Arcam solo music is a stunning fusion of Arcam’s award-winning technology with clean, contemporary good looks allowing you to enjoy Arcam’s renowned sound quality in one sleek, easy-to-use music system.
Power and Finesse
Launched to worldwide acclaim, Arcam’s Solo Music system has brought high-fidelity separates performance to a new audience of style-conscious music lovers. Flexible enough to use with other entertainment devices, Solo’s integrated technology ensures exceptional performance delivered with power and finesse.
Over the last 30 years, Arcam has earned a reputation as one of the world’s finest manufacturers of hi-fi components. Music has always been the driving force behind all we do, and we wanted to distil our audiophile expertise into a product that would widen the reach of what we do as a specialist manufacturer. We set out to deliver a level of performance that would meet the exacting standards of our design team in a single component, making true high fidelity more accessible than ever before.
Arcam solo represents the best of Arcam music technology housed in one sleek, easy-to-operate system. SOLO consists of an audiophile CD player and a 50 watts per channel amplifier combined with a DAB digital radio and a high quality FM tuner. The result is a product that is much more than the sum of its parts - a music system that’s a delight to use and will captivate all who listen.
Solo has been assembled using audiophile standard components and design methods. CD playback is exceptional as you might imagine from a company that has won more awards than any other UK manufacturer. Radio performance is first class from the built-in DAB digital radio and FM tuner.
The amplifier delivers real power with finesse, loud enough for parties or Beethoven's 9th symphony, but pure enough to delight every day of the week.
'A solid-sounding just-add-speakers system that can stand at the heart of both your hi-fi and home cinema set-up' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2016)
'...The Solo Music is how we imagine a modern-day VCR would look, largely in part to its chunky casework and retro styling. But that’s no criticism; it’s handsome and looks classy, which is as much down to the sleek finish as is it is flushed playback buttons on the fascia and wheel volume dial up top.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2016)
'Like many Arcam products before it, the Solo Music delivers an instantly likeable sound that you can settle in to for the evening: powerful, punchy and smooth, with sonic must-haves like clarity, balance and detail also in check... the Arcam has the space and precision to communicate the tempestuous production, splitting even the most saturated instrumental parts into distinct layers.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2016)
'In 2005, we described the original Solo Music as ‘something of a benchmark system at this price level’, so it’s quite remarkable that the same is pretty much true of the latest version. A well-made, well-featured and solid-sounding product, the Arcam Solo Music is indeed a complete one-box stereo system.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2016)
