Drawing on the many years of amplifier design
experience at Arcam, this product uses the best quality
components and engineering practice to produce a
product that will give many years of musical pleasure
and reliable service.
With a class G amplifier, toroidal based power supply,
acoustically damped chassis and exceptionally low
levels of distortion and noise the A39 is capable of
reproducing music with all its original authority and
detail. Rest assured you will be hearing the music just as
the artist intended.
The A39 is designed to produce a level of performance
that will truly bring your music to life.
Placing the unit
Power
Interconnect cables
<< Place the amplifier on a level, firm surface, avoiding
direct sunlight and sources of heat or damp.
<< Do not place the A39 on top of a power amplifier or
other source of heat.
<< Do not place the amplifier in an enclosed space
such as a bookcase or closed cabinet unless there is
good provision for ventilation. The A39 is designed
to run warm during normal operation.
<< Do not place any other component or item on top
of the amplifier as this may obstruct airflow around
the heat-sink, causing the amplifier to run hot. (The
unit placed on top of the amplifier would become
hot, too.)
<< Make sure the remote-control receiver to the right
of the front panel display is unobstructed, otherwise
this will impair the use of the remote-control.
<< Do not place your record deck on top of this
unit. Record decks are very sensitive to the noise
generated by mains power supplies which will be
heard as a background ‘hum’ if the record deck is
too close.
<< The normal function of the unit may be disturbed
by strong electromagnetic interference. If this
occurs, simply reset the unit with the power button,
or move the unit to another location.
The amplifier is supplied with a moulded mains plug
already fitted to the lead. Check that the plug supplied
fits your supply – should you require a new mains lead,
please contact your Arcam dealer.
We recommend the use of high-quality screened cables
that are designed for the particular application. Other
cables will have different impedance characteristics
that will degrade the performance of your system (for
example, do not use cabling intended for video use to
carry audio signals). All cables should be kept as short as
is practically possible.
If your mains supply voltage or mains plug is different,
please contact your Arcam dealer immediately
Push the IEC plug end of the power cable into the power
socket on the back of the amplifier, making sure that it
is pushed in firmly. Plug the other end of the cable into
your mains socket and switch the socket on.

<< Do not make any connections to any amplifier while it is switched on. We recommend that your
amplifier is completely disconnected from the mains supply before starting.
<< Before switching your amplifier(s) on for the first time after connecting to speakers, please check all
connections thoroughly. Ensure that bare wires or cables are not touching each other or the amplifier’s
chassis (which could cause short circuits), and that you have connected positive (+) to positive and
negative (–) to negative. Be sure to check the wiring for both the amplifier and the speaker.
<< After making connections: switch the amplifier on, select a source signal, then gradually increase the
volume to the required listening level.
<< If you are unsure as to how your system should be connected, please contact your Arcam dealer who will
be happy to help you.

English
AMP Device Mode
If you are having trouble with your amplifier, check the
following items.
No sound
Sound cuts-out unexpectedly
Check the following:
<< The amplifier is switched on.
<< The A39 is not muted (i.e. MUTE (mute) is not
shown on the display panel; the power LED is
showing green, not orange or red).
<< The selected source going in to the A39 is
generating audio (e.g., if CD is selected, then the
CD is playing).
<< The speaker outputs on the A39 are active and the
appropriate speaker LED is showing green.
If the temperature of the internal heatsink rises above
a safe level, then a thermal cut-out inside the amplifier
operates to protect the unit and the protection system
temporarily removes power to the speakers. The system
will reset itself as the heatsink cools down.
<< With two pairs of low-impedance speakers
connected (6Ω or less), overloads are more likely.
Overloading the amplifier may cause it to shut
down because of overheating.
<< Note that, due to the high output voltage from some
CD players, it is possible to drive your amplifier
at full power even though the volume is not set at
maximum.
