“Arcam’s performance has always been stable and adequate. The AV40 produced an accurate and stunning performance ranging from electronic, classical orchestral music to classical pop and rock music. ”

“Movies and TV shows also sounded great, the surround sound, dynamics and detail were also excellent. The AV40 is able to create a large and extensive sound field that fills the room. No distortion was observed We heard a powerful, extensive mid-range and intense depths. As a two-channel and multi-channel device, it provided an impressive, precise, sharp, detailed and nuanced product without experiencing distortion.” –

“… never once did I feel the AV40 wasn’t capable of producing an accurate and compelling performance

… amazed at the musicality of the processor which punches well above its weight and gives the recently reviewed Lyngdorf MP40 a real run for its money. ”

“This time, the cohesion of the full system across all the speakers produced three-dimensional soundscapes that were totally believable, no matter the content type or location. This was helped by using the PA720 seven-channel amp with Class G amplification, which provided the same power to each channel.”

“As a two-channel and multichannel performer, the Arcam AV40 is a stunning device that offers up a superb performance with everything I threw at it”

“you will be rewarded with one of the very best performances available from any AV processor for the money. ”
