A mail-pal of mine in UAE has just bought an FMJ DV27 after glowing recommendations from me and others. He noticed straight away that his CD replay speed was 5% fast. I checked mine and it's perfect 5 Minutes = 5 minutes. The dealer checked with Arcam and got a reply telling him that this was consistent with an incorrect crystal being fitted to the AV board due to the fact the crystals are hand fitted. The crystal for DVD is 24.756MHz, and the crystal for CD is 22.5792MHz. If the wrong one is fitted for the CD crystal, it will play back fast, with a 1 minute track playing in 55 seconds as described. An easy fix, a simple crystal/s replacement is on the audio board. It was almost certainly down to human error, Arcam are second to none is dealing with problems but it may be worth checking the CD replay speed of your FMJ-DV27's. Mark.
