Reviews and Problems with Cambridge Audio Azur 840C

20 July 2007
Summary: Bought in UK at reduced price £499. Bargain in my opinion so 5 stars.
Sound is very clear and transparent through speakers or phones. Deep bass, clear midrange, and slighly lifted/airy treble. It resolves the different instruments in the mix well. The sound is very neutral, which I liked.
Pros: Honest/neutral sound, upsampling, good LR and F-B depth, digital inputs
Summary: I hadn't intended to get this. I was offered it in trade for my HD-800s (plus cash), which, out of curiosity, I ended up agreeing to.
I hadn't great expectations as I'd heard some less than stellar comments about the DacMagic from people who had a lot of gear experience.
Pros: Great, un-coloured sound, plenty of options, solid built, doubles as a DAC, plenty of digital I/O, balanced output, fantastic DSP.
Cons: Some may find the sound a bit boring. Threatened by newer DACs so best value second-hand.
