Arcam FMJ AVR-600 black
If you've been holding out on making that AV or hi-fi purchase purely for aesthetic reasons, then the announcement that Arcam is to release 17 of its FMJ components in a new black finish could be the news you've been waiting for...

While we'd never recommend that you let your purchasing decisions be based purely on style, a nod in the direction of some aesthetic appeal never goes amiss.

So it is that Arcam has followed the increasing trend – it's been happening for a while in truth – to black components. Some seventeen FMJ-branded pieces of kit, from £500-£3000 will now be available in black as well as silver.

Boasting 'world-class industrial design by ASA Designers', and to be fair we tend to like the cut of Arcam products' collective jib, the move has been triggered by the popularity of black screens and projectors.

Head on over to the Arcam website here to find out more about the range of products that are back in black.
