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.
The Arcam Solo Music and Movie systems have redefined what can be achieved with an all-in-one system. Their unique combination of discrete styling, ease of use and stunning sound and picture quality have led to phenomenal success with thousands of delighted owners worldwide.
To complement Solo systems, Arcam is proud to introduce the Muso / Logo speaker system. Designed with Solo systems firmly in mind, the Muso and Logo complement Solo beautifully with discreet looks and stunning performance. Construction uses the very latest techniques including combined aluminium / steel enclosures (Muso) and the very latest driver technology.
Offered in fully flexible combinations, the Muso two-way speaker offers a bass performance far beyond that of a typical "satellite" speaker, meaning it can be used as a simple stereo pair when placed close to a wall. With the addition of the Logo sub woofer, a full range system can be configured for stereo music or movie systems. However, it is in the full 5.1 combination where the Muso / Logo really shines, offering a dynamic performance that would put many a "big box" speaker to shame.

The irDock allows anybody with a hi-fi system, irrespective of the manufacturer, to enjoy iPod music with superlative quality.
As the name implies the new irDock allows full Infra Red remote control of all iPods and iPhone (including the latest generations) as well as allowing video pass through of any movie or TV show stored thanks to the incorporation of an authentication chip from Apple®.
The irDock uses audiophile grade components and design techniques to deliver the best possible sound quality and is built from a high quality cast aluminum enclosure for optimum RF shielding. The irDock comes with a special charging on/off button, which enables you to play the iPod from its internal battery supply. Using this intelligent feature will double the life of the rechargeable iPod battery and brings a modest but useful improvement in sound quality.
The irDock’s low noise power supply comes with three plug attachments and universal voltage capability so you can enjoy your iPod music anywhere in the world.
