The “A” in ARCAM represents our expertise in amplification. The A5, our latest product, continues our 45-year legacy in amplifier design, dating back to the A&R Cambridge A60 in 1976. We’ve thoroughly examined and upgraded components and materials to deliver exceptional sound quality.
Arcam A5 – Class AB Amplifier
Quality + Connectivity = Accessible Hi-Fi
The ARCAM A5 is for those intimate listening experiences with your favourite music.
The “A” in ARCAM stands for Amplifi cation – this is our core competance. The A5 is the latest in more than 45 years of amplifi er design and manufacture, going back to our fi rst product in 1976 – the A&R Cambridge A60 amplifi er. New components and materials have been painstakingly analysed and reviewed to ensure brilliant sound quality.
So you can play music straight out of the box, the ARCAM A5 includes a Bluetooth solution with Qualcomm AptX Adaptive technology. This provides up to 24-bit HD audio for the best
sound quality from your phone or tablet, no matter what you are playing. It can also connect to Bluetooth headphones so your listening experience can continue sensitively after dark.
Hi-res audio is included with high resolution digital audio inputs included.
Like any good ARCAM integrated amplifi er, we pay particular attention to the built in phono stage to ensure your records sound as lush and engaging as possible.
