Love this Cambridge Audio phono preamp!

  • Summary: I bought this item to replace an inexpensive phono preamp from another manufacturer. I've only had it a few days but can really tell the difference in the music I'm listening to. I can only describe it as becoming more open and rich. I do believe it's also brought out more bass. I was a little skeptical at first but I can honestly say it's a definite improvement in sound and worth the cost. It's compact size makes it easy to place anywhere in your system.

A conversational piece

  • Summary: I imagined that it would take a period of intense and devoted listening to hear how this pre-amp differs from the built-in amps of the earlier AVRs, but no, its brilliance revealed itself just seconds into 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot'. It picks up every nuance in a controlled and balance way. Truly something I will brag about to my other analog loving friends!
  • Pros: Great grounding / power circuit isolation No noise to speak of

Solid Pre Amp

E, Crutchfield
7 February 2014
  • Summary: This is a solid pre amp for the cost. My Onkyo receiver did not have a phono connection and after deciding to get back into vinyl I went looking for a solid pre amp option for my new turntable. Good sound quality and perfect size for my setup, I have just off to the side on my cabinet.
  • Pros: Easy setup, good size for space. good feel/components.
  • Cons: Lack of RCA cables for some.

Quality is one word to describe Azur 551r and is worth the $$$.

  • Summary: I let go my NAD for this one and was worried I would not be happy. I am so pleased to tell you I'm glad I made the move and I'm blown away with the channels separation and solid highs and base I get with this bad ass. NAD is not chopped liver, and I was very happy with it, especially the EARS. I owned Marantz, Elite, HK, NAD before and Cambridge is now my favorite receiver that thinks is an amplifier. Music is awesome and crisp.
