Using technology developed from the acclaimed AVR600 receiver and AV888
processor the AVR400 has been developed as a more affordable way to
access Arcamís legendary sound quality. It is designed to be the perfect
home cinema receiver for a wide range of enthusiastic customers and
custom designed home theatres.
The AVR400 has a rich feature list including compatibility with all the
latest audio decoding formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.
In addition it offers wide compatibility with music files stored on USB
or network audio devices. The included DAB/FM/AM tuner allows access to
a host of terrestrial radio stations while its in-built Internet radio
receiver extends this reach to thousands of web based radio stations
from around the world.
Unlike most AV amps the AVR400 has a huge toroidal transformer that
gives it enough current to tame even the most difficult of speaker
loads. The amplifier has a lively sound that means it can hold on to
complicated rhythms with real verve and attack.
The AVR400ís video performance is exemplary regardless of source.
Full upscaling and cross conversion is carried out by a high performance
Torino video processor that supports all resolutions up to and
including 1080p/60 plus support for 24fps and 3DTV pass-through. The
resulting picture quality is outstanding offering breath-taking clarity
and supremely realistic colour rendition.
To support the latest source and display technologies the AVR400
includes HDMI v1.4a including ARC (Audio Return Channel) and CEC
(Consumer Electronic Control). This makes the AVR400 a perfect match for
the latest video displays having on-board digital TV or Internet TV
While the AVR400 is a perfect choice for a home cinema in the living
room, it also offers a host of features making it ideal for bespoke home
theatre rooms. RS232, IR and 12V control interfaces allow the unit to
be integrated simply and reliably into even complex installations. Its
extremely low 0.5W standby power even means a very low environmental
impact while retaining the convenience of remote switch on.
If you're serious about high definition sound then you owe yourself a
listen. The AVR400 is designed to set a new benchmark for its price
category and beyond. It can achieve startling results from high
resolution, uncompressed music and yet still delight with normal Dolby
