FMJ stands for Full Metal Jacket and was the flagship product line from Arcam when released in 2002.

An understated yet powerful Integrated amp that comes with the optional MM/MC selectable phono stage installed.

Overall in very good condition and an excellent deal at our asking price.  We also have an Arcam FMJ series CD player currently available to go along with this piece.

From Arcam:

The A32 continues the Arcam tradition of state-of-the-art audio components which combine exceptional sonic performance and beautiful style.

• 100wpc Integrated Current Feedback Amplifier
• Ultra wide band power amplifier
• Studio grade electronic volume control
• Menu driven advanced control system
• SDS resonance damped chassis
• Optional MM/MC phono stage
• Full remote control
• Matching P35 Power amplifier for Bi-amping
• Class leading sound quality

There is no question that the A32 set new standards for its class. It is very powerful, producing 100 watts per channel into 8 ohm speakers and 150 watts per channel into 4 ohms . More importantly, this power is delivered with extraordinary subtlety and control. Total harmonic distortion is minute, the dynamic range is huge and the A32 responds to transients in a way that will be the envy of competing models. The result is an amplifier that will enhance any high quality hi-fi system, providing an open and smooth, yet supremely detailed and dynamic sound.

Nevertheless, the appeal of the A32 is not solely its sonic performance and styling. This is not spartan design, and its performance is not achieved at the cost of flexibility or ease of use. The A32 is fully remote controlled and the included handset can also operate the matching FMJ CD player and radio tuners. It comes fitted with a very high quality turntable input suitable for either moving coil or moving magnet cartridges. The A32’s input sensitivity is adjustable for all inputs allowing volume levels to be equalised when switching between source components. It boasts tone controls that can be individually adjusted and remembered for each input. All of these variations, and many more, are easily accessed and controlled using the menu driven display. You can even write your own “welcome message” to greet you each time the A32 is switched on.

In addition, a matching 100 wpc power amplifier was available, which can be used to further enhance the performance of the A32. The P35 power amplifier could be purchased in either 2 channel or 3 channel versions to bi-amplify (or tri-amplify) suitable speaker systems or to provide amplification for multi-channel audio systems.

The A32 was designed and manufactured in the UK and available in silver or black finish."

From a review written by Doug Schneider from Soundstage.com:

"I never expected the rather diminutive and modest-looking Arcam FMJ A32 integrated amplifier to charge me up and get me excited the way it does. A quick glance at its understated appearance makes it look, well, rather ordinary. However, once I played music with it, I quickly realized that this rather shy-looking component is one of the finest audio values I’ve come across this year.

The A32 does nothing really wrong -- right down to its price. Its sound is clean, transparent, precise, and smooth. It also has stellar functionality with all kinds of little bells and whistles that modern-day consumers are asking for. I may be the type of audiophile who can eschew almost anything practical for the utmost in sound, but I’ll certainly miss the convenience offered here.

The Arcam FMJ A32 is a perfect blend of ergonomics, style and performance. And given this as well as its price, it's a terrific bargain."
