Review: Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30 Network Music Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
30 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Cambridge Audio is a British electronics maker with a long-running dedication to serious audio (minus the silly-expensive audiophile pricing) and a long-running commitment to quality digital playback. So, when the company first previewed a network music player in late 2010, it got my attention.

Cambridge Audio NP30 Review

7 December 2012
  • Summary: There are many shortcomings that we can point out on the peripheral values and most of them will be related to ergonomics or user interface, but the Cambridge Audio NP30 wins when it comes to the core – being able to deliver the next level of performance among the streaming media players.

Hi-Fi Choice
19 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Dynamically the sound seems slightly compressed and unexciting, while tonally there’s a slight subjective preference for the upper octaves, making the sound upfront and superficially exciting.

Strumieniowiec Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30

6 August 2013
  • Summary: Sonata NP30 jest udanym produktem przede wszystkim w sferze funkcjonalnej, choć nie bez drobnych ułomności (odczyt plików 24/88,2). Nie wypada krytykować braku trybu odczytu gapless, ponieważ podobne ograniczenie mają wszystkie amplitunery z funkcją DLNA oraz droższy Marantz NA7004.

Musikkserver for lydentusiasten

13 November 2011
  • Summary: Det gjør den kjente engelske hifi-produsenten Cambridge Audio nå noe med, og har lansert Sonata NP30, som både i form og finish minner om et tradisjonelt hifi-produkt. Men det er snakk om en musikkserver som via trådløst nettverk kan streame fra pc-en eller NAS-serveren din.
  • Pros: Flott bygd, høy kvalitet, God lydkvalitet
  • Cons: En del begrensninger

Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30: attraktiver Musik-Streamer im Test

2 September 2011
  • Summary: Der Sonata NP30 von Cambridge Audio ist einer der neusten Media-Streamer am Markt und glänzt mit hochwertiger Ausstattung, einer langen Feature-Liste und schickem Design. Unsere Kollegen von CNET in Australien haben getestet, ob die Audio-Qualität hält, was die Optik verspricht.
  • Pros: kompakt, Onboard-DAC, kabellos, einfach zu bedienende App, 24-Bit-Playback, exzellente Formatunterstützung
  • Cons: nicht ganz so "cool" wie diverse Konkurrenten, App braucht ziemlich, um Musik zu laden, braucht einen externen DAC für besten Klang, keine AirPlay-Unterstützung, LED-Display ist ein bisschen schwer abzulesen
