Arcam has announced the availability of its FMJ CD17-A18, an upgrade to its entry-level DiVA hi-fi system.
The FMJ A18 amplifier replaces the DiVA A70 and features 50 watts of continuous power per channel, logic-controlled pre-amp, resonance damped chassis, low-noise toroidal transformer, and remote control unit.
The FMJ CD17 CD player replaces the DiVA CD73 and features the latest Wolfson 8741 24-bit digital-analogue converters, ultra-precise clocking, EMC damping, and remote control unit.
All of this techno-speak is supposed to translate into cleaner, more detailed sound, with better dynamics, bass, and ambience. You can be the judge of that.
The amp costs £450, and the CD player £500, with both available in black or silver.
