With nearly 30 years experience in high fidelity audio design, Arcam has gained a world-class reputation for audio performance. The new FMJ C31 pre amplifier represents the pinnacle of Arcam’s achievements in stereo playback systems. When partnered with the FMJ P1 monobloc power amplifiers, it represents the very best of Arcam’s quest for ultra-high quality music playback and delivers a wonderfully faithful reproduction of even the most demanding source material.
The design of the C31 features a simple, accurate and clean signal path. The reed relay input switching dispenses with the compromises of mechanical or conventional relay designs, resulting in switching with immeasurable noise and distortion. The studio grade electronic volume controls deliver precision variation of volume level whilst maintaining the subtle nuances of the music and delivering long-term reliability.
Connections are designed to be flexible with conventional unbalanced (for direct connection to power amplifiers and the purest fidelity), buffered unbalanced (for longer cable runs) and balanced output connections for use in electrically noisy environments. Inputs are wide ranging and include five line level inputs, two independent tape loops and an optional single stage MM/MC phono input .
