  • 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 comparable by any stretch of the imagination. The 840C is one refined, amazing cd player.

  • Summary: Took my 840C in for repairs today, second time since new. This is a good sounding unit when working, I use the digital input for a Squeezbox, server system and sounds very good.4 stars for sound and flexability, 3 stars for quality issues.

Best CD player in its range and up to others 6 times its costs range

  • Summary: Impressive packaging and prompt delivery. Amazing CD Player. For Audiophile Buffs, This CD player was compared side by side auditioned against a Meridian G08 while new cost 5 times the price. Rarely anyone gets an opportunity to side by side compare these two Stellar CD players. The 840C is a overall better CD Player and having these Two Features on board the 840C Is Incredible 1.. It can be used as a D/A converter stand alone 2..

  • 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 and Marantz KI Pearl (players owned by friends).

  • Summary: Was in the market to replace and upgrade my CD player. It is as good a product as advertised. This is absolutely an upgrade for my old CD player. An outstanding product!

  • 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). About 13 hours ago I unpacked the 840 C from it's box, and connecting it all up. I put in some of my favourite CDs, and as expected, I couldn't get off my seat to do anything else.

  • 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! I use Shunyata power cords and Hydra 4 conditioner, AQ Balanced Columbia interconnects, AQ Gibraltar speaker cables and Thiel 3.7 speakers. I really can't imagine what another $20K would get me..

shrill,bright

  • 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. Benchmark has made pro stuff for years; Cambridge relies on bought and paid for reviews in Stereophile and the Absolute Sound, the 2 US audio bibles.

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. 4) Can also be used as an external DAC with other devices with digital audio out. 5) Available in black & aluminium grey. At least some color choice when compared to other brands.
