At last! The long awaited replacement to the multi-award winning A19 is here.
The new Arcam SA10 amplifier is an ultra-low distortion type Class A/B amplifier. It has 5x analogue inputs (1x line/MM switchable) and 3x digital inputs (2x SPDIF and 1x optical).
The SA10 is 50wpc into 8 ohms (both channels driven).
The ESS Sabre 9016 DAC is built into this amplifier for optimum low jitter digital performance and opens to possibility of digitally connecting a streamer, TV or other Digital soures.
The SA10 also comes with a brand new learning backlit infra-red handset and can be now controlled over IP by ARCAM’s IOS app, Musiclife or by RS232.
The perfect partner to the new Arcam CDS50 CD player and Streamer.

In any amplifier, the signal path is at the mercy of anything that creates noise within the unit. Thus, we spare no expense in using only the most high-quality components, even if it means the cost of our power supplies overtaking that of everything else.
The result, of course, is worth every penny.
A singer’s sharp intake of breath before hitting the chorus, a guitarist’s fingers sliding against the strings – it’s those seemingly minor details that can bring music to life. Fish out one of your all-time favourite albums and play it through a Bluetooth speaker, and guess what? Its sounds like a Bluetooth speaker. Play it through the SA10, and it’s as close to hearing the artist’s performance as you’re likely to get. There’s always joy in digging out an old recording you haven’t heard in years. With the HDA range, it’ll feel like hearing it for the first time.
