Any chance they could buy the Squeezebox software from Logitech and do an Arcam Touch?
Rega Planar 2 with Bias 2 cartridge, upgraded by Inspire Quest adding;
50 mm solid birch plinth with acrylic coned feet, Maccasor Ebony veneer, 20mm acrylic platter, Acri mat, Puka record weight
Arcam cd72, Squeezebox Touch fed by 2t Vortexbox, CD and Touch into Rega Dac, Arcam A80, Mission 773se Speakers
It would be good to get an assurance that the people who buy their products don't become unwitting Beta Testers.

Any news on a replacement (that works) on the mid range 500 AV amp ?
The 400 is not beefy enough (but does work), the 500 would be perfect in my budget range.
The 600 is over budget.
Im an Arcam fan boy but the gremlins are putting me off.
We all want an Arcam av experience that puts those gremlins to rest.
Will they make headphones?
Arcam Alpha 7 CD --> Arcam Alpha 6 Amp --> AKG K701/Grado SR80i.
Is it true that Arcam plans to drop SACD? (Very much hope answer will be "no".)
Arcam are investing heavily in beefing up their support channels and aplogise to those of you who have had problems.

I have spoken to them on this number today and unfortunately all their technical staff are busy in-house training. They have promised to call me back tomorrow.
Fair enough. Lets see if they are true to their word.
How quickly, realistically, will we find out Arcams new ranges?

No call, I can't say I'm surprised.
Nice products Arcam, but in my experience your customer service is very poor.

Thanks, I've just seen the piece about the A19. Looks good but I'd be much more interested to know what changes have been made sound-wise from the A18. Thanks again.

SORRY! got the price wrong!
Arcam decided to go for broke on performance and not worry too much about exact price point.
The resulting A19 is a giant killer for £650
Hope the WHF team agree (-:
