Master Clock Design
This Denon Master Clock design reduces jitter and ensures that sound is correctly localized and your sound space is thoroughly realistic.
Full Digital Power Amplifier for Powerful and Detailed Sound
The amplifier section incorporates DDFA® technology. The output stage circuit has a discrete construction which realizes higher Signal-to-Noise-ratio and lower distortion compared to conventional class D amplifiers. This advanced amplifier system delivers superior audio fidelity along with high amplifier efficiency at 70W into 4 ohms. The premium grade multi-way speaker connectors let you connect speaker cables via bare wire, pin connectors as well as banana plug connectors.
High Resolution Audio Including DSD via Network or USB
Thanks to the DLNA 1.5 compatibility, you can enjoy music file streaming from your computer or NAS drive most conveniently. The DRA-100 supports MP3, AAC, WMA, and even high resolution audio tracks of up to 192-kHz/24-bits (WAV, FLAC, AIFF) along with DSD 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz files (DSD is the advanced digital audio coding system of SACD). The same file support is given through the front USB port, which in addition can directly play back music from your iDevice using the DRA-100’s high performance audio circuit.
Multiple Digital Audio Inputs and Analogue Stereo Input
In addition to the USB-A input, the DRA-100 features 2 optical digital audio inputs and 1 coaxial digital audio input. There are also two stereo analogue inputs for connection to legacy analogue sources.
