Bottom Line:   
Just picked up a Denon 2400 a in mint condition to drive some vintage Maggies MP1 from the seventy's. Previously was powered by an Audio Research d-60. The old set up was nice but underpowered and would make lots of other speakers sing but not the Maggies. What a difference the clean power did with the depth of the maggies. Now the speakers sound as they intended too, sweet. A long time ago I had a home made speakers that was driven by a Sunn Magna 3800 power amp that had similar specs to the Denon 2400 A. Feel like I'm 20 years old again.

Bottom Line:   
The Denon POA 2400a amp was made during Japans golden hi-fi period in the 80's. There are many excellent amplifiers by different Japanese manufacturers from this period that are still highly sought after in the vintage collector market and this amp is no exception.

The Denon POA 2400a has an incredibly open soundstage with a great sense of depth. Individual musicians positions are revealed and their performances never seem congested or veiled. This amp is extremely revealing without ever sounding strident. The Denon POA 2400a effortlessly presents the gentle and subtle harmonic overtones to the listener in an accurate and non fatiguing manner. The highs are accurate and the bass is tight and very well controlled. The only mild criticism for this amp is at times the midrange can seem a little thin. This is a small criticism for an amp that can be purchased for less than $500.00 on the vintage market.

To find an amp with similar quality in todays market you could easily spend over $2000. The Denon equipment coming out of China today just doesn't do justice to the reputation that Denon garnered from its past triumphs like the POA2400a.

Bottom Line:   
bought this new round 1987 for $700 use it 4yrs. and got a aragon 4004 amp the aragon sounded better on top & bottom ends had a sweeter med range so i put the denon away, wend i moved to new place i pluged
my stuff in the recepical, it was reversed polairity and the wirers on the roof coming into the house were touching that made 110v to 220v i smelled smoke
and the aragon never worked right after that so i used my yamaha rx-v1 reciever for two channel &home theater system and it sounded good but was mission something then i remberd that i had the denon amp so i put it into my system
and was i surprised it cleaned up the highs & tighen up the lows. i think the poa-2400 is one of the best amps for the money out there, but i had to modify it, changed the plasitic 4 speaker post to 2 good ones disconnected the two volums controls did this mod yrs ago, this amp sounds so good i cant believe it, i had this gem stored away so long
denon made a mistake with these amps, made them to good, there suff is crappy now

thanks,

joe
