“Excellent system 8 years on!”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by indcraig (1 review written)

I have these set up with my Mordaunt Short Avant 906i's and have done for many years. An excellent analogue stereo amp. Considering I only play flac's and bitstream DTS and AC3 re-sampled through madflac, reclocker, lav and AC3 anyone claiming these speakers don't produce a good sound is nonsense. You simply haven't got everything tweaked to perfection. I've set up £1000+ 5.1, 7.1 media servers with superior digital output and while they obviously produce a more rounded and better sound… Read Full Review

“This amp properly matched with a good book shelf...”

Written on: 09/05/2011

This amp properly matched with a good book shelf speaker ( I'm using a pair of Mission 700's) sounds like a tube amp. Very difficult to push over the edge. Solid imaging deep soundstage, and plenty of power begs the question of diminishing returns when spending more. Great amp to do blind tests on audiophools who need to throw away money on over priced so called "high end" amps that sound different but no better… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2008 by ldb (1 review written)

It gives great sound quality. Change over from speaker to speaker is easy. The design is beautiful and I like the blue LED's. Quite expensive but it is a beautiful amp and has great sound quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2008 by phbenson (1 review written)

The Cambridge Audio Azur 540A has a bright sound compared to NAD. Tone controls hardly make any difference in sound(direct button disengaged) I kept trying different speakers and CD players in an attempt to control brightness Polk LSi7 and Pioneer Elite PD65 work pretty well… Read Full Review

“I bought the Cambridge 540A to go with Mission...”

Written on: 17/06/2007 by davidm450 (1 review written)

I bought the Cambridge 540A to go with Mission bookshelf speakers and was immediately impressed by the quality of the sound. I use it for listening to CD's in a normal home environment in a medium size room.
A few months ago I decided to upgrade to floor standing speakers and bought some KEF XQ5 which were on special offer. This relatively small amp powers them beautifully and the sound is amazing - it seems to match the KEF speakers very well, very clear treble and mid range and enough power… Read Full Review

You say you don't like the amp but don't explain why. What area of it's Sonic abilities don't you like and why?
