I love this stereo receiver
20 July 2014
Summary: I reviews it and i was in love with it. But this is what happened: the speaker terminal become loose and i ended up breaking it, then i sold it. the terminal allows banana plugs but i didnt see it anywhere. The sound is OK for the price, I think its very clear and raw lacking smoothness. The volume knob is weird and it is NOT smooth to touch like every other sound system. Lacks optical input. Mine received RADIO frequencies.
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!
Summary: The sound quality of Cambridge Audio products is excellent. It's true that my ears are not what they were fifty years ago, when I first became interested in "hi fi", as we called it then, but I can still hear a significant difference between the CA sound and my other equipment. However, I cannot give five stars because CA gear has too many annoyances, some minor and some major. A minor problem with the SR10 is its lack of ergonomics.
Summary: THIS CAMBRIDGE AMP HAS IT ALL..... IT HAS A GREAT FEEL TO IT......THE TUNER IS SPOT ON.... IT LOOK'S GREAT!!! AND JUST FEEL'S VERY WELL MADE AND MOST OF ALL THE SOUND ( WOW!!! ) YOU CAN FEEL RIGHT INTO THE MUSIC THE BASE IT IS TRULY AWESOME!!! THE DEPTH THAT MY KEF C7's GO NOW! IS TRULY MIND BLOWING AND WITH A PAIR OF AE-101'S...... PUNCHING VERY NICELY AS WELL......
Summary: I was recommended this amplifier by Robert to go with my DALI Zensor 3 speakers, its amazing, sounds fantastic compared to my previous Cambridge Audio A5 and well worth the money. Also offers more flexibility in a dedicated sub port if required which I don't, the DALI's give off a wonderful bass for my room size.
Summary: I purchased this Cambridge Receiver to replace a long in the tooth Denon Receiver which has been a wonderful work horse giving me many years of service,but a very mellow tone compared to the modern amplifiers,so I felt that it was time for a change.The sound on the Cambridge is much sharper and so far I am very pleased with my purchase and it is very good value..
