The PMA-600NE Integrated Amplifier with Bluetooth and the DCD-600NE CD Player will enable music aficionados to enter the next level of music enjoyment with high fidelity playback, these two new products deliver superb sound and connectivity at an accessible price. With carefully chosen components and more than 100 years' experience innovating in the design and engineering of premium Hi-Fi products, the latest 600 series integrated amplifier with Bluetooth built-in and CD player are great options to begin building or upgrading a Hi-Fi system.

PMA-600NE Integrated Amplifier

As the defining audio company of Japan, we have went to great lengths to eliminate interference and maintain exceptional sound quality in nearly every aspect of the new 600 series. The PMA-600NE Integrated Amplifier is engineered with Denon's Advanced High Current (AHC) single push-pull circuit power amplification technology, delivering 70 Watts of power-per-channel (4ohm, 1kHz, THD 0.7%, 2 channel). Similar to the Denon 800 and 1600 Series Hi-Fi components, the PMA-600NE features digital connectivity including Bluetooth streaming supported by 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converter that makes digital streaming files sound amazing.

"No product leaves the Denon factory until it has the Sound Master seal of approval, for which our team in Japan meticulously listens to every product to ensure the voicing and build quality is consistent with other Denon New Era series products," said Shinichi Yamauchi, sound master at Denon. "The new 600 series products have the same precise, clean and powerful Denon sound because they have the same Hi-Fi engineering concept, including advanced components, circuitry, amplification, and layout as other Denon Hi-Fi products. The overall aesthetic, sound quality and design integrity of the PMA-600NE is unparalleled at the price."

To ensure a large dynamic range, our team of engineers carefully selected each component and constructed the amplifier circuit to secure a frequency response of up to 100 kHz. The main power transformer has separate coiled wires for the audio and control circuits as well as an integrated micro-processor that features a Stop Mode. The user-selectable Analog Mode allows the amplifier to operate as a purely analogue amp by disabling digital inputs as well as Bluetooth. Avoiding high frequency digital influences on the analogue selection gives listeners their favourite analogue sources with uninhibited clarity and musical fidelity.

To minimize vibration and the effects of the surrounding environment, the PMA-600NE features direct mechanical sound construction and its proprietary Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC) chassis to ensure only the true and intended nuances of the music are amplified and transmitted.

The PMA-600NE features five analogue inputs including a MM Phono input featuring a new high-gain EQ circuit, Bluetooth wireless streaming, two optical inputs and one coaxial input.

DCD-600NE CD Player

For over 35 years, Denon has engineered premium consumer and commercial CD-players. The Denon DCD-600NE CD Player builds on this heritage. It supports CD, CD-R/RW, MP3 and WMA formats and features Denon AL32 Processing technology ensuring discs always sound their best.

The CD player is outfitted with power transformers fitted immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. For listeners looking to elevate the listening experience even more, the Pure Direct Mode feeds sound directly to the amplifiers by deactivating the front display that might otherwise colour the sound, leaving listeners with clean, accurate audio.

Additionally, the circuit design in the DCD-600NE is thoughtfully engineered to make signal paths as short as possible. With layered circuit boards and shorter circuits, the interference between left and right channels is reduced, and the adverse influences on audio signals are minimized. As a result, the circuit paths in the DCD-600NE reproduce cleaner audio signal that remains faithful to the original recording.

The PMA-600NE Integrated Amplifier at £349 and DCD-600NE CD Player at £249 will be available in September 2019 at authorized Denon retailers.
