The High End 2022 fair in Munich is now in full swing. And while we’re sure to see many exotic and expensive products in the coming days, there are also things that are actually affordable to buy.

Denon, for example, is putting out two integrated amplifiers and a CD player.

The Denon PMA-900HNE is an integrated amplifier in a classic hi-fi design. Although we are at the affordable end, there is a full set of both analogue and digital inputs. Including turntable input. Most notably, HEOS, familiar from AV receivers and multi-room speakers, is built into the amp, so you can use your music streaming services directly.

In the same series comes the CD player(!) DCD-900NE, which in addition to the shiny silver discs we remember from our youth, can also play music files from external media via a USB port.

The Denon PMA-1700NE looks like a successor to the excellent PMA-1600NE. Here, the MOS-FET push-pull output with high current capacity is featured. The digital input supports high-resolution audio signals up to 11.2 MHz DSD and 384 kHz/32-bit PCM.

can 1600 owners get firmware upgrade to include Heos?

Improved music streamers from Auralic

Auralic Aries G1.1 and Altair G1.1 have been overhauled in terms of aesthetics, isolation and vibration dampening, and finally offer AirPlay 2 support.

Don't buy the European version

The Sony NW-WM1ZM2 is a fantastic piece of craftsmanship. But avoid the version for the European market.

The best buy in its class

Pro-Ject Debut Pro marks the company's 30th anniversary with style and finesse.


The little brown NAD amplifier caused a sensation. No one had heard such great sound from a small amplifier that cost so little.

Prefers good recordings

Although the Elipson P1 is the company's first preamplifier, it is pleasantly free of bugs. If you're looking for an amplifier set at the upper end of the premium class, the answer may well be French.

Grows with the tasks

Elipson's power amplifier works treacherously small. But it's really a heavyweight that gets the best out of your best recordings.
