Arcam C200


The Arcam C200 is a versatile, high performance stereo control unit combining impeccable sound quality with superb standards of construction and a highly attractive modern appearance.

Used with a suitable power amplifier (such as the SA200 or SA150 models) it forms the basis of a top quality sound system.

The control unit is semi-modular in design to allow a choice of inputs and outputs to suit the individual user's needs.

This modular facility also allows the control unit to be readily upgraded at some later date to keep pace with future developments in audio systems.

In standard form the C200 has five switchable inputs accepting signals from analogue disc (MM or MC), auxiliary (either cartridge or line level/compact disc), tuner and two tape recorders (with full dubbing facilities).

The C200 also provides two identical low impedance stereo outputs and also incorporates a separate high quality headphone amplifier.
