Arcam SA30 Amplifier Wins EISA Best Product Award
Arcam is proud to announce that its SA30 amplifier has been awarded ‘EISA Best Buy Amplifier 2020-2021.' EISA (European Image and Sound Association) has recognised the G Class-powered and streaming-equipped SA30 as one of Arcam’s most significant ever integrated stereo amplifiers, joining the likes of its maker’s historic A60 as another truly classic two-channel design from the Cambridge-based specialist.
The Arcam SA30 Class G intelligent integrated amplifier counts DIRAC Live room correction technology, eARC support, and full MQA decoding in its extensive feature list. It also supports AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast and Roon. Custom installers can rely on full I/P control, including Control4 and Crestron, and Arcam’s bespoke MusicLife app enables music playback and control via Android and iOS devices.
EISA is the unique association of 55 special interest magazines from 29 countries. Internationally known for the European EISA Awards, EISA started in 1982 and is now a truly international brand, with members in the USA, Canada, India, Hong Kong/China, Japan and Australia.
This year’s EISA judging timeline was extended, giving the EISA Expert Groups additional time to conduct their comprehensive testing, as well as take part on regular virtual meetings, resulting, as ever, in meticulously judged categories. Arcam recognises the care taken here and thanks EISA for its adaptability and attention to detail.
“We are thrilled to receive the EISA Best Product award for our SA30 integrated amplifier,” said Scott Campbell, Sales Director at Harman Luxury Audio. “The SA30 draws on Arcam’s unrivaled excellence with G Class amplification to deliver beautifully balanced power, together with cutting-edge streaming capabilities. Recognition by EISA is always welcome and our engineering team very much deserves the plaudits.”
