16-Channel Home-Theater Powerhouse Features Dolby Atmos, DTS 9.1.6, and IMAX Enhanced: Arcam AVR30 Has ESS 9026PRO DAC, Dirac Live, and Cutting-Edge Connectivity
Make sure you have fresh popcorn on hand once you invite friends and family to experience your home theater anchored by the Arcam AVR30 surround receiver. A 16-channel solution engineered for remarkable performance, AVR30 features the latest Dolby, DTS, and IMAX Enhanced CODECs to ensure you hear, see, and feel everything cutting-edge entertainment can offer. Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 9.1.6 decoding give you the ferocious realism of height tracks, while full 16-channel DIRAC Live calibration guarantees your room acoustics will be dialed-in for optimal playback.
Anchored by a large toroidal transformer, Arcam's signature Class G amplification (read more below), and an audiophile-grade ESS 9026PRO DAC, AVR30 drives speakers with incredible ease and efficiency all the while helping envelop you in cinema-quality sound. If you want to stream music, the presence of Google Cast/UPnP and Bluetooth invite you to do so to your heart's content. Wi-Fi, Ethernet, RS232, and IR control are all here, too.
When it comes to connectivity, the 120Wpc (two channels driven into eight ohms) AVR30 has you covered. Seven HDMI inputs, three HDMI outputs, four pairs of preamp outputs, a multitude of digital outputs, six pairs of line-level RCA inputs, and eARC permit a grand multitude of options and future expansion. HDMI2.0b with HDCP2.2 speaks to the latest video resolution. And Arcam's MusicLife app offers even more control. A headphone amplifier, remote control, supplied calibration microphone, three antennas, and Arcam's five-year warranty complete a powerhouse ready for serious movie and music duty. 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guaranteed.
"As it stands then, the AVR30 is no less than the best AV receiver I have reviewed."
—Tony O'Brien, Stereonet, 2020 Product of the Year Award
What Is Class G Amplification?
Honed to perfection at Arcam from years of testing and implementation by the company's engineers, Class G uses Class A technology exclusively for low-level signals and an additional power supply for larger sections of the audio waveform, an engineering solution that eliminating crossover distortion (caused by Class A/B) and any potential power shortages during extreme swings (suffered by Class A). The result: Truly, the best of both worlds.
Dirac Live Room Correction Technology
Dirac Live is a mixed-phase room correction technology used in cinemas, studios, and luxury cars. With Dirac Live you can easily measure the acoustic characteristics of your loudspeakers and room, and calibrate the sound system to reproduce sound as intended. It corrects not only the frequency response but also the impulse response, a factor critical for accurate staging, clarity, and bass reproduction.
