A home theater juggernaut

Arcam is one of the A/V industry's most respected brands, and the AVR20 is an excellent example of why. This ultra-capable home theater receiver delivers phenomenal sound quality. It also sports a clean, easy-to-use front panel and an intuitive on-screen interface.

Use it to drive your Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X® system, and enjoy dynamic, detailed sound with music, movies, and even video games.

Arcam AVR20 home theater receiver

The AVR20's generous preamp outputs let you add optional external amplifiers to expand your system.

Sound from every corner of your room

One reason the AVR20 performs so well is the advancement of "object-based" surround sound formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, which place sound effects in space around you with pinpoint accuracy. 

The AVR20 excels at decoding and processing these object-based soundtracks. You'll hear the movie's score and special effects above, behind, in front of, and beside you — just like you would in an actual theater. 

Plenty of power, plus room to expand

This receiver sends 110 watts per channel to up to seven connected speakers — enough to drive most stand-mounted or floor-standing speakers.

If you're designing a large surround sound system, you'll want to take advantage of the generous preamp outputs on the AVR20's rear panel. You can feed signal — up to 11.2 channels — to optional external power amps without the need for a separate home theater preamp/processor.

Legendary room correction

The AVR20 includes Dirac Live®, one of the industry's best room correction platforms. Once you download the Dirac software to your Windows® or Mac® laptop, and connect the supplied microphone, you can take precise acoustic measurements of your room.

Then Dirac creates a customized correction curve that fine-tunes the output of your speakers and subwoofers based on the unique sonic characteristics of your space. 

The resulting sound is clear, smooth, and ultra-detailed, with tighter bass and more impactful dynamics than before.
