NEW ARCAM AMPLIFIERS
At Lyric we have now been selling Arcam products for 30 years, so I feel we know quite a bit about them and what they represent.
Arcam don’t make the cheapest products, however for a bit more you can own a special piece of kit which will sound better, last longer, and make you smile.
I see people every month who say something like ‘ I’ve had my Arcam for 15 years now and it’s been brilliant, can I have another one?’
Arcam create fantastic brand loyalty by producing great products engineered to perform and to last.
Latest additions to the Arcam range are in the stereo range
The new HDA range has two amplifiers , SA10 and SA20, and an unusual streamer with cd player combination.
Also unusual is that the amplifiers feature digital inputs as well as analogue, maybe less pure than a Rega but more flexible
The SA20 also features a Class G amplifier, Arcam's route to thje highest performance and it actually does sound much better. Tha SA10 is £ 695, SA20 £ 995

The CD streamer CDS 27 sounds excellent and offers a simple route to a toe in the water of streaming for those who are mostly using cds as their primary source, and great value at £ 699
And now the dedicated streamer, the ST60 is running in the shop.
Not only does this sound good but the new app makes it far easier to use. At £ 1099 it bridges the gap between a BlueSound and a Linn/Naim
Arcam AV Separates
The new ones are excellent, an audiophile performance on music as well as great effects on films, streaming music also included
