Product Description

In similarity to the flagship Arcam AVR850, this AVR550 model draws on Arcam's extensive expertise in balancing finely honed technical specs with world class audio performance. As a result the AVR550 is one of their finest and best value AV receivers to date, doubling as an audiophile grade amplifier for two channel music.

Effortless Sound

Offering exquisite sound quality far above competing receivers, these AVRs are audiophile products by any measure. Effortless high resolution surround sound or two channel music is delivered with stunning realism bringing life to everything from intense blockbusters and your favourite concerts.

Dirac Live Technology

Further enhancing the performance of the new AVR550, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live allows you to fine tune the acoustic output of the system to any room situation giving the listener the best possible experience in their own home. Any unwanted bloom or sharpness is reduced automatically for the most natural and airy sound reproduction.

Music Sources

Spotify Connect is enabled to allow streaming plus unlimited radio stations from across the globe. Together with Arcam’s legendary amplifier technology, powered by 7 x 110w, the Arcam AVR550 delivers fantastic music reproduction from all music sources in addition to a cutting edge surround sound cinema performance.

Dolby Atmos

The captivating Dolby Atmos sound places and moves audio anywhere in the room including overhead, bringing fully immersive entertainment to its audience. The full impact is delivered in music, movies, television shows and even video games making the AVR550 the central hub of an ultra high performance home entertainment system.


Both video and audio stages are designed to embrace both current and upcoming technologies. HDMI2.0a with HDCP2.2 4K “Ultra HD” and 3D video capability are built in. An internal tuner provides a fully integrated FM / DAB / DAB+ (in appropriate markets) radio solution.

Worldwide access to radio stations is provided through the network connection, which also interfaces to UPnP audio servers. The USB port supports memory devices. Control is possible via Ethernet, enabling it to be fully integrated with whole house control systems. RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR control are also included.
