Press Release – Stop Press
For CES 2005 January 5 2005

SOLO – serious hi-fi with style – from Arcam – $1599.99

Once upon a time, real hi-fi consisted of a stack of boxes.
Now from UK hi-fi specialist Arcam, Solo delivers all of the
performance of audiophile hi-fi separates in one slim, elegant
chassis, and unlike competitors, Solo is powerful enough for
dance parties, yet good enough for serious music listening.

No other ‘lifestyle’ product on the market makes true hi-fi so
accessible, combining high sound quality, with total ease-of use,
extreme flexibility and a real sense of style. In fact Solo will put
many component systems of this price to shame.

– Audiophile grade CD Player
– Stunning radio performance from FM & DAB
(DAB = Digital Audio Broadcasting)
– 50 (real) watts rms per channel amplifier
with heavyweight current delivery and drive
– the world’s finest clock radio
– full clock facilities – wake to CD or Radio
– multi-room facilities built-in
– full zone 2 operation and system integration
– simple intuitive operating system
– large clear dot-matrix display
– elegant system handset

Representing the best of Arcam music technology housed in one sleek,
easy-to-operate system, Solo consists of an audiophile CD player and a
50 watts per channel amplifier combined with a high quality FM tuner and
a DAB digital radio. The result is a product that is much more than the
sum of its parts – a music system that’s a delight to use and will
captivate all who listen.

Solo has been designed and built using audiophile standard components
and design methods. CD playback is exceptional as you might imagine
from a company that has won more awards for sound quality than any
other UK manufacturer. Radio performance is first class from the
built-in FM tuner and DAB digital radio. The amplifier delivers real
power with finesse, loud enough for parties or Beethoven’s 9th,
but pure enough to delight every day of the week.

Connecting music and technology with style,
SOLO will be available from February 2005.

Charlie Brennan, Arcam’s Managing Director commented;
“Over the last 30 years, Arcam has earned a reputation as one
the world’s finest manufacturers of hi-fi. Music has always been the
driving force behind all we do, and we wanted to distil our audiophile
expertise into a product that would widen the reach of what we do as
a specialist manufacturer. We set out to deliver a level of performance
that would meet the exacting standards of our design team in a single
component, making true high fidelity more accessible than ever before.”
