This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:
Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

Mixing class-leading surround sound quality with the power to thrill, the Arcam AVR550 brings home cinema to life.

Power boost
With multi-channel power up from 60 watts per channel (AVR390) to a mighty 90 watts, the AVR550 delivers smooth, effortless power. The 50% increase in power not only improves music and soundtrack dynamics but also fills larger rooms more easily. That extra drive comes in handy for less efficient speakers, too.

The Arcam sound difference
Using audiophile-grade components, the AVR550 delivers quality to match the power. At the heart of this Arcam AVR is a toroidal power supply. Unusual for an AV receiver, this type of power supply is more usually only found in high-end stereo amps. It helps the AVR deliver smooth, dynamic sound that works equally as well with music as movies.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X with decoding up to 7.2.4 for totally immersive sound
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are now well established as providing truly immersive sound through ceiling or up-firing speakers. The Arcam AVR550 offers both systems, giving a 5.2.2 system with twin ceiling or up-firing speakers. This, however, is just the start. With processing for 7.2.4 channels, you can add a 4-channel power amp (or two stereo power amps) and not only double the ceiling speaker count but also add additional effect speakers – giving total sound immersion.

IMAX Enhanced Technology
IMAX has partnered with DTS and award-winning Hollywood sound mixers to deliver stunning levels of sound quality. Only the highest quality home cinema equipment meets the standard. IMAX enhanced content is due on HDR streaming and UHD Blu-ray and promises to offer the next step-up in sound from the already impressive DTS:X.

Wide-ranging connectivity
Featuring seven HDMI inputs and three outputs, the AVR550 handles the most complex AV systems. The six HDMIs are HDMI 2.0a and HDCP2.2 compatible (for UHD 4K sources) with the seventh being MHL compatible (for connecting a smartphone). Other inputs include six digital and seven analogue (with a front-mounted 3.5mm AUX) inputs, making this Arcam AVR hugely adaptive to all types of sources.

HDMI Zone 2 output
Triple HDMI outputs make the AVR550 even more versatile. Use two of the outputs within the same room for connecting a TV and projector simultaneously. The third HDMI is independent, making it ideal for sound and vision in a second room (HDMI2.0a/HDCP2.2 compatible).

Dirac Live for Arcam gives you the very best sound in your room
For the very best sound in your room, Arcam has included powerful room correcting technology from Dirac Research. This uses a microphone and dedicated software to take multiple readings around your room and feed the information back to the amplifier for a completely bespoke response (professional set-up recommended).

Network control
Connect to your network via Ethernet (wi-fi not included) and you get access to a wide range of networking features. These include UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) for streaming from other network devices, Spotify Connect (requires Spotify Premium account) and Internet radio.

Internet, DAB and FM – all the radio you need
Internet radio opens up access to a choice of hundreds of radio stations from around the world. Backing this up, the built-in DAB and FM tuners give wide-ranging access to all your favourite stations, including popular digital only stations, such as BBC 6 Music and 4 Extra.

MusicLife iOS control app
If you have an Apple iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad, then you can take full control of streaming music to your Arcam device with the MusicLife control app. It lets you stream music directly from your device as well as servers or computers connected via UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play). The latest version brings Internet Radio, Podcasts plus streaming from TIDAL and Qobuz. Advanced features, such as library searching, sorting, shuffle and repeat playback are also catered for.

Power and quality come together, to make the Arcam AVR550 an unbeatable AVR.
