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: Ticks all the boxes, Plenty of power to spare even when playing from my MP3 player. Tuner and front jack for said MP3 player. Goes without saying the service from staff at R.S. Glasgow was excellent as usual. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
Summary: I route my TV sound through my HiFi, so as well as providing the amplifier for CD, turntable and cassette deck, this unit is in use every day for the telly. It was really easy to get set up. The built-in tuner works perfectly in our area, which is something of a "not-spot". The speaker units are a pair of Kef Cadenzas which I've owned for over 30 years, and this amp complements them perfectly. I like the clean and simple design - very understated!
Summary: My wife has always complained of the array of hi fi separates and their accompanying connecting wires. As a gesture of good will to the good lady, I decided to discard the existing ageing Sansui tuner and Marantz KI amp. Expecting a drop in quality from discarding these trusty servants,not a bit of it. The performance through my Tannoy speakers is fabulous both from the inbuilt Tuner and my KI Marantz CD player.
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......
