    Boring query I know but how tall are these units? Arcam quote 80 or 85mm for the 79 and 90 for the 88/89.

    Can someone with one measure it as I need to know if it will fit on my rack!!!

    Cheers
    Rob

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention Rob.

    I have checked this out and there is some inconsistency here in our literature - I will look further into this. For the record the typical height is about 82 mm for the main body of these DiVA series units (DVDs, CDs, tuners, smaller integrated amplifiers etc) and 83.5 mm including the front panel. We generally quote 85 mm to allow some safety margin when measuring up for shelves etc.

    If it looks to be a tight fit then you could always shave down the rubber feet a mm or two -:)

    Sincerely,

    John Dawson (Arcam)

    AFIAK the DV79 replaces the DV88+. You might want to consider the 88 if you can get one at a good discount, tho, and don't need all the features of the 79.

    I've just bought a 79 and am very pleased with it so far. I got a black one to suit my hi-fi gear; shame it isn't a bit smaller- it looks quite large compared with the Linn stuff.
