The Arcam SA10 Stereo amplifier has digital inputs so that your TV, CD/DVD/Blu-ray player get the maximum quality of sound. The perfect choice for music lovers, it also features a dedicated phono input turntables.

Arcam spare no expense in using only the most high-quality components, so you don’t have to compromise on how your music sounds.

A singer’s sharp intake of breath before hitting the chorus; a guitarist’s fingers sliding against the strings – it’s those seemingly minor details that can bring music to life. Fish out one of your all-time favourite albums and play it through a Bluetooth speaker, and guess what? Its sounds like a Bluetooth speaker. Play it through the SA10, and it’s as close to hearing the artist’s performance as you’re likely to get. There’s always joy in digging out an old recording you haven’t heard in years. With the Arcam SA10, it’ll feel like hearing it for the first time.

The Arcam CDS50 is a CD and network player with built-in music streamer delivering the highest standard of replay.

With the CDS50, you don’t need to decide between CD quality or streaming convenience, because you’ve got them both - performing to an exceptional standard.

Stream from your device via built-in WiFi or wired ethernet, and make use the standard DAC (Digital to Analogue converter) for other components like your TV and games console.

Quality components for best performance
The design of the HDA range draws upon all of Arcam’s experience as one of the UK’s most respected audio companies, to produce Arcam’s best performing range of audio products yet. Using the best quality components and engineering practices, the HDA range is designed and built to give you years of listening enjoyment.

Music as the artist intended
Arguably, when playing from a digital format, the most vital component is the DAC, or Digital to Analogue Converter. We’ll spare you the bulk of the science, but this is what translates that otherwise lifeless binary code into audible sound energy that’s worth hearing. Bit-depth, meanwhile, is a key measure of audio quality.

So, if you’re listening to a 24-bit WAV copy of your favourite album through a DAC that only converts to 16-bit, there’s a good chunk of detail going to waste right there. That’s why Arcam have included 32-bit DACs on the entire HDA range – the most commonly used bit-depth in digital recording – so you’re guaranteed the full aural picture of whatever the artist intended.


 



1 x Arcam SA20 Integrated Amplifier

There are two frequent problems with hi-fi amplifiers. Class A, the traditional audiophile’s choice, uses a single power supply constantly running at full capacity, even when there’s no signal coming through.

Great for reproducing those subtle details at low levels however struggles provide extreme power when needed. Class A/B, the most common amp class, switches between the two internal amplifiers, one for each half of the waveform. 

Far more efficient but often a recipe for crossover distortion, since those low-level details we crave can get lost within any mis-match between the two switching over. Class G is essentially a hybrid amplifier, utilising Class A specifically for low-level signals, but when required switching in an additional power supply to power those larger sections of the waveform.
