With HEOS Built-in, you can stream music from Amazon Music (HD), Spotify Free and Premium, Tidal, Deezer and more or local music file libraries.

Designed with the company’s proprietary Current Feedback amplification and Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM-SA3), the PM7000N features a toroidal transformer and high-speed instantaneous-current power supply, which provides 2x 60W into 8 Ohms or 2 x 80W into 4 Ohms.

There’s a newly developed preamplifier section too.

Te DAC handles up to 24bit/192kHz and DSD5.6. Streaming content can additionally be delivered using Bluetooth or Apple AirPlay 2. 

The digital circuit is installed into a shielded case, “minimising potential interferences” said the company. You also get Pure Mode that disables USB-A, Network, Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth, either individually or simultaneously. A phono amp is also featured that integrates a FET (field-effect transistor) in the input stage.

The PM7000N is equipped with four analogue inputs and one analogue output, and features one coaxial and two optical digital inputs, along with a USB-A input.

You can connect a TV or cable/satellite set-top-box and a Blu-ray or DVD player to either of the three digital audio inputs (Optical 1 and 2, Coaxial 1).

All of the digital inputs can automatically wake the PM7000N when sensing an audio signal, and the TV remote control can be programmed to directly operate the master volume control, mute, power on/off and source selection of the PM7000N.

The subwoofer output features an adjustable low-pass crossover to tailor bass response.

Price is  £999 from 15 November.

    It seems this model could clash with the NR1200 receiver for potential customers, especially since the latter has DAB and is much less expensive though may not sound as good.

    I was thinking of the NR1200 to go with the QAcoustic 3020i’s if they sound ok.

      Indeed – sounds like a nice choice, Mike.

      There’s a casual review of the NR1200 on YouTube. It seems to me the NR1200 would benefit from a slightly livelier speaker like the B&W 606.
