Denon PMA-520AE in black

Denon PMA-520AE stereo amplifier

"This surprisingly well specified stereo amplifer gives quite a lot for a price that's incredibly competitive. With 45W per channel it will drive most stand mount speakers comfortably and some floorstanders too. There's plenty of inputs including a phono stage plus tone controls and a source direct feature."

Denon are known for producing good quality but great value stereo amplifiers and with this entry level amp they continue to impress. With a price this low it's surprising how much is crammed in here feature wise - there's tone controls of course but also a source direct function, and much to our delight a phono stage meaning this amplifier can easily and cheaply be partnered with a record deck.

There's good power here at 45W per channel but not the strongest - it's really been designed for stand mount or book shelf speakers so if you are intending to run large floorstanders or you want things loud you may want to look at the next amp up. However, if you are using medium to small speakers then this amp will drive them well.

The only real downside is a lack of A/B speaker switching which isn't critical, just something we like to see. Other than that this amp will meet most peoples needs easily.
