Default Arcam Alpha 10 Power Amplifier

Hi.

I have just acquired one of these amps.

Has anyone modded one ?

Hi.

It counts, I suppose.

Do you have any schematics?

Nope, i went to buy one once, after reading all the mags, but walked out the shop with an Exposure Super XX. No regrets 9 years on.

Good luck.

Good deal. They were going for around 300 on ebay last time I looked.

I've just given the case a quick blow-over with spray paint and although it will never be 100%, it's passable.

The big decision is whether to keep it and mod it OR Ebay.


I have the service manual in .pdf format fron Arcam if anyone wants it.
