Pierwsze rażenie jest bardzo pozytywne , Jasny , otwarty - wychodzi do słuchacza , rytmiczny . Ale fortepian gra jak słaby keyboard , a trąbka brzęczy zamiast ciąć powietrze , Instrumenty dalekie od rzeczywistości . Brzmi ładnie ale tanio . jedynie wokale trzymają fason . (read more)

The Musical Fidelity A3 CD is a good value for money cd player and though I enjoy the music I do wonder if I could achieve a less bright treble. (read more)

Straight out of the box the first thing you notice is the weight the size and the build quality. Playing this machine turned out to be a dissapointment so a long burn in time recomended about a week should be more than enough. Rock and dance fans will love this player as I found it a bit bass heavy, play some jazz or classical and the player gets confussed I had to reach for the volume to turn it down a few times as the high notes can cause your teeth to grit. I found both the arcam and... (read more)

This player prouduces an airy sound that begs you listen more and try CDs that you may never have considered. If you are looking for a CD player and... (read more)

I use this A3 amplifier from Musical Fidelity with the matching a3 CD player. Very pleasing results through my BW 604 loudspeakers. With high quality recordings this combo sounds fantastic. The midrange and treble is stunning, however the bass is generally pleasing but not exactly in the same league as the mid and highs. That is not to say that the bass is not well formed. It is but it is slightly weak.

The Musical Fidelity A3 is the most complete amplifier I have heard for under £1000. Well balanced and not 'upfront'. I run a Linn LP12 turntable through it via a Musical Fidelity Pre-amp and it has warm edge to it. Not entirely transparent, but the feeling in the music is there. CD through it is good, though it could be my player (ARCAM Alpha)but I am saving up for the Musical Fidelity A3 CD to compliment it, as I tested it when I bought the amp and it sounded awesome. Hope this is... (read more)
