Arcam FMJ P38 stereo power amplifier

Sorry, This product is no longer available



The 105W per channel Arcam P38 offers a truly breathtaking level of musical performance, as a result of over 30 years Arcam amplifier design expertise, and emerging new technologies which have been incorporated into the P-38. The fully discrete circuitry of this stereo power amplifier contains discrete transistors, resistors, capacitors and inductors, there are no sound quality compromising integrated circuits in sight. Wide bandwidth output is assured by the current feedback circuit topology, and DC coupling (no capacitors in the signal path) means that low frequency extension and grip is simply astounding.

One of the most important developments is the use of Sanken output transistors which incorporate their own thermal tracking feedback sensors, so that when a large transient in the music occurs, the transistor warms up, but the bias is adjusted to compensate so that the distortion performance is maintained at a minimum. The massive toroidal transformer, independently rectified and smoothed DC rails per stereo channel minimise noise and hum for a clearer soundstage and deeper stereo image. All pre-amplifier stages have their own dedicated regulated power supplies for low noise performance. To bi-amp your existing speakers or to create a purist pre power combination with the C31 preamplifier, this stereo power amplifier makes a musical and technical case for itself.

In order to achieve the highest possible performance from this FMJ product, we thoroughly recommend you ask us to calibrate and install this product for you in the comfort of your home
