Arcam has a policy of continual improvement for its products. This
means that designs and specifications are subject to change without
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.
EC COUNTRIES -– These products have been designed to comply
with directive 89/336/EEC.

If an Arcam CD player is operated whilst the outer casing is removed,
invisible laser radiation could cause eye damage.
