ARC I/50

ARC blushes – That's if you get their new I/50 [$5'000] 50wpc 6550-based integrated in the new red Cerkote finish. Instead you could also do pale yellow, blue, white or black top plates plus a white tube cage. Further choices are to be found in a $750 phono module and, for next year, a DAC board. Regardless there are 2:1 RCA:XLR inputs, a headphone jack, 4/8Ω output taps, top-mounted controls for power, input and volume copied on the remote and two dot-matrix display tubes for input and volume. This no longer looks like grandpa's Audio Research, does it?
