”A well built amp, packed with useful features that delivers amazing sound.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2023 award-winner.

Brilliant all-rounder

The Arcam A15 uses a powerful, 80 watt amplifier to make all types of music sound effortless and intensive. For even greater appeal, the amp has a wide range of analogue, digital and wireless HD connectivity, making it easy to include all your music sources. But that’s not all. Stunning new aesthetics make this amp stand out from the crowd, with a striking design that shines above its rivals.

The power to please
Boasting 60% more power than the A5 model, Arcam’s A15 takes music dynamics to the next level. The increased power makes the A15 more suitable for larger spaces and less efficient speakers. As well as sustaining higher volume levels, the A15 also delivers a deeper, richer sound at all volume levels.

Perfectly balanced sound
Painstakingly developed, the Arcam A15 features a highly optimised Class AB amplifier. With new components and materials, the sound quality is cleaner and more precise, while still retaining the smooth and richly detailed sonic signature that has made Arcam so popular over the past decades. As well as delivering more power than the A5 model, the A15 also produces lower distortion, giving you a more natural and true-to-life sound.

A treat for your turntable
Much more than just a box-ticking exercise, the Arcam A15’s built-in phono stage makes a top quality connection for your turntable. Suited to turntables with MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges, the high spec phono stage draws a deep seam of information from your vinyl, letting you hear subtle details from the music that might previously have been missed.

Stream from your smartphone in Hi-Res audio
For simple yet high quality music streaming, the A15 features Bluetooth with Qualcomm AptX Adaptive technology. When used with a compatible source device, this delivers up to 24-bit Hi-Res music streaming, giving you better than CD-quality, from a wireless connection.

Connect your headphones – Bluetooth or wired
The A15 welcomes all types of headphones, however they connect. Two-way Bluetooth connectivity lets you pair the amp with your Bluetooth headphones, giving you the freedom of movement that only wireless connectivity brings. Alternatively, the A15 also has a facia-mounted headphone socket for any type of wired headphones.

Connect all your digital and analogue sources
Featuring a built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the A15 effortlessly connects with your digital audio sources. Two coaxial and one optical input let you connect your TV, games console and digital music source. Coming from a top quality brand, the ESS DAC maximises your digital music’s full potential and should provide a boost in sound quality over using the analogue inputs. For analogue sources, however, such as an FM tuner, there are also three RCA phono inputs.

Sleek new style
As part of Arcam’s Radia series, the A15 looks slicker than any previous Arcam amp. With just two dials and subtle illumination, the amp strikes the perfect balance in catching the eye without distracting from the sound. The all-aluminium casing includes the volume and input dials, giving a high quality look and feel. A compact remote control is also included.

Boost your listening pleasure, with the versatile Arcam A15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp, everything you expect it to be Excellent sounding amp. So crisp and clear. Really worth the extra cost to go beyond the lower range models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best amp I've had so far. Highly recommended. Replacing a Creek Evolution 50A, and paired with B&W 606 bookshelf speakers. A lovely, simple, easy to use amp. I followed the recommendation in store, and it was perfect. The sound is just what I enjoy. Plus easy to use, nice remote, bluetooth that works, nice energy-save auto-off. Looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back to real Hi-FI! I purchased the Arcam A15 and Kef Q5550's. After a delay in receiving the speakers due in large part to KEF themselves I am absolutely stoked with the equipment. I've been languishing with the convenience but overall lacklustre sound of Sonos for too long and to return to proper hifi set up with these is like night and day. Each and every track is like listening to the music for the first time with tonnes of detail you just can't hear through the Sonos speakers. When I switch on the amp it's like an event rather than just having music on in the background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful Richer Sounds guides to AR15 pleasure Only purchased this amplifier this week but the Arcam AR15 has not disappointed following a thorough review of comparisons with the Richer Sounds representative. Bought in tandem with the Arcam CD player and upgraded connects the difference between my previous separates is notable despite being budget constrained. Both units are aesthetically pleasing and the remote controls are intuitive and simple to use. The Bluetooth facility is an added bonus (a nice to have and not available on one of the alternative amps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound & features Purchased from the Bath store after auditioning a few amps, it came down to a tussle between the Arcam A15 and Roksan Attessa. Chose the Arcam as the amp sounded better with each step in volume, whereas the Rocksan sounded slightly strained as the volume increased, but was very nice at lower levels.
