bit data to full
32-bits, delivering remarkable dynamic range and noticeably better low level
- DAC Master Clock Design: In
order to reduce jitter, the Master Clock is re-generated in the PWM
modulator. This Denon Master Clock design ensures that sound is correctly
localized and your sound is thoroughly realistic & natural.
Tone Controls + Source Direct: You can independently adjust the
system's overall Bass & Treble settings from -8 to +8 dB. You can also balance
between the left & right channels. The Source Direct feature bypasses the
integrated amp's tone control for purer sound quality.
Speaker & Subwoofer Outputs: The
premium grade binding-post connectors let you connect speaker cables via bare
wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). Connect
speakers with 4-16Ω impedances. A mono-subwoofer
pre-out is also available for adding even more bass to the sound.
Dedicated Headphone Amplifier: The Denon PMA-60 is equipped with a
dedicated headphone amplifier circuit that features a high speed ultra-low
distortion wideband op amp that's paired with a fully discrete final output
stage. In order to accommodate the widest range of headphone types, the PMA-60
features an adjustable headphone impedance control, with three settings for low,
medium, and high impedance headphones; these provide proper matching of
headphone impedance and amplifier gain. The
headphone jack features a 1/4" connector for compatibility with premium home
and professional studio headphone models. When a set of headphones are plugged
into the front-panel 1/4" jack, audio will longer be output from the unit's

USB-B Input for Computer Audio: Via
the USB-B input, you can connect your Mac or PC to the PMA-60 and enjoy high
resolution audio tracks. The PMA-60 can play high resolution PCM files of up to
32-bits/384kHz along with high resolution DSD 2.8/5.6/11.2 MHz files (DSD is
the advanced digital audio coding system of SACD). Using the USB-B connection
will bypass your Computer's inferior soundcard to directly access the high
quality audio processing of the PMA-60 internal USB-DAC. To eliminate
PC-induced digital noise via the USB input, the PMA-60 features a dedicated
noise isolation block prior to the digital amplifier. A USB-A to USB-B cable is
