The Arcam AVR10 receiver supports Dolby Atmos three-dimensional sound format (5.1.2 configuration). To use the expanded 7.1.4-channel configuration, you must supplement the system with a 4-channel power amplifier or two stereo speakers. It is possible to work with the DTS:X 3D audio format, access to which will open after a software update. The highly efficient Dirac Live speaker auto-calibration system allows you to take measurements using a microphone at 9 points and process the results on a computer with subsequent loading of the data into the AV receiver. The power supply provides 60 W of power for each of the 7 channels (at 8 ohms).
