I routinely mention the British Arcam brand (aslgroup.com) in any roundup of high-value, high-performance electronics. This now legendary firm consistently offers some of the best sound for the dollar to be had anywhere. And not only do their amps, DVD and CD players sound great, but they are built for the long haul, like a good tank should be. Arcam supports an amazing in-house engineering department that regularly astonishes the high-end audio industry with its innovative and forward-thinking designs. Rest assured that the Arcam product you purchase today will easily allow for future upgrades to that particular component’s technology, so you have little to worry about in regard to obsolescence.

The Arcam AVR300 ($1,999) audio/video receiver continues the company’s tradition of groundbreaking engineering and construction quality. Plain and simple? It would be nearly impossible to find anything close to the AVR300’s performance at anything near its quite affordable price point. If you are planning to upgrade an existing surround system, or are thinking of finally taking the plunge into the full-blown home theater experience, you cannot go wrong considering Arcam’s AVR300; it absolutely blows the lid off all but the most expensive separate components.
