The ARCAM A5 is for those intimate listening experiences with your favourite music.

The “A” in ARCAM stands for Amplification – this is their core competance.

The A5 is the latest in more than 45 years of amplifier design and manufacture, going back to their first product in 1976 – the A&R Cambridge A60 amplifier.

New components and materials have been painstakingly analysed and reviewed to ensure brilliant sound quality.

So you can play music straight out of the box, the ARCAM A5 includes a Bluetooth solution with Qualcomm AptX Adaptive technology.

This provides up to 24-bit HD audio for the best sound quality from your phone or tablet, no matter what you are playing. It can also connect to Bluetooth headphones so your listening experience can continue sensitively after dark.

Arcam Arcam been developing and making CD players for almost 30 years, and for 40 years the descendants of the amplifier with which the company started in consumer electronics, and as far back as 1995 expanded into home cinema electronics, developing a world-class reputation for making some of the best-sounding AV electronics


In home cinema they have also developed their own DVD players and, more recently, Blu-ray players from scratch here in the UK, engineering them using  decades of experience in CD players to ensure they play music as well as they do movies, delivering better all-round performance than other brands' products. Hard-won techniques for preserving and handling the most delicate signal and reproducing music with all its subtleties, nuances and excitement intact are now in our blood. We know that as audio moves on from CD to even higher definition formats, we're determined our products should continue to serve the music faithfully and deliver maximum enjoyment to the listener.
