ARCAM expands HDA line, adding three AVRs, three power amplifiers and an AV processor
Three new AVRs
The AVR10, AVR20 and AVR30 instantly embolden ARCAM’s receiver offering.
Embracing the crisp styling of the new HDA range, the new models form a fine-looking trio, offering you an easily navigable path through a handsome selection of features and benefits.
An impressive 12-channels of class A/B power amplification.
Exemplifying sound quality and engineering excellence, it features full Dirac calibration, as well as all the latest codecs from Dolby Atmos, DTS:X 7.1.4 and IMAX Enhanced.
Further features include 4K (UHD) HDMI2.0b with HDCP2.2 ability, Bluetooth connectivity and seven HDMI inputs.
Ups the numbers of channels of AB amplification to 16, again bringing extensive features and connectivity, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 9.1.6 decoding, and Dirac Live® for room correction.
Employs Class G amplification, enabling 16 channels of remarkably efficient and patently impressive power. As well as showcasing the latest codecs from Dolby, DTS, and IMAX Enhanced, all of the new models enable GoogleCast streaming, work with ARCAM’s free MusicLife and Control apps, and use audiophile level DACs.
Clean in looks and effortless in operation, the new ARCAM AVRs accommodate a wealth of cutting-edge AV technology, making getting the best from these machines an undemanding process.
Three new power amps
Introducing a trio of new power amplifiers to its HDA range, ARCAM presents the PA240, PA410 and PA720.
Class AB design delivering four channels of power, rating at 70W each, and featuring best-in-class components, including a toroidal-based power supply, an acoustically damped chassis, and paralleled transistor output stages.
PA240 and PA720 adopt Class G amplification, a complex design approach at which ARCAM excels – implementing multiple power supplies rather than just a single supply, much like a hybrid car engine, ARCAM’s Class G amplification delivers greater efficiency and transparency, with less wasted heat energy.
Two-channel machine, enabling 2 x 380W Class G amplification or 1 x 790W Class G bridged mode.
Seven channels of Class G power, available as 7 x 140W.
Both the PA240 and PA720 come equipped with balanced XLR inputs and all of the new power amps enable ethernet and RS232 control.
Bringing ARCAM’s power amplifier family up to date, the new threesome promises some serious muscle, complete with the option of dynamic Class G technology
New AV processor
ARCAM’s new 16-channel AV processor certainly has ‘its badges’ – from Dolby Atmos to DTS:X to IMAX Enhanced to Dirac Live®, the AV40’s fascia does well to so elegantly display its extensive skills.
Switch your attention to its rear panel and you spot further evidence of the machine’s flexibility, with highlights including: 16 pro-grade XLR outputs, 16 single-ended RCA outputs; seven HDMI inputs; three HDMI outputs; 4K (UHD) HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2; and ethernet, RS232 and IR control.
It is also Bluetooth-equipped, integrates an FM/DAB/DAB+ tuner, and employs the ESS 9026PRO audiophile DAC.
This is a machine that not only delivers stunning realism for the ultimate home cinema experience, but also takes supreme care of music duties.
A perfect partner for the PA240, PA410 and PA720 power amplifiers, the AV40 is set to further cement ARCAM’s reputation as maker of the world’s most musical sounding AV equipment.
