ARCAM has announced four new home theater models, the AVR11 ($3,050), AVR21 ($4,700), and AVR31 ($6,900) receivers, and the AV41 processor ($5,250), all available this month. All four models include HDMI 2.1 with HDCP2.3 for 8K at 60fps or 4K at 120fps, along with support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Naturally, audio specs include Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D audio formats, and room correction is provided by Dirac Live.
The receivers and preamp also support Apple Airplay2, Google Chromecast, Bluetooth with aptX HD, Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, Roon, and MQA, and include dual ESS9026PRO audiophile DACs and ESS reference voltage regulators. The lower-priced AVR11 and AVR21 have seven channels of Class AB power amplification, rated at 7 x 85 watts (all channels driven) and 7 x 110 watts (all channels driven), respectively. The AVR11 features native 12-channel decoding, while the AVR21 adds a further four channels. The flagship AVR31 receiver, meanwhile, carries seven channels of advanced Class G amplification enabling high efficiency operation that uses additional power only when needed.
