Arcam’s statement-level components comprise its Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) line, whose chassis are built of Arcam’s trilaminate Acousteel, said to damp mechanical resonance. Although the FMJ DV29 looks very similar to Arcam’s other DVD and CD players, it seems to have a more substantial build quality and better cosmetics. Its sleek lines, simple yet stylish, definitely mark it as an Arcam product -- not a bad thing.
The FMJ DV29 can output analog video via its composite, S-video, component, and SCART jacks. The HDMI interface will output up to eight channels of 24-bit/192kHz audio and interlaced video, which few players do, and lets users take advantage of the high-quality deinterlacing built into outboard video scalers. There are optical and coaxial digital audio inputs and 5.1-channel analog audio outputs, and an additional set of analog stereo outputs. There are also RS-232 and remote-control inputs and a removable IEC power cord.
The FMJ DV29’s specifications are impressive. It has six 12-bit/216MHz Analog Devices video DACs and a Zoran Vaddis 5 processor with per-pixel motion-adaptive progressive scan. On the audio side are 24/192 Wolfson WM8740 DACs and a 32-bit Zoran DSP chip. There is built-in audio decoding for Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS, and HDCD. The FMJ DV29 will play back DVD-V, DVD-A, CD, VCD, and SVCD discs, as well as CDs containing MP3, WMA, JPEG, and Photo CD files.
