Cambridge Audio NP30 Review

Tech2
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. We are sure the navigation will be much easier and faster with the UuVol app and many of the concerns will be addressed.

Expert Review

PC Advisor
22 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Releasing the sound of music from your ripped album collection is the role of the Cambridge Audio NP30 . It’s a compact hi-fi separates unit, smart enough to sit alongside a CD player in the lounge, a link between music files sat on a NAS drive or PC and a full stereo system.

Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30 review

Pocket Lint
21 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Probably not, and though streaming lossless files (in 24-bit/96kHz studio quality on the NP30, no less) around a home won't be high on most people’s list, compatibility with uncompressed digital music could become increasingly important.
  • Pros: Lossless music streaming, file compatibility, UuVol App design, BBC iPlayer Radio
  • Cons: UuVol App frequently loses connection to NP30 & UPnP device, lacks Apple AirPlay and Spotify, poor remote, slow start-up, no Android app

Musikkserver for lydentusiasten

komputer.no
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. Forskjellen ligger i at designet og betjeningen er mer som på et hifi-produkt. Du kan også bruke den store fjernkontrollen som følger med. Denne er bra når hele systemet er satt opp.
  • Pros: Flott bygd, høy kvalitet, God lydkvalitet
  • Cons: En del begrensninger

Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30: attraktiver Musik-Streamer im Test

CNET
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
