About the Arcam SA30

A powerful, sophisticated amp

This is the kind of amp I'd like to build a good two-channel system around. The Arcam SA30 has enough power — 120 watts per channel — to deliver detailed sound at any volume level. The beefy toroidal power transformer inside offers high-current output with very low noise, which is crucial for serious music listening. 

A powerful, sophisticated amp

This is the kind of amp I'd like to build a good two-channel system around. The Arcam SA30 has enough power — 120 watts per channel — to deliver detailed sound at any volume level. The beefy toroidal power transformer inside offers high-current output with very low noise, which is crucial for serious music listening. 

And it's versatile. Processor Mode lets you connect a separate surround sound receiver or pre/pro and use the SA30 as a straight power amp for your front left and right home theater channels. Analog Direct mode lets you bypass all digital circuitry for the classic, warm analog hi-fi experience.

Multiple streaming options

The SA30 has built-in Wi-Fi for connecting to your wireless home network, which opens up fun possibilities for streaming music via online music services and internet radio stations.  Apple AirPlay® 2 lets you stream easily from a Mac®, iPod®, or iPad®. And there's Chromecast built-in for wireless music streaming from compatible devices.

It's also a Roon endpoint, which gives you access to the subscription service's informative and appealing interface and high sound quality. The amplifier's uPnP (Universal Plug and Play) capability lets you access high-res files from a networked hard drive.

Dial in great sound with Dirac Live®

Arcam has built impressive Dirac Live room correction into home theater receivers for a while now. The SA30 is the first time I've seen it included in a two-channel amp. It "listens" to your room using a supplied calibration microphone and creates an EQ curve to fine-tune the output from your speakers and subwoofers based on the unique characteristics of your space. The resulting sound is more realistic and transparent, with tighter bass and reduced room effects.

Versatile Class G amplifier

The engineers who designed the SA30 wanted it to provide the right amount of power at the right time, so your music always sounds exactly as it should. That's why they chose a Class G amplifier, which uses Class A circuitry for low-level signals, then kicks in a higher-voltage power supply for more demanding dynamic peaks. And it does it without adding any crossover distortion or noise.

Convenient connections

The SA30 gives you plenty of options for connecting music sources. There are two Toslink optical digital inputs and two coaxial digital inputs on the back, along with three stereo analog RCA aux inputs. For vinyl enthusiasts, there are two phono inputs — one for turntables with moving magnet phono cartridges and one for moving coil.
