Power meets control with the stunning Arcam FMJ A29 amplifier.

Power with control from Class-G amp

Drawing on over 40 years experience in amps, Arcam have set a new class standard for sound quality. Using a unique Class-G amplifier gives the A29 generous power and incredibly low distortion. This means deep, powerful bass in even larger rooms and with low efficiency speakers. At the same time the subtlest detail is not lost on the A29, meaning the sound is just as the producer intended.

Bring out your records - phono stage as standard
When it comes to the vinyl revolution, the A29 takes a front row seat. The dedicated phono stage (Moving Magnet) built into the A29 is a high quality device in its own right. Unlike many integral phono stages that are simply there to make up the spec, the Arcam's has been carefully developed to provide low noise and high levels of detail within the music.

Hear music from your headphones as it should be - dynamic and revealing
Another revelation with the A29 is the headphone output. Like the phono stage, the headphone output has been painstakingly developed for excellent sound quality in its own right. Unless you own a high-end pair of headphones, the A29's output is good enough to do without a separate headphone amp. Crisp, punchy and low in background noise, listening to the A29 through headphones is a revelation.

Power up your rSeries
With its dedicated accessory socket at the rear, the A29 offers a high quality power supply to the Arcam rLink or rBlink accessories. Alongside the phono stage there are six line level inputs, a recording output and a pre output for adding a larger power amplifier at a later date. If you don't have a turntable, then the phono input can simply be switched to a line level input.

Practical upfront
On the front panel, an aux-in sits alongside the headphone socket, making this ideal for connecting an occasional source like a smartphone, MP3 player or iPod. Finally, the A29 comes with a comprehensive remote control that switches sources, controls volume and balance and also selects display brightness options, including the ability to switch it off altogether.

A powerful heart for a serious hi-fi system, the Arcam A29 intensifies your listening experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear sound I have an Arcam 29 with B and W speakers and enjoy the sound immensely. In another room I have the Arcam 29 with 30 year old Scandyna speakers and the Arcam is a fine amp with these speakers too. I like the way it looks too: neat and slim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity and Power Been loving the A29 for a few months since buying from the Watford store. After hearing at the store some time ago I held back on purchasing as I just couldn't make up my mind over choosing a lower priced Yamaha but a re-listen has led me to buying the most fantastic piece of HIFI equipment I have ever bought. The power is teeth rattling and linked to Monitor Audio Floorstanders I am awaiting a council noise concern notice but what a machine. From high end to deep bass the sound is amazingly rounded and gut-wrenching vs a wonderful old Technics A900MK2 it replaced. I love that old amp but the Arcam is truly phenomenal and I will either go deaf or end up in court if I continue to 'enjoy' this machine the way I listen to Rock and Dance music. Best thing is there is no DAC so it will outlive me too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb amplifier that has delighted us We bought the A29 with the Arcam CDS27 CD player/streamer and the Dali Opticon 6 floorstanders, so I am reviewing the system as a whole. I cannot recommend this combination highly enough. We tried the Arcam components with a range of floorstanders, including the Monitor Audio Silver, the Tannoy XT6F, and also some B&W. To us the Dali was the best match, giving the warmest sound. They are also gorgeous. The amplifier itself is impressive both with CD and with vinyl. In fact, my records have never sounded so good, and I am even considering buying more LPs for the first time in 30 years! The sound improved after a few days "run in", but on the first weekend, it was simply amazing. It even sounded better at home than in the demo room. I have a fairly large 6m x 4m lounge, and playing Metallica's Black album simply blew us away! Our other favourite types of music - pop, vocal, electronic, and folk sound great too. Thanks Scott and Hauke in the Edinburgh store - great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded Arcam A19 to Arcam A29 I have an Arcam cds27 cd with B&W cm8s2 speakers and qed interconnects/cables. I bought it with the A19 amp and it did sound lovely BUT I always felt it was a laid back. I decided to visit my local hifi shop and try an Arcam upgrade ( because i like the sound i have). Anyway, tried the A39, then the A29. The A39 is a much bigger unit, and a lot more powerful. I did not think i needed such a jump so after trying both went for the A29. Difference? Now that i have it home, WOW is the word that sums up the change. Soundstage is huge, music more forward than before and amazing really. Really musical and just great to listen to. Absolutely well worth the upgrade. The cabinet is exactly the same size too as the A19 which is a bonus. If you have a A19 its a great amp and if you play music reasonably queitly save your cash because you wont notice a difference but if you like to turn up the wick a bit (like i do) i cant recommend this amp more highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Sounding Arcam Amp A super sounding Amplifier. tested this alongside the Audiolab 8300 Amplifier in Richer Sounds on Cambridge. The Arcam FMJ A29 was marginally better but both are excellent. the sound quality and sense of realism from the A29 was excellent with the FMJ CDS27 and was a wonderful listen with a beautiful full but also very refined sound. tested the Amplifiers with the same CD player & both were excellent. The Arcam had a touch more depth a realism. Both were way above their price for sound quality. The Arcam FMJ A29 sounding very high end. With a Project Carbon Debut Expirit both Amplifiers were excellent. The sound stage with the Arcam was majestic and very revealing. I now have owned the FMJ A29 for 3 weeks and it is wonderful. I use it with the FMJ CD17 and the Pioneer Carbon Debut Espirit and all I can say is in a mid range hi fi set up it takes the other components to a much higher level. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered Still optimising this product, But straight out of the box has a wide soundstage and is more than powerful enough. I was going to buy an A19 but was concerned that it may not have enough power. No such concern's with this. Using my existing rdac powered straight from the amp for digital inputs, and an Infinity Multifan usb powered from the amps USB (from America). All switched on when powering up the Amp. Very convenient. Just one button to press. Remote only good if you have other Arcam devices. The A19s remote is mor fit for purpose. This amp runs quite cool anyway, Unlike the Denon AVR it replaces which ran very hot. All in all very satisfied.
