    Hi,

    I got to see, but not hear, the new Arcam Solo last night here in Vancouver, Canada. Nice looking piece of equipment.

    Any word on a DVD version?

    - Kirk.

    It's CD, FM tuner, 2x50 Watts, all-in-one system. Kind of like a lite version of the Linn Classik. I've got a product sheet in front of me.

    Even more interesting is a line that says:
    "adjustable speaker bass equalisation for easy placement of ARCAM Solo speakers"

    Yes: When you see it in the flesh it looks rather sweet....John and Charlie kindly let myself and X3ELS have a wee peek while we are at CEDIA in September. It wasn't at the show but was hidden off site at the US Distributors. Looks nothing like any other Arcam product....but it looks cool (at least I thought so)

    Does it have digital sound inputs or preamp outs? Is it a mini system or a full width hifi component?

    First glance, it doesn't strike me as anything special.

    I don't like the rounded bits. When NAD did that it put me right off.

    Considering its target market I won't be looking in on Solo again.

    I'd personally have wanted to see a Diva processor as mentioned many a time on this forum. I know that won't happen though with the way the market is.
