“These new AVR’s are quite simply, the highest performing AV receivers Arcam has ever made and some of the finest in the world” says the company’s latest press release.

The new Arcam AVRs are serious video & audiophile products that are equally at home with high-resolution surround or two-channel music.

Featuring Dolby Atmos and DTS-X (future free firmware upgrade) and HDCP 2.2 this receiver is as futureproof as an AV Receiver can get.

Further enhancing the performance of the new AVR550 and AVR850, Arcam has also included the very latest room correction technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live® for Arcam gives 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.
