Arcam is based just outside the famous university city of Cambridge, and their story started the classic way: two friends with a passion for music and electronics met up while engineering students at Cambridge University, and founded Amplification and Recording Cambridge in 1976.
Arcam have been developing and producing CD players for almost 30 years, and for 40 years the descendants of the amplifier with which the company started in consumer electronics, and as far back as 1995 expanded into home cinema electronics, developing a world-class reputation for making some of the best-sounding AV electronics.
Arcam exists for one simple reason: to bring the best possible sound into people’s lives, whether from movies or their favourite music. Arcam are committed to engineering products able to deliver audio performance so lifelike it connects you straight to the heart of music, and wraps you in the world of movies.
A decade ago, Arcam developed the style and performance of a compact Hi-Fi & Movie systems, bringing Arcam’s legendary sound quality into ‘non Hi-Fi’ homes.
In home cinema Arcam have developed their own DVD players and, more recently, Blu-ray players from scratch here in the UK, engineering them using their decades of experience in CD players to ensure they play music as well as they do
Hi-fi and home cinema systems are always evolving, and we are here to help you keep up to speed with the latest developments, and make sure you make the right decisions.
