arcam home cinema bristol 2017Do you dig state-of-the-art Home Theatre? Treat yourself at The Bristol Show by checking out the Arcam Reference Cinema.

The Arcam Cinema apparently “sounds better than 99% of commercial cinemas and sonically outperforms every competing brand of consumer Home Cinema”. Drop in on them at Sound and Vision at The Marriott Hotel, Bristol and hear for yourself.

At ISE, the Hi-Res codec designers and sound engineers told Arcam

you are making the best movie sound we have ever heard”

arcam av860This will be a world-first opportunity to hear the new High-End FMJ AV860 AV Pre-Processor in action, partnered with around 6000 watts of phenomenal FMJ Class G power.

The Arcam electronics will be driving a complete KEF Reference speaker array in a full Atmos and DTS:X configuration, with video via the very latest Sony 4k projection technology.

Real kicking Bass will be provided by two Arcam Custom 18-inch subs, hand built for the show.

Everything will be EQ’ed and the room corrected using Dirac Live for Arcam, which is built in to all Arcam AV components.

Reference Cinema is no idle claim

At ISE 2017 the engineers who write the Hi-res audio codecs and movie sound designers / mixers who put the soundtracks together said

you are making the best movie sound we have ever heard… I heard things today that I missed when doing the mix”
