Denon Electronics, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-quality home entertainment products that is celebrating 100 years of innovation and technology leadership in 2010, has debuted their special-edition Anniversary Product Collection (A100). With seven new home entertainment components that offer discriminating consumers an opportunity to become a part of Denon's century-old legacy of innovation and craftsmanship, these limited special-edition Denon Anniversary Product Collection includes the PMA-A100 Integrated Amplifier ($2499), DCD-A100 CD/SACD Player ($2499), DP-A100 Direct-Drive Turntable ($2499); DL-A100 Cartridge ($499), AVR-A100 9.2 Channel A/V Receiver ($2499), DBP-A100 Universal Blu-ray Player ($2499) and AH-A100 Over-Ear Headphones ($499). All A100 products will be available beginning in November 2010 at select Special Anniversary Denon dealers. Denon engineers and employees are musicians and music lovers. They dream, imagine and work across a broad canvas of tools and technologies to design the most innovative new products. All Denon A100 anniversary products come in a special carton with, for the first time in Denon's history, a five-year warranty and signed certificate of authenticity from the chief Denon production engineer who handcrafted the product. Also included is a richly detailed Denon "brand book" that explores the company's long and storied history. Each A100 component is finely tuned and reflects the commitment to passion, artistry and technology that has defined Denon in its first 100 years.

Denon's DP-A100 turntable features the same high-performance Denon direct-drive turntable technology that has delivered high-precision rotation for 40 years. Equipped with the DL-A100 cartridge, the DP-A100 is capable of masterfully reproducing the energy and beauty of analog records. In 1961, Denon jointly produced the now iconic DL-103 cartridge with NHK for use at FM stations. The DL-103 was able to play stereo LP records with high fidelity and reliability (providing easy handling and stability). The basic design of this model continues to achieve first-rate performance and plays an active part in today's world of Hi-Fi audio enthusiasts. Reflecting this engineering expertise and innovation, the new DL-A100 cartridge represents the standard model that has been in production for a little less than a half century - now reborn with the latest tuning for pure enjoyment.

The Denon PMA-A100 is an integrated amplifier that echoes the company's many years of audio technology development and innovation. To enhance sound quality, the amplifier inherits Denon's UHC-MOS Single Push-Pull output circuit and features newly engineered construction, forming a solid foundation for pure, clean sound quality. This high-performance component includes special anniversary tuning, superior construction and parts, including a larger, upgraded speaker terminal, cast iron footing for less vibration and higher sound quality. The PMA-A100 is designed to perform seamlessly in an integrated home entertainment system with its anniversary partner, the DCD-A100 CD/SACD player. Featuring Advanced AL32 Processing, a highly accurate master clock and the latest 32Bit/192 kHz DA converters to dramatically boost the quantity of digital audio information and ensure audio accuracy, the DCD-A100 also includes a new advanced S.V.H. drive mechanism that guarantees accurate and high quality playback of SACDs and CDs. It is equipped with a full complement of digital input ports, including a USB port for connecting an iPod or USB memory. Like the PMA-A100, the DCD features a 100th anniversary signature badge affixed to its black high-gloss front panel.

I don't understand the pricing model. The integrated is nothing more that a rebadge PMA-2000ivr which I own for $600.

The only piece of Denon gear I have ever owned is the Denon DVD-2800. I still use it in my office to play CD's. It also decodes and plays HDCD's. I have it connected directly to my HeadAmp headphone amplifier, and it sounds very good. Other than this one piece, I have passed on Denon.

What, you don't think it will be the basis for the next McIntosh TT if they ever decide to sell another one.

that AVR A100 is pretty nice too..latest/greatest audio decoding..external amplification capable, with 2 sub woof connections and best of all, it uses the abchor bay video processor/upscaler.
best bang fer the buck Denon AVR is the 2310 as the 2311's are out and can be had for about 1k.
Hell, I dint even know denon been around a 100 yrs.. lol

Dan i seen and heard this TT and beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course.........and for me it is very,very ugly and the sound was NOT on par with a TT of this price $2000-$2500K...........its also Made in China which kind of surprised me considering their other 100 Year anniversary gear is Made in Japan...........this TT has a very cheap feel and look to .The price should be $799 or there abouts.God its ugly

The tt is a rebadged Denon DP-500 which used to sell for $799 I believe. They just dressed it up in a high gloss plinth and decided to charge an extra $1,700 for the priviledge
