Denon PMA520AE Integrated Amplifier – : Good value Amplifier. I like.

Wow sound for wow money amp. I needed to replace an ageing marantz amp which had broken and needed an amp which i believed would sound good and for not a lot of money. Having previously owned a denon pm250 amp many years ago which i liked i decided that pound for product i would go for this. I had read the reviews and most of them were favourable. I am so glad i went for this. Despite my old marantz supposedly being superior i am hearing things i have never heard before. I find the music now more precise and engaging , which at this price point is pretty amazingmy system is a denon cd520 , pro-ject essential turntable and q accoustics 3050i speakers.

I am very pleased with this amplifier. It is so powerfull,that i dare not play it at full power. It reproduces amazing sound from my vinyl lp ‘s many of which are 50 years old. I had had a denon amplifier before and the new one is every bit as good as i had expected it to be.

With great sound reproduction. Superb amp ~ exactly what i required and quality what i would have expected from denon. Works perfectly with tv, sky, pc & laptop sound feeding through it, with great sound reproduction.

Quality amplifier with amazing sound.

Incredible sound and super loud. Bought this to hook my laptop-tv combo to get a decent sound when watching shows, and it is superb. Tested it with some music i had on the laptop and the sound really is incredible. It is so loud and crystal clear, way louder than a cambridge audio amp i have in the living room and a lot more volume than you will ever need. I had it up as far as 12 o clock at one point and it was just way too loud to bear (no distortion, just ear-splitting). I don’t see anyone being disappointed with this , so buy it. I have mine hooked up to wharfedale diamond 9. 1 speakers which seems to be a common set up and it’s a match made in heaven. I think the downstairs room will be getting a cd player to go with this now, and some extra long cabling so i can move the speakers along the hall into the kitchen.

Denon PMA520AE Integrated Amplifier – Black : Coupled with my jbl speakers, this amp is not only beautiful to look at, but powerful, crisp and clear with some nice functions and a great remote.

Denon pma520ae intergrated amplifier. . Brilliant amp wired up and in use in five mins , now able to listen to my vinyl properly , sound quality great neighbours think so also.

Absolutely brilliant piece of kit. The sound it produces – even through quite small speakers – is better than anything i’ve used before.

Good product and meant with my expectations. Quick delivery and very well packaged. Good product and meant with my expectations.

This amp is the bees knees,it does everything it is supposed to do,all the connections are very simple,and the build is very robust. Good sound,and the remote works very well. Would buy from this make again.

I bought this to replace an old amp that kept on cutting out. The range is enormous, which made the choice more difficult. My priority to find a good price-quality balance. I use this amp in the home and with very good quality speakers. Even the people who visited could hear that the sound was better than before. The volume range is great, though one could question why finctions are produced for a volume that one could not tolerate on a deserted island. It will most certainly be an opportunity to volume boundaries for young persons in my homegreat looking, good quality product all round.

I am just getting into the better quality world of turntables and amps etc. So what i’ve bought, including this, is based on recommendations by people who know much more than me. I have a rega rp1 performance pack, connected to this amp and wharfedale diamond 9. 1 speakersi guess this is best described as a decent good value amp for people like me starting to get into this stuff. However, with limited basis for comparison it sounds great to me. The bass does come out a bit heavy on certain things but but there are bass and treble knobs so you can very quickly find the right balance for your ears if the bass is a bit heavy for you. The design is also very smart and fairly minimalist (which i like) not too many bells or whistles, just what you need. If you’re like me wanting something to get you started or to connect to your tv setup then you can’t go wrong with this amp. One point i would make is that the description says you get an audio cable, but i didn’t get one. Not sure if this is just my box was missing one or if there shouldn’t be one. I bought my own cables anyway to connect this to my speakers so it didn’t matter to me, but it might be worth bearing in mind if you’re expecting this to come with cables.

    I really like this amplifier. It is intelligent enough to switch its self off at night. Good sound quality as long as you dont want it too loud.

      1. Really high quality amp for the money. Very heavy compared with the pioneer amp it replaced. Weight doesn’t ensure excellence but it’s a good sign of quality.

    1. Very good bit of kit, just wish the bass control had a little more effect. Also would like bass/treble on the remote control. However this should last many years and well pleased with the quality.

    1. Excellent build and finish snappy and energetic timing taut bass. I recently bought this amplifier for my living room for my bose acoustimass speakers. Pros: excellent build and finishsnappy and energetic timingtaut bass and clear highscons:unyielding sound that will not suit all songslacks dynamic subtletybuild:build quality is excellent. The denon is solid and weighty, with black or premium silver finishes and an array of buttons and dials that have just the right weight and feel to them – it’s a pleasure to use and feels like a quality piece of hi-fi kit. There are five line-level inputs – ample to connect to your cd player, streaming device and so on – and a moving-magnet phono stage for a turntable. Two sets of speaker outputs, tape loop, and headphone and preouts round up the exhaustive list of specs. Straight away the denon sounds strong and confident, with good levels of clear detail. We’d definitely keep the source direct button on – it bypasses the tone and balance controls for a more subtle and purer sound. The 720 retains that surefooted sense of timing that we praised in the 710, with the added benefit of a tauter, more controlled bass. This amp does have a penchant for a forward-sounding midrange/treble, but there’s no excess brightness to that top end, which has space to breathe.

    Looks great and does exactly what you’d expect. Looks great and does exactly what you’d expect. I haven’t lgot bored yeat watching the motor adjust the volume via the remote. Great clarity and volume, it’ll power much more powerful speakers that i have. I’d thoroughly recommend this product.

    I bought this denon unit through ebay for £122 but even at this price i was surprised to find there was no input for a sub-woofer. I have since noticed the 720e has such an input, one lives and learns i guess. I am no audiophile but i can’t help feeling my old denon m10 series midi system was better and for all its age still is working.
