With staggering performance, the Cambridge Audio Azur range of integrated stereo amplifiers is designed to transport you to your favourite jazz bar, club, or wherever gets your heart racing.
Azur 851W Power Amplifier
The Azur 851W improves over its already highly respected predecessors in just about every way. At its heart is Cambridge Audio's innovative and proprietary Class XD system, with 12 output transistors per channel. Combining the best of Class A and Class AB and removing the downsides of both, Class XD amplification eliminates crossover distortion like a Class A amp, while offering the power efficiency of Class AB. Its performance has to be heard to be believed.
The 851W offers a massive 200W per channel into 8 Ohms in stereo configuration, but can also be run in bridged mono mode to output 500W RMS per amplifier used.
Azur 851A Integrated Class XD Amplifier
Our flagship integrated amplifier delivers power, finesse and astonishingly low distortion!
At its heart lies our own proprietary Class XD technology, which has been refined and enhanced since its inception in the 840 series, allowing even greater musical detail to be delivered to your speakers.
Capable of delivering an enormous 120 watts of high-quality power, it benefits from two audiophile-grade toroidal transformers: one for the sensitive preamp section and one for the power stages allowing the 851A to deliver its immense output without stress. This incredible speaker-taming amount of power can be precision-controlled with another innovation found in the 851A - the new fully balanced silicon gate volume control, which gives very fine adjustment across the volume range and highly accurate channel-balancing.
Because everyone's needs are different, the 851A offers two main types of connectivity: the more commonly found RCA/Phono inputs, plus two pairs of fully balanced XLR connections. Our matching 851C upsampling CD player also features both types of connection, allowing you to connect your system in the very highest quality possible.
Speaking of flexibility, you can even control your iPhone, iPad or iPod using the 851 Series remote control when they're docked in our matching iD100 digital dock.
The 851A offers the perfect combination of high performance, flexibility and ease of use. It's designed to take your listening experience to an entirely different level
651A Integrated Amplifier
Thanks to the explosion in digital music, for many people the personal computer has become more important than their towering CD collections. A direct USB audio connection allows you to simply plug your Mac or PC directly into the amplifier and with the addition of your chosen speakers, you'll instantly enjoy a whole world of digital music stored or streamed from your computer. Plug your PC into the 651A and you'll be amazed just how incredible it sounds.
Adding to the audiophile specifications are separate transformer taps for left & right channels, twin rectifiers and separate PSUs for dual-mono operation of the left and right power amplifiers. Meanwhile a high grade film type volume pot means the 651A also performs as well at low levels as at higher volumes
Azur 351A Integrated Amplifier
Taking cues from the award-winning 651A amplifier, this slimline yet powerful beauty features an array of components and design principles rarely seen in mid-end systems, let alone entry-level hi-fi. The 351A offers a wide range of inputs so you can connect and enhance all your entertainment devices. The USB connection is mated to an onboard Burr Brown DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) which automatically pulls a digital audio signal from your computer, bypassing its basic soundcard and taking care of the delicate digital to analogue conversion process inside the amplifier. So for the growing fans of iTunes and streaming services like Spotify, you can connect your computer to the 351A and use it as your primary audio source with CD quality results!
