Good Things Come In Threes The Arcam HDA series just released the FW 1.28 which has been a joy to use compared to the previous FW especially 1.24, but it's not there yet but seems to be heading in the right direction. The other big change is evidenced by three huge antennae at the rear: the HDA lineup sports built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, with support for Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2. I was waiting for the review on the Arcam AV40 for so long. The 16-channel Arcam AVR20 uses Class A/B amplification and is rated at 90W per channel, while the flagship AVR30 uses Class G amplification to deliver 100W per channel. Arcam AVR30.
You can customise the target correction filters, group speakers together to create system-wide crossovers, and create up to three profiles for different content or room conditions. Multichannel input: No The AV40, meanwhile, is a 16-channel processor (£3,800) that swaps the AVR30's onboard power for balanced XLR outputs. With the 'drum dance' sequence, the AVR30's soundstage felt incredibly tight, with exquisite timing. I kept my Marantz AV8805 for three weeks after buying the Arcam AV40 so that I could “back out” if I wasn’t happy with the AV40. The receiver is supplied with a calibrated microphone and supports the latest version of Dirac Live, allowing you to measure the speakers in your system and correct for your room's acoustic aberrations. For those wanting extra channels, the company sells its PA410 power amp with four channels of Class AB, or the PA720 with seven channels of Class G welly. The AV40, meanwhile, is a 16-channel processor (£3,800) that swaps the AVR30's onboard power for balanced XLR outputs. Add the extra amps necessary to run a full 16-channel layout, and use Dirac to lock everything into place, and the results are simply spellbinding. HUGE Thank you to Steve.
While the receivers are limited to seven channels of built-in amplification, the processing can handle up to 16, which means Atmos at 15.1 and Auro-3D at 13.1, although Arcam's implementation of DTS:X is still limited to 11.1 channels.
This was my first opportunity to run a 9.2.6 setup in my theatre, and I was keen to discover if those extra speakers would actually make a noticeable difference. The Caterpillar videogame fight scene makes frequent use of Auro-3D's top layer, and sounds often emanated from above, swirling around the room as alien attackers were blasted out of the sky. HDA, for those who keep an eye on acronyms, replaces the outgoing, and cooler named, Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) series, bringing with it a number of changes – some more apparent than others. Bad Boys for Life (UHD BD) has an IMAX Enhanced DTS:X soundtrack, and the AVR30 detected the correct audio format and got on with wowing me with yet another all-encompassing sonic experience. Pushing The Envelope The Arcam AV receiver range captured the imagination of a whole new generation of movie and music enthusiasts. Joined May 2, 2020 Messages 3 Likes 5. Dolby Atmos: Yes On the plus side, a full-colour LCD screen replaces the previous green dot-matrix display, and only die-hard retro freaks will lament its passing. The AVR30 reviewed here is the flagship HDA receiver (£5,000). I'll do Dirac tomorrow morning with a UMIK-1 mic I also received today.
An Arcam AVR850 previously graced my reference system, so I'm familiar with the AVR30's immediate predecessor and, cosmetics and processing aside, the two aren't wildly different.
It's almost 15 years old, and still my main stereo pre paired with 250 Watt mono blocks making great music every time. Dimensions: 433(w) x 171(h) 425(d)mm You could try Emotiva 30 day free trial and see how it works for you, I think both units are going through critical Firmware updates. Hello I need some help deciding what to go with. I am considering the AVR30 but cautious given the number of bugs/issues. Kinda future proof. We say: Seven channels of Class G amplification combined with 16 channels of processing results in a superior AVR; add eight more channels and you've got an insanely immersive system.

As soon as I selected the Amaze trailer on Dolby's Atmos demo disc I had my answer, and it was a resounding yes. You might wonder why the AVR30 only has seven powered channels but can decode up to 16. Since light travels faster than sound, people usually appear bright...until you hear them speak.
May 3, 2020 #1. IMAX ENHANCED: Yes Multichannel output (claimed): 7 x 100W (into 8 ohms) The Japanese Zero attack was a maelstrom of front-to-back and side-to-side effects steering. Updated software for the AV950/AVR750/AVR450 (Rest of World - 3.52 & US/Canada - 3.52) & AVR380 (Rest of World - 3.52 & US/Canada - 3.52)The fixes and improvements are detailed in the release notes contained within the download package. I've watched the opening bombing run on numerous systems, and it was spot on here; an exercise in skill and precision from the sound of the propellor engines moving overhead, to the wind whistling around the crews in their rickety bombers.
There was an equally rewarding sub-sonic rumble as the bombs hit their target. The Arcam avr 300 is much outdated, as for home theatre duties, but one hell of a preamp for stereo music listening. The soundstage is big and bold, the music suitably funky and the object-based mix is an amped-up paean to ballistic destruction. To be honest, the two-tone styling of the silver buttons and volume dial looks a bit odd on a high-cost receiver, so the redesign might not be a complete success. Good evening all, I'm late to the party and received my 40 today from Steve at Sound Video. It was totally immersive and undeniably exciting. These can be assigned for front width, extra height or additional subwoofer channels. Want to see your home cinema system featured in the pages of HCC?

What does the XMC 2 have over the other two? You also still can't reassign the internal amplification, although you do have greater flexibility with the outputs for channels 13 to 16.
For full immersion I used a 9.2.6 system based around M&K Sound speakers and subs, with an Emotiva XPA-11 power amp to drive the additional eight channels.
When it finally came out for review SPARE CHNAGE bad mouth the wires off that unit.
We are turning on a new house in two weeks so I need to make a purchase. It called to mind the performance of Lyngdorf's MP-60 processor [see HCC #311], and that costs three times as much. I've never used the stock mic, mainly because it does not come with it's own calibration file, while each UMIK-1 does...although those also don't mean it is perfect (some have had theirs calibrated by actual calibration specialists and differences are quite stunning sometimes).
