Sound is the same, still fantastic
New pricing in the catalogue, yes of course they had to increase for this!
And now there is also an AVR5 at just £ 1999 !
Call or drop us a line to make an appointment to hear this for yourself!
So why does the big daddy AVR31 cost £2k more?
That's the power amps, they are ClassG delivering up to 200W! Lovely.
Drop me a line for a listen, the AVR21 is now featured in our demonstration room.
There will also be a processor only at £ 4999, AV41
All change at Arcam !
But they say it's staying the same, only better.
Arcam has been acquired by Harman International, owners of Harman Kardon, JBL, Mark Levinson, Revel, Synthesis and Lexicon.
And in turn Harman is owned by Samsung
The upshot of all this is that this 'specialist product group' will now be run in the UK by Arcam Sales so they will be trying to have us stock all the above lines. Mmmmmaybe not!
Also Arcam's clever av amplifier designs will appear in the next generation Lexicon, Harman Kardon and JBL products
Also if Arcam go into lower cost AV then it could be made by Harman
Also Arcam could design new Harman Kardon AV amps as HK are a bit in the doldrums just now.
Also there will very soon be new Arcam stereo amps

Arcam Cinema Night
Excellent night, thanks to Mick Neal from Arcam is coming to visit us.
For an amazing home cinema we used a big Arcam amplifier running a Dolby Atmos 7.1.2 cinema set up using 10 Kef speakers and a mighty Velodyne 15" subwoofer, boom boom boom!
Drop me a line to experience a set-up like this
To prove what a big difference the Arcam new amplifiers make here is a message from a happy client:
I have set up my new Arcam AVR 450, biwiring the front and centre speakers as you suggested and connected everything else up.
It is brilliant - such a step up from the previous AVR 300. Currently streaming off my NAS drive using bubbleUPNP on android to control the music. Everything is taking a new lease of life.
Will try film later tonight - can't wait.
This guy has been delighted with his AVR300 for about 10 years and is even more delighted with the new one!
