HARMAN Luxury Audio Group added three new additions to its ARCAM Radia Series. And, the ST25 digital audio player takes its position as ARCAM’s new flagship streamer. Succeeding the SA30, the new SA35 and SA45 represent the next evolution of ARCAM’s integrated amplifiers, utilizing the company’s latest fifth-generation Class G amplification.

ARCAM’s ST25 maintains the distinctive style of the Radia Series while offering a host of new technologies under the hood, including the latest Hyperstream IV DAC topology from ESS and a redesigned linear toroidal transformer power supply that helps maintain lower noise levels throughout the unit. In addition, the digital audio player’s layout includes a ground plane that spans the entire board, effectively wicking noise and interference away from the sensitive audio components.

The ST25 is equipped with a 6.5-inch high-resolution, full-color display on its front panel. It connects to Wi-Fi networks via the ARCAM Radia set-up app and offers a variety of playback options, including Apple Airplay, Google Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect and Roon. The ST25 can be paired with ARCAM Radia amplifiers such as the A25 through a control link.

Featuring the same streaming platform as the ST25, the SA35 and SA45 add ARCAM’s fifth-generation G Class amplification to create two integrated amplifiers. All that’s needed are loudspeakers for an “instant hi-fi system.” To integrate turntables, both models are equipped with a switchable MC/MM (moving coil/moving magnet) phono stage, while HDMI ARC support simplifies cable connections and device control when connecting compatible TVs. For wireless devices such as Bluetooth headphones, HARMAN says a two-way aptX Adaptive Bluetooth module ensures exceptional sound quality.
