Here at Fanthorpes, we believe that the Arcam A49 amplifier is acoustically the best two channel amplifier we have ever heard from Arcam. The amplifier completely eclipses the preformance of its predecessor.
The Arcam A49 amplifier is the company's largest and most powerful class G integrated. The A49 can deliver a massive 200 watts into a 8 ohm load, but because of the class G design it can deliver the first 50 watts as pure class 'A'. This means that there is none of the crossover distortion associated with class AB amplifiers.
The Arcam A49 amplifier has a moving magnet phono input as well as 6 RCA line level inputs. There are fixed and variable phono outputs. The Arcam A49 also has a pair of balanced xlr inputs, and a variable xlr balanced output. The Arcam A49 amplifier has two pair of very solid looking speaker terminals, so biwiring is possible. The amplifier is also capable of av pass through if you want to integrate it into an Arcam av system for example
