These days, AV receivers are everywhere. Many of them requiring a fair bit of time to setup. The Arcam however, is a breeze to use. Straightforward in design and execution, the Arcam was ready to roll in just a couple of minutes. The even better news about the Arcam is how good it sounds. Their signature warm sound was evident across the different kinds of music/movie soundtracks. It may lack the slightly tighter sounding bass and more precise channel separation of the newer AV receivers but it makes up with a more enveloping, soothing sound across the speakers, like a warm “cuddling” while you listen to it.
Cosmetically, there are scuff marks here and there and a few small spots where the paint has come off the edges. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping. An Arcam remote is included.
