Arcam's Solo music and movie systems have redefined the accepted limitations of all-in-one HiFi systems, delivering audiophile music performance that has wowed customers and reviewers the world over. The Solo family provides the right answer for customers who crave high quality reproduction but reject the traditional “pile of boxes” high performance HiFi system. Arcam has kept the audiophile promise we have made for thirty years but can now deliver delightfully engaging sound from a single stylish and easy to use unit.

Building on the original Solo music system but in a smaller form factor, the Solo mini provides premium performance in a discrete and stylish unit. An ideal partner with the Muso speakers, the Solo Mini system features a CD player, radio tuner (FM/DAB or FM/AM) and iPod interface using the rDock or rLead. In addition a front panel USB input allows USB memory devices to be played (MP3 and WMA files supported).

Using sophisticated circuitry taken from higher priced Arcam components, the sound quality available from the Solo mini system is without equal at the price. A Torroid based power supply ensures even demanding bass lines are delivered without compromise to other instruments or voices. Using the DACs and high precision clock from the company’s award winning CD73, digital sources are processed with extremely high precision allowing fine detail to be reproduced with breathtaking clarity. The Solo mini uses the same high current power amplifiers as the full size Solo music system ensuring a truly dynamic experience even at louder volume levels.

Offering full Infra Red and RS232 control he Solo mini is equally at home in stand alone systems or full custom installations.
