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.
Price and availability
The DCD-900NE and PMA-1700NE will both be available in June for €499 and €999 respectively. The PMA-1700NE will arrive in July at a price of €1999.
