These additions bolster the series to a total of eight models, including the A5, A15, and A25 amplifiers, the CD5 disc player, and the ST5 music streamer.

First in the lineup is the ARCAM Radia ST25, a digital audio player tailored for those with existing audio separates systems or individuals looking to construct a new Radia setup. Accompanying the ST25 are the ARCAM SA35 and ARCAM SA45 all-in-one systems, boasting G Class amplification and high-resolution music streaming capabilities. These units require nothing more than a pair of speakers for operation.

The ARCAM Radia ST25 serves as ARCAM's flagship music streamer, boasting the iconic Radia styling infused with a plethora of new technologies. It features a new digital audio and streaming platform, a redesigned linear toroidal power supply, and an enhanced user interface facilitated by a high-resolution color display.

The Hyperstream IV DAC technology from ESS powers its audio processing capabilities, complemented by a linear toroidal transformer power supply, ensuring minimal noise levels across the device.

On the front, users are greeted by a 6.5-inch high-resolution display, while connectivity to Wi-Fi networks is facilitated through the ARCAM Radia set-up app, offering compatibility with Apple Airplay, Google Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, and Roon. Additionally, the ST25 features a control link for seamless integration with ARCAM Radia amplifiers.
