Denon is one of the oldest hi-fi and home theater brands around and is celebrating its 110th birthday this year! To celebrate this event, the Japanese manufacturer has released the Denon A110 Anniversary Series, which includes four exclusive models:
- The Denon AVC-A110 A/V receiver
- The Denon PMA-A110 stereo amplifier
- The Denon DCD-A110 SACD player
- The Denon DL-A110 phono cartridge
The Denon AVC-A110 A/V receiver is HDMI 8K 60Hz and HDMI 4K 120Hz compatible and features amplification across 13 channels. Ideal for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X/DTS:X Pro and Auro 3D installations, this receiver also supports HDR Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and HLG formats. Moreover, it is ready for gaming with its HDMI connectors and VRR, QFT, QMS and ALLM compatibility.
The Denon AVC-A110 A/V receiver is retailed at €5,490.
The Denon PMA-A110 stereo amplifier delivers 2 x 80 watts into 8 ohms and 2 x 160 watts into 4 ohms thanks to a massive power amplifier with an Ultra High Current (UHC) circuit. This integrated stereo amplifier is equipped with high-end components, symmetrical architecture, a huge power supply and an aluminum chassis with a beautiful silver/graphite finish. Its connectors include analog and digital inputs and a USB-B port to connect a computer and benefit from decoding provided by four PCM1795 DACs. A phono input compatible with MM and MC cartridges is also present.
The Denon PMA-A110 stereo amplifier is expected to be available for €3,500 upon request.
The Denon DCA-A110 CD and SA-CD player also features optimized architecture with four Burr-Brown PCM1795 DACs used in mono mode to reduce noise and optimize channel separation. The proprietary Ultra AL32 digital processing is also included and is responsible for oversampling content up to 32-bit/384kHz. The latest generation Intel Cyclone 10 chip, a programmable logic circuit, is built into the heart of the Denon DCD-A110’s digital circuit to support the massive amount of data required for Ultra AL32 processing.
The Denon DCA-A110 player will be available for €3000 upon request.
The iconic Denon DL-103 moving coil phono cartridge, which has been in the manufacturer’s catalog since 1964, needs no introduction. The Denon DL-A110 is the anniversary version of the latter. Still hand-wound at the headquarters in Shirakawa (Japan), it comes inside a beautiful case and is accompanied by a headshell and a cleaning brush.
The Denon DL-A110 headhell has the same silver/graphite silver as the other elements in the Denon A110 Anniversary range and features an SME connection. It guarantees perfect cartridge support and alignment to eliminate any unwanted vibration. The playback of the information engraved in the record’s grooves is all the more precise and the reproduction of the low frequencies is optimized.
