Summary: I was looking to upgrade my office system so that I could have more power and bought this. Sounded great at the audition room from where I made my purchase. But when I plugged it to my system and auditioned it against what I already had (a 16 watt qinpu a6000 mkII) I was shocked.

Summary: I was toying with the idea of replacing my trusty Roger's Studio 3s, but was swayed by reports that my old Quad 34/405-2 combination was probably the weak link, due to dated technology. After doing much research, I opted for this amplifier. Wow.

Summary: I purchased the Arcam FMJ integrated amplifier to up grade from Cambridge 650a. Matched with a Marantz 6004 cd player and Totem Mite speakers, I'm very satisfied with the improved quality achieved. The music is more refined and detailed, filling to entire room and making the most of the Mites.
Summary: What Hi Fi recommendation, to replace my Rega amp. Compared this with the Cambridge 651 which was a little bright and slightly harsh. So purchased the Arcam and put it into my old system at home which is a Rega Planar 3 and Rega Planet CD, and Monitor Audio R352s on Atacama stands, and the whole...
