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.”
