The Arcam DiVA series AVR300 is a high performance 7.1 channel AV receiver designed to sit between Arcam’s 5.1 channel AVR200 and the award-winning FMJ series AV8 processor and P7 power amplifier. It makes considerable use of the experience gained with the AV8 to offer the feature set and audio performance required in today’s demanding AV marketplace.
Both the stereo and multi-channel performances of the AVR300 are exceptional, made possible with a huge toroidal power transformer and seven identical ultra low distortion power amplifiers designed to audiophile standards. There is a direct signal path for both stereo signals and the 7.1 multi-channel input. Power output is 120 Watts per channel into 4 or 8 ohms (two channels driven) and 90 Watts per channel with all seven channels driven. Preamplifier outputs are available for use with external power amplifiers. An independent second zone, with stereo line level audio and composite video, is supported. RS232 control is built in as standard; this also simplifies system software updates.
The master DSP chipset is the new Crystal CS49400, with 24-bit and 32-bit processing; the audio DACs, ADCs and volume controls are from Wolfson Microelectronics.
Unit includes CR80 remote control, AM & FM antennas, and a copy of the manual. The only blemish (if it can be called that) is a slight circular color discoloration smaller than a dime on the top surface. Short or that it is basically in mint condition with the clear plastic still on the front screen panel.
