Excerpt: Not every Blu-ray player in our test comes with internal storage for you to stash your media one, but the Cambridge Audio 751BD does. It also does double duty playing 3D Blu-rays, and its surround sound is superb. Of course, at a cool £800, this is not a budget option.
Excerpt: If I were building a Blu-ray player, I suspect it would look a lot like Cambridge Audio’s Azur 751BD. It would be 3D compatible (just in case), offer network media streaming for sound and vision (because frankly that’s essential) and it would be compatible with my treasured, but sadly not growing, collection of DVD-Audio and SACDs. It would also have a facia forged in the fires of Mount Doom. I would call it The One Facia.
Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD Upsampling Blu-ray Universal Player Review

Conclusion: I could continue talking about this player’s audio and video performance with various other media that I tested it with – but I think you get the idea. The Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is an extremely capable playback machine. From 2-channel music CDs to multi-channel, high rez SACDs and Blu-rays this player sailed through my barrage of tests with flying colours. Given its flexibility, performance and build quality the 751BD is worth every penny of its $1,249 price. I...
Excerpt: The Cambridge Audio 751BD isn't the cheapest Blu-ray player around but it does give you tank-like build quality along with plenty of features, DLNA streaming and it's also supplied with a Wi-Fi dongle.
Excerpt: Cambridge Audio now has a new Blu-ray player vying for your attention. The 751BD is twice the price of its cheaper 650BD sibling, but if it's twice as good, we could be in for a real treat. Despite not quite looking like the money's worth, the player feels weighty and has been engineered to a high standard. The chassis is new and has been acoustically damped to minimise the effects of external vibrations.
Pros: Very good 2D/3D Blu-ray pictures, fine DVD upscaling, authoritative sound, solid specification including two HDMI outputs
Cons: Appearance is a tad ordinary, bass can sound overbearing
Summary: The Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is a 3D-ready Blu-ray player aimed at audiophiles. It sounds heavenly with pretty much any disc you feed it, but also delivers fabulous hi-def video and can stream almost every type of media via a LAN or USB. It's undeniably fine, but expensive.
Pros: Superb audiovisual performance, Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio support, Solid media-streaming capability
Cons: No significant online content, Remote control lacks backlighting, Pricey
Summary: Trzeba się nagimnastykować, żeby skonfigurować Azura 751BD tak, by wycisnąć z niego wszystko, co potrafi. Warto jednak ponieść trud. Z wysokiej klasy systemem CA zabrzmi prawdziwie audiofilskim dźwiękiem i wyświetli obraz o kinowym, niemal analogowym charakterze. Jest to naprawdę uniwersalne multimedialne źródło A/V i w tej klasie, przynajmniej na razie, trudno będzie znaleźć godnych konkurentów.
