So why does the big daddy AVR31 cost £2k more?

Drop me a line for a ten, 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
