    Why are you selling Alan?
    Also, what is the height of the unit minus it's feet?

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    Hello Mike
    I purchased a full Lyngdorf 2.2 system which is considerably more expensive than the Arcam, so I no longer have a need for it.

    I would honestly say that the Arcam after they sorted out the Dirac/BM issue was best sounding amp I have had. It integrated the two SVS SB-2000 Subs and PMC TB2i’s I used with it seamlessly. I would have kept it if it wasn’t for the opportunity to purchase the full Lyngdorf system.

    The Arcam has been boxed up since first putting it up for sale on here, so will have to get back to you regarding height minus feet.

    Regards
    Alan

    Hi Alan.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Makes sense really if you got the Lyndgorf! :smashin:

    I tried a TDAI 2170 but couldn't get it to play nice. :(

    Anyway, get back to me with the height whenever you're ready. It will likely be too tall for my space but theres no harm in asking.:thumbsup:

    Mike.

    Morning Alan.

    Thankyou for taking the time to measure it for me.
    Apologies if it was a pain in the ****.

    It may still be too tall. :(

    As I said, I'm tight for space but I will have a look at the blower to see if I can do anything about the feet as they are fixed.

    I'll get back to you if I get a positive result.

    Thanks again Alan.

    Enjoy your weekend. :smashin:

    Mike.

    Hi Alan.

    I'm interested in the Arcam but I have never heard one and am very wary of buying blind.
    I am only, obviously, 2 channel plus sub and would use it for 70% movies/tv 30% music.
    My speakers are Dali Opticon 6 and an SVS SB2000 sub.

    I already have a minidsp UMIK1 so have no need for the mic.
    Who is the warranty with and is there any movement on the price?

    I'm not sold on it just yet......

    Hello Mike
    I would be prepared to reduce the price by £50 without the minidsp UMIK1, but no less. This is a saving of £1000 on new price, the warranty is with Arcam.
    It's shame you’re not nearer to me, I am more than happy to demo it without any obligations to any active members.
    Regards
    Alan

    Hi mate.

    I wouldn't even try to knock your price down......forget I asked about the mic.
    I appreciate the money you have spent so wouldn't insult you like that.

    I know, it's a big shame I'm not near you but that's always the way! :thumbsdow

    I've demo'd Marantz, Anthem, Rotel and Yamaha but none of them have given me that "feeling" you get when you just know you've landed on the right one....

    I'm definitely interested Alan but need to do a bit deeper research before I commit.
    I hope you don't see this as me wasting your time but I've spent a LOT of money on failed projects recently and don't want to make the same mistake.....:eek:

    Mike.

    Hi Alan.

    I have attempted contact with Arcam support but their email address on their website is to an undeliverable address so I cannot confirm their policy of warranty transfer.
    Their website seems to suggest their items come with 2 year warranties as opposed to 4 years.

    Do you have both proof of purchase and of warranty in writing.
    Do you also have proof that the warranty is transferable?

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    Hi Mike
    The warranty is for 5 years, starting from 22 Feb 2017.

    I do have the invoice for proof of purchase.

    I have spoken to the dealer who I purchased it from and they have told me that they will honour the 5-year warranty to who I sell it onto. I just need to sign the invoice stating who I sold it to and email them with the info.

    Kind Regards
    Alan
