    Arcam AVR400 in immaculate condition and perfect working order, very well looked-after in a smoke, pet and child-free environment, kept in a well-ventilated cabinet. In the final months of its warranty (last summer), it went into Arcam for repair via Superfi - a problem with the CD input was fixed, it was fully tested, and fresh capacitors were swapped in, giving the amp a completely new lease of life, so it really is pretty much as good as new. This can be verified with Arcam via the serial number, or I can share the email chain.

    I also have the original box, packaging, mic, remote control, instructions etc.

    Photos to follow, however I thought I’d get the ad up early for all you Xmas shoppers ;)

    It’s a fantastic amp, however the purchase of a new OLED means an upgrade to HDMI 2.0 is required for my 4K / HDR sources, so I've purchased a new receiver.

    Ideally the unit would be inspected / collected from my flat in London Bridge (2 mins from the station with free off-street parking). Alternatively, you are welcome to arrange your preferred courier collection from my home address, as long as it includes insurance for the sale value of the amp.

    Price and currency: £350
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: BT, PayPal or Cash
    Location: London Bridge
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    Hi, not overheating no, but the top of the amp can get quite hot during operation. I guess you might be worried about that if you had kids around, but even then it's not exactly scalding. I believe it's quite typical for A/B amps.

    In any case, I think I'm going to keep it now until the next generation of Arcam receivers are released.

    Mods please close the thread - thanks.

    If you change your mind on selling this do get in touch as could be interested. I just want to play around with my set up slightly. I am assuming it is the same one you bought on forum For Sale - Arcam AVR400. Cheers P
