ARCAM has introduced its Radia Series, representing a significant evolution in the brand’s lineup and highlighting a blend of modern design with ARCAM’s long-standing audio expertise. ARCAM is a portfolio brand of HARMAN Luxury Audio Group, a business unit of HARMAN, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics. The new ARCAM Radia Series is designed to captivate a new generation of audio enthusiasts. This series combines a fresh industrial design with ARCAM’s British heritage that reflects the brand’s commitment to innovative technology and accessible luxury. In addition to a sleek new design that will define ARCAM’s image for years to come, with the Radia family we’ve renewed our focus on intricate performance and embraced the very latest audio technologies.
The Radia Series features three new integrated amplifiers — the A5, A15, and A25 — along with the CD5 CD player and the ST5 high-resolution streamer. Each product in the series stands out with its Radia Yellow color scheme, stylized aluminum shells, and intuitive controls.
The new Radia amplifiers, which include the A5, A15, and A25, are equipped with Bluetooth aptX™ Adaptive receivers, internal antennas, digital inputs, and ARCAM’s signature MM phono stage. The A5 and A15 are 2x50W and 2x80W Class AB amplifiers, respectively, featuring new digital circuitry based on the ESS ES9018 DAC. The 2x100W A25 amplifier raises the bar with a Class G amplifier and the ESS ES9280AQ DAC. The A25 boasts USB-C inputs, LED illuminated highlights, and a seamless OLED display on its front panel, enhancing both functionality and aesthetics.
The CD5 CD player and the ST5 streamer also feature the ES9018 DAC and support an array of high-resolution audio formats. The ST5 streamer — equipped with Airplay 2, Chromecast, Tidal Connect, Spotify Connect, MQA, and Roon — supports a wide selection of music streaming services, including Amazon Music Unlimited, Qobuz, Internet radio, and podcasts. The CD5 CD player enables playback for CD, CD-R, and CD-RW discs, USB mass storage devices, and supports FLAC, WAV, and MP3 formats. Both the ST5 and CD5 boast 24-bit/96-kHz resolution, ensuring a high-quality audio experience.
