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 Great Sound I bought this amp Dec 2017 and I have been pleased with the sound quality, plenty of detail, powerful sound good bass, goes loud without distortion. Only thing that I don't like is it has an annoying humming noise coming from the amp, which is quite distracting in quiet parts of a song and takes me away from the music. I use a mains conditioner and I did not get a hum noise from my last amp so it's not dirty mains supply, its definitely Arcam A29

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great analogue amplifier. The A29 has a solid feel and good looks. The sound quality also does not disappoint. The sound is more focused than the older, cheaper amp it is replacing. The main reasons I chose the A29 are:- The compact size. The relatively large number of analogue inputs, including a dedicated phono input for my turntable. The record out connections for my ancient CD recorder. The reasons for not giving the A29 5 stars are:- The remote control is very annoying. It is supposed to be a smart remote for all Arcam products, but when you select certain inputs (CD, tuner) it no longer controls the amp unless you first press the Amp button. The other disappointment is that the accessory power output does not work with my irDAC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Natural Sound This amp sounds very good tonally- Extremely neutral in tone which is to my taste. Decent dynamics and musical. The only criticism is that the amp is rich and warm and therefore needs carefully matching with sources, speakers and cables. I found the sound to be too subdued and rich using an Arcam source with this amp while listening to lots of genres of music. Get the synergy right and it is great. Build is very good (the remote is acceptable and could be better at this price).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your ears will love you. Upgraded to this a few weeks ago but waited to post a more considered review. I listen to rock, classical, acoustic, reggae, soul, funk. All sounds crystal clear and there is a great stereo arc and everything well defined. Lots of power but very "musical" sounding. I disagree with some of the reviews on here because to my ears, even at low volumes, this still sounds fantastic and is a huge improvement for the money. The only downside is that I can now hear the limitations of my turntable. Ah well, back to the shop next month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to set up We bought this amp as a replacement for our old Arcam amp which was 25 years old. We loved the sound generated by Arcam amps so the purchase of this new Arcam amp was a must and we haven't been disappointed. The sound and the ease of use of the amp is satisfyingly brilliant. We must also say that the service at the Prestwich store was excellent from start to finish and Sales Person Declan was incredibly helpful. With Declan's help we were able to connect the amp ourselves to our numerous outlets. All in all we are VERY satisfied customers.

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.
