Arcam Diva A70 review

 

A lot of FMJ technology has trickled down to this new amp

An appealing amp that achieves a real balance between musicality and detail

It may not be everyone's cup of tea as some may find the psychoacoustics quite wearing

This may be a brand new model from Arcam, but it is clearly a chip off the old block on the outside at least. Its fascia bears a distinct resemblance to existing models, with details like the layout of knobs and switches...

Sound has real snap and pace to it, with natural dynamics and very good resolution of details.

Arcam returns to core values and it pays off with this affordable stereo amplifier; the DiVA A70.

Well chosen feature set and excellent user interface

Power output is modest ; no power input

This is a very well balanced amplifier; slightly low power.

Product Specifications

Arcam's design team features some of the most skilled engineers in the business, each dedicated to different areas of design. The A70 represents a balance of cutting edge electrical design and painstaking listening trials to ensure a truly unique level of insight into any recording. Arcam favors electronic user controls, avoiding the need to pass delicate audio signals through mechanical devices such as potentiometers and switches. Although more costly to implement, this technique allows a more faithful reproduction of the music by ensuring the shortest possible signal path and long term reliability. The A70 makes full use of this approach, a first for an entry-level amplifier from Arcam. Going above and beyond normal amplifier design, Arcam has utilized its proprietary "Mask of Silence" technologies with the A70. In particular, much use has been made of the "Stealth Mat" material normal found in the company's premium FMJ range. This strategy, for reducing stray electromagnetic interference in combination with critical vibration damping, ensures every last ounce of performance is realized from the unit's audiophile grade components. Gold plated RCA phono and speaker sockets complete what is a feature packed amplifier with stunning performance at the price. Recognizing that not all stereo systems operate in isolation, the A70 features both IR control and 12v trigger sockets for integration into bigger systems. Full remote control is enabled thorough the included handset.
