Arcam SA20 geïntegreerde versterker

Review Arcam SA20

The Arcam SA20 refines the display of the SA10 and offers more power to drive floorstanders more easily. Both analog and digital it sounds very good. The easy-to-read screen and user-friendly remote control enhance listening pleasure. The sound is calm, controlled but with sufficient dynamics. The Arcam SA20 fits well with different speakers and never gets sharp. An excellent all-rounder.

Arcam is a rather puristic hi-fi brand. The British have high quality integrated mitres as well as av-receivers and sources. They have brought some legendary series. Think of the Alpha series, Black Box (dac) and also the FMJ – Full Metal Jacket – series has a few pearls.
