Second Hand Arcam A80 Integrated Amplifier
The A80 represents a combination of technical excellence, flexibility, ease of use, and superb sound quality. Its slim attractive casework is deceptive because this compact design is no lightweight when it comes to hard-driving performance. The 65 watts per channel along with a generously rated power supply section (8 ohms continuous output power, over 100 watts per channel into 4 ohms) will drive just about any loudspeaker in the marketplace. The A80 operation is handled by a microprocessor. This allows the user access to a menu that provides for a different input trim to be set for each input to compensate for the differences in output level commonly seen between sources such as CD and tuners. The A80 also has a processor function which fixes the level of the AV input so it can be used in conjunction with a home cinema setup. The six inputs include a phono input for moving magnet cartridges and a tape loop for recording. A pre-amplifier output is provided to allow the A80 to drive another power amplifier - this can be especially beneficial to bi-amplify suitable (bi-wireable) loudspeakers.
