Utilising the best quality components and circuitry, alongside Arcam's nearly 40 years of engineering feats and awards, the Arcam C49 Pre-Amplifier is the absolute pinnacle in the successful Arcam lineup. Producing unmatched sound quality thanks to its audiophile-grade circuitry and components, the C49 Preamp has been labelled a ground-breaking must have for anyone serious about their music and audio fidelity.

The Arcam isn't packed with a million never-to-be-used features, but that's a good thing. Your money is going towards the components and build quality that counts in a preamplifier. Arcam has built the C49 with system building in mind. The "Ultimate" system, as Arcam describes it, would be the FMJ C49 alongside 6 bridged FMJ P49 Power Amplifiers, effectively enabling the tri-amping of speakers.

The C49 preamp is focused on reproducing audio as it was intended, in fact, better than it was intended!
