The ARCAM A5 is for those intimate listening experiences with your favourite music.

The "A" in ARCAM stands for Amplification - this is their core competance. The A5 is the latest in more than 45 years of amplifier design and manufacture, going back to Arcam's first product in 1976 - the A&R Cambridge A60 amplifier. New components and materials have been painstakingly analysed and reviewed to ensure brilliant sound quality.

So you can play music straight out of the box, the ARCAM A5 includes a Bluetooth solution with Qualcomm AptX Adaptive technology. This provides up to 24-bit HD audio for the best sound quality from your phone or tablet, no matter what you are playing. It can also connect to Bluetooth headphones so your listening experience can continue sensitively after dark.

Hi-res audio is included with high resolution digital audio inputs included.

Like any ARCAM integrated amplifier, they pay particular attention to the built in phono stage to ensure your records sound as lush and engaging as possible.
