Arcam Solo stereo receiver/CD-player

AVguide
23 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Audiophiles are generally skeptical of multifunction high-end audio components that promise “convenience,” and who can blame them? Haven’t we all, at one point or another, had hopes raised and then dashed by products that promised to do many things, but wound up doing none of them well? I was a skeptic, too, until I plugged in Arcam’s sleek Solo stereo receiver/CD-player.

Arcam Solo Neo

TechRadar UK
17 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The Arcam Solo first saw the light of day around six years ago when most audiophiles had CD as their primary source. That is probably still the case for many but there is increasing demand now for machinery that can handle streamed music, whether it's sourced from the user's home network or from the internet. And streaming ability is what the Arcam Solo Neo brings to the party.

Arcam Solo

What Hi-Fi?
20 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The Arcam Solo has, for a while, been something of a benchmark system at this price level. True, this product wasn't the first all-in-one hi-fi to deliver great sound in a compact package, but it was the first to be a viable separates alternative, even for those who put sound quality first. That's why it has won Awards in the hi-fi system category in 2005 and 2006.
  • Pros: Smooth, warm and entertaining sound, fine build and finish, excellent tuner, good to use, iPod connectivity
  • Cons: All things considered, nothing of significance

Arcam Solo Neo

What Hi-Fi?
18 October 2009
  • Excerpt: The original Solo was introduced back in 2004 and was a great success for Arcam . It created a whole new market for the brand and for many years remained the all-in-one music system to beat. This upgraded Neo version doesn't mess too much with the original's recipe. The outward appearance hasn't changed; instead, the new model expands the feature count while taking performance up a notch too.
  • Pros: Improved transparency, can now stream music from a computer network, excellent tuner section, fine build
  • Cons: Can be a little slow to react to commands

Arcam Solo Neo

6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: De oorspronkelijke Arcam Solo heeft de Britse audiofabrikant geen windeieren gelegd. De verkoopaantallen van dit alles-in-1 apparaat met highend aspiraties waren nog beter dan verwacht. De introductie van de opvolger Solo Neo stemt dan ook verwachtingsvol, zowel bij de fabrikant als bij de internationale hifi-pers.

Arcam Solo Neo

fairaudio.de
16 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Arcam hält mit dem Solo Neo Einzug ins Oberhaus der musikalischen Alleskönner. War der Konkurrent von Naim mit seiner Fülle an Funktionen, seiner dabei narrensicheren Bedienung und seinem untadeligen Klang bislang so etwas wie ein Platzhirsch, muss er nun ein wenig Platz machen. Arcams Neuer kann das alles - fast - genauso gut, ist dabei aber knapp 800 Euro günstiger. Das CD-Laufwerk des Solo Neo klingt zudem vorzüglich.

  • Summary: Arcam przyjechał do tego testu trochę na gapę, co nie zmienia faktu, że jest godny uwagi. Jeżeli kogoś nie interesuje składanie systemu z oddzielnych elementów, a na dodatek nie lubi brzmienia opartego na buczącym basie – ma gotowe rozwiązanie.

  • Excerpt: Lige siden jeg testede Audio Analogues Enigma har jeg tænkt på, at andre da må have fået samme gode ide med at putte hele anlægget ned i én kasse, og stadigvæk være i stand til at levere lyd i hi-fi kvalitet.
