  • Summary: Well... I'm not the type of guy writing reviews normally, but i feel I have to warn against this expensive (in Denmark) piece of equipment. Will not comment much on sound, it's okay (even fine for some bitrates af mps/AAC). Problem is getting sound out of this box...

Deceptive marketing

John, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: The Cambridge Audio marketing people write "music stored on computers and other hard drives inherently suffers from jitter". This is not true, or at least it is true in that *any* form of recorded music suffers from time-base errors. They also claim that they can remove jitter.

Not a Very Good network player

Cesar Fernandez, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: the app is not very friendly and it takes forever to do a search. I was able to see/find my music folders, but it took a lot more time than Sonos connect. Sound quality is better than sonos, but app and get it to the music on your sever/NAS it is too much of a pain to even consider owning NP30.

Poor DLNA Renderer implementation; does not play AAC streams

sergey, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: My main goal was to stream the output of my computer (PC) soundcard (using a DLNA server like Jamcast) or the output of foobar2000 player installed on my computer (using foo_upnp plugin) to the Hi-Fi system in the living room one floor down (wired connection using powerline adapters).

False advertising

A. W., Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: It says it supports Rhapsody but it doesn't. It took 2 months being shipped back and forth to the distributor to allegedly repair it and then it came back and didn't work at all. Then I got a new one and it still didn't support rhapsody.

The Best Network Music Player Available

sivic2011, Amazon
5 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a fantastic bit of kit and a great way to listen to all your digital music via one simple device. It looks great and sounds excellent, it's also very forgiving to low quality digital files.

Nice & easy network player

Felix, Amazon
30 June 2011
  • Summary: Recently got an NP30, and I have to say, I am very impressed with it! First time I have reviewed anything on Amazon, so lets keep it simple: Whats good? 1. Simple to set up: basic menu's, but you cant get lost in them, that's a real strength for me, unlike trying to change advanced settings on the...

Cambridge's Worst product

Steven A. Fisher, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: If you look at my other reviews, you'll see I'm a pretty positive guy. The Sonata NP-30 is the worst audio product that I have ever purchased. I don't usually buy products new to the marketplace. But this product intrigued me.

Cambridge Audio Sonata NP30

Cuony Marc, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Habe diese Gerät neu erworben. Für den Preis und für das was es bietet absolut zu teuer. Bin Seher enttäuscht von diesem Netzwerkplayer. Meine Erwartungen aus der Werbung waren offensichtlich zu hoch.

  • Excerpt: В этой ценовой категории конкурентов NP-30 просто нет.
  • Pros: - Неожиданно хороший звук даже на mp3 и wma с низким битрейтом. На lossless тоже хорошо, само собой. В целом звучание не напрягает, можно слушать часами. - К вай-фаю подключается без проблем, достаточно выбрать сеть и ввести ключ при первом включении, связь не теряет. - Хороший контрастный тексто...
  • Cons: - Нет перемотки. - Нет поддержки плэйлистов CUE, что в совокупности с предыдущим пунктом крайне неприятно, если у вас большинство музыки в формате image+cue. - Глючное приложение для андроид. Для windows вообще нет, что будет крайне обидно для владельцев дорогих планшетов на windows 8. Видимо у н...
