Arcam, based in the famous university town of Cambridge in England, has built a world-class reputation for phenomenal audio and video performance through meticulous engineering and finely honed design expertise. Their products are definitely no ordinary run-of-the-mill and are designed by a team of purists for people who want easy to operate products that deliver absolutely amazing sound.
The Arcam AVR-600 7.3 Home Theatre Receiver’s discrete styling hides a huge high current seven channel, 120 Watt per channel power amplifier and without doubt some of the most advanced audio and video processing ever seen in a high performance Home Theatre Receiver. The AVR-600 Receiver represents a tour-de-force of Arcam’s design skill and technical prowess.
There is no doubt that Arcam have always placed the major emphasis on sound or sonic performance with all their products over the last 30 years or so. Many manufacturers of ‘audiophiles electronics’ thought that surround sound was maybe a gimic and didn’t (most still haven’t) address the public demand for a Home Theatre product that combined audiophile performance on both video and music sources. Arcam have addressed the issue with both the AVR-500 and AVR-600 models and have not just equaled the competition, but have buried it on all fronts.
The Arcam AVR-600 is not a cheap product, but neither is it outrageously over-priced, trading on a name or high profile image. It is as UK magazine What Hi-Fi stated in a review “worth every penny”. And that is from a publication that is known for its ruthless approach to reviewing Hi-Fi components. Yes, they gave it a 5 star rating and that is because it delivers 100% in every area: (1) superior sonic performance; (2) amazing video flexibility; (3) multi-room and custom features. Guaranteed not to disappoint.
