NEWS: Arcam's new speakers for Solo music and movie systems go on sale

Arcam's new range of speaker packages for its Solo Music and Solo Movie 5.1 systems are now available in silver and black. We first reported on them in our Munich show roundup last month, and you can now pick up the full 5.1 surround sound package for £1200.

The speaker systems are available in several different combinations: plain stereo, a stereo + subwoofer 2.1 system and full 5.1 version. Each package uses the Muso mini monitor and, where applicable, the Logo subwoofer.

The Muso is a compact steel/damped aluminium mini monitor with a 8.5cm polymer/aluminium magnetically-screened cone woofer, a 25mm aluminium-dome tweeter and gold-plated 4mm binding posts. It can be used as a front, rear or centre speaker and can be bought individually for £140, or as part of a stereo or surround sound package.

The £500 Logo subwoofer has a 200W Class D amplifier, a 10in magnetically-shielded driver and 2in driver voice coil to boost bass performance in larger rooms.
