Features - PMA-30

Originating from over 100 years of precise audio reproduction

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.

 
 

Digital Integrated Stereo Amplifier

Enjoy superior audio fidelity from a compact, stylish design. The Denon PMA-30 replaces your standard component amplifier and offers modern connectivity. Enjoy listening to your favourite music from your portable device via wireless Bluetooth connectivity. For optimum wireless audio fidelity the PMA-30 features Qualcomm apt-X Low Latency decoding that delivers CD-quality sound. There are multiple digital inputs for compatibility with digital audio sources like a set-top-box or TV, along with an analog stereo input for legacy analog sources. The PMA-30 is rated at 40 watts per channel into 4 ohms, for compatibility with the widest range of speaker types. The deluxe styling is sized to fit just about anywhere, and it can be positioned horizontally as well as vertically. Add the DCD-50 matching CD Player, and you have the perfect stereo system for your modern living room.

 
 

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 amplifer 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.

High Resolution Audio support

Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio with the PMA-30's ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files via the digital inputs. Your music has never sounded better.



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.

 
 

High quality headphone output

For top audio fidelity the PMA-30 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-30 features an adjustable headphone impedance control, with 3 settings for low, medium and high impedance headphones which provide proper matching of headphone impedance and amplifier gain. The headphone jack features a 6.3mm connector for compatibility with premium home and professional studio headphone models.

Pure class elegantly designed

The Denon Design Series stands out, thanks to its combination of soft-look aluminium, bright silver tone accents and a mixture of glossy and matt black surfaces. Crisp OLED displays tell you all you need to know at a glance, using icons and text. And the PMA-60 and DCD-50 make a real statement also when used horizontally or vertically.




Real Hi-Fi in an essential style

The Design Series is all about superb sound – and maximum style. Only with Denon’s sophisticated digital technology, and over a century of audio engineering expertise, has it been possible to combine all that performance with a compact and truly unique design. Look at the Design Series, and you’ll agree it lacks nothing, combining beauty and performance. Listen to the Design Series, and prepare to be amazed.

Hi Fi News Highly Commended
“There’s good slam with the ‘Mixes’ set from the Pet Shop Boys’ three-disc ‘Pop Art’ package….with both attack and control. And yes, the little Denon amp will go loud, too – within reason – without showing overt signs of distress.”

“…the live recording of U2’s ‘The Joshua Tree’… there’s no denying that this cute Denon amp punches out the bass-lines and drums like a good-un, doing its best ‘little engine could’ impersonation, while offering a persuasive view of Bono’s vocals and The Edge’s jangly guitar.”

HI-FI NEWS VERDICT
“…This is a well-judged, highly commercial product – and it’s none the worse for that.”
