Bringing music and movies to life

SR250

The SR250 redefines the stereo integrated amplifier for the 21st century. It offers the connectivity of a fully-featured AVR with the simplicity of a traditional stereo amplifier.

As one of the very few audio specialists in the world to design AV receivers, Arcam has developed a reputation for balancing a finely honed technical specification with world class audio performance. The SR250, quite simply, one of the highest performing AV receivers Arcam has ever made.

There are many music lovers who want an amplifier that sounds as good as the best separates in stereo but also want all the connectivity and flexibility that a networked modern AVR delivers. We are proud to announce the SR250 our first 2 channel high performance AVR.

Offering a level of sound quality  that is far above competing receivers, this AVR is an audiophile product by any measure. The SR250 delivers stunning realism with everything from heavy-weight blockbusters to your favourite concert video.

Further enhancing the performance of the new SR250, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live® for Arcam gives the dealer the ability to tune the acoustic performance of the system to any room situation giving the listener the best possible experience in their own home.

Both video and audio stages are designed to embrace both current and upcoming technologies. HDMI2.0a with HDCP2.2 4K “Ultra HD” and 3D video capability are built in.

An internal tuner provides a fully integrated FM / DAB / DAB+ (in appropriate markets) radio solution.   Worldwide access to internet radio stations is provided through the network connection, which also interfaces to UPnP audio servers.  The USB port supports memory devices.

Control is possible via Ethernet, enabling it to be fully integrated with whole house control systems, or via the iOS MusicLife UPnP/control app. RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR control are also included.

The SR250 is designed in the UK.
