It's the first day of the CES2014 show in Las Vegas and Arcam has unleashed the new A49, a 200 Watt per channel stereo integrated Amplifier. The new amp, the most powerful stereo amplifier the company have produced, is no 'run-of-the-mill' circuit design either, featuring Class G power amplifiers with 50 Watts of Class A power in the first instance.
Built on a large, robust chassis the A49 is a fully balanced affair offering the lowest distortion ever from an Arcam amplifier. No matter what the speakers, now matter how large the room the A49 has a huge power reservoir capable of delivering a continuous 200 wpc into 8 ohms rising to 400 wpc into 4 ohms. It's perfect for modern music too with an onboard PSU for Arcam's rSeries of wired and wireless DACs.
Early reactions from the CES crowds are impressive to say the least. Comments like 'wow' and 'I can't wait to get my hands on that!' being just two of the first customer reactions...
More information on the A49 will follow soon.
