“what a revelation”

Written on: 25/11/2012

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2010

Having brought a Cambridge Audio DAB300 tuner I was very impressed by it's build quality and performance. It was this that spured on my decision to purchase the A5 and at the same time brought a Cambridge Audio CD5 to match.

I have the A5 running bi-wired to a pair of Celestion F30 floorstanders. The sound these produce is quite simply stunning. Bass & treble are well controled and defined. The A5 is caple of being bi-wired from its 8-post speaker output, has ample inputs and is not… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/05/2007 by mrdom87 (2 reviews written)

Overall the Cambridge Audio A5 is a fairly good deal new if you are in the market for a modestly featured amp at a good price, but if you can pick one up second hand I really recommend it, I couldn't resist (seeing as it was second hand and there was no warranty to worry about) taking a peek inside, everything in there looked fairly well put together with a decent sized toroidal transformer and a fairly good sized heat sink. Higher quality overall than I expected.
Bottom line, use it with some… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2007 by tbz2007 (1 review written)

There is no doubt, that for the money, this is a superb piece of kit. It gives you a punchy 60 Watts per channel at 8 ohms. And for only £119.99 in Richersounds, there is not much to complain about.
Treble is crystal clear, bass packs a punch, but its tight and well controlled. The 60 watts really fells like more power than it is.
Features 9/10... You have the treble, bass controls, source direct button, volume, input selector, power button, balance... what more do you need. A loudness button… Read Full Review

“Let me tell you one story: ”

Written on: 26/05/2005 by linuxoid (1 review written)

Let me tell you one story:
I bought one Cambridge Audio A5 Integrated Amplifier in 2000. Then in 2001 I faced a little problem - I had output of 220v on speakers (now I don't have them, heh).
I took them to Richer Sounds to be repaired, one week later they gave me a new amp...
So be careful, do not shake it too much!

(A new one has been working for 2 years without switching off - perfectly!)… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/12/2004 by CambridgeAudio89 (1 review written)

I am really impressed with my Cambridge Audio A5 Integrated Amplifier. When my father bought a sony amplifier I remember thinking how wonderful it was and how many things it could do to improve your listening experience. Then I bought my Cambridge Audio A5 Amplifier and I was amazed to find that this simple looking amplifier could produce such a brilliant sound. I am currently using it with a Cambridge Audio CD5 and some Gale Silver Monitors which I think is a good setup considering i got it… Read Full Review

Blobson's Response to CambridgeAudio89's Review

Written on: 29/01/2005

Totally agree, the Amp is simple & doesn't look like anything special. Plug it in though & it can handle anything with ease. Cambridge audio really don't mess around with their amps, high quality at such a low price. I previously had a Cambridge Audio A1(the original model) it lasted me 6 years & I really gave it a good pounding everyday! It never faulted & I expect this one to do the same.
