Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.

Featuring advanced ultra-high current single-push-pull circuit power with Schottky barrier diodes and Advanced AL32 Processing, the Denon PMA-1600NE integrated amplifier delivers music that’s faithful to the original recording. With two digital inputs, a rear USB-B input, MM and MC Phono inputs and equalizer, enjoy impeccable sonic quality from your vinyl collection, and during playback of high-resolution files up to 384kHz/32bit and DSD up to 11.2MHz from a computer. Quality construction and unique Denon technology provides unmatched performance for your cherished music collection from a brand with a more than 100-year legacy of audio innovation.
High-Power 140W Integrated Amplifier
Power your loudspeakers with the Denon PMA-1600NE integrated amplifier. The PMA-1600NE delivers 140 Watts of power-per-channel into 4 Ohms. This integrated amplifier offers compatibility with the widest range of speaker types and impedances for operational stability.
Build Integrity with Thoughtfully Selected Components
With more than a 100-year legacy of designing premium audio components, trust that your Denon product has undergone rigorous testing. The overall aesthetic, sound quality and design integrity of PMA-1600NE and its Hi-Fi components are built to last.
Advanced Ultra High Current MOS
Provided in a single push-pull configuration, the PMA-1600NE features Advanced UHC-MOS technology that eliminates deviations in the amplification stage and balances high power with delicate musical details. This circuit masterfully reproduces the full sonic range, from the delicate musical nuances to the powerful peaks of rich musical expression. Advanced UHC (Ultra High Current)-MOS technology utilizes a minimum number of high-current amplifier elements to balance advanced speaker drive capabilities and improve sound quality. Advanced UHC-MOS is an ideal amplifier whose power supply performance is superior to that of bipolar transistors and incorporates the sound quality advantages of MOSFETs.
Advanced AL32 Processing Plus
Supporting 384-kHz/32-bit PCM input
The PMA-1600NE is equipped with Advanced AL32 Processing Plus, the latest in analog waveform reproduction technology from Denon. Advanced AL32 Processing Plus utilizes data interpolation algorithms, which support high-resolution 384 kHz/32-bit audio sources. The algorithms add in the points that should exist before and after large quantities of data, smoothing out the waveform and restoring information that was lost during the digital recording. The resulting playback is highly detailed, free of interferences, richly expressive in the lower range and beautifully faithful to the original sound. Listen to songs as the artist intended.
Supporting 11.2-MHz DSD and 384-kHz/32-bit PCM
To accurately synchronize digital circuits, the PMA-1600NE 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. In addition, the DSD transmission methods support ASIO native playback and DSD Audio over PCM Frames (DoP). The D/A converter used in the PMA-1600NE is the same 384-kHz/32-bit and DSD capable premium DAC used in the DCD-1600NE to deliver a clean, high-grade sound.
6-block Chassis Configuration and Direct Mechanical Ground Construction
Constructed with 1.0 mm thick steel plates and made of ABS resin with rigid rib construction, the chassis in the PMA-1600NE protects the signal circuits from external vibration and eliminates adverse effects of mutual interference among the circuits. It’s configured of six independent blocks that house phono equalizer and input circuitry, volume control circuitry, USB-DAC circuitry, amplification circuitry, power section, and the control section. With the power section at the center, feet that support the weight of internal components and heat sinks on both sides, the construction is well-balanced and prevents unwanted vibration from affecting sound quality.
MM and MC Phono Equalizer
The PMA-1600NE includes a phono equalizer that supports input from both MM and MC cartridges. This phono equalizer has high gain, and unlike loops in other circuit board patterns which cause adverse effects on sound quality, the simple, straightforward design of the PMA-1600NE phono equalizer significantly improves sound.
Optical and Coaxial Digital Inputs
The PMA-1600NE features two Optical inputs and one Coaxial input and supports PCM signals up to 192 kHz/24 bit. These digital inputs help to improve sound and visual quality of your TV audio, Blu-Ray, media players and more. Easily input high-resolution sound from an audio source on your computer.
Digital Isolator and Analog Mode
Equipped with a high-speed digital isolator, the PMA-1600NE eliminates adverse effects on sound quality caused by high-frequency noise from a USB-connect computer or digital inputs. Since data is transferred magnetically via coils embedded in an IC chip, the input and output sides of the PMA-1600NE are electrically isolated. The PMA-1600NE also features a dedicated secondary winding in power transformer for the digital circuitry to shut out noise from the power source. Analog Mode can be used to turn off power to the dedicated digital power source and completely stop operation of the digital input circuitry, avoiding any high-frequency influence on the analog section. Analog Mode also turns off the fluorescent display, allowing the PMA-1600NE to operate as a purely analog amp (during Analog Mode, USB-B, coaxial digital, and optical digital inputs are disabled).
Main Transformer with Individual Wiring
To eliminate interference and maintain exceptional sound quality, the main power transformer of the PMA-1600NE has separate coiled wires for the audio and control circuits. An integrated micro-processor features Stop Mode for even greater sound quality while you listen.
