I bought this Cambridge A5 amp second hand and faulty. Sent it to A.R.S. [i know], got it back after being breathed on by those that know how it should perform, [thanks Paul].I can honestly say this is the best amp i have ever owned, having owned Cyrus, Arcam and Sony QS it knocks them into a tin hat. I have never heard such depth, seperation, and downright musicality from a little black box, albeit a very well built one. If you are looking for a stormer at a very reasonable price, look no further,you can always send it back to the boys and ask them nicely to breath a bit of their magic on it, you will not be dissapointed. I am running a souped up cambridge D300SE cd player in analogue, it's "SUPERB" and i listen to all kinds of music from gut-wretching rock to Eva Cassidy to folk and brass. I LOVE THIS COMBO wired into a pair of Tannoy Mercury standmounts although it has been plumbed into a pair of Mission 752 Freedoms without any stress. If you see one grab it quick.
