Separates? Nah. Arcam AVR850 Proves You Don't Need No Stinkin' Separates.
Top marks for sound quality, no need for separates, claims reviewer Mark Vignola of Reference Home Theater.
When the Arcam AVR850 hit the market last year it reset the bar for what could be accomplished with a top-flight audio video receiver. Now, those of you who know Arcam won't be surprised by this. They have been producing the best sounding AVRs for twenty years. But the AVR850 is special, even amongst such august company. Every cinemaphile and music lover should give this new model a listen. With powerful Class G amplification, Dirac room correction, and 40 years of audio design wrapped up into an elegant single box, it'll have you questioning the need for any multi-box separates solution from those "other guys". $6000 US retail price.
