Arcam AVR600 AV receiver to hit Australia in mid-December

Arcam has announced a new AV receiver, that will be available in Australia in mid-December 2008.

The Arcam AVR600 will feature a completely new design both inside and out. It is part of the FMJ series from Arcam and features the familiar FMJ design cues.

Internally it has all the latest technologies including High Definition Surround Sound formats from DTS and Dolby Laboratories.
5 HDMI inputs and 2 HDMI outputs along with Component and S-video inputs mean the AVR600 can be the entertainment hub for complex and simple home theatre set ups.

With 120 watts x 7 channels there is plenty of power on tap to perform at high levels for music and movies. But it’s the quality of sound that separates the Arcam AVR600 from the competition. The AVR600 is designed with the music lover in mind and will amaze the most critical of listeners with the quality of sound reproduction. The sixth and seventh channels can also be reassigned to the front left and right channels to allow bi-amp mode on suitable high end speakers.


The projected RRP of the Arcam AVR600 is $5998.

PRICE UPATE: Since the Australian dollar has taken a nosedive, the price on the AVR600 has increased. It is now expected to be $6,998 RRP.
