Product Information

Featuring advanced ultra-high current single push-pull circuit power, Advanced AL32 Processing, and MM/MC phono equalizer, the Denon PMA-1700NE integrated amplifier delivers extraordinary sound quality with precise detail.

High-power 140W integrated amplifier

Drive your loudspeakers with 140 Watts of power per channel into 4 Ohms. This integrated amplifier offers compatibility with the widest range of 6 speaker types and impedances for operational stability.

Advanced AL32 Processing Plus

Advanced AL32 Processing Plus supports high-resolution 384 kHz/32-bit audio sources. The algorithms restore information that was lost during the digital recording to ensure detailed playback.


To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the PMA-1700NE provides USB-DAC functions that support high resolution up to 11.2-MHz DSD and 384- kHz/32-bit PCM input signals. Crafted with exceptional quality, the DAC suppresses jitter and ensures optimal precision in D/A conversion.

High-precision electrical controls

The PMA-1700NE embraces electrical volume, balance, and tone controls while preserving the analog feeling of operation. The unique mechanism offers smooth, linear control.

MM and MC phono equalizer

The PMA-1700NE includes a phono equalizer that supports input from both MM and MC cartridges. The simple, straightforward design significantly improves sound quality.

Optical and coaxial digital inputs

The PMA-1700NE features two optical inputs and one coaxial input and supports PCM signals up to 192 kHz/24 bit.

External pre-amp input terminals

“EXT/PRE” input terminals are fixed gain inputs that can be used for connecting an external pre-amp using the PMA-1700NE as a power amp.

TV auto standby (digital input)

The PMA-1700NE includes autosensing to automatically switch the unit on when it senses a digital audio signal from an external source like your TV.

Six-block chassis configuration and direct mechanical ground construction

Constructed with 1mm-thick steel plates and made of ABS resin with rigid rib construction, the chassis protects the signal circuits from external vibration and eliminates adverse effects of mutual interference among the circuits.

Digital isolator

Equipped with a high-speed digital isolator, the PMA-1700NE eliminates adverse effects on sound quality caused by high-frequency noise from a USB-connected computer or digital inputs.

Analog mode

Analog mode can be used to turn off power to digital power sources and completely stop the operation of the digital input circuitry, avoiding any high-frequency influence on the analog section.

Excellent Stereo Amplifier.
The best sounding stereo amplifier I’ve ever owned.I primary listen to Apple Music ALAC files and LPs. Sound is warm and distortion free at 80db.

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!
