Arcam FMJ AVR600 review

 

Arcam's first ever HD audio AVR has arrived. Was the wait worthwhile?

Sophisticated, flexible and polished ; Gorgeous design

The GUI can be terse at times ; Not a powerhouse

Arcam have outdone themselves in many ways, and this is one bit of kit you shouldn't overlook

Arcam AVR600 review

 

It's a flagship multichannel receiver from Arcam, and we think the AVR600 has much to commend it, despite some reliability issues

Comprehensive specification ; decodes all HD codecs ; superb with music ; punchy, detailed, dynamic movie sound

Usability issues can be frustrating

The AVR600 is a consummate performer, but some reliability issues lose it a star

The AVR600 has two user-adjustable Dolby Volume parameters. The default Leveling setting is 9 on a scale of 0 to 10-in other words, they want you to readily hear the effect at first, but they give you a lot of range to turn it down as needed. It also...
