Features - PMA-1510AE

The PMA-1510AE is endowed with a renowned Denon tradition: the simple & straight UHC-MOS single push-pull amplifier circuit. Amplifier construction, the foundation of expressive sound, has also been redesigned to place greater emphasis on low specific gravity and more direct grounding. Rich musical expressiveness in a class of its own is achieved with the same large, 27-mm motor-driven volume control that’s used on the high-class PMA-2010AE.

New Features

  • Newly-developed heat sink, to suppress vibration caused by resonance point
  • System remote control unit to control not only the amplifier but also a CD player
  • Lower power consumption at stand-by 0.1 W (in Eco Standby)
  • The Schottky barrier diode used in the PMA-1510AE has 1.5 times more capacity than previous models
  • High-grade volume control for precise quality management

High quality sound

  • Ultra-High Current (UHC)-MOS Single Push-Pull Circuit, for balancing details and power
  • High-current, dynamic power supply, to support high speed and large current flow

Technology- PMA-1510AE

  • UHC (Ultra High Current)-Single-Push-Pull-Circuit

    For the past ten years, the dream of power amps has been to support low impedance speakers. Unfortunately, however, the fulfilment of this dream has always been a difficult proposition and Denon eventually felt the need to rethink its approach. The result has been to combine high output power with detailed musical expression, a high grade solution that is the first of its kind.

    The challenge facing Denon has been to amplify with dynamic strength and absolute clarity the creative energy transmitted by the artist and to keep apace with the ever-changing musical signal levels. A hefty power supply unit with ample reserves and a power amp that is capable of supplying pure, dynamic signals to the speakers so that the music is heard with absolute transparency are the primary requirements. Also required are transient response characteristics that amplify even low level signals with impeccable precision. No matter how superior the dynamic range or the frequency charatistics may be, these features are meaningless if the amp cannot instantly follow the sudden rises and falls in sound.
