The Arcam AV888 HD AV Pre-amp Processor redefines both the feature set and sonic performance of high end AV processing and pre-amplification. The result of a massive 2 ½ year ground-up development programme, it features all new state of the art audio stages and balanced audio connectivity. Combined with its natural partner, P777 power amplifier, the Arcam AV888 HD AV Pre-amp Processor represents a new standard for AV amplification.
Wolfson 8741 Digital to Analogue converters are deployed across all seven channels bringing ultra linear conversion of digital audio signals. Individual, multi-regulated power supplies feed all critical audio stages with studio grade Burr Brown DRV134 balanced line drivers used for balanced audio outputs to drive longer cable runs or active speaker configurations with extreme fidelity.
To help eliminate the large volume jumps often found in broadcast TV sound user selectable Dolby Volume* processing is included, a world's first for an AV processor. In addition Dolby Volume includes programme dependant tonal correction to deliver a richer, more realistic sound experience at low listening levels.
The Arcam AV888 HD AV Pre-amp Processor's internal video processing delivers sublime video using broadcast quality scaling and frame rate conversion from Pixelworks. Up-conversion of all video inputs to HDMI output at all commonly used standard or high definition resolutions is possible making system integration a simple affair. Full RS232 and IR connectivity are deployed along with IP control and dedicated interface for control and audiophile playback of iPods using the rDock or rLead.
Arcam's world wide reputation for sound quality has come from over thirty years of experience and legendary attention to detail. All of this experience has been brought to bear in the development of the Arcam AV888 HD AV Pre-amp Processor and as a result its sound quality is simply world-class.
No matter what the program material, from the most explosive block blockbuster action to the most subtle musical detail, the Arcam AV888 HD AV Pre-amp Processor will delivers simply breathtaking performance.
