Arcam of Cambridge are reinforcing their “performance is all” message with their Reference High End Home Cinema at Sound and Vision Bristol 2017.

Arcam told us: “Designed to show that Arcam Home Cinema kit can outperform most commercial cinemas and built for the world’s prime Pro Integration show ISE, Arcam’s show-stopping ‘Object Based’ Reference Cinema will be at Bristol, providing 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. 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, came up to us and said “you are making the best movie sound we have ever heard” “I heard things today that I missed when doing the mix” So we must be doing something right!”
