Arcam SA10


The design of the HDA range draws upon all of Arcam’s experience as one of the UK’s most respected audio companies, to produce Arcam’s best performing range of audio products yet – using the best quality components and engineering practices, the HDA range is designed and built to give you years of listening enjoyment.

In any amplifier, the signal path is at the mercy of anything that creates noise within the unit. Thus, Arcam spare no expense in using only the most high-quality components, even if it means the cost of their power supplies overtaking that of everything else.

The result, of course, is worth every penny.


A singer’s sharp intake of breath before hitting the chorus, a guitarist’s fingers sliding against the strings – it’s those seemingly minor details that can bring music to life.

Fish out one of your all-time favourite albums and play it through a Bluetooth speaker, and guess what? Its sounds like a Bluetooth speaker.

Play it through the SA10, and it’s as close to hearing the artist’s performance as you’re likely to get.

There’s always joy in digging out an old recording you haven’t heard in years. With the HDA range, it’ll feel like hearing it forthe first time.
