Product Description

Arcam AV860 AV processor is designed to deliver hi-fi sound quality with music as capably as it does an incredible audio experience from movie soundtracks. This is an AV processor or "AV pre amplifier" so is designed to be used with partnering power amps - we recommend using it in conjunction with the Arcam P49 and P349 power amps.

World Class Audio

As one of the very few audio specialists in the world to design purist stereo hi-fi equipment as well as AV receivers, Arcam has developed a reputation for balancing a finely honed technical specification with world-class audio performance. AV860 delivers the latest in sound modes with a stunning realism with everything from heavyweight blockbusters to your favourite concert video.

Dirac Live

Further enhancing the performance of the new AV860, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live gives the ability to tune the acoustic performance of the system to any room situation for best possible experience in your own home.


Together with Arcam’s legendary amplifier technology, Dolby Atmos & DTS:X deliver captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. Whether you are listening to music, movies, television shows or playing your favourite video games, Dolby Atmos & DTS:X deliver the full impact of the entertainment experience.
