Combine the award winning Arcam A18 and CD17 and enjoy the perfect sonic partnership.

This stunning duo are not only class-leaders in their own right they're also made for each other! When Hi-Fi World magazine tested the A18 they went so far as to say, "One of the best all-round amplifiers at the price". With the CD player they went on to say; "A highly enjoyable musical companion." Both units share the same detailed yet natural sound quality that Arcam has become renowned for.

With a long tradition of amplifier excellence, it's little wonder that the Arcam FMJ A18 is considered by many to be the finest amplifier at its price. Sleek, powerful, well-equipped and with a level of resolution well above many of its contemporaries, it's hard not to be impressed by the A18. Designed with top quality sound in mind, the FMJ A18 shows engineering attention to detail that's unusual at this level. Using a large Toroid transformer, the A18 manages a powerful output of 50 watts per channel. What's more, the quality of power supply and star earthing makes for an extremely low noise level and, therefore, enhanced dynamic response. The pre-amp side of the amplifier features logic control switching. This not only allows for more precise control but also eliminates potentially noisy tone and volume control switches and pots.

Unlike some British rivals, the Arcam FMJ A18 doesn't sacrifice sound quality at the altar of extreme minimalism. So, in addition to the six line level inputs, the A18 also comes with a phono stage for MM equipped turntables. There are two recording outlets plus pre-amp outputs for adding a more powerful power amp of bi-amping. There's also a processor mode switch that lets you control the amp via an AV processor/receiver. Around the front you've got a headphone socket and a 3.5mm input socket for an MP3 or iPod portable.

The large yet subtle display is typical of Arcam being both restrained yet informative. Similarly logical is the control layout. Coming complete with Arcam's CR10 system remote control, the FMJ A18 is able to control a full Arcam system.

At the heart of the CD17 is a Wolfson 8741 DAC operating in differential mode. Combined with an output stage from the range topping Arcam FMJ AV9 processor and a high precision clock, this gives the Arcam FMJ CD17 a precision of sound that you can hear.

Arcam realise that it's not just the engineering quality of the digital circuitry that makes a difference but also the quality of the power supply. For this reason, the Arcam CD17 has a power supply that shows far more attention to detail than most at this price range. The Toroid mains transformer has separate supplies for digital, analogue and servo sections for enhanced clarity of sound. Star earthing lowers noise levels while Arcam's famed "Mask of Silence" technology reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI). Using unique metal fibre matting, the CD17 dramatically reduces EMI that would usually mask fine and subtle nuances of sound. The result is a sound quality that's much more natural than others in its class.

Also helping to boost not just the sound quality but the build quality and look of the player is the FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) casing. Constructed using a mixture of steel and aluminium, the casing is not only solid to the touch but anti-resonant and electronically screened for enhanced sound quality.

Superb individually but stunning as a combination, this is one coalition that guarantees a match made in heaven.

Available at the following stores. Please call to book a demonstration. London City, Maidstone, Leicester, Plymouth, Eton, Reading, Stockport, Hull, Kingston, Norwich and Reigate.
