This is exceptional performance, by any standard. Distortion was very low, as you can tell from the spectrograms.

The overall THD figures are tabulated in the chart, at 0. This time around the results were near-perfect, with channel balance improving to 0. The 1kHz wave was nearly perfect, and the 10kHz wave showed a very fast rise-time with very little rounding.

And for the price, excellent hi-fi performance. At 1kHz, the Denon delivered a little pma-700we again watts, or Even the two sidebands were an excellent —95dB.

The Denon was no slouch into 4O loads either, producing watts Distortion increased at rated output, as would be expected, pja-700ae the lower-order harmonics increasing in level, and additional, higher-order components appearing above the noise floor. With the tone controls engaged, the low-frequency response slopes down from 1kHz to end up 2dB down at 80Hz and a further 0.


What Hi-Fi?

This is not a large error: You can download a pdf of the original magazine pages on which this review was published, which includes all the graphs, test result charts, tabulated results lma-700ae oscillograms mentioned in the test results, by clicking HERE or on the graphic at right. As you can see, what little ringing there was was quickly damped. David Ella and tested by Steve Holding Magazine: Damping factor was very good: However, all the low-order harmonics were at or below —80dB 0.

Since I was interested to re-check the balance and frequency response tests on a fresh sample, I borrowed a brand-new PMAAE and had Newport Test Labs rerun the balance and frequency response tests on this second sample. Phase error at 20kHz was a little on the high side, pma-700ae nothing to be concerned about.

Channel separation was good, with a best of 79dB at 20Hz, reducing to 72dB at 1kHz and 48dB at 20kHz, however the balance between the left and right channels was very slightly out, with a 1. Of some significance was the CCIF intermodulation test, which pma-700ze two sidebands at 18kHz and 21kHz surrounding the 19kHz and 20kHz test signals but only the tiniest re-generated signal at 1kHz, at —dB.


Stability into an extremely capacitative load was excellent. You can clearly see the power supply limitation at 20Hz however, where the Denon returned watts Square wave performance was excellent, with the Hz square wave showing negligible tilt and almost no curvature across the flats.

With a 4O load, the second harmonic component crept up to —90dB 0.
