What is it?
The SA30 is an intelligent integrated amplifier offering an impressive 120W of Class G amplification for impeccable sound, control and efficiency. Featuring Dirac Live, the state-of-the-art room correction technology and equipped with eARC support, the SA30 delivers unparalleled performance and sound quality that’s optimized to its surroundings.
The SA30 is designed with all the latest cutting-edge features – Class G is expertly implemented and, the highest resolution of audio support is presented. Simple streaming is available with a mobile device using the native app of choice via Apple AirPlay2 or Google Chromecast.
How does it work?
The SA30 has built-in Wi-Fi for connecting to your wireless home network, which opens up fun possibilities for streaming music via online music services and internet radio stations. Apple AirPlay® 2 lets you stream easily from a Mac®, iPod®, or iPad®. And there’s Chromecast built-in for wireless music streaming from compatible devices.
It’s also a Roon endpoint, which gives you access to the subscription service’s informative and appealing interface and high sound quality. The amplifier’s uPnP (Universal Plug and Play) capability lets you access high-res files from a networked hard drive.
Arcam has built impressive Dirac Live room correction into home theater receivers for a while now. The SA30 is the first time I’ve seen it included in a two-channel amp. It “listens” to your room using a supplied calibration microphone and creates an EQ curve to fine-tune the output from your speakers and subwoofers based on the unique characteristics of your space. The resulting sound is more realistic and transparent, with tighter bass and reduced room effects.
The SA30 gives you plenty of options for connecting music sources. There are two Toslink optical digital inputs and two coaxial digital inputs on the back, along with three stereo analog RCA aux inputs. For vinyl enthusiasts, there are two phono inputs — one for turntables with moving magnet phono cartridges and one for moving coil
