Denon has unveiled a trio of new Hi-Fi components at the Munich High End Show.The new 900 Series includes the first Denon HEOS built-in integrated amplifier in a standard size chassis, the PMA-900HNE (pictured top), alongside the matching DCD-900NE CD player with USB playback.

With streaming convenience to the fore, the PMA-900HNE has Wi-Fi network connectivity, as well as AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, and multiroom audio capability.

Completing the brand's new line-up is the PMA-1700NE, a premium integrated stereo amplifier with a power output of 140W per channel. This traditional Hi-Fi hero has a built-in phono stage for vinyl fans that caters for both moving magnet and moving coil phono cartridges. Additional connectivity includes an optical digital input and subwoofer pre-out. 

The PMA-1700NE provides support for high-resolution digital music up to 11.2-MHz DSD and 384-kHz/32-bit from a computer using the USB-B input mated to a precise master clock and high-performance DAC, designed to suppress jitter during digital playback. The chassis design is described as vibration-resistant.

The PMA-1700NE will sell for £1,699. The DCD-900NE and PMA-900HNE are priced at £499 and £899 respectively.
