For the most convenient music streaming from Apple iDevices, the DRA-100 comes with built in AirPlay technology. Also, an OLED, a USB-A connection, two optical and one coaxial input and Spotify Connect are present and correct. With Denon's Master Clock design jitter is reduced, sound is correctly localized and your sound space is thoroughly realistic.
For the ultimate fidelity with 16-bit, 20-bit and 24-bit digital audio tracks, the DRA-100 features Denon’s Advanced AL32 digital audio processing system. Featured on Denon's premium audiophile disc players and digital audio components. Advanced AL32 processing up-converts, digitally filters and noise shapes lower bit data to full 32-bits, delivering remarkable dynamic range and noticeably better low level resolution. Your favourite digital audio tracks have never sounded better.
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. The supplied remote control features an ergonomically designed layout that includes a cursor keypad, source select and volume controls, set up menu button, a Bluetooth button and a display dimmer button.
Built In Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
The DRA-100 features Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity. Connect to the internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favourite tracks from streaming music services such as Spotify Connect. You can also choose from thousands of internet radio stations around the world. With AirPlay, you can enjoy listing to your favourite tracks wirelessly from your iOS device, including the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and the DRA-100 is also DLNA 1.5 certified for compatibility with your home PC or Mac.
Full Digital Amplifier
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
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.
Equipped with a dedicated headphone amplifier circuit that features a high speed ultra low distortion wideband op amp that's paired with a fully discrete final output stage. In order to accommodate the widest range of headphone types, the DRA-100 features an adjustable headphone impedance control, with 3 settings for low, medium and high impedance headphones which provide proper matching of headphone impedance and amplifier gain. The headphone jack features a 6.3mm connector for compatibility with premium home / professional studio headphone models.
Stream your favourite audio tracks from your portable devices via the DRA-100's Bluetooth connectivity, which features quick and easy pairing. For even faster pairing, the DRA-100 features NFC (Near Field Communication). Simply activate your NFC-enabled Bluetooth device and place it next to the N mark on the DRA-100 (located on the front panel), and it’s instantly paired with no need for manual pass code entry.
The stylish and elegant compact chassis features deluxe finishes including soft aluminium matte with bright silver tone accents and glossy and matte black surfaces. The OLED shows the source selected via graphical icons and text as well as the sampling frequency and data format of digital sources.
