Arcam P49 two channel power amplifier

Arcam logo

The P49 power amplifier represents the pinnacle of Arcam’s audio engineering. Incorporating almost 40 years of learning, the P49 is a two channel power amplifier that will set new standards and provide class leading sound quality for the best possible reproduction of your music and movies.
Drawing on the many years of amplifier design experience at Arcam, the P49 uses the best quality components and engineering practice to produce a product that will give many years of musical pleasure and reliable service. With a class G amplifier, toroidal based power supply, acoustically damped chassis, paralleled transistor output stages and exceptionally low levels of distortion and noise the P49 is capable of reproducing music with all its original authority and detail. Rest assured you will be hearing the music just as the artist intended.

The P49 has been designed to leapfrog the competition 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 deliver with total control and finesse.

There have been great strides made in improving audio sources and loudspeakers in recent years and the time is right to match them in the field of amplifier design. This ground breaking amplifier is a must audition amplifier for music and movie lovers who understand that power is nothing without control. The P49 has been designed with system building flexibility in mind and can be configured as a traditional stereo power amp, or for use with the AV860 for a premium home cinema experience.

Delivers moving audio that fills the room with breathtaking detail & control!
