Digital Integrated Stereo Amplifier

Overview

Enjoy superior audio fidelity with the latest high resolution audio sources with the Denon PMA-50 digital integrated stereo amplifier, which features USB connection to your PC or Mac to play high-res PCM and DSD audio tracks. PCM tracks up to 24-bits/192-kHz, 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz DSD tracks are supported.

 

You can also enjoy listening to your music from your favorite portable device via wireless Bluetooth® connectivity, and the PMA-50 features NFC touch pairing along with multi-point Bluetooth connectivity. For optimum wireless audio fidelity the PMA-50 features CSR aptX® Low Latency decoding that delivers CD-quality sound.

 

There are multiple digital inputs (2 optical and 1 coaxial) for compatibility with digital audio sources along with an analog stereo input for legacy analog sources.

 

The advanced Class D digital amplifier features DDFA technology that provides high efficiency and low distortion and the PMA-50 is rated at 50 watts per channel into 4 ohms, for compatibility with the widest range of speaker types.

 

The compact chassis features deluxe styling and is sized to fit just about anywhere, including home and office desktops as well as home studios, and it can be positioned horizontally as well as vertically.

 

Full digital power amplifier

for powerful and detailed sound

The amplifier section incorporates DDFA® technology from CSR. The output stage circuit has a discrete construction which realizes higher Signal-to-Noise-ratio and lower distortion compared to conventional class D amplifiers. This advanced amplifier system delivers superior audio fidelity along with high amplifier efficiency at 50W into 4 ohms.

 

The premium grade multi-way speaker connectors let you connect speaker cables via bare wire, pin connectors as well as banana plug connectors.

 

Advanced AL32 Digital

Audio Processing

For the ultimate fidelity with 16-bit, 20-bit and 24-bit digital audio tracks, the PMA-50 features Denon's Advanced AL32 digital audio processing system. Featured on Denon's premium audiophile disc players and digital audio components, Advanced AL32 processing upconverts, digitally filters and noise-shapes lower bit data to full 32-bits, delivering remarkable dynamic range and noticeably better low level resolution. Your favorite digital audio tracks have never sounded better.

 

DAC Master Clock design

In order to reduce jitter, Master Clock is re-generated in the PWM modulator. This Denon Master Clock design ensures that sound is correctly localized and your sound space is thoroughly realistic.

 

USB-B Input for High resolution

Audio including PCM and DSD

Via the USB-B input, you can connect your Mac or PC to the PMA-50 and enjoy high resolution audio tracks. The PMA-50 can play high resolution PCM files of up to 24-bits/192-kHz along with high resolution DSD 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz files (DSD is the advanced digital audio coding system of SACD). A USB-A to USB-B cable is included.

 

To eliminate induced digital noise via the USB input, the PMA-50 features a dedicated noise isolation block prior to the digital amplifier and D/A conversion block that prevents digital noise from degrading the audio fidelity.

 

Bluetooth Connectivity with NFC and Multi-Point

 

aptX Low Latency Decoding

For CD-quality audio playback, the PMA-50 features the latest generation CSR aptX Low Latency decoding, which provides optimum time synchronization when playing back audio from video sources with no lip sync issues.

 

High Quality Headphone Output

with Selectable Headphone Impedance

For top audio fidelity the PMA-50 is equipped with a dedicated headphone amplifier circuit that features a high speed ultra low distortion wideband op amp that's paired with a fully discrete final output stage.

 

In order to accommodate the widest range of headphone types, the PMA-50 features an adjustable headphone impedance control, with 3 settings for low, medium and high impedance headphones which provide proper matching of headphone impedance and amplifier gain.

 

The headphone jack features a 3.5 mm connector for compatibility with premium home and professional studio headphone models.

 

Compact Chassis with

Vertical or Horizontal Placement

The stylish and elegant compact chassis features deluxe finishes including soft aluminum matte with bright silver tone accents and glossy and matte black surfaces.

 

For optimum placement versatility the PMA-50 can be positioned either horizontally or vertically and it features removable feet and screw caps that are quickly and easily re-configured.

 

The PMA-50 features an automatic display orientation function that detects if the amplifier is mounted vertically or horizontally and adjusts the display accordingly.

 

Multiple Digital Audio Inputs

Analog Stereo Input

In addition to the USB-B input, the PMA-50 features 2 optical digital audio inputs and 1 coaxial digital audio input. There's also a stereo analog input for connection to legacy analog sources.

 

Ergonomic Remote Control

The supplied remote control features an ergonomically-designed layout that includes a cursor keypad, source select and volume controls, setup menu and back buttons, a Bluetooth button and a display dimmer button.
