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 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.

Totally Agree….It is a shame…..

I got an AVR 30 from Best Buy last week and had to choice but to return it. It does not work. The bass and treble only scroll down and not up. The on screen display is a one row liner now at the bottom of the screen. Looks like DOS metrics. I had an AVR 850 and it worked perfectly and sold it. It is a $6500 paper weight. Also, once i complete the speaker levels i have to turn off the machine to reset it as oppose to the amp simply playing the music i was previously listening too. I called ARCAM directly and they seem to have no idea about these issues. Lastly, my best friend bought an AVR 30 too and has identical issues but when he pauses his AVR 30 and then un-pauses it, the volume does not come back on. What has ARCAM done? Other than that the unit sounded great. LOL

Blimey, Gary – that doesn’t sound good at all. A sorry tale, indeed. Must admit that’s the first time I’ve heard of issues re. Arcam. What’s your next move? Are you looking at another product?

Sorry meant to say i had no choice but to return it.
