Cambridge Audio Azur 851A


For scale and power, not to mention build and style, the Azur 851A is hard to beat

Solidly built, smartly turned out ; Clear display ; Array of inputs ; Big, powerful sound

Lacks organisation and poise when really pushed

But if it’s room-filling sound with impressive clarity, weight and bags of power, then the Cambridge Audio Azur 851A should be on your list.

Kampf der Emotionen


Das Testfeld umspannt einen relativ grossen Preisbereich und kann deshalb unterschiedlich grosse Freiräume der Entwickler umfassen. Sie alle scheinen Ohren zu haben und Klangphilosophien konsequent umzusetzen, ob sie in England, Deutschland oder...

Test av Cambridge Azur 851A


Hos Cambridge Audio handlar det om att återge ljudet så rent som möjligt. 851A är ett praktexempel på det.

När det gäller att återskapa musiken på renast möjliga sätt, och med bra kontroll över dynamiken, är detta en av klassens bästa.

Vi saknar lite temperament, och en och annan digitalingång hade inte varit att förakta.

Cambridge Audio Azur 851A– Рожденные эволюцией


Azur 851A внешне сложно отличить от предшественника 840A V2, но новая модель заметно прибавила во многих важных аспектах. Выходные каскады по-прежнему работают в фирменном классе XD, сочетающем высокую линейность класса A с эффективностью класса B....

огорчило Временами на средних частотах заметна излишняя стерильность.

Cambridge Audio Azur 851A


Het lijkt erop dat de deskundigen niet echt positief zijn over de Cambridge Audio Azur 851A, maar dat beeld kan zijn vertekend. De score is namelijk afgewaardeerd, omdat de Azur 851A al wat langer op de markt is. De Azur 851A heeft dus ooit een betere...

Power to spare


Bought this to go with the Cambridge Audio network streamer, and it pairs extremely well. Easy to use, and looks good too, uncluttered, and clear. Powers my floor standing speakers at all volumes, with ease.

Quite a beast of an Amp.


Sound very smooth & controlled. Excellent connectivity, but only has one tape loop, which just goes to prove you can't have everything. Such a solid piece of kit, I now have to go back a re-listen to my collection to hear all the things I have been...

cambridge audio 851A


Bought this amp a couple of weeks back , best purchase I have ever made , the team at richer sounds are so helpful , and the added 6 yr warranty is great for piece of mind , not that you need it due to the excellent build quality of cambridge audio amps

Just what I wanted


I went to Richer Sounds expecting to buy another amp.however after listening to my first choice it was too smooth with not enough detail.The next one I heard was very detailed but too bright. ThenI heard the Cambridge and fell in love it was both...

Brilliant but unreliable


Bought with an 851N (see my review because it's not very reliable either). Also run my turntable through it into MA Gold 300 speakers. Setup sounds very good to me, generally very pleased. However, volume control has lost its mind. Turning it changes...
