Here's more info on the PMA-A110:
The Denon PMA-A110 is the ultimate choice for music enthusiasts seeking to build their dream two-channel Hi-Fi system and marks the highest-end integrated amplifier Denon has introduced to the North American market. Powered by Denon's patented 7th generation advanced Ultra High Current (UHC) power amplifier, the PMA-A110 integrated amplifier delivers 80 Watts at 8ohms (20kHz-20Hz, THD: 0.07%) of ultra-clean power per-channel. It can capably deliver massive current output to drive even the most demanding speakers and ensure superior linearity at the output stage panels, custom die cast feet and a copper transformer plate for superior isolation.
Offering masterful precision and refinement with exceptional dynamics and the ability to elevate fine details, the PMA-A110 helps brings music to life. Denon engineers carefully constructed the amplifier circuit to secure a frequency response of up to 100-kHz during applied use. The volume circuit suppresses noise in the amplifier, achieving high sonic resolution. The PMA-A110 handles a wide, dynamic range of Hi-Res audio sources with tone control and power throughout. In addition, the Quad D/A converter which uses the Burr Brown PCM1795 chip operates in a quadruple configuration for optimal high-grade sound. Each channel has two PCM1795 chips working in a different mode to achieve the highest accuracy and best signal to noise ratio.
The PMA-A110 is also equipped with Ultra AL32 Processing, the latest in analog waveform reproduction technology from Denon. By using data interpolation algorithms and supportingHi-Res384-kHz/24-bit PCM signal input, these algorithms interpolate points that should exist before and after the points in large quantities of data to achieve a smooth waveform that is close to the original signal.
Users can easily connect both analog and digital sources, including a turntable to the built-in phono preamp compatible with both Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC) cartridges. Effortlessly enjoy high-resolution digital audio content using jitter-suppressing Coaxial, Optical or USB-B inputs connected to an exceptional Quad DAC for unparalleled playback quality of PCM up to 384kHz and DSD up to 11.2Mhz (aka DSD 256). The PMA-A110 is the ideal foundation for a modern audiophile music system when paired with the 110-year Anniversary Edition DCD-A110 SACD player and the DL-A110 MC phono cartridge, both engineered and specially tuned by Denon Sound Masters to achieve ultimate performance.
