Arcam AVR20 (Black)
With multi-channel power up from 60 watts per channel (AVR10) to a mighty 90 watts, the AVR20 delivers smooth, effortless power. The 50% increase in power not only improves music and soundtrack dynamics but also fills larger rooms more easily. That extra drive comes in handy for less efficient speakers, too.
Processing for up to 16 channels
Another big upgrade with this AVR is the addition of processing for up to 16 channels. Add additional power amps and you’ll be able to decode Dolby Atmos and DTS:X signals, right up to 9.1.6 – enough for the largest home cinemas. For best results, pair with the Arcam PA410, PA240 or PA720 power amps.
Unique Dirac Live, for the very best sound in your room
For the very best sound in your room, Arcam includes powerful room correcting technology from Dirac Research. This uses a microphone and dedicated software to take multiple readings around your room and feed the information back to the amplifier for a completely bespoke response (professional set-up recommended).
Enjoy fully-immersive sound, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Bringing the cinema home, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoders provide truly immersive sound through ceiling or up-firing speakers. The Arcam AVR20 offers both systems, giving a 5.2.2 system with twin ceiling or up-firing speakers.
Certified for IMAX Enhanced
IMAX Enhanced brings home the sound and picture immersion you experience from IMAX cinemas. Available on selected Blu-ray discs and now on streaming platforms, such as Disney+, IMAX Enhanced is a guarantee of extended picture and sound. When used with a compatible TV, you see an expanded aspect ratio, delivering up to 26% more picture with selected scenes. In the case of this AVR, IMAX Enhanced works with partner DTS to reproduce IMAX’s signature sound. Expect a deeper bass and more dynamic sound for edge-of-seat sonic thrills.
The Arcam sound difference
Using audiophile-grade components, the AVR20 delivers quality to match the power. At the heart of this Arcam AVR is a toroidal power supply. Unusual for an AV receiver, this type of power supply is more usually only found in high-end stereo amps. It helps the AVR deliver smooth, dynamic sound that works equally as well with music as movies.
Featuring wi-fi, as well an Ethernet option, the Arcam AVR20 is easy to connect to your network. Once connected, you can take advantage of a whole host of streaming options, including Google Cast, Apple AirPlay 2 and UPnP (Universal Plug ‘n Play). Link to your control app of choice and enjoy streaming music services, Internet Radio, Podcasts and even your stored music collection via UPnP.
MusicLife control app
Take full control of streaming music to your Arcam device with the MusicLife control app (now available for Android and Apple iOS devices). Working with the wireless system, it lets you stream music directly from your device as well as servers or computers connected via UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play). The latest version brings Internet Radio, Podcasts plus streaming from TIDAL and Qobuz. Advanced features, such as library searching, sorting, shuffle and repeat playback are also catered for.
Bluetooth for quick and easy connectivity
Perfect for parties and when friends are over, Bluetooth provides quick and easy, wireless connectivity for your guests’ smartphone. Simply pair the device and stream any audio from the smartphone or tablet. Bluetooth is also handy for areas of your home with patchy wi-fi or for periods of time when the Internet connection might be down.
Internet, DAB and FM – all the radio you need
Internet radio opens up access to a choice of hundreds of radio stations from around the world. Backing this up, the built-in DAB and FM tuners give wide-ranging access to all your favourite stations, including popular digital only stations, such as BBC 6 Music and 4 Extra.
Featuring seven HDMI inputs and three outputs, the AVR20 handles the most complex AV systems. The HDMI2.0b sockets are compatible with HDCP2.2 and eARC, making it suitable for use with the latest TVs and 4K UHD sources. Six digital and six analogue inputs are ample for a wide range of audio components – such as CD, streamer and pre-amp equipped turntable. There are also optical digital and analogue outputs – ideal for recording or looping sound through the Arcam.
HDMI Zone 2 output
Triple HDMI outputs make the AVR20 even more versatile. Use two of the outputs within the same room for connecting a TV and projector simultaneously. The third HDMI is independent, making it ideal for sound and vision in a second room (HDMI2.0b/HDCP2.2 compatible).
Treat your movies to a home cinema masterclass, with the Arcam AVR20.
