"A well-made, well-featured and solid-sounding product, the Arcam Solo Music is indeed a complete one-box stereo system." 'What Hi-Fi? 2016'. 5-star review. Tested at £1500.

Power with control from Class-G amp

Drawing on over 40 years experience in amps, Arcam have set a new class standard for sound quality. Using a unique Class-G amplifier gives the Solo Music generous power and incredibly low distortion. This means deep, powerful bass - even larger rooms and with power hungry speakers. At the same time the subtlest detail is not lost on the Solo Music, meaning the sound is just as the producer intended.

High quality Bluetooth streaming
For easy access to your digital music library or favourite music services, such as Spotify and Apple Music, the Arcam Solo Music is equipped with Bluetooth. Simply pair your smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer and enjoy high quality music streaming from the aptX-equipped Bluetooth receiver.

SACD playback
In addition to making a great CD player, the Arcam Solo Music also replays SACDs (Super Audio Compact Discs). These Direct Stream Digital (DSD) discs offer a far higher resolution than ordinary CDs and are similar in resolution to 24-bit music files. The result is a more natural sound, revealing subtle detail and texture in the music.

Stream music via UPnP
The Arcam Solo Music also features a very handy built-in streamer. You can link to your system by wired Ethernet or by built-in Wi-Fi. Compatible with UPnP and CIFS audio streaming standards, the Solo Music is the ideal device for listening to music stored on your NAS drive, laptop, PC or Mac.

Improved MusicLife iOS control app
If you've got an Apple iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad, then you can take full control of streaming music to your Solo Music with the MusicLife control app. Working with the Bluetooth receiver, it lets you stream music directly from your device as well as servers or computers connected via UPnP. The latest version also supports Internet Radio, Podcasts and streaming from TIDAL and Qobuz. Advanced features, such as library searching, sorting, shuffle and repeat playback are also catered for.

DAB tuner radio
For more conventional listening, the Arcam also has a DAB/FM tuner radio built in. With both analogue FM and digital DAB broadcasting covered, you can listen to nearly all the national and local stations available.

All the inputs you could want - including HDMI
Unusually for a stereo system, the Arcam Solo Music comes equipped with an HDMI interface. The four HDMI inputs and output are ideal for linking up streaming devices, such as the Apple TV, with your TV connected for its role as a display. It's also the ideal way of getting superb sound from video sources, without having to buy a full surround sound AV receiver. USB, optical, coaxial digital, RCA phono and AUX 3.5mm inputs are all standard, too.

Genuine hi-fi quality sound from an all-in-one solution, the Arcam Solo Music gives the best of both worlds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant product giving excellent sound from CDs and hi-res downloads from a memory stick and good quality from DAB radio. We bought Solo Music a couple of months ago for our large kitchen as we spend more time there than in our lounge, which has a much more expensive set-up. It is attached to two Kef iQ5 flourstanders - set-up was easy. The sound coming from CDs, whether classical or popular, was excellent for the price andwas even very enjoyable when "on the move" doing various kitchen chores! It was even better when classical music I downloaded onto my computer at HiRes Studio Quality was played via a memory stick. Our area is not suitable for FM radio without an external aerial though DAB, with its limitations, gave acceptable sound & also has many pre-sets for favourite stations. Contrary to what one reviewer said it does have Bluetooth though we have not used it. We cannot find fault in the equipment really - perhaps the base is a little weak but that could be our room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another let down,Solo music I treated myself to new speaker wires (qed xt 40) Two days later I finally worked out how to get the bare wires into the smallest hole I have ever seen on a decent amp. The speaker binding post are small and very close together (all four of them) I took the hollow plastic tube from the centre of the wires (just the end half inch) A pair of pliers to screw the wires tightly together, and finally managed to squeeze it through. Then you have to tighten up the binding post screws.With them being so small and close together, even that isn't as easy as it should be.. As I have already mentioned in a earlier review. The sound is fantastic, stereo seperation all so good. I could have bought spade or banana and saved a bit of bother, but I like bare wire joins (less is best) I still get the impression this is not a AMP. No phono , no tape out, and now small speaker binding post.(which I had not thought about) So I have taken a star away and not recommended..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has an excellent sound for a reasonable price This unit has replaced a 10 year old Arcam hifi and this unit is far better in every way with what it has to provide as well as a good quality sound. It was easy to set up, produces more than enough wattage, and has every facility that I required for a reasonable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the sound I would gladly give this 5 stars, for the sound and musicality.. But the Amp is not a Amp as we know It..?? No phono stage built in.. Only one input (not counting hdmi,s) And worse no record out.. I will have to keep my old Amp.. I knew all this before I bought the Arcam Solo (so can not complain,) and would not complain because the musicality is brilliant.. I can now listen to all my L.Ps and CDs over again as they sound so much better .. Arcam could have had a winner here!! But seem to have added a Solo music to a Solo movie idea.. I play all my own records, so the radio side is a no,no.. BUT AS I SAY, CAN NOT FAULT THE SOUND..
