    I have two Arcam A/V receivers. One for my home A/V system and one for the cabin. For an A/V receiver, Arcam's are very musical. They are a little light on features & ergonomics; but, they sound good(Even to a dedicated tube guy) At the cabin, I paired a AVR 450 with some vintage Spendor SP1's. With Shunyata cables(power, IC's & speaker cables), it works very well in the north woods. I hope Harman International doesn't mess up a good thing.

      My first more audiophile CDP was an Arcam Alpha One. Paid a grand for it in 1994-5.

        The Best thing about this is that Kef now can stop having to do Tradeshows with Arcam electronics. Arcam make awesome receivers. but for two channel they never got the best out of KEF. Granted thats not a easy thing to do, as they change character like the day changes to night.
