With its powerful amplifier, separate iPod dock and FM/AM radio; it's amazing just how much the Cambridge Audio AR30 manages to cram into such a small case!

POWERFUL, HIGH QUALITY AMPLIFIER

At the heart of the AR30 hi-fi receiver is an audiophile quality amp with a powerful 2 x 40 watts output. This is around twice what most mini hi-fi systems output and enough for deep, sustained bass in most rooms. Yet the AR30 goes further than just offering a powerful sound; it is refined, too. Discrete circuitry and quality components give the AR30 a life-like sound with the sort of imaging and depth of sound that you usually only get on quality separates. Should you decide to use small speakers, then the dedicated subwoofer output ensures that this 2.1 receiver is ideal for splitting sound between sub and satellite speakers.

COMES COMPLETE WITH IPOD DOCK

When it comes to connections, the AR30 is every bit the equal of many full-size alternatives. First off is the standard iPod dock. Designed for iPod and iPhones, the dock charges and plays back your iPod or iPhone with the minimum of fuss. Better still, the DD30 dock is designed to enhance the sound quality through differential noise cancelling technology. It will also allow full remote control of most iPods via the system remote control. If you don't have an iPod or iPhone then you can take advantage of the front-mounted mini-jack for an MP3 player. Added to this there are a further three inputs at the rear plus a recording output.

FM/AM TUNER

As you'd expect from the makers of high quality separate tuners, the AR30 features a particularly fine quality radio - especially the FM section. Spacious, open and detailed sounding, listening to FM is a treat with the AR30. With 20 presets there's ample storage for all your favourite stations.

Small in stature but big on sound and features, the Sonata AR30 lets you have it all!

If this is your first order with us, please ensure that the only address you enter is the credit card billing address, as this is the only address to which we can deliver. If you have previously placed an order on our website, you will be offered an alternative delivery address if your order value is
less than £500. Also, ensure you only click the submit order button once, as it will take a minute or so to process.

If after this time you have still to take receipt of your order email webaftersales@richersounds.com providing your order number, name, address, and brief details of what you ordered. We strive to answer all queries within a working day, although at busy times we do ask that you bear with us.
