Very Satisfied

Tim Medley, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: I've been using my Azur for almost a month with a Mac Mini via a USB 2.0 connection, an Airport Express via Toslink, and a Pioneer Kuro TV via Toslink, using the 851C's XLR outputs to connect to a NAD M3 integrated amp driving a pair of Martin Logan Vantages and a pair of Velodyne subwoofers.

Valve Sound Source Device

Frank H, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: The versatility of inputs on this DAC make it the obvious choice in today's market. Combined with a SONOS system, fed by a NAS makes your Audiophile rig a virtual JukeBox. Playing HiRes Flacs via CA's USB2 makes having a TT and the whole nine yards that goes with one history. The CD player is a bonus and makes this DAC mass marketable. This Cambridge Audio Azur 851C is a complement to your serious valve kit........

If you love music!!!

  • Summary: I replaced my 20 years old Arcam with this player, and i don't regret it. The detailing and precence is incredible. Close your eyes and the artist is there in your room. You can hook up other sources to it, and use the dac to get a better sound. After listening to it for a while, you will start to wonder why people listen to mp3 and other downloaded formats... It's as solid as it looks. Aluminium on all sides, with a great finish. Magnus.

Beats 840C hands down!

Ed H, Crutchfield
26 August 2012
  • Summary: A major improvement over the 840C which in itself was a superb CD player. It is the new DAC which does the trick. Three dimension effect is outstanding. The instruments actually sound like the live instrument...not canned. Voice separation is clear as a bell and even hard to record instruments...like the piano...have even-ness up and down the frequency range...no "hot spots".
  • Pros: Clarity, separation, 3 dimensional, great even-ness up and down the frequency range
  • Cons: none so far

  • Summary: Nu har jag haft den i en vecka och lyssnat ordentligt. Mycket ren, detaljerad och dynamisk spelare med många ingångar som bonus! Den har en oerhörd fin upplösning samt fint perspektiv och kropp. Bättre än Bladelius Syn!

  • Summary: Synnerligen välspelande, välutrustad och välbyggd kombinerad Dac- och Cd-spelare. Dac:en är inte identisk med Dac Magic+ utan håller överraskande nog med tanke på priset, en något högre standard. Hög detaljupplösning och neutral till sin karaktär. Betyget är givetvis satt i förhållande till priset. Troligtvis en "keeper" även vid framtida uppgraderingar p.g.a sin flexibilitet.
