For more than a century, we’ve been very serious about engineering the perfect sound – that’s why, in the early years, we called our Hi-Fi products “precision audio components”. And our approach hasn’t changed since: it’s all about performance. With this in mind, we decided that, though our latest products should be compact, and with remarkably sleek styling, they should be true high fidelity components. In other words, they should be totally Denon. Introducing the Denon Design Series: Real Hi-Fi For Today’s Lifestyles.
- Powerful BTL configuration Class D amplifier
- Fully digital processing
- Advanced master clock design
- High quality headphone amplifier
- Bluetooth compatible (aptX Low Latency / AAC / SBC compatible)
- Superbly finished aluminium panels
- Landscape or portrait orientation
Bespoke Hi-Fi components taken from Denon’s high-end “NE series”
We have employed a large number of audio electrolytic capacitors, resistors, film capacitors that are also used in the “NE series”, a new generation of Denon’s renowned Hi-Fi components. These optimum parts were selected by our lead sound engineer only after repeated auditions. To further refine sound quality, we introduced custom parts developed in collaboration with electrolytic capacitors parts manufacturers.
Full Digital Processing
Since the PMA-30 employs has a digital input type Class D amplifier, when playing back a digital source, it is possible to perform all processing from input to output in the digital domain. This makes it possible to eliminate the influence of external noise which becomes a problem with analogue amplifiers, delivering a broad soundstage with excellent transparency and resolution.
Powerful and detailed sound
The advanced amplifier section delivers amazing sound from a compact form factor, thanks to Denon’s unique HiFi engineering technologies. The full digital amplifier system delivers superior audio fidelity along with high amplifier efficiency at 40W into 4 ohms. The premium grade multi-way speaker connectors let you connect speaker cables via bare wire, pin connectors as well as banana plug connectors.
BTL configuration Class D power amplifier
The amplifier circuit is equipped with a Class D power design boasting a 40W + 40W (4 Ω) rated output when driving both channels. It implements the BTL configuration that powerfully drives speakers by using two power amplifiers per channel. The PWM processor, which is the heart of the Class D power amplifier, is equipped with a high-noise design that offers low noise over a wide band. For both PWM processor and power stage power supply circuit.
Master clock design
Making use of an advanced Adopt master clock design that employs a digital audio interface, the PMA-30 offers ultra-low jitter. By precisely synchronizing each digital circuit with the high-quality master clock, the finest audio reproduction with reduced jitter is realized.
Bluetooth with aptX Low Latency
Stream your favourite audio tracks from your portable devices via the PMA-30’s Bluetooth connectivity, which features quick and easy pairing via the Bluetooth button on the front panel. For CD-quality audio playback, the PMA-30 features the latest generation Qualcomm aptX Low Latency decoding, which also provides optimum time synchronization when playing back audio from video sources with no lip sync issues.
