Key Technologies

  • HI-Res Audio The ability to decode Hi-Res Audio ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192-kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (SACD) lets you enjoy each note exactly as the artist intended.
  • Ultra 32 Processing Ultra AL32 Processing is the latest in analog waveform reproduction technology from Denon.
  • Prude Direct Mode Pure Direct mode turns the display and the digital outputs off to minimize interference that might color the audio signal. What you hear is clean, detailed, accurate sound.
  • Advanced circuitry The circuit patterns have been engineered to make signal paths as short as possible, reducing interference to reproduce sound that’s clean, highly transparent, and faithful to the original recording.
  • Vibration Resistant Design Power transformers are fitted near the bottom and immediately above the insulators to prevent unwanted vibration. The vibration surrounding the chassis is reduced, resulting in pristine sound.
  • MC Phono Preamp Denon Moving Coil (MC) phono preamps feature a low-noise circuit design for minimal signal distortion, and a high-precision equalizer circuit to restore the warmth and natural sound of vinyl.
  • MM-Phono Denon Moving Magnet (MM) phono preamps feature a high-precision equalizer circuit to restore the warmth and natural sound of vinyl, and a low-noise signal path for improved fidelity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed/wanted! My PMA-1700NE arrived today and I am floored. This replaced an NAD C388 and it is one of biggest improvements to my system. It drives my KEF R3 stand mounts like a champ and pairs beautifully with my DCD-1600NE. The built in phono stage is phenomenal! Couldn’t be happier!

Questions

Hello. I have DCD-1600NE and DRA-800. I'd like to by HIFI amplifier like PMA 1700/1600, but there is couple things which stop me from purches: 1) there is no subwoofer output; 2) input selector on front panel should be like on PMA800/600. Tnx, Alex.

Asked by: alex_s_st
Hello, If your sub-woofer has speaker input ports on it's panel, you can run speaker wire from the PMA-1700NE to your sub-woofer with great results. The input selector dial is the same on the PMA-1700NE as it is on the PMA-800NE, only the selector position is highlighted in the LED display - this allows for greater visibility from around the room for not just the input setting, but also other features selected such as Analog mode and TV Auto-play.

Am I able to connect a powered subwoofer to the "Audio Out" (recorder) ports since there is no dedicated subwoofer pre-out port(s)?

Asked by: Jack A
Hi Jack, One the PMA-1700NE, the recorder out ports are a fixed output, which means it would not lend itself to a connection for a sub-woofer as it would be at full output all the time. If you have a sub-woofer with a set of speaker wire inputs, you can connect the PMA-1700NE using it's speaker B outputs.

Can you set a crossover for subwoofer?

Asked by: RobinFl 71
Hello, The PMA-1700NE does not have a crossover setting for a sub-woofer. A powered sub-woofer will typically have a low pass filter dial on it's control panel. If the sub-woofer has speaker in and out ports, it may well have a high pass filter too. As the PMA-1700NE does not have a dedicated pre-out, your powered sub-woofer will need speaker input ports.

Does the 1700 ne have a fm tuner built in? Does it have input connections for a tuner?

Asked by: Jimbob 62
Hello, The PMA-1700NE is a stereo integrated amplifier. What prevents it from being listed as a receiver is the fact it does not have an FM tuner built-in. There are three analog line inputs on the rear of the PMA-1700NE should you wish to connect an external FM tuner.
