Product Description



Power with control from Class-G amp

Drawing on over 40 years experience in amps, Arcam has set a new class standard for sound quality. Using a unique Class-G amplifier gives the AVR850 generous power and incredibly low distortion. This means deep, powerful bass in even larger rooms and with low-efficiency speakers. At the same time, the subtlest detail is not lost on the AVR850 meaning the sound is just as the producer intended.

Dirac Live Technology

Further enhancing the performance of the new AVR850, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live allows you to fine tune the acoustic output of the system to any room situation giving the listener the best possible experience in their own home. Any unwanted bloom or sharpness is reduced automatically for the most natural and airy sound reproduction.

Music Sources

Spotify Connect is enabled to allow streaming plus unlimited radio stations from across the globe. Powered by Arcam’s legendary amplifier technology, the Arcam AVR850 delivers fantastic music reproduction from all music sources in addition to a cutting edge surround sound cinema performance.

Dolby Atmos & DTS:X

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are the exciting new surround sound technologies from the masters of cinema sound. These technologies will transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with captivating, multidimensional sound that fills your room with amazing richness and depth. Music, people, and objects come alive in breathtaking detail and flow in precise choreography all around you, making you feel like you are truly there. The combination of Dolby Atmos / DTS:X and Yamaha AV receivers will fill the room with multidimensional sound that makes you feel as if you are right in the middle of the story unfolding on the screen. 

Note: for a 5.1.4 system, an additional 2-channel amplifier is required. Whereas a 7.1.4 system will require an additional 4-channel amplifier.
