With a compact aluminum case and minimalist design, the Arcam Solo Uno can deliver 2 x 50 W of power to four ohm speakers. The device is made in an elegant metal case with a small front panel. At the same time, this model is distinguished by very high quality workmanship, characteristic of high-end Arcam equipment. For its design, this device has already received the prestigious RedDot award.

At the same time, the manufacturer claims that the signal-to-noise ratio reaches an impressive 117 dB. The device circuit is designed in such a way as to reduce the length of audio circuits as much as possible, and selected components are installed in the most important areas from the point of view of sound quality. Arcam Solo Uno is also optimized for low noise and minimal distortion.

Arcam Solo Uno supports connection to your home computer network (either via an Ethernet cable or via Wi-Fi). Apple devices can be connected to Arcam Solo Uno using AirPlay 2 wireless technology. There is also support for GoogleCast and uPnP technology. In addition, Solo Uno can be automatically updated “over the air”, which will ensure the relevance of the model for a long time. In addition, the new product is capable of working as a Roon endpoint. A 3.5 mm AUX input is provided for analog connection. In order to listen to music using Arcam Solo Uno, you just need to add a couple of speakers to it. The device is already equipped with a built-in stereo amplifier, made according to the same principles as the classic Arcam Hi-Fi models, and has a similar sound character. To connect speakers, Arcam Solo Uno is equipped with a pair of high-quality gold-plated screw terminals. The device also has an output for connecting an active subwoofer.

To ensure maximum sound quality when playing compatible content, this unit supports MQA audio format. Arcam Solo Uno connects to the network in a fully automatic mode, and in the corresponding Google Home or AirPay applications it must be set as a playback device. You can control all functions of the device from the remote control, or, which is much more convenient, using a special application for iOS and Android. To create a stereo set with access to streaming services, just add a pair of speakers and, if desired, an active subwoofer.
