Further enhancing the performance of the AV860, Arcam has also included the very latest room correcting technology from Dirac Research. Dirac Live® for Arcam gives Grahams the ability to tune the acoustic performance of the system to any room situation giving the listener the best possible experience in their own home.

An internal tuner provides FM / DAB / DAB+ radio. Worldwide access to internet radio stations is provided through the network connection, which also interfaces to UPnP audio servers. The USB port supports memory devices.

Control is possible via Ethernet, enabling it to be fully integrated with whole house control systems, or via the iOS MusicLife UPnP/control app. RS232, 12V triggers and standard IR control are also included.
