ARCAM's entry-level AVR awarded five-stars in What Hifi?
What Hifi? praises ARCAM's prioritisation of sound over features, awarding five stars for it's most affordable AVR.
Some of the review highlights include:
''As both the pulse and brain of a home cinema system, AVRs can often fall foul of trying to do too much, leading to compromises being made where it matters most, in sonic performance. But Arcam is so confident in the sound of the AVR5 that it has removed features that it feels don’t have mass appeal in order to bring a hi-fi sensibility to its most affordable home cinema amp.''
''With its sparkling clarity and agility, the AVR5 makes for an engaging listen across a range of content.''
