I believe it’s an Arcam inside.

Is not bad to have an Arcam inside or even Lexicon , unfortunately is not , but they do use the same common parts from other US maker.

Definitely sharing the "same" DNA... ;D ;D ;D

Here's the back layout for AudioControl AV9



Here's the Arcam AVR850

Arcam 850 used class G amplification,
whereas AudioControl used Class AB for the AVR 7 and Class H for the AVR 9.

Thanks for the info. So Arcam AVR850 and AudioControl AV9 quote similar in their amplification module.

Arcam 550 class A/B
Arcam 850 class G
I would relate AVR7 to Arcam 550 while the AVR9 to Arcam 850.
Class G has 2 power rails for the output transistors while Class H uses 1. Both classes are similar in design topology.

As per this polish review, it's class A/B.  Only 850 class G.

"Power amplifiers
Arcam successively introduces power amplifiers in class G into their devices. Their most tangible advantage is their high efficiency (compared to the most common A / B class designs). However, in the new range of receivers this solution was used only in AVR850. In 550, amplifiers with traditional (which does not mean that bad) constructions were placed - in class A / B. That is why designers are not surprised by the efficient cooling"

https://audio.com.pl/testy/kino-domowe/amplitunery-av/2671-arcam-avr550

Arcam did not publish the class for 390 and 550 but states class G is only available for 850.

Only the AVR850 has Class G - the rest use Class AB. Class G is a gem. Love the sound of the SA20 integrated amplifier. AVR550 just doesn't have the grunt.

I think that is why cost so much more for the 850 , but even then the 550 still out perform some jap high end AVR I believe...

I hooked up the AVR550 to drive some B&W 800D3 series speakers - CMI but i guess did better than the Jap AVRs. :D (I already used 2xmonos for the front LR 803D3 so the AVR550 only had to handle Atmos + HTM1D3 + 805D3. But these drop to 4ohm impedance.

that is good to know , will see if we can get hold of this B&W to test on the AudioControl AVR7 and see how it will held up
