Summary: Cut to the chase. Bought this for my wife's table top system, because she needs a CDP that can play WMA and MP3 as well as redbook. This CDP is nicely made! The case is quite sturdy; perfect if you want to put a headphone amp on top of it.
Pros: Built like a tank. More than decent sound.
Cons: Not many, at this price. Oh...it has a C7 power cord.
Topaz CD10: A Good Basic Unit with an Excellent Sound
7 February 2014
Summary: I've had my Cambridge Audio Topaz CD 10 for a couple of years now, and it has always performed flawlessly. I've never had any problems with skipping, dropouts, loading, or the like. I plan to return and modify this review if I ever do.

Summary: The only positive thing about this unit is that it sounds good when it does work. Will not play any disc completely without skipping. Even cd's new out of the case won't play uninterrupted.

Summary: I have only had this player for a few weeks but am very pleased with it. I purchased it from Crutchfield and am using it with a Pioneer Elite A-35R integrated amplifier. The fit and finish are superb and I love the small no-nonsense remote.
Summary: Returned the first one I bought because of problems with the Player.. It would produce blank spots ( No music ) when playing a CD.. Really annoying.. So, I bought the Azur model paid $200 more... Guess what ??? The drawer for the CD gets stuck on a continuous basis... Unbelievable Bad Quality...
Summary: The Cambridge Audio CD10 is a quality player with sound beyond the low price. The fit and finish is superb and pretty much unheard of in this price range. I have two stereo systems in my listening room and I bought this cd player as a replacement for an ancient Fisher AD-Z1 that is having some disc...
Pros: Quality Construction Good Looks Sounds Expensive
