FMJ stands for Full Metal Jacket and was the flagship product line from Arcam when released in 2002.
An understated yet powerful Integrated amp that comes with the optional MM/MC selectable phono stage installed.
Overall in very good condition and an excellent deal at our asking price. We also have an Arcam FMJ series CD player currently available to go along with this piece.
The A32 continues the Arcam tradition of state-of-the-art audio components which combine exceptional sonic performance and beautiful style.
• 100wpc Integrated Current Feedback Amplifier
• Ultra wide band power amplifier
• Studio grade electronic volume control
• Menu driven advanced control system
• SDS resonance damped chassis
• Optional MM/MC phono stage
• Full remote control
• Matching P35 Power amplifier for Bi-amping
• Class leading sound quality
There is no question that the A32 set new standards for its class. It is very powerful, producing 100 watts per channel into 8 ohm speakers and 150 watts per channel into 4 ohms . More importantly, this power is delivered with extraordinary subtlety and control. Total harmonic distortion is minute, the dynamic range is huge and the A32 responds to transients in a way that will be the envy of competing models. The result is an amplifier that will enhance any high quality hi-fi system, providing an open and smooth, yet supremely detailed and dynamic sound.
Nevertheless, the appeal of the A32 is not solely its sonic performance and styling. This is not spartan design, and its performance is not achieved at the cost of flexibility or ease of use. The A32 is fully remote controlled and the included handset can also operate the matching FMJ CD player and radio tuners. It comes fitted with a very high quality turntable input suitable for either moving coil or moving magnet cartridges. The A32’s input sensitivity is adjustable for all inputs allowing volume levels to be equalised when switching between source components. It boasts tone controls that can be individually adjusted and remembered for each input. All of these variations, and many more, are easily accessed and controlled using the menu driven display. You can even write your own “welcome message” to greet you each time the A32 is switched on.
In addition, a matching 100 wpc power amplifier was available, which can be used to further enhance the performance of the A32. The P35 power amplifier could be purchased in either 2 channel or 3 channel versions to bi-amplify (or tri-amplify) suitable speaker systems or to provide amplification for multi-channel audio systems.
The A32 was designed and manufactured in the UK and available in silver or black finish."
From a review written by Doug Schneider from Soundstage.com:
"I never expected the rather diminutive and modest-looking Arcam FMJ A32 integrated amplifier to charge me up and get me excited the way it does. A quick glance at its understated appearance makes it look, well, rather ordinary. However, once I played music with it, I quickly realized that this rather shy-looking component is one of the finest audio values I’ve come across this year.
The A32 does nothing really wrong -- right down to its price. Its sound is clean, transparent, precise, and smooth. It also has stellar functionality with all kinds of little bells and whistles that modern-day consumers are asking for. I may be the type of audiophile who can eschew almost anything practical for the utmost in sound, but I’ll certainly miss the convenience offered here.
The Arcam FMJ A32 is a perfect blend of ergonomics, style and performance. And given this as well as its price, it's a terrific bargain."

WHO WE ARE
SkyFi Audio is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning, and reselling of select high-end audio equipment. We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks, no junk.
Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the HiFi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold. We are very selective about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American, and European built units.
Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support. If you are local and looking for new equipment from the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area.
We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers.
If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.
We prefer working through PayPal which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees if you purchase the item at the asking price. You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order, or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer.
If you are picking up an item we do not accept PayPal. You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer. If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, it will be returned.
TRADE IN POLICY
We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions. Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition, and the accessories that are included (such as the original box, remote, cables, manual, etc.). We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated surround processors, and mid-fi equipment of any type. We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to resell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning, and packaging the incoming equipment. If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user on your own.
SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)
We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market. Just drop us a note for a quote but be sure to include the condition and what is included.
HOW TO VISIT US
We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ. You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase. We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models. We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds. In essence, no tire kickers please.
If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase. You can call or text 201.879.0000 with any questions or to schedule an appointment. We can also arrange to install, calibrate, and tune the gear in your listening room if you are local to the area. This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers. It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
