      Arcam AV40 AV Processor Review - Read More

      "This is a review and detailed measurements of the Arcam AV40 AV Processor. It was purchased by a member as "z-stock" and kindly loaned to me for testing. He said that unit arrived brand new with even the plastics undisturbed." - Amirm

      A top-end processor with a high-end performance? - Read More 

      " When used with the PA720 amplifier, there is a headroom available that allows the processor to work at its very best and the end result is capable of giving far more expensive processors a run for their money. If you can work around the slightly buggy performance issues highlighted above, you will be rewarded with one of the very best performances available from any AV processor for the money.
