    Is it any wonder that sleep escapes me this morning? Denon’s PMA-900HNE is stunning in both its simplicity of classic looks and excellent and functional feature set.

    Very nice indeed. Thank you for this mornings feastival of equipment previews. I very much appreciate it.

    What? Not “pretentious” enough for the churlishly plebeian set? LOL! 😉
