Arcam FMJ BDP100 Blu-ray Player

 

The fundamental purpose of an optical digital disc player is to play back optical digital discs. While that may be self-evidently redundant, there's a wide selection of players on the market that offer a numbing range of additional, gee-whiz features....

There’s no question that the Arcam FMJ BDP100 Blu-ray player isn’t loaded for bear when it comes to features. But some buyers choose such a player over the kitchen-sink variety for the same reason an audiophile will pay five figures for a bare-bones CD...

Arcam AVR400 / BDP100 review

 

The British brand's latest Blu-ray and home cinema proposition is all about warmth and accuracy

Fastidious build quality ; Distinctive analogue sound quality ; Fabulous dynamics ; Blu-ray and DVD picture quality

AVR lacks a second HDMI output ; No THX-certification ; BD player has uneven media file support

Arcam BDP100 and AVR400

 

A Blu-ray player and AV receiver pairing for movie and music connoisseurs with big budgets.

Exceptional picture and sound quality ; Rock solid build quality and stunning looks ; Networking and Internet radio support (AVR400)

No multichannel analogue outputs (BDP100) ; No 3D or networking support (BDP100) ; Slow disc loading and operational foibles (BDP100)

For buyers with big budgets who want the very best pictures and - more crucially - the best sound quality possible from a Blu-ray player and receiver, then this pairing is a wise investment. Blu-ray images are sensational, but the biggest advantage...

Much-improved thanks to the new firmware, but still not completely flawless

Terrific picture; fine sound in surround and stereo; backlit remote; some usability issues have been addressed

but not all; poor spec for the cash
