Clean sound with a great phono stage

Chris Hopkins "newcastle68", Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I've been using this unit for about 2 months. The unit that I purchased was a refurb and other than a small scratch on the volume knob it looks brand new (25% off was worth it to me). I use it with an old Thorens TD150 turntable and the Arcam rLink Wired Coaxial and Optical DAC for rSeries for my digital streaming of Pandora and Spotify (via optical). Speakers are some old Phase Technology 7T towers. This unit replaced some old Dynaco tube separates.

  • Summary: If you can find a better amplifier for under £1000 you're doing well because for me this one is almost perfect. Every kind of music sounds wonderful: open, detailed and exciting without being harsh or in your face. This is simply an amplifier that plays the music as it should sound, without smoothing it out or making it sound strident. I have a pair of classic Rogers LS35A speakers and it's a marriage made in musical heaven.

Trust your ears

Tythingrun, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I've read the previous review and have actually owned one of these amps for just over 12 months As a previous owner of the Arcam A60, Arcam Alpha and Arcam Delta 90 amps I think I qualify as having "Old ears" Although all those previous amps had tone controls I can honestly say I never used them other than the Delta's mono button if listening to a weak signal from a tuner.

NOT ONE FOR OLDER FOLK

Steve Clarke, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: If the Arcam FMJ A19 had been around some 30/40 years ago, then I would probably have said this amplifier was an absolute winner with superb clarity and depth of sound for the price. Jump forward to today and to my ears the A19 sounds flat, with dull top and bottom end which lacks excitement. That's because like me, most people will suffer from varying degrees of age related hearing loss, particularly in the upper register.

Punch, clarté, neutralité et finesse du son

Chapter, avis.son-video.com
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Petit préambule pour expliquer ma démarche et l' achat de l' Arcam A19. J' ai connu Arcam via le Solo Mini. Son-VIdéo conseillait de l' utiliser avec des Monitor Audio RX2. Je les ai donc achetées sur leur site. Et je n' ai pas regretté mon achat. Le son était meilleur et bien plus raffiné que mon ancienne mini-chaine Denon. Récemment, je viens d' acquérir des enceintes vintage BW DM4 qui ont un très beau médium comme les Monitor Audio RX2.

très bon choix

Seb50, avis.son-video.com
7 May 2013
  • Summary: Sans être un spécialiste audiophile, je suis plus que ravi d'être monté en gamme avec cet ampli. Quel changement par rapport à mon ancien DENON DRA 1000 ! Je ne me lasse pas de redécouvrir ma collection de CD avec des détails inaudibles jusqu'à lors et ce sans voir à pousser le volume. Le rendu est très harmonieux,raffiné et soyeux aussi bien dans les aigus que les basses.
