ARCAM SA30 G CLASS INTEGRATED AMP LAUNCHED AT HIGH END MUNICH

Arcam today announced the SA30, the new flagship integrated amplifier from its HDA product range.

Designed around G Class amplification, the new Arcam component sports its maker’s latest casework and fascia design, housing an extensive features list. The SA30 boasts both wireless and custom install-friendly technologies including such modern must-haves as Dirac Live room correction technology

Arcam SA30.

Essentially a hybrid amplifier, the SA30 utilises Class A amplification but then switches it up with an additional power supply to drive those larger sections of the waveform.

The result is an intoxicating blend of sonic power and low-level detail that pushes out 120W of power per channel 8 ohms and 220W into 4 ohms.

Connectivity comes by way of five analogue inputs including a switchable MM/MC phono input, and four digital inputs. Wireless support enables seamless operation with AirPlay 2, UPnP streamer set-ups and Chromecast while the HDMI ARC (audio return channel)  means the SA30 is also perfect for boosting your telly’s output.

Devotees of the latest hi-resolution digital audio systems will welcome the SA30’s support for MQA (Master Quality Authenticated), as offered by the likes of TIDAL Masters, and its Roon Endpoint status means that it is all set to receive audio from Roon’s digital music player and library system.

Equipped with ESS Technology’s 32-bit supporting high-end ESS Sabre ESS9038 DAC, all digital music is meticulously prepared for life in the analogue world.

Scott Campbell, Director of Sales and Marketing at ARCAM, told StereoNET:

The SA30 represents the new pinnacle for stereo amplification from ARCAM. Our hugely talented design team has left nothing on the pitch here. This is Class G technology expertly implemented and teamed with the latest cutting-edge features, including room correction technology, hi-resolution audio support, and custom install provision. I applaud their skills.

The ARCAM SA30 is currently on show at High End Munich and will go on sale in the UK during autumn 2019 with pricing to be advised before its retail launch.
