Arcam has achieved a global reputation for producing state of the art home cinema electronics that excel in both movie and music reproduction. Arcam have developed numerous world-class products for the AV market having been involved in home cinema since the mid nineties.

The Arcam FMJ AVR500 AV receiver is based on Arcam's all new high definition AV platform that was crafted in Cambridge, UK over three years of intensive research and development. The outstanding reception already given to the first two products using the platform, the AVR600 Receiver and AV888 Pre-Amp Processor, suggests that the Arcam FMJ AVR500 AV receiver will also set new world standards for audio quality in its price range.

The massive feature set provided by the bigger Arcam AVR600 is not required for every home cinema installation and so the Arcam FMJ AVR500 AV receiver is able to preserve the core performance of the AVR600 by deleting some of the less used connectivity. Removing the network card for Internet Radio, streaming and IP control capability has reduced construction complexity and cost. In addition the number of legacy video and audio outputs and multi-room connections has also been reduced recognising the move in many systems to predominantly digital connectivity.

The AVR500's seven-channel amplifier is rated at 100 watts (all channels driven) but its massive power supply ensures that it can drive even highly demanding loudspeakers without strain. Being fully equipped for the high definition world the Arcam FMJ AVR500 AV receiver decodes all the latest Dolby and DTS high definition audio standard with phenomenal precision.

The Arcam FMJ AVR500 AV receiver offers customers the highest level of Arcam performance and sound quality at a lower price by reducing the feature set and absolute power output. However, no compromise has been made in the essential ability of all Arcam AV electronics to produce a level of sound quality that will bring movies and music to life like no other manufacturer.
