"The remarkably complete and sonically gifted Denon PMA-1600NE combines stunning resolution and drive with uncommon grace and subtlety. It's no style statement, but whether digital or analogue, it's the best in its class and quite beautifully built to boot."

Denon is one of the rare audio brands that continued to actively develop Hi-Fi components and accumulate, refine, and pass down Hi-Fi audio technologies. The performance of the PMA-1600NE goes well beyond that of Denon’s previous PMA-1500 series. With its ultimate built-quality, unique Denon technologies and state-of-the-art connectivity, the PMA-1600NE truly is a masterpiece of sound technology.

Thanks to the rear USB-B input and embedded high quality D/A converter, the PMA plays high resolution files up to 384kHz/32bit and DSD up to 11.2MHz from a computer in impeccable sonic quality. For the best performance from analogue inputs, the PMA-1600NE features an Analogue Mode which allows to switch off all underutilised sections like the digital input circuitry or the low noise display for an unaltered audio reproduction.

  • Tick 2 x 140 W (4 ohm) output - Enough power even for big rooms
  • Tick Advanced Ultra High Current (UHC)-MOS Single Push-Pull Circuit Power Amplifier with Schottky barrier diodes - Wide bandwith sound from deep bass to detailed highs
  • Tick DAC Master Clock Design - Jitter-free audio reproduction
  • Tick Rear USB-B input - High Resolution Audio playback up to 384 kHz / 32 bit and 11.2 MHz DSD
  • Tick Digital isolator to eliminate high-frequency computer noise on the USB-B or digital inputs - Enjoy all sources without any unwanted electric noise
  • Tick FL display for source and sample rate indication - Easily capture most important information
  • Tick Analogue AMP Mode switching off digital audio circuitry and display - Pure analogue audio reproduction
  • Tick Advanced AL32 Processing Plus - Digital recordings beautifully faithful to the original sound
  • Tick Direct Mechanical Ground Construction - Minimizes unwanted vibration
  • Tick Chassis construction with 6 independent blocks - Eliminates noises between the circuits
  • Tick Main transformer with separate power supplies for analogue and digital circuits - Preserves audio signal purity
  • Tick 2 Digital Optical and 1 Digital Coaxial inputs; High performance MM & MC Phono Equalizer Amp - Ready for music from all sources
  • Tick Available in Premium Silver and Black - Perfectly matching the DCD-1600NE Super Audio CD Player
Advanced Ultra High Current MOS

Advanced Ultra High Current MOS

The amplifier features Advanced UHC (Ultra High Current)-MOS technology that utilizes a minimum number of high-current amplifier elements to balance advanced speaker drive capabilities and improved sound quality. Advanced UHC-MOS is an ideal amplifier whose power supply performance is superior to that of bipolar transistors and incorporates the sound quality advantages of MOS-FETs. The Advanced UHC-MOS is provided in a single push-pull configuration that eliminates deviations in the amplification stage and balances high power with delicate musical details. This circuit masterfully reproduces the full sonic range, from the delicate musical nuances to the powerful climaxes of rich musical expression.

6-Block Chassis Configuration

6-Block Chassis Configuration

The PMA-1600NE’s chassis is configured of six independent blocks that house the phono equaliser and input circuitry, volume control circuitry, USB-DAC circuitry, amplification circuitry, power section, and the control section. The chassis constructed with 1.0mm thick steel plates protects the signal circuits from external vibration and eliminates the adverse effects of mutual interference among the circuits. The power section has been positioned in the centre of the PMA-1600NE. With heat sinks on both sides, this construction of well-balanced mass is in an ideal location to prevent unwanted vibration from affecting sound quality. In addition, the feet supporting the heavy weight of the power transformer, heat sinks, and chassis are made of ABS resin with rigid rib construction.

Advanced AL32 Processing Plus

Advanced AL32 Processing Plus

For digital input, the PMA-1600NE employs Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, the latest version of Denon’s analogue waveform reproduction technology which utilises unique data interpolation algorithms and also supports high-resolution 384-kHz/32-bit PCM signal input. These algorithms interpolate points that should exist before and after the points in large quantities of data to achieve a smooth waveform that is close to that of the original signal. By carefully restoring data that was lost during digital recording, the resulting playback sound is highly detailed, free of interference, accurately localised, richly expressive in the lower range, and beautifully faithful to the original sound.

Digital Isolator & Analogue Mode

Digital Isolator & Analogue Mode

The PMA-1600NE is equipped with a high-speed digital isolator to eliminate adverse influences on sound quality caused by high-frequency noise from a USB-connected computer or from the PMA-1600NE’s digital inputs. Since data is transferred magnetically via coils embedded in an IC chip, the input and output sides are electrically isolated. By isolating the signal line between digital audio circuitry and the D/A converter, adverse influences of high-frequency noise on analogue audio circuitry after the D/A converter are eliminated. The PMA-1600NE also adopted a dedicated secondary winding in power transformer for the digital circuitry to shut out noise from the power source. During analogue audio playback, the Analogue Mode can be used to turn off power to the dedicated digital power source and completely stop operation of the digital input circuitry to avoid any high frequency influence to the analogue section. Analogue Mode also turns off the fluorescent display, allowing the PMA-1600NE to operate as a purely analogue amp (during Analogue Mode, USB-B, coaxial digital, and optical digital inputs are disabled).

USB DAC

USB DAC

The PMA-1600NE provides USB-DAC functions that support high-resolution 11.2-MHz DSD and 384-kHz/32-bit PCM input signals. DSD transmission methods support ASIO native playback and DSD Audio over PCM Frames (DoP). Since asynchronous transfer is controlled by the PMA-1600NE’s master clock rather than the clock of a computer the transfer is free of jitter. The D/A converter used in the PMA-1600NE is the same 384-kHz/32-bit and DSD capable top class DAC used in the DCD-1600NE to deliver a clean, high-grade sound.

MM/MC Phono Equaliser

MM/MC Phono Equaliser

The PMA-1600NE includes a phono equaliser that supports input from both MM and MC cartridges. This phono equaliser has high gain, and as loops in the circuit board pattern can cause adverse effects on sound quality, the “simple & straight” design represents a significant improvement. On the PMA-1600NE, the MM/MC toggle switch was changed from a push type to a relay type, which shortens the pattern on the circuit board and makes signal loops smaller, allowing delicate analogue signals to be amplified with greater purity.

System Remote Controller

System Remote Controller

The PMA-1600NE comes with a system remote control unit that can also operate the DCD-1600NE and other Denon CD players. The low noise FL display on the product front panel gives source and sample rate indication.
