Arcam AVR400 A/V Receiver

Sound & Vision Magazine
25 July 2011
  • Excerpt: What exactly is a high-end A/V receiver? Is it the most expensive and feature-rich model in a manufacturer’s line? Is it a model with power specs above a certain level?

Arcam AVR-400

What Hi-Fi?
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The AVR-400 is the entry-point (for which read ‘most affordable’) of Arcam ’s three-strong multichannel receiver range.

Het begin was er al met de Dolby ProLogic receiver AVR100 en er werd steeds geïnnoveerd door het team van ontwerpers.
