A decade ago, Solo redefined the style and performance of compact Hi-Fi & Music systems, bringing Arcam’s legendary sound quality into 'non Hi-Fi' homes.

  • Audiophile “Complete Stereo System in a Box”
  • CD & SACD support
  • Bluetooth with aptX™ streaming technology
  • High-end audio circuitry and components
  • Breathtaking Class G amplification
  • Multi-function learning backlit remote
  • 4 HDMI inputs

The new Solo music delivers music at a quality level previously only possible from large separate components.

Featuring a SACD/CD drive and 160W of amplification in a stylish, low-resonance enclosure, the Solo music provides high-quality room-filling sound. Four HDMI™(1.4b), coax, optical, phono and 3.5mm line inputs allow for flexible system building without being over complex. Audio can also be streamed to the movie via Bluetooth and also UPnP network either wired or wirelessly. Finally an FM/DAB/DAB+ tuner is available. Audiophile design ensures that absolutely no sonic detail is lost. The music is supplied with a multi-page learning backlit remote control.

As well as being a CD/SACD - playing, network streaming source in itself, and having a DAB/DAB+/FM tuner and Bluetooth on board, the Solo has digital and analogue connections, including four HDMI inputs and single optical, coaxial, USB, phono and 3.5mm inputs. It also has DLNA functionality, and plays 24-bit/192kHz music from anywhere on your local network.

The Solo Music shares many components with Arcam's home cinema and hi-fi separates, including 160w of class G amplification - as found at the high end of Arcam's FMJ Integrated amp range. Like many Arcam products, the Solo Music offers an instantly likeable sound: powerful,punchy and smooth, with must haves like clarity, balance and detail. No part of the frequency range tips the tonal scales off kilter, and the Arcam has the space and recision to articulate even the most complicated of tracks.

Hook it up to your  TV and it does all of this with your movies too, putting weight and expression behind well-recorded dialogue. Hi-res music steps this up a notch, delivering a richer bass response and more dynamic subelty, but its character is the same across all of its inputs.

The multi-talented Arcam Solo Music sets a high benchmark for a system of its type at this price. A well-made and solid sounding product, this is a complete one-box stereo system.
