NAD M10 v2 vs ARCAM SA30: BEST Amplifier w/ DIRAC under £2500

In this video I am review comparing the NAD M10 v2 and the Arcam SA30, both are HiFi Streaming Amplifiers with a similar feature set and both offer Dirac room correction. I think if your looking for a streaming integrated amplifier around this money, under £2500 especially one that includes Dirac these would be the two you choose between so I wanted to compare them to see which is the best and which offers the best value.

At the time of making this video there is a huge price difference between them which really stretches the value proposition and the idea of which is the best value.

The Arcam SA30 costs £1899,hda,integrated-amplifiers,sa30.htm

The NAD M10 v2 costs £2399

But then an additional Full Dirac licence is needed for about another £85

Worth considering is I offer a Dirac Calibration service to help you get the best out of it and your system, for more information see here
