Arcam solo movie £799 @ Nintronics
had mine arrive today and so far its been a vast improvement to my system. highly recommend.
Latest commentsPost comment

If you are looking to use it for stereo use, then I would recommend buying a stereo system to do that. These AV systems are designed for a different use case. As for Bi-amping/Bi-wiring, IMHO it doesnt add any value but you can make your own mind up.

Arcam do make excellent stereo and AV systems but do tend to run hot (the chassis gets warm when the sytem is in use). I am not sure if this system suffers from this issue as well.

Depends how you look at it, yes no atmos but prob not that important to some and no 4k / 4k pass through prob bigger issue, however if you look at it in straight stereo use, using rear channels to biamp your fronts (need to check you can/could on old one) you have a great stereo set up.

Cd/Bluetooth/upnp network/dab radio you would struggle to get better and neater setup for £799

Also if you wanted to run as 3.1 setup so not using rears again great option better than just a soundbar, if you have 4k uhd player nearly all have seperate audio out so can utilise all features.

The interface is a bit slow and clunky

Pretty crap system feature wise when compared to the slim Marantz range. And it's not going to have the same oomph as a full sized Marantz, Pioneer Elite or Yamaha Aventage.

old school tech

No Atmos or HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 with this so whilst its a good product, its nowhere near the latest technology.

More details on this can be found here. Just my 2p worth.

nice spot; another bit of hifi which i have bought that technically i do not need. Nintronics are also selling the pioneer LX88 for £1,199 which is a contender.

Top-drawer receiver if you don't need the faff of installing extra Atmos speakers for height effects

No Atmos or DTS:X for those that are interested.

Just got a 2nd hand MRX-510 from The Movie Rooms with a 12-month guarantee for £799, so keep a look out there if you're interested. This is a great price though for a new 710.

Arrived Thursday, have been playing with it since then and had a full rearrange today.

Key word is accurate - great bass but very well controlled, not farty or overwhelming.

Why do people seem to think this sort or price for speakers is … Why do people seem to think this sort or price for speakers is expensive,a decent set of speakers will last you years and often will hold their money really well so you get a fair chunk of your money back when you decide to change them.I find it more strange that people will gladly throw money away on the cheap tat sound bars that the likes of currys will try and sell you.

Talk about lasting years have a pair of Leak 2060 (£120)bought about 40 years ago from Comet when it really was in an actual warehouse,at the time even though my wage was low I didn't think of them as expensive but worth the many months to pay for them.So for quality these are good value if you like their sound?

why don't we discuss which av receiver will these speakers best instead … why don't we discuss which av receiver will these speakers best instead lol



Sound quality as such isn't really going to vary between receivers, what you get is better processing technology. There are different levels of YPAO, from Yamaha, and Audyssey from Denon/Onkyo, and these will correct for your room shape better than the tech in a cheaper receiver, which will give a better surround experience.

Also you might get more features like bluetooth, or whatever in a pricier one. Plus there is support for things like a second subwoofer, 7.1, 9.2 and so on. Which you don't need at the moment, but you might want in the future?

It's worth looking on ebay for old models/discounts as hifi stuff can be quite steeply discounted.

The irdac has a remote and I flicked between the two sources repeatedly until I didn't know which source was which. I could tell the difference when I then forward /backed between sources. The cables were from the same range too.192kb MP3 is nowhere near as good as cd IMHO.



There's software to do that. Give it two audio files, eg FLAC and mp3, and it'll do blind A-B. If you Google the Hydrogen Audio test/study, they used this software for that.

All I see is loads of speaking lying around the sitting room... It would look awful, but no doubt sounds good...

spoke too soon - call received from them......saying the NHS discount not valid on offer items, and need to provide NHS id card details (that is fine as I do actually work for the NHS and not just trying it on )

Had to repay the 10% to card

On looking through I noticed the bookshelf and tower speakers are discounted/deals, but the CC700V is showing no discount on there, so technically I'd have thought would have had 10% off just that speaker...but oh well

oh and 10% off if work for NHS

took a while and came back to this thread....but finally took the plunge and ordered.....along with 806v bookshelves for rear, and a cc700v for the fronts (cc800 is too deep for our setup unfortunately)

Looking forward to it coming

Focal speaker are French made in paris and high speaker companies who's speaker costing several thousand pounds upwards use their tweeter.

Looks like a great amp... Just bought a new Naim system. Wish I had seen this!

Not easy to be too specific, but efficiency obviously matters & small speakers are not known for being efficient.
Tripaths are cheap, so why not try?
Remember a 3dB increase (eg 86 to 89dB) is a doubling of efficiency. It is also barely detectable to the human ear as a volume level change. After that we start getting into how music-mangling a crossover network can be without good design & good components.
Then speaker cables....& it's all getting out of hand
The keyword is synergy. Some, on paper, odd combinations can sound very satisfying; & vice versa.

BTW: The amps that look more expensive (+ £15 or so. Shocking), than the Lepai 2020A*, (SMSL etc), do not, to my ears, sound any better.

* The 'A' is important. It must have the tone control defeat switch, (which I by-pass anyway).

The internal packaging was slightly dented, and the seal on the Audioquest packaging had been broken at both ends. But the DAC was in there, and in testing it does sound like it should.Before I ordered I checked with Audioquest that Nintronics were an authorised Audioquest retailer; which they confirmed they are.



Interesting to hear this. I got mine from Richer Sounds in the end and they had to order mine in as there was none in store. The seals on mine were also broken but otherwise everything seemed ok. No obvious fingermarks on anything or signs that the contents were taken out of the packaging at any stage.

Very odd.

We are resolving this issue with Amazon FBA as our stock was being held and dispatched by them. We only ship new and boxed items which are bought direct from AudioQuest. ATM we are sourcing new version 1.2 dragonflys and will be replacing these missing items while we explore this issue further with Amazon. There might be a slight delay with getting you the new replacements as they are currently being airshipped in by AudioQuest so should not be too long, but I will contact you shortly. Thanks.



And this morning, a brand new, sealed v1.2 Dragonfly arrived in the post! So overall a good result, as the newer v1.2 units retail for more than the previous versions, so that was a nice gesture on Nintronics' part. And to be fair on them, it looks like whatever happened to their stock happened while it was in the hands of Amazon. I'd be interested to know what happened if they ever find out.

Thanks to Dan, also, for responding in this thread. It's always encouraging to see retailers communicate in public forums.

Hi All,Firstly, i'd like to apologise on behalf of Nintronics for an … Hi All,Firstly, i'd like to apologise on behalf of Nintronics for an issues experienced when ordering audioquest dragon flys.For anyone who has a missing DAC and has received the item in Amazon packaging: - The order was packed from our stock held by Amazon. We send stock of some items to be held by their fulfillment warehouses who pack the order for us and send it out. ( you will see on your order "fulfillment channel: Amazon" or "Amazon Fulfillment"- Before we send any goods to Amazon we quality check the boxes to ensure that they are sealed, brand new and in good condition.- We will look in to this issue and find out if this is an error on Amazon's end but as indicated above all boxes sent from here have been sent New and Sealed.So failing there being an issue at the Amazon fulfillment centre we are unsure how this could have happened.- Anyone, that has emailed us should have had a response, i am checking this personally now. If you are still waiting, a response should be with you shortly.As always, any issues with orders are treated with up most importance and we are always eager to help when needed. You can contact us directly on 01707 320 788RegardsDan HarborneNintronics.co.uk





I phoned Nintronics and spoke to Roger. He promised to look into it. separately, I got a response from my original email from Adam, who didn't know i had been speaking to Roger. I was very happy with the responsive with Nintronics and happy with the outcome of our discussions.
I would still be happy to deal with this company in the future. Just reporting on my own experience after the horror of finding my dac missing.
