Power 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 A39 huge power and incredibly low distortion. A power output of 120 watts per channel or an astonishing 240 watts per channel at four ohms, put this amp firmly at the top of the powerhouse league. This means deep, powerful bass in even larger rooms and with low efficiency speakers.

Sweet sounding Class-A
Much more than just a powerhouse, the A39 also delivers up to 20 watts per channel in pure Class-A mode. Class-A amplification is neither as efficient nor powerful as other types but it does offer a sweet, mellifluous sound that compares favourably to valve amps. With the A39 you get the best of both worlds. Sweetness of sound and huge power with Class-G when you need it.

Bring out your records - phono stage as standard
When it comes to the vinyl revolution, the A39 takes a front row seat. The dedicated phono stage (Moving Magnet) built into the A39 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 A39 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 A39's output is good enough to do without a separate headphone amp. Crisp, punchy and low in background noise, listening to the A39 through headphones is a revelation.

Power up your rSeries
With its dedicated accessory socket at the rear, the A39 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.

Plenty of sockets including two pairs of speaker outputs
Ideal for a pair of speakers in another room, the A39 features twin speaker outputs. 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 A39 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.

Power and precision come together in perfect harmony with the Arcam A39.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arcam A39 Integrated Great price and great amp. Alway been a big fan of Richer sounds not so sure now. Website incredibly messy. Unhelpful initial branch. No inter branch dealings. Had to pay £50 for courier from London branch and wait a week. Most suppliers do next day and delivery included/cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True upgrade for sensible money I have only had this amp for about 2 weeks now but am very very pleased. Was in the market for an amp around the £700-800 mark and saw this amp reduced to my budget. Arranged a demo at the Watford branch and was so impressed with the sound quality my money was going to get me. Service was straightforward and excellent. Had been to other hifi chains and had been steered towards products that I didn't feel were right for me. No problems at richer sounds though. Was warned delivery may take a few days but was delivered the very next day. The 6 year warranty makes a lot of sense. Complete cover and my money back at the end of the six years if not used. Unless I've missed something here, why wouldn't you take this??? Lovely product, good service and will shop here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound when paired with Arcam CDS27 It's been six weeks since purchase, enough time to form a considered opinion. This replaced my ageing Arcam Alpha 9 which was bi-amped with the 9P and gave many years of pleasure. I was going to get the small fault in the Alpha 9 repaired but decided to take advantage of Richer Sounds putting the A39 in the sale. I'm glad I did. I have not listened to products by other brands and can only make a comparison with my previous product. This is in fact a joint review with the CDS27 purchased two years previously, now the two contemporary products are paired. I again wanted an Amp which drove two pairs of speakers with the added benefit of adding a third set with my original 9P. I can play any one, two or all three speakers with this set up. With the A39 I only use the CD, Tuner and very occasionally AUX modes. With the CDS27 I can play CDs, stream both from my Western Digital NAS drive and stream through Tidal (other streaming services available). Through a fifteen year old set of bookshelf Missionloud speakers the opening guitar chords of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now sound alive, the guitar is in the room. With Richard Goode's Beethoven piano sonatas you can imagine you're ten rows back at London's Wigmore hall. Sting sounds as fresh as ever on Fragile. This is a great paired set up, it has oodles of power (at least to drive small-medium Mission and Quad loudspeakers), my Grado headphones sound great through the 3.5mm jack. I use Arcam's (quite good with a few small glitches and not android compatible) Music Life app through my I-Phone. One small annoyance is that you cannot control the volume with the app and have to use the supplied remote control within line of sight of the A39 (a first world problem if ever there was one). Also there is no Bluetooth (my son's complaint), I don't think you need it with the set up I have. Beware also with where you place the unit which is much deeper than the CDS27. I have it in a John Lewis wooden sideboard hidden away with large slots cut out at the back of the unit for cables. I had to cut out a much larger hole as the A39 protrudes out of the back. Buy a dedicated hi-fi unit you say which you would be right but I just prefer the discreet look. If you only wish to power one set of speakers then perhaps go for the smaller A29 which gets very good reviews, if like me you like to walk between rooms (Kitchen and lounge music) then buy these two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good sound and good build quality I have had the a39 for three weeks and it sounds better every time i have it on. It reminds me of my A60 i had in the late 70's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Punchy bass with good focus Amazing Amp... timing is snappy bass is tight sound is smooth and transparent mind you nothing happens without Atlas cables using B&W 603 floorstanders.. could use much better source IrDAC overall impression - fantastic warmth and sound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall I have had a positive impression of the A3 I have just purchased this amp through richer sounds telephone sales. This is a smooth sounding amp that captures detail in the music. I have paired this amp with my mission 765 the improved level of detail and clarity was immediately apparent. Overall I have had a positive impression of the A39 I'm Very pleased with my purchase. However, HOWEVER the box was BADLY damaged on delivery, I was disappointed by the lack of care. A £1000 AMP TREATED LIKE JUNK, NOT IMPRESTED.
