Technology - PMA-720AE

  • Signal Level Divided Construction (S.L.D.C.)

    The Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC) chassis, developed by DENON, is used in the audio circuit to ensure that delicate musical signals from such advanced digital sources as DVD and CD are faithfully amplified and transmitted to the speakers.
