Integrated amplifier with enhanced audio dynamics

The Denon Integrated Amplifier PMA-520 features a High-Current Single-Push-Pull circuitry to achieve both strength and detail in music playback, which is Denon’s focus for its pure audio amplifiers. The relay switch used for CD and Phono input contains an inert gas to prevent the occurrence of noise that can negatively affect the signal. In addition, durable parts strictly selected for their contribution to sound quality, such as the large-capacity block capacitor for the power supply circuit, high-quality sound carbon resistors, and high-quality sound capacitors, are also used. Each individual part employed in configuring the circuits reflects this emphasis on high fidelity. For improved convenience, the remote control unit that comes with the PMA-520AE includes the main functions that control Denon CD players.

High Current (HC) Single-Push-Pull Circuit for musical detail and power
The Denon Integrated Amplifier PMA-520 incorporates HC transistors with 2 to 3 times the electrical current supply capability of conventional power transistors for audio. Denon’s acclaimed HC Single-Push-Pull Circuit has been inherited from its high-end models which, together with a fully discrete amplifi er design, produces a powerful sound fi lled with beautiful musical details.

High-speed, high-capacity power supply circuit for HC Single-Push-Pull
The Denon Integrated Amplifier PMA-520’s power circuit uses a block capacitor that Denon engineers have jointly developed with a parts manufacturer and a Schottkybarrier diode that features low internal resistance for low loss, short recovery time, and negligible rectifying noise. This highly stable electrical current supply further brings out the expressive power of sound produced by the HC Single-Push-Pull Circuit.

Wide dynamic range, supporting high-grade audio sources
The Denon Integrated Amplifier PMA-520’s tone control and power amplifier circuit have been carefully adjusted to secure a frequency response of up to 100 kHz during actual use. Also, improvements in the volume circuit suppress noise in the amplifier to achieve high sonic resolution. These features and others give the PMA-520AE plenty of latitude to handle the wide dynamic range of high-grade audio sources such as Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio.

Main transformer with separate power supplies for analogue
The coiled wire within the power transformer for the audio signal and control circuits has been separated to eliminate mutual interference and adverse infl uences on sound quality. The Denon Integrated Amplifier PMA-520 also has a separate transformer to minimize power consumption when in “standby”. Ensuring a more environmentally friendly design.

Antigua MC170


Either placed on shelves or on stands, The new Antigua MC170 impress with their easy sonic integration and musical versatility. The three-way speaker is fitted with a new coaxial twoway driver, for a wide dispersion and uncompressed sound reproduction, homogeneous in every direction  


The new two-way midrange/tweeter of the MCl 70 range is a development of the unit responsible for the continuous success of the Cabasse Eole coaxial satellite. lt offers a faithful reproduction of timbres and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in its price segment, for both stereo and multichannel use.


The specific shape of the 17cm (6.7in) driver unit was specifically designed by Cabasse for maximum mechanical rigidity and low frequency use, which results in a deeper bass without coloration. The voice coil mounted on Kapton is perfectly ventilated: high power handling and its acceleration abilities are outstanding.  


The Cabasse measuring protocol in the anechoic chamber takes into account measurements on the listening axis and at 360° a round the speaker for perfect control of the directivity and global power output in keeping with the Cabasse HDSE principle (Homogeneous Distribution of the Sonic Energy). Direct and reflected sounds are homogeneous, the sound stage wide and stable.
