Denon crowns its compact design series with an all-rounder: thanks to the HEOS module, it offers all network functions including multi-room integration and access to numerous music streaming services. As a DAC, it accepts files from a PC via USB at up to 384 kHz (PCM) and 11.2 MHz (DSD). It also offers two optical inputs and a coaxial digital input, as well as a USB-A port for sticks, etc. Analog sources can be plugged into two pairs of RCA sockets. WLAN, Bluetooth and Airplay 2 are also included. 4 Ohm loudspeakers are fired by the Class D amplifiers with 2x70 Watt, while a separate amplifier module is responsible for headphones. Song titles, artists, etc. appear on the three-line OLED display. The PMA-150H has the noble workmanship in common with the five other components of the Design series. For example, it can be optimally complemented with the DCD-100 CD player. The new all-rounder will be available from mid-September for 1200 Euros.

The manufacturer simply calls it an "integrated network amplifier", but the PMA-150H also has a FM/DAB receiver and a full USB DAC on board.
