Arcam have always produced fantastic Home Theatre sound as well as great stereo. Their range or ‘AVR’ receivers offer some sound choices for the cinema enthusiast. Couple this with their "r" series products - including the ridiculously useful rBlink BlueTooth DAC - and there are some fantastic solutions for home audio from the folk at Arcam.
All of these products are on display in the shop so if you would like to take a listen, please call or email and book an appointment.
A word from Arcam:
The company's early work was in high-performance mixing desks for recording studios, but it wasn't long before the two were making hi-fi amplifiers, beginning an engineering-led business still innovating and making the most of music and home cinema sound almost four decades later.
In that time we've developed a huge amount of in-house expertise, not to mention plenty of unique products: in 1988 we launched the first offboard digital-to-analogue converter, or DAC, to improve the sound of CD players, and in 1999 a high-quality DAB radio tuner for use with hi-fi systems. We even developed our own Dolby S cassette deck, and built it here in the UK – the only British hi-fi company skilled (and brave!) enough to do so.
We've 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 we've also developed our own DVD players and, more recently, Blu-ray players from scratch here in the UK, engineering them using our 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.
Yes, we listen – we're a company of music-lovers, after all – but we also test and experiment in a scientifically rigorous manner. We like to say that ‘we measure what we treasure'. We know that the better the engineering benchmarks we deliver the better the results we – and our customers – hear.
