Arcam is a well-established UK manufacturer of quality hifi components, based just outside of the world-famous University of Cambridge. The company began in 1976, founded by two music enthusiasts with a passion for electronics. The company was initially named Amplification & Recording Cambridge, before shorting to A&R Cambridge, and eventually to the snappier and more impacting name that we know today; 'ARCAM'.
Arcam's 40+ years of experience in designing and engineering quality hifi components, combined with their 20+ years of developing critically acclaimed home cinema products has enabled the company to sit as one of the most highly regarded home audio manufacturers in the world. This stretches from sound quality, to build quality with all of the desirable features in between.
Arcam claims that the secret to their success is simple; they're music lovers firsts and scientists second. While their development process is rigorous and uncompromising, the key philosophy is always to retain the best and purest sound possible at each price-point for each product. The current range of amplifiers and AV receivers, dubbed the FMJ series comprising of the A19, A29, A39 and A49 and AVR390, AVR850 with accompanying CDS27 CD Player/Network Streamer and UDP411 Blu-Ray player is one of the most popular system series at HifiGear.
