Safety guidelines
9. Power sources
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Only connect the appliance to a power supply of the type described in
the operating instructions or as marked on the appliance.
This product is designed and manufactured to meet strict quality
and safety standards. However, you should be aware of the following
installation and operation precautions:
10. Power-cord protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying
particular attention to cords and plugs, and the point where they exit
from the appliance.
1.Take heed of warnings and instructions
You should read all the safety and operating instructions before
operating this appliance. Retain this handbook for future reference
and adhere to all warnings in the handbook or on the appliance.
11. Grounding
2. Water and moisture
Ensure that the grounding means of the appliance is not defeated.
The presence of electricity near water can be dangerous. Do not use
the appliance near water – for example next to a bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool, etc.
12. Power lines
3. Object or liquid entry
13. Non-use periods
Take care that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the
enclosure through any openings. Liquid filled objects such as vases
should not be placed on the equipment.
If the unit has a standby function, a small amount of current will
continue to flow into the equipment in this mode. Unplug the power
cord of the appliance from the outlet if left unused for a long period
of time.
Locate any outdoor antenna/aerial away from power lines.
4.Ventilation
14. Abnormal smell
Do not place the equipment on a bed, sofa, rug or similar soft surface,
or in an enclosed bookcase or cabinet, since ventilation may be
impeded. We recommend a minimum distance of 50mm (2 inches)
around the sides and top of the appliance to provide adequate
ventilation.
If an abnormal smell or smoke is detected from the appliance, turn
the power off immediately and unplug the unit from the wall outlet.
Contact your dealer immediately.
15. Servicing
5. Heat
You should not attempt to service the appliance beyond that
described in this handbook. All other servicing should be referred to
qualified service personnel.
Locate the appliance away from naked flames or heat producing
equipment such as radiators, stoves or other appliances (including
amplifiers) that produce heat.
16. Damage requiring service
6. Climate
The appliance has been designed for use in moderate climates.
The appliance should be serviced by qualified service personnel
when:
7. Racks and stands
A.
the power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged, or
B.
objects have fallen, or liquid has spilled into the appliance, or
C.
the appliance has been exposed to rain, or
D.
the appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a
marked change in performance, or
E.
the appliance has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
Only use a rack or stand that is recommended for use with audio
equipment. If the equipment is on a portable rack it should be moved
with great care, to avoid overturning the combination.
8. Cleaning
Unplug the unit from the mains supply before cleaning.
The case should normally only require a wipe with a soft, damp, lintfree cloth. Do not use paint thinners or other chemical solvents for
cleaning.
SAFETY COMPLIANCE
This product has been designed to meet the EN60065 international
electrical safety standard.
We do not advise the use of furniture cleaning sprays or polishes as
they can cause indelible white marks if the unit is subsequently wiped
with a damp cloth.

Safety guidelines are set out on the following page of this handbook.
Many of these items are common sense precautions, but for your own
safety, and to ensure that you do not damage the unit, we strongly
recommend that you read them. This is a class 1 product and requires

DIGITAL TO ANALOGUE CONVERSION
The FMJ CD33 incorporates the latest audio up-sampling technology
to convert the 44.1kHz data from the CD up to 192kHz in 24-bit
precision using the Analog Devices AD1896 sample rate converter.
The 192kHz audio data is converted into the analogue domain using
four Wolfson Micro WM8740 24-bit stereo DACs. Left and right
output channels are made using two stereo DAC chips per channel,
both operating in dual mono configuration. The resulting four mono
signals (two for each channel) are summed together to help improve
dynamic range, linearity and therefore distortion.
Due to the higher sample rates, the digital filters roll off less
aggressively than for standard DACs, and the analogue filters have a
wider bandwidth resulting in less phase distortion, particularly for the
higher frequencies.

CONNECTING TO A POWER SUPPLY
Always place the CD player on a level, firm surface. Placing your
player on a set of dedicated isolation feet will isolate the unit from
its surroundings as well as absorbing the vibrations created within the
player itself. You will generally hear some sonic improvements, which
makes this an extremely cost-effective upgrade.
WRONG PLUG?
Check that the plug supplied with the unit fits your supply and that
your mains supply voltage agrees with the voltage setting (120V or
230V) indicated on the rear panel of the unit.
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different, consult your
Arcam dealer or Arcam Customer Support on +44 (0)1223 203203.
CONNECTING TO OTHER EQUIPMENT
MAINS LEAD
INTERCONNECT CABLES
Interconnecting cables are not supplied with this CD player. We
recommend high quality cables as inferior quality cables will degrade
the sound quality of your system. Please contact your Arcam dealer for
details of suitable cables.
The appliance is normally supplied with a moulded mains plug already
fitted to the lead. If for any reason the plug needs to be removed, it
must be disposed of immediately and securely, as it is a potential shock
hazard when inserted into the mains socket. Should you require a new
mains lead, contact your Arcam dealer.
AUDIO OUTPUTS
PLUGGING IN
Connect these to your amplifier’s CD or any other line-level input
using suitable high quality interconnect cables. Ensure that the left and
right audio outputs from the CD player are connected to the same left
and right inputs on your amplifier.
Push the plug (IEC line socket) of the power cable supplied with the
unit into the socket (POWER INLET) in the back of the unit. Make sure
it is pushed in firmly.
Put the plug on the other end of the cable into your power supply
socket and switch the socket on.
The second set of sockets can be used to connect to a second
amplifier set up for multi-room use.
COAXIAL DIGITAL OUTPUT
Use this socket if you are using a separate digital to analogue converter
(DAC) or digital recorder. Connect to the DAC or recorder’s digital
input using a suitable 75Ω screened cable.
CAUTION: Never connect the digital output socket to a
conventional audio input.
OPTICAL DIGITAL OUTPUT
Use this socket if you are using a separate DAC or digital recorder
with an optical connection. Connect using a suitable optical cable.
REMOTE INPUT CONNECTION
It is not necessary to make any connection to this socket in normal
use. This connection is for ease of installation to multi-room remote
control systems and is suitable for modulated IR commands. Contact
your multi-room installer for more information.

The FMJ CD player is a digital audio device which has been designed
to very high standards of electromagnetic compatibility. CD players
generate, and can radiate RF (radio frequency) energy. In some cases
this can cause interference with FM and AM radio reception. If this is
the case, keep the CD player and its connecting cables as far from the
tuner and its aerials as possible. Connecting the CD player and the
tuner to different mains sockets can also help to reduce interference.
Arcam has a policy of continual improvement for its products. This
means that designs and specifications are subject to change without
notice.
