A perfect entry level amplifier for someone who enjoys music
6 September 2013
Excerpt: The Cambridge Audio A1 amplifier is there entry level unit, offering great value for money and great quality to boot. Sharing much of the same technology and components as its bigger siblings this amplifier has helped me take my first step towards quality Hi-Fi separates. Perfect for cranking up the volume at parties my neighbours know just how good it makes my speakers sound too, also hooked up to a turntable and digital tuner I have subsequently bought has given me...
Excerpt: I've had this amplifier for over ten years, and it's still going strong. It's only a basic amplifier but is a great affordable starting point for anyone building a hi-fi system. I bought this amplifier when my dad donated his old "separates" to me - he was replacing his hi-fi system so he gave me his old amplifier, tuner, cassette player, and record deck.
Pros: Easy to use, good quality sound, hardwearing, classy and simple looking
Cons: Might be too basic for people with more complex needs
Excerpt: Anyone who has a Cambridge A1, or has experience of using one, will know exactly what I am talking about when I say that it is the perfect amp, it was for me anyway. What I was looking for when I wanted to purchase an amplifier was great quality, but at the same time, I didnt have the money to spend on an expensive one. The Cambridge A1 filled the gap between the two.
Excerpt: I've had this amplifier for over ten years, and it's still going strong. Mine looks just like the one in the Dooyoo photo, but if you google the model it looks a little different now, it's just been updated cosmetically over the years. It's the same basic amplifier and has the same features, making it a great starting point for anyone building a hi-fi system.
Excerpt: he Cambridge A1 has developed a reputation for itself and rightly so. It is the perfect amplifier for those who want to venture into the world of audiophile quality Hi-Fi separates but don't have the cash to splash out over £1000 on a mid-range setup. Yes, there are better amps available capable of far superior sound but they come at a price.
Pros: ery low price in comparison to other amps . Respectable sound for it's price point
Cons: Once you start using Hi - Fi separates the bug to upgrade WILL bite !
The perfect solution to those wanting a seperates Hi-Fi system without the cost

Excerpt: As a beginner in the world of Hi-Fi separates, the most recurring recommendation for an amplifier on my budget was the Cambridge Audio A1. Having now owned this amp for several months, I can wholeheartedly see why it is so popular for beginners or those on a budget. For this is an amp that performs admirably even with its entry-level price tag. Yes, you can buy bigger and better, but at this price range, it is easily the best Hi-Fi amp available.

Excerpt: I had an old Akia (90`s) separate until i spilt juice (beer) in it, it sounded really really good, very bassy and crisp, when i killed it since i already had the Cambridge Azure 540 r (which is a good system) in the living room i thought the A1 must be ok. Well personally it aint, it just sounds crap, i thought it would be great cos it weighs a ton. Then i couldnt believe it had no headphone socket which made my purchase even worse.Live and learn.

Excerpt: The greatest budget amplifier out there. For under £100 this is the perfect amplifier to start your life in the world of separates for those of the musically minded. The amp front comes with a volume control for . . . controlling the volume. It's a smooth volume wheel and in the five years of owning the product it hasn't worn or become sticky with grime as do some volume nobs - guitars especially.
