Denon Unveil New Smart Streaming Amp
Japanese audio brand Denon has announced its new compact network amplifier, built around streaming to target “modern audiophiles”.
The PMA-150H can stream music directly from a variety of services like Spotify, Tidal and Deezer, as well as via Airplay 2 and Bluetooth.
The amplifier can also use the high-res HEOS multi-room streaming platform.
Other components can be connected via two analogue RCA inputs, two optical and a coaxial digital input.
Four amplifiers using Qualcomm’s next-generation Direct Digital Feedback Amplification (DDFA) push out 70 watts per channel.
There’s also a pre-out for a subwoofer.
While the streaming capabilities are meant to attract younger customers, the amplifier also supports FM and DAB+ radio.
The Denon PMA-150H is due to release overseas this month priced at around £1,099, but a lack of demand means there are currently no plans to bring the product to the Australian market.
