    Hi Paul,

    Very nice AVRs in terms of features and surely sound, but do you know why they looks so cheap in terms of look and feel?. In the past ARCAM used to have very robust and solid as rock looks, and now they look like a plastic u$s30 amp.

    It is sad for me because I love ARCAM, in fact I own a stereo amp FMJ A18 that looks much more better than any of the ARCAM new line of stereos amp like the ARCAM SA10.

    It is just my point of view.

    Thanks Paul!

    Regards, Gustavo

      Thanks for your thoughts, Gustavo – I wonder if the Harmon Kardon by-out has influence the aesthetics?

    Assuming these are like the rest of the HDA line, the build quality took a dive – cheap plastic, cheesy looks, far cry from the excellent built and beautiful looks of the classic Arcam FMJ line. What a shame. I am not paying several thousand $/£ for a plastic equipment.
