Home theater preamp/processor with 9.1.6-channel processing, Dolby Atmos®, and Dirac Live® room correction

Planning your dream home theater? The AV40 is a worthy contender as the audio/video centerpiece of your system.


There is, I believe, a certain magic to watching a movie in your very own home theater. The Arcam AV40 can help you get there, and then some, thanks to an incredible 16 channels of surround sound processing.

Use this high-performance preamp/processor as the centerpiece of your Dolby Atmos® or DTS:X® surround sound system. You'll enjoy a spectacular show every time you take your seat.


There are a couple of main reasons to go with "separates" for your home theater system, instead of going with a traditional A/V receiver.

The first is that it allows you to upgrade your preamp without replacing your amplification at the same time. If you have an amp system that you love, there's no need to replace it just because a new audio or video format has emerged.

The second is that it allows system customization that's just not possible with most A/V receivers.

This pre/pro lets you go all-out with a 9.1.6-channel surround sound system out of the gate. (That's up to nine traditional surround sound speakers, six speakers dedicated to overhead effects, plus a powered subwoofer). Or expand your system over time, adding additional surround or overhead effects channels to taste.

The AV40 supports up to 16 independent channels of audio (that's a whole lotta sound, friend). To connect to external power amps, you have the choice of using balanced (XLR) or unbalanced (RCA) cables. 


One reason the AV40 performs so well is the advancement of "object-based" surround sound formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, which place sound effects in space around you with pinpoint accuracy. 

The AV40 excels at decoding and processing these object-based soundtracks. You'll hear the movie's score and special effects above, behind, in front of, and beside you — just like you would in an actual theater.

The AV40's advanced video processing ensures a vivid, highly detailed picture with movies, sporting events, and video games. Use it with confidence with your giant TV or projector-based home theater system.


The AV40 includes Dirac Live®, one of the industry's best room correction platforms. Once you download the Dirac software to your Windows® or Mac® laptop, and connect the supplied microphone, you can take precise acoustic measurements of your room.

Then Dirac creates a customized correction curve that fine-tunes the output of your speakers and subwoofers based on the unique sonic characteristics of your space. 

The resulting sound is clear, smooth, and ultra-detailed, with tighter bass and more impactful dynamics than before.
