"Denon has taken its hi-fi amplifier expertise and added HEOS streaming and multiroom to the front, surprisingly for the first time. It’s a cracking combination."

Denon PMA-900HNE

Bring out the best from your analogue, digital, and streaming sources with the Denon PMA-900HNE Integrated Network Amplifier.

The Denon PMA-900HNE Integrated Network Amplifier, featuring Advanced High Current amplifier design, delivers superior audio from analog and digital sources. With phono input, digital inputs for TV sound, plus network audio streaming by HEOS® Built-in, Denon PMA-900HNE upgrades your listening experience from any source.

Key Features

• 85 Watts per channel power output (4ohm, 1kHz, THD 0.7%)
• 50 Watts per channel power output (8ohm, (20Hz - 20kHz, THD 0.07%)
• Advanced High Current (AHC) single-push-pull circuit power amplifier
• 4x analogue inputs including a high-performance MM/MC phono connection
• 5x digital optical inputs for connecting your TV, USB, or digital source devices
• Hi-Res Audio Certified with 192kHz/24bit playback via digital connections
• Built-in music streaming via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay 2 capability
• Enjoy rich, evenly dispersed bass with a subwoofer output
• Impeccable sound engineering with carefully selected and rigorously tested Hi-Fi parts
• Engineered with a more than 110-year Denon legacy in audio excellence

"Denon’s PMA-900HNE is a perfect choice for music lovers building an affordable system with wide functionality and powerful sound. The company’s proven Advanced High Current technology is on hand to capably drive partnering loudspeakers and – in a first for a Denon integrated amp – HEOS wireless streaming and app control join a connections roster that also includes Bluetooth and a headphone socket. Using the PMA-900HNE with a turntable or television is also possible too, the latter via its ability to learn the commands of a TV remote. Pick it up with Denon’s equally affordable DCD-900NE CD player and you have a brilliant two-box system that covers all the bases."

"You can just add speakers, or plug up a load of sources. Denon’s hi-fi division makes its first move on the smart amplifier market, adding the HEOS streaming platform to a traditional-looking hi-fi integrated amp. It’s a successful formula."
- Jez Ford, Sound+Image Magazine

Advanced High Current Integrated Amplifier

Engineered with premium Denon amplifier technology and Advanced High Current capability, the PMA-900HNE integrated amplifier drives your loudspeakers with 85 watts of power-per-channel into 4 ohms. This integrated amplifier offers compatibility with the widest range of speaker types and impedances for operational stability.

High-Grade Audio Components

Denon engineers carefully constructed the amplifier circuit within the PMA-900HNE using the best audio components to deliver frequency response of up to 100 kHz. The result is powerful sound with detailed, musical accuracy. The PMA-900HNE incorporates Advanced High Current (AHC) transistors with two to three times the electrical current supply capacity of conventional audio power transistors. The acclaimed Denon AHC single push-pull circuit is adapted from high-end models to join the discrete amplifier in the PMA-900HNE, producing powerful sound with musical fidelity.

Digital Audio Inputs

Connect your TV, media player, computer or any digital source via the Optical and Coaxial digital inputs for an exceptional audio performance with the built-in DAC. The PMA-900HNE features three optical inputs and one coaxial input and supports PCM signals up to 192 kHz/24-bit to improve sound quality of your TV audio and more. Also, the USB-A connection can be used to input high-resolution sound from an audio source on your computer.

The PMA-900HNE includes auto-sensing to automatically switch the unit on when it senses a digital audio signal from an external source like your TV.

MM and MC Phono Equalizer

The PMA-900HNE includes a phono equalizer that supports input from both MM and MC cartridges. This phono equalizer has high gain, and unlike loops in other circuit board patterns which cause adverse effects on sound quality, the simple, straightforward design significantly improves sound quality.

Hi-Res Audio Certified

Enjoy your audiophile-quality digital collection from a USB drive or through your network connection including formats like MP3, ALAC, WAV, FLAC HD, and DSD.

Built-In Music Streaming

Extend your audio experience with nearly unlimited sources. The HEOS® Built-in Wi-Fi connects to your network to provide near-limitless streaming options. Listen to a wide array of online music services or connect to a smart device via AirPlay 2 or Bluetooth. Supports Spotify, Amazon Music, TuneIn, Deezer, and more to wirelessly stream and enjoy the most popular music services.

Works with Voice Assistants

Control the PMA-900HNE hands-free with Amazon Alexa and your voice. Adjust the volume, skip to the next track, and more—“Just Ask.” Requires Alexa app and Amazon Echo, Dot, or equivalent.

Ask your Google Assistant speaker or phone to stream your favourite songs. Control volume, play, pause, skip tracks, and more.

Signal Level Divided Construction

The audio circuit uses the Signal Level Divided Construction (SLDC) chassis developed by Denon to ensure that delicate musical signals are faithfully amplified and transmitted to the speakers.

Main Transformer with Individual Wiring

Separate coiled wires for the audio and control circuits of the PMA-900HNE’s main power transformer eliminates interference and maintains exceptional sound quality.

Vibration-Resistant Design for Pristine Sound

Vibration-resistant design reduces the adverse audio effects of heavy components within amplifiers resulting in pristine sound quality that meets Denon standards.

High-Precision Electrical Volume Control with Variable Gain

The PMA-900HNE embraces electrical volume control while preserving the analogue feeling of operation. The unique mechanism offers a smooth and absolutely channel-linear control of the master volume
