Not for me
18 May 2013
Summary: I was looking for an all in one FM receiver to replace my tv sound. I also wanted an FM section for radio. I am strictly a 2 channel person, not into surround so I thought this would fit the bill. Overall it was ok. Sound and FM reception was decent,but it was just lacking something. It also had an annoying habit of the volume being set at a fairly high volume when you turned it on and not where you left it off.
Summary: My beloved 20+ year old Nak Reciever1 finally passed on. Believe me I tried to revive it with 2 visits to the electronics repair store and 300 dollars. RIP old buddy. So I needed a new reciever that would get WAF (wife acceptance factor). This cambridge fits the bill. Easy to use and sounds great. My wife said she likes the way it looks. This unit produces layers of music and lots of detail. So if your looking for alot of bang for your hard earned dollar.
Pros: Sounds great. Makes you want to pull out all your CD's and see what you've been missing!
Cons: Wish I had bought this before trying to repair my old reciever!
Excerpt: I bought this unit as companion to the Denon PMA2000 I currently owned - so I could use this amp to power my Yamaha NS-670s and the Denon to power my 690s. As it turns out - the sound from the Cambridge is more pleasing and I end up turning this unit up for the mid-high area - and keeping the Denon turned down to just fill in thebass. The only criticism I have is that the remote for the Topaz and the Azur 550 CD player do not work with each other...
Summary: Efficace et musical, cet ampli-tuner, sans être exceptionnel, remplit parfaitement son rôle. Côté écoute, il manque cependant de relief, tout est moyen, il arrive à être « bon moyen » : les voix sont un peu tassées, les basses sont "légèrement brouillon » sur les masses orchestrales, par exemple. Mais il ne déçoit pas du tout, surtout pour le prix, le rapport qualité/prix de ce Cambridge est excellent.
Excerpt: Super versterker, Nog maar een paar weken in bezit met de Dali concept 1. Heerlijk geluid. Toch min puntje. Slechte Fm ontvangst, niet dat ik het gebruik maar voor zo'n apparaat verwacht ik dat dat ook tip top in orde is.
