Arcam Solo Movie
If the Solo Music is a surprise, and it is, then the Arcam Solo Movie is even more so. Arcam are adamant that there is no sonic trade-off for the similarly sized Solo Movie having extra channels of amplification plus video features.
Featuring a BD/DVD/SACD/CD drive and 250W of amplification in a stylish, low-resonance enclosure, the Solo movie provides high-quality room-filling sound. Four HDMI™(1.4b), coax, optical, phono and 3.5mm line inputs allow for flexible system building without being over complex. Audio can also be streamed to the movie via Bluetooth and also UPnP network either wired or wirelessly. Finally an FM/ DAB/DAB+ tuner is available. On board decoding of all current HD audio formats ensure that absolutely no sonic detail is lost. The movie is supplied with a multi-page learning backlit remote control.
This could easily be all the system you need and it’s priced at a level that allows for the speakers it deserves. Available in 2.1 and 5.1 configurations at quite remarkably low prices.
The recent upgrade to the IOS control ‘app’ brought integrated music services such as Tidal and internet radio to those using IOS devices to control it.
