Arcam’s A49 integrated amplifier represents the pinnacle of Arcam’s audio engineering. They set out to incorporate everything they have learnt over 40 years to deliver an amplifier that will set new standards and provide a sound quality for the best possible reproduction of your music.

With a class G amplifier, toroidal power supply, acoustically damped chassis, paralleled transistor output stages and exceptionally low levels of distortion and noise the A49 is capable of reproducing music with all its original authority and detail. The A49 features dual mono volume controls and a balanced signal path all the way though the product.

The A49 has been designed to surpass all other amplifiers with a massive 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 400 into 4 ohms. It delivers 50 watts in pure class A mode while allowing for huge extra power reserves from our latest generation class G topology that is both clever and efficient. During normal operation, distortion is measured in less than one part per million so that this massive power is delivered with total control and finesse.
