    Question Arcam AVR390 to AVR850: Can anyone definitely hear differences in the amps?

    If I've understood correctly, the Arcam AVR390, 550 and 850 have identical(?) processing and number of channels handled at the preamp stage, but different power amp sections (in power, number of channels, amplifier type etc.). Can anyone definitely hear the difference between any of these three...

    Arcam AVR850 Playing 5.1 DTS on 7.1 system

When I play a Dolby Digital-encoded 5.1 music disc, only the 5.1 speakers play -...

I rather like my Cambridge 851A hi-fi amp as it has 2 XLR connections into my Roksan Blak CD player and Cambridge 851N...

    AVR850 or AV860 plus P7?

    I've had AV8 and AV9 but I moved away from Arcam processors a few years back because they'd fallen behind on features and room correction, so ended up with the Yamaha CXA5000 processor. One of the reasons was I realised I hardly listened to music any more - most of the use being TV, XBOX and...

    Arcam AVR850 no longer detecting Atmos signal

    I've had the pleasure of owning an AVR850 for about 5 months now and absolutely love it. I bought the Atmos demo Blu-ray Disc and it blew me away. About a week ago, the 850 stopped detecting the Atmos signal from source. I bought The Martian on UHD blu-ray and noticed the Atmos setting in...
