The High End show is currently taking place in Munich and a number of brands are presenting upcoming products for the year.

One of these big brands is the Japanese electronics manufacturer Denon and they have announced a new series of 900 hi-fi splitters along with the integrated PMA-1700NE amplifier.

Let’s start with the 900 series, which consists of an integrated PMA-900HNE network amplifier and a DCD-900NE CD player. The amplifier is Denon’s first to have built-in integration with HEOS, a streaming technology that allows playback from Spotify and Tidal-like HEOS applications, and makes the PMA-900HNE multi-room compatible with other HEOS products.

The 900HNE is designed to sit at the center of the living room experience, “providing an exceptional listening experience” whether you’re watching TV, playing games or listening to music. It is equipped with an 85-watt high-current amplifier design and a large power supply to get the best performance from each speaker. Along with HEOS, it has AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth connectivity, and the PMA-900HNE is also compatible with lossless files such as ALAC, FLAC and WAV up to 24-bit / 192kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz / 5.6MHz.

The DCD-900NE CD player complements the PMA-900HNE amplifier to create a full stack “capable of playing any type of digital music”. Denon engineers have included advanced digital processing and filtering of the AL32 Processing Plus signal to reproduce recordings with precision and clarity. Its USB port can play PCM up to 24-bit / 192kHz and DSD 2.8MHz / 5.6MHz. The chassis is designed to be vibration resistant, isolating the player from any unwanted energy that could damage its performance.

Above these products in terms of performance is the PMA-1700NE. With 140 watts per channel, the 1700NE aims to provide an audiophile listening experience. The connection includes both analog and digital sources, including vinyl record collectors, equipped with both moving magnets (MM) and moving coils (MC) phono cassettes. Coaxial and digital inputs open the device for use with TVs and media players. Other connections include A / B speaker terminals and subwoofer pre-out.

In terms of file support, the PMA-1700NE can reach 11.2 MHz DSD and up to 32-bit / 384kHz from PC, USB-B port connected to main clock and high-performance DAC that suppresses jitter for best performance during playback.

Like the DCD-900NE CD player, the 1700NE features a vibration-resistant design, as well as electronic volume control for smooth adjustment of output levels, gold-plated speaker terminals and analog inputs for a source to prevent corrosion over time and maintenance of reliable connections.

The PMA-1700NE launched in June for $ 2099 / £ 1699 / € 1999. The PMA-900HNE is available in July for $ 849 / £ 899 / € 999, while the DCD-900NE is available in June for $ 499 / £ 449 / € 499.
