£4,499.00

Brand Arcam

Arcam's flagship AV receiver is one of the finest solutions we've ever heard for music and movies, delivering incredible sound quality with 7.1 speaker packages and hi-fi speakers alike. Offering a level of sound quality that is far above competing receivers, the Arcam AVR850 is a audiophile product by any measure. Equally at home with high resolution surround sound or two-channel music, this amplifier delivers stunning realism with everything from heavy- weight blockbusters to your favourite concert video.

The AVR850 is Arcam’s flagship AV Receiver incorporating Class G Amplifier technology, which in simple terms eliminates distortion at the lower levels of the sound track. It dose this by using multiple power supplies rather than just a single supply used in Class A/B amplification, remember the magic of audio reproduction is not the loud stuff rather it is the tiniest of details that create that sense of reality that we search for. This gives the AVR850 the ability to recreate films and music with a sense of atmosphere and realism which other AV Receivers simply can’t match.

Further enhancing the performance of the AVR850, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live® for Arcam gives the dealer or end-user the ability to tune the acoustic performance of the system to any room situation giving the listener the best possible experience in their own home.

Together with Arcam’s legendary amplifier technology, Dolby Atmos & DTS:X deliver captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. Whether you are listening to music, movies, television shows or playing your favourite video games, Dolby Atmos & DTS:X deliver the full impact of the entertainment experience. Note: for a 7.1.4 system, an additional 4-channel amplifier (or two 2-channel power amplifiers) is required.

Both video and audio stages are designed to embrace both current and upcoming technologies. HDMI2.0a with HDCP2.2 4K “Ultra HD” and 3D video capability are built in.

An internal tuner provides a fully integrated FM / DAB / DAB+ (in appropriate markets) radio solution.   Worldwide access to internet radio stations is provided through the network connection, which also interfaces to UPnP audio servers.  The USB port supports memory devices.

Control is possible via Ethernet, enabling it to be fully integrated with whole house control systems, or via the iOS MusicLife UPnP/control app. RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR control are also included.

The AVR850 are designed in the UK.
