”With its sparkling clarity and agility, the AVR5 makes for an engaging listen across a range of content.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Versatile AV amp that puts sound first

Arcam have a long heritage in premium audio and, with the AVR5, it’s clear to hear. The Class A/B amplifier sounds every bit as good with music as it does with thumping soundtracks, making this a truly all-round entertainer. With a true 60 watts per (7) channels, the AVR5 is suitable for all but the largest rooms.

Enjoy 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 AVR5 offers both systems, giving a 5.2.2 system with twin ceiling or up-firing speakers.

Be even more immersed
With processing for 7.2.4 channels, you can add a 4-channel power amp (or two stereo power amps) and not only double the ceiling speaker count but also add additional effect speakers – giving total sound immersion. For the best results, match with the Arcam PA410 power amp.

Stream your way
Connect the AVR5 to your network via wi-fi or Ethernet and tap into a wide range of streaming options. These include 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.

High quality Bluetooth aptX HD 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. When used with a compatible source, Bluetooth aptX HD delivers premium sound quality that’s the best yet from Bluetooth technology.

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.

Wide selection of connections
With seven HDMI inputs and twin outputs, the AVR5 handles the most complex AV systems. The HDMI2.0b sockets are compatible with HDCP2.2 and eARC. 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.

Ready for Dirac Live*
For the very best sound in your room, the AVR5 is ready for Dirac Live room correction. Simply go to the Dirac website and purchase a license to activate this powerful software. Dirac uses a microphone* and dedicated software to take multiple readings around your room and feed the information back to the receiver for a completely bespoke response (professional set-up recommended).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful thing but am I qualified to judge it? I'm definitely very pleased with my new AVR5 but I don't have experience of other similar products so can't say if it's better or good value. As with all Arcam products, the sound quality is great and I like features such being able to play music from my iPhone direct to the amplifier using AirPlay. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, completing the set-up process to get the very best takes a lot of time - I'm not sure if I'm there yet (my configuration is complicated) but it already sounds good to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcam AVR5 I have had Arcam kit in the past along with Audiolab and many more mainstream manufacturers. The Arcam kit has always sounded the best (in my interpretation) and the AVR 5 is no exception. Its like having a dedicated Arcam stereo amplifier in the guise of an AV receiver. The detail picked out is fantastic. There are a few buts though :-( Not many bells and whistles. Setup needs to be done using a laptop and entering the IP address of the AVR 5. e.g. enter 192.168.0.57 in file explorer You can then enter the speaker sizes, distances etc all manually. There is no auto setup. The web client for playing music from a tablet is quite good and quality of sound is 2nd to none. Playing/streaming films from your network via apps on your smart telly take a bit of sorting out because the ARC option is not enabled as default!!! After a few days of being a technical geek I am very happy with it. You do need to be prepared to be very manual and technical but the results are worth it.
