Add To Cart

This is the best sounding AV Receiver on the market today. In all of our years of listening to various receivers and separates we have never felt that receivers compare to separate systems…until now. The power, refinement, imaging and dynamics of the Arcam AVR 850 go way beyond anything we have ever heard from a single box receiver. If music is just as important as theater you can’t go wrong with this one. Arcam puts the dollars into the sound, it maybe missing some of the bells and whistles, but it lacks nothing in terms of audio performance. Feel free to call with questions. 651-217-2083
