Summary: Nice amp with the exception of the volume control. When reducing the volume manually, the volume increases on its own. It has been repaired twice with the "updated" parts which included volume control and resistors. The problem has reappeared again. A bit aggravating .
Summary: Best bang-for-buck integrated amplifier My ears tend to be very sensitive to harsh sounds, so smooth, clear, and warm is .... Without getting into too much detail,. I love the sound. dynamic sound ., tight.
Summary: It was with great expectancy that I could unpack this Cambridge 840C - luckily I could borrow it from the shop and hand it in when it didn't meet my expectancies. I was looking for a good match for my Focal JMLab 918 Profile loudspeakers - the sound of my old Aura Evolution was too thin so I needed...
Summary: I'll start off with the main reason for this review: problem with the volume control. I am writing this because I have read on several forums that people have had varying issues with the volume on version 1, from losing one channel to not being able to turn it down to having it ramp up on it's own.
Summary: It is a high end sound with a budget price. I was not expecting nothing more than my Mark Levinson pre 22 and power 33H, but for me, Cambridge Audio 840A is at same level. Beautiful, clean, well defined and warm highs, open middles, and controlled bass. Balanced and transparent sound.
Summary: Cambridge Audio's 840a is a terrific value, offering near-high-end sound at a very competitive price. The amp delivers a transparent, open sound with ample power to manage difficult loads. The 840 "disappears," conveying the sound of the source without adding any coloration.
