fmj integrated amplifiers

Arcam’s  integrated amplifiers represent the pinnacle of Arcam’s audio engineering. We set out to incorporate everything we have learnt in almost 40 years to deliver an amplifier that will set new standards and provide class leading sound quality for the best possible reproduction of your music.

 
 

a49 -from $5,750

With a class G amplifier, toroidal based power supply, acoustically damped chassis, paralleled transistor output stages and exceptionally low levels of distortion and noise the A49 is capable of reproducing music with all its original authority and detail.  The A49 features dual mono volume controls and a balanced signal path all the way though the product together with distortion nulling input multiplexers. Rest assured you will be hearing the music just as the artist intended.

The A49 has been designed to leapfrog the competition with a massive 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 400 into 4 ohms. It delivers 50 watts in pure class A mode while allowing for huge extra power reserves from our latest generation class G topology that is both clever and efficient. During normal operation, distortion is measured in less than one part per million so that this massive power is delivered with total control and finesse. There have been great strides made in improving audio sources and loudspeakers in recent years and the time is right to match them in the field of amplifier design. This ground breaking amplifier is a must audition amplifier for music lovers who understand that power is nothing without control.


a39 -from $2,700

Inside the A39, Arcam has used a class G amplifier, which we’ve previously seen in its home cinema amplifiers. This basically makes the amp capable of big, powerful sound without wasting electricity as heat. The result is not just a more efficient, environmentally friendly amp, but also a much cooler running one. Even when we pushed it to volume levels unlikely to be used regularly at home, it remained relatively cool. It also offers a rather impressive 120-watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 240-watts into 4 ohms, which should make it capable of driving even the most demanding of speakers.

The power at its disposal is one of the first things you’ll notice, with the A39 offering an impressively large soundstage and a superb sense of scale to whatever you throw at it. There’s real punch here and bass notes are weighty and precise, yet agile enough to keep the track driving forward with a decent level of precision. There have been great strides made in improving audio sources and loudspeakers in recent years and the time is right to match them in the field of amplifier design. This ground breaking amplifier is a must audition amplifiers for music lovers who understand that power is nothing without control.


 


a29 -from $1,600

The A29 sounds huge, more like a unit with hundreds of watts at its disposal, with a sense of authority no rival we’ve heard can match. That authority extends to low frequencies, which are rendered with class-leading weight. There’s plenty of composure here, and the ability to organise the music’s myriad of instrumental strands into a convincing whole. This quality never wavers, even at higher volume levels.

The A29 have been designed to leapfrog the competition with a massive 80 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 175 watts into 4 ohms, allowing for huge extra power reserves from our latest generation class G topology that is both clever and efficient. During normal operation, distortion is measured in less than one part per million so that this massive power is delivered with total control and finesse.
