ARCAM (A&R Cambridge Ltd) are a British manufacturer of home audio equipment based in Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire. Arcam was established in 1976 by students from the University of Cambridge and in 1979 Arcam released their first product, the A60 integrated amplifier. It soon became a classic product, admired for both restrained, sleek appearance and its high-end sound performance.
These days Arcam’s excellent products range from integrated stereo amplifiers through to high performance AV processors and power amplifiers, Blu-ray players and a successful range of smaller lifestyle and portable products.
In the 1980s, the formal company name of A&R Cambridge Ltd was shortened on the products themselves to “ARCAM”, although the company’s trading name continues to remain as A&R Cambridge Ltd.
