Bargain £999 Arcam SR250 Dirac back at Richer Sounds

The preposterously splendid bargain that is the less than a grand Dirac enabled, twin sub out SR250 has returned to RS.

Isn't buying a software driven Arcam amp the same as finally deciding to do some exercise - bloody painful

Lots of panties twisted perhaps.

But almost every complaint had something to do with the HDMI nonsense.

And who would willingly use that in a stereo amp.

As a stereo amplifier/dac it’s a bargain at a grand, and with Dirac it’s an absurdly fantastic one.

The cheapest stand alone Dirac (the MiniDSP DDRC 24) is around £500 alone.

Bumping this in case it's of interest to anyone.....

Had the RS clearance page bookmarked for a while to see how low these were going to go and bought a refurbed one from London Bridge at a considerable discount on the £635 listed, and they delivered. Only 12 months warranty but no issues at that price. Could be worth a phone call for someone.

A spectacular bargain. I don’t need one but I feel I should buy it anyway 🥳

£530 delivered.

Was marked up as having a couple of light scratches, but all I could find was what looked like a small sticker smudge which wiped off with a damp cloth. Looks perfect to me.

They said I could return if not happy, but at my expense if posting.

Hi all, Cheltenham Richer sounds has (only) 1 openbox SR250 with all accessories and original box for sale at £500. This is a one off and you won't get that price from any other store. If you quick you can get a bargain.

My amp arrives next week 😊

Hope you like it. I spent hours thinking about it off and on last night, trying to decide whether or not to call them this morning to see if they still had it. I don't currently need it but I know a day will come when something fails and I will kick myself for not buying it. I ended up sleeping in very late so missed my chance. Guess it wasn't meant to be!

I'm a bit of an amp whore , I must've tried 15 with the Spendor S6e speakers I bought 4 years ago

All bought used , this is the only new one I've bought , it gets very good reviews so I'm hoping it's as good as I'm expecting it to be.

It's not as if richer sounds is a hifi specialist known only to the elite working out of a shed in Inverness is it , they're still selling on eBay used with no warranty for over £500

Richer sounds offered me a 5 year warranty for £49

With any luck they'll come back with it today. Do let us know your initial thoughts when you get it. I'm very interested to know what you make of it.

This is ridiculous, yesterday a dpd ninja tried to deliver it , today I'm ready for him , it's here, well it was here , for some reason they have it on their system as a swap, as in I've got one to go back, obviously I haven't as I only ordered it on Sunday so I've just watched him put it back in the van and drive away with it.:facepalm:

What a nightmare! You should have given him a big box of cornflakes and told him that's what Richer Sounds were exchanging! Did you pay for delivery separately or was it bundled in the price? If it was an extra cost I dare say you may get RS to refund it for wasting your time.

It was in the price , I now have to make up a box full of cardboard with the RMA number on it so when it comes tomorrow they can stick a label on it and collect it

what a fiasco
