I'm selling this due to downsizing to a desktop system. It comes with fully working remote control and instruction manual As you can see this is a highly featured amp with lots of inputs and outputs, and for lovers of vinyl it has an in-built phono amp. It has the big, powerful, warm sound typical of this classic British brand, which is perfect for vinyl replay. It has EQ controls for bass and treble, a headphone socket and a frontal input for a phone or digital music player. There are a few very minor marks on the top and front but these are hardly noticeable. There are a number of good reviews on-line.

Below is the manufacturer's description:

The A18 combines the latest component technologies and Arcam’s refined and careful engineering design approach to produce an incredibly natural sound from any music source. The A18 is designed to be a powerful and musical amplifier and is constructed with outstanding build quality for its price. The A18 is the perfect choice for people looking for an amplifier offering exceptional music reproduction as part of an affordable system

The A18 represents an ideal introduction to true Hi-fi amplification. It’s sleek design, flexible connectivity and powerful amplifier stages deliver a level of reproduction far beyond that of “budget” separates systems. Using the latest in amplifier technology plus over thirty years of audio design experience the A18 is an astounding amplifier, true to Arcam’s tradition of affordable excellence.

Using very high quality components and carefully designed multi-layer PCBs the A18 is designed for performance from the ground up. Connectivity is highly flexible allowing direct connection of seven line level sources including a dedicated 3.5mm front panel jack socket for portable music players.

Operation of the A18 is simplicity itself. A rotary encoder allows precise control over volume and other selections such as tone controls and balance. This means delicate audio signals need not travel to and from the front panel or through potentially noisy mechanical potentiometers or switches.

The A18s large power supply uses a toroid transformer which ensures an extremely quiet backdrop to music and superb stability during large bass transients. The chassis features a damped “Sound Dead Steel” construction virtually eliminating mechanical influences on the electronics.
