STOCK OF ARCAM’S AVR360 Home Theatre Receiver arrives in NZ this week. The AVR360 replaces the AVR350, which is now discontinued.
The AVR360 incorporates technology that has trickled down from the development of the company’s AVR600 receiver and AV888 processor, with upscaling and cross-conversion carried out by a high-performance Torino video processor that supports all resolutions up to 1080p/60 with support for 24fps and 3DTV pass-through. The RS232, IR and 12V control interfaces allow easy integration with smart-home installations, and the warranty is two years.
Like Arcam’s other receivers, the AVR360 is performance orientated as opposed to feature driven, but it does have most of what today’s home theatre buff would consider essential in a receiver. This includes decoding for the lossless surround formats (DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD), HDMI 1.4 with 3D capability and ARC (audio return channel), which eliminates an extra audio cable by allowing a TV to send audio upstream to the receiver; and CEC (consumer electronics control), which allows components to share commands. The AVR360 also offers USB and network audio streaming and its network media player can be driven by an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using Arcam’s Songbook App.
