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
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
