Power Amplifiers From Arcam

16th September 2019

Arcam has announced a trio of new power amplifiers to its HDA range: the PA240, PA410 and PA720

The three power amplifiers here combine a mixture of AB and Class G amplification. 

The PA410 is the sole Class AB design here, delivering four channels, rated at 70W each.  It includes a toroidal-based power supply and, “…an acoustically damped chassis, and paralleled transistor output stages,” said the company. 

The PA240 and PA720 are both Class G in amplification, implementing multiple supplies rather than just a single supply. The idea, said the company, is to run the amplifier with, “…less wasted heat energy.”

The PA240 is a two-channel machine, enabling 2 x 380W Class G amplification or 1 x 790W Class G bridged mode.
