Cambridge CXA80 review


Impressive muscle, but the CXA80 doesn't quite woo us quite the way we wanted...

Excellent clarity and rich detail ; Powerful sound ; Weighty, muscular and solid presentation ; Sleek design and superb build

Superb value and performance


I am sure some people spend thousands of pounds on equipment but I found that purchasing the Cambridge amp and CD transport to play my collection through suits my living space and requirements adequately for now. I am still breaking in the speakers so...

A happy accident


Until recently, I had a Cambridge Audio Azur stereo amp. Unfortunately, I had a senior moment and spilt a soft drink into it. Robbed of one of my favourite pastimes ie listening to concerts streamed from the internet, I had to look around for a...
