With more input flexibility than ever and the same award-winning sound, the Arcam SA10 sets a new class standard.

Winning heritage

Based on the award-winning Arcam A19, the SA10 is one of the best-sounding amplifiers in its class. As you’d expect from Arcam, the sound quality is supremely well balanced with a smooth, refined treble, life-like mid-range and powerful (but not overblown) bass. Suiting a wide range of music, the SA10 gets to the heart of the tune, letting you hear the music exactly as the creator intended.

The first Arcam amp with digital inputs
In a first for Arcam, the SA10 comes with digital inputs. This means that you can connect your TV, CD/DVD/Blu-ray player, games console, streamer or other device via the optical and two coaxial digital inputs. By going direct and using the Arcam’s built-in ESS DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), you get superb clarity and a much more ‘open’ sound with strong dynamics. TV will never have sounded so good!

Dig out your vinyl
If you use a turntable then you’re in for a treat with the Arcam SA10. The dedicated phono input (Moving Magnet) built into the SA10 is a high quality device, designed to get the best from your vinyl. Unlike many integral phono stages that are simply there to make up the spec, the Arcam’s has been carefully developed to provide low noise and high levels of detail within the music. If you don’t plan to use a record deck, simply switch the input to line level and you can use it for another source.

Connect it all
As well as the three digital inputs and phono stage, the SA10 is also equipped with three analogue RCA inputs and a front-mounted 3.5mm AUX input. The socket at the front is perfect for portables or even your smartphone, with the rear inputs ideal for permanent sources such as a CD player and tuner. If you’re a headphones fan, the high quality, built-in headphone amp is punchy enough to get the best out of a wide range of designs.

Control options
As standard, the Arcam SA10 is supplied with a backlit, learning remote control. This makes it easier to use in low light levels and it will control other handy functions – such as your amp’s volume control. If you’d rather operate the amp via your iPhone or iPad, simply connect to your network and download Arcam’s Musiclife app for seamless control. For effortless operation as part of a home automation system, the SA10 also features Net, RS232 and USB (for charging only) interfaces.

Get straight to the heart of the music, whatever the source, with the totally engaging Arcam SA10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and full rounded sound Purchased in lockdown, so no chance to pre listen. Was comparing with the Yamaha AS701 & Marantz PM6006. So essentially a talk through comparison with Kieron @ the Croydon branch over the phone. The amp is to replace a NAD C340, which had recently developed an intermittent fault of distortion through both channels. My current set up is a Marantz CD6004 CD player and Mission Audio Bronze speakers. Primarily playing Classic Rock and Blues from CDs, but due to the confines of the listening room rarely above 3 on the volume dial.The lug holes have suffered enough over the decades! The Arcam is solid and well built with sleek lines and relatively slimline compared to some of the competition, It takes a bit of getting used to the lack of tone controls...in Arcam we trust ! Though to be honest when consulting the controls on my previous amp, I'd only adjusted one and that was just one notch, so don't anticipate a problem here. Perhaps as to be expected, the sound is warm and full and not too bright, with a solid presence bringing a good level of clarity to both driving riff driven rock and acoustic blues musings. It's early days as to how the amp will warm up over time and it is possible that trying to find the holly grail of power, presence punch and clarity is not achievable at this level but at least this amp appears to be a start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm, vibrant sound This amplifier was a replacement for an Arcam Alpha7 bought 22 years ago. I chose to buy another Arcam because I wanted a similar quality of sound and I was immediately impressed with its warmth and also its clarity. The latter is actually even more noticeable when listening to presenters on the radio. Technology has moved on considerably over the years and the SA10 is much heavier and now has a shiny case. However it sits comfortably with the original CD player and tuner, which continue in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound The sound is quite full but setting the bass / treble is so fiddly and not clear in the instructions I can't be bothered

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb !!! upgraded from alpha 5 plus.love Arcam sound (confirmed after Tony at Bournemouth demonstrated several for me). The SA10 delivers so much detail and "proper sound" without being harsh and aggressive like some.Also the remote is fully compatible with my Marantz 6006 cd player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the other amps I tried My classical recordings sound as good as I will have without going to the concert hall. For the price it is the best of those to which I listened.
