  • Summary: The other Steve below who posted 3 stars in his April 29, 2012 review probably works for a store selling competitor's gear, but no Cambridge. Well, I also happen to own the Teac PD-H600 (for my office system) and frankly, as good as the TEAC is, it is NOWHERE of the same caliber as the 840C - not...

  • Summary: This is an excellent player that does some things really well. It has great drive, a big tuneful bass, big staging, and excellent all around dynamics. What it doesn't give me is lushness and delicacy that I hear from more expensive players such as the Denon DCD A100 (which I also own), Krell S350...

  • Summary: I was sold on the 840 C when I originally auditioned it over 15 months ago. A good way to audition a source is to bring your speakers and amps to the store (if you are not permitted to take the source home, to test it yourself).

  • Summary: I traded an all McCormack "deluxe" system for an all Cambridge Audio system (840C, 840A and 840W) and never looked back! The 840C and friends are nothing short of spectacular. But these units require up-market cables, power cords and Speakers to really strut their stuff!

  • Summary: This is marketed as the poor man's Roll's Royce: great at a good price. The Rover of CD players. As far as I am concerned it is shrill, bright, and indistinguishable from whatever Costco has on offer for $65. I would try the benchmark DAC coupled with a $65 player as transport.

Cambridge Audio Azur 840C Vs Emotiva ERC-1 CDP.

Sound Addict Boy, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: The good: 1) Superb build quality, it's built like a battle tank. 2) The disc tray is quiet & smooth, unlike the disc trays found in most DVD players. 3) Analogue Devices AD1955 24bit DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) with 384K over sampling. Too much DAC for 16bit 44.1Khz CD playback.

Outstanding Value!

  • Summary: It seem unusual to assert a CD player at this cost point ought to be considered an "outstanding value." In my younger years before my present career path I worked as a professional live performance sound engineer. Basically the guy in the back mixing sound for the show.

  • Summary: i reallize from all the anecdotal evidence that this cd player needs about a 200hour break in time.although somewhat constricted i,the sound stage was already wider than my previous player..the inner detail was very striking and clean.i can only assume that this will improve.
