Arcam Solo Music £699 @ Richer sounds

Found 26th Dec 2017
This is really a great little all in one with quality on its side.
What Hi-Fi 5 star tested at £1500 makes this little unit a fine buy.
Just add a set of decent speakers and your away
At £699 this is a snip considering it as everything but the kitchen sink

No idea to be honest but it is a snip at this price although its probably not for most folk on here.
I’m sure they will have it on demo...I know ours does
Why the cold votes? Cheaper elsewhere? I can't afford to spend the money on a unit like this but the price is good. Maybe it's because it's a never heard of brand. 😜
It will be the last of proper arcam as it has now be bought out by a overseas company.
Shame really as arcam made some fine separated BITD and got me into the whole game when I was wasn’t grey haired.
Probably most of people think it's some Chinese noname. Not many people appreciate HIFI nowdays, as many people prefer beats like sound. Any way thanks for posting! That's a + from me. However, I got another Arcam last year for similar price.
For the younger folk. Arcam was a well respected mid to high end HiFi manufacturer with particular success in the '90's.
Great deal. I have the much earlier Solo. Cost £1k and it’s still going strong, what, 12 or 13 years later? Arcam = Acoustic Research Cambridge IIRC - we used to do all their web stuff for them around year 2000

I got the original Solo too and the R dock that you needed for your pod back then but it's been sat in its box in the garage for quite a few years now, amazing bit of kit so it's rather criminal how it doesn't see the light of day any more I suppose

Plenty of elders on here who won't have a Scooby about Arcam, never mind the youngers, but such is life one might say.

Yeah I was reading that somewhere and I think there is talk of taking lots of the work overseas too so some very skilled workers may be out of a job too, nothing is sacred because money talks.
I still have some of their Alpha separates. Quality products.

My old Solo has Google Chromecast plugged into the “Front” port so is in regular use for streamed music. DAB still great too.
