    Any other options to control the power on amplifier if my pre-amp doesn't have a 12v trigger out port?

    Basically I really want to buy a Cambridge Audio CXN V2 and have it be my sole pre-amp & network streaming device. I only stream and would use a single analog and digital in, so all my bases are covered. The only issue is that I don't want to have to manually turn my amplifier off and on all the...

    Question Speaker match for cambridge cxa81?

    Hi! I was wondering which floorstanding speakers between 2000 and 3000 eur (1690-2 536 gbp) are a good match with cambridge audio cxa81? Dont want the treble to become too bright, the mids not to have too much bass so the voices sound unatural. Thanks!

    Advice on Cambridge Audio Amps and Incognito System

    Hello, I am hoping someone can give me a steer here as I am a bit lost with this one. I have a nice new Cambridge Audio CA-XN v2 Streamer and some great DALI Oberon 5 speakers but I don't think I am getting the best out of them with my old Cambridge Audio 640A Azure Amp. But upgrading gives...

    Cambridge Audio CXA81 and Spendor A4

    Hi guys, my sound system is a combination of a CXA81 and Spendor A4. I purchased the set around 1,5 years back and used it almost daily ever since. (For listening to music but also for watching movies with my sound system or playing games.) I am playing my music mainly on Qobuz or if somethings...

    Budget Amplifier for Klipsch RP-8000F?

    After reading many positive reviews and having good experience with Klipsch speakers in the past, I am 99% certain I will buy a pair of the RP-8000F. Now it's just a question of what amplifier to pair it with. The problem here is budget. I live in Mexico and most amps are twice the price of...

    Question Fyne 501 + Cambridge Evo 150 or keep my Kef LS50Ws?

    Hi All, Issue: I have had the Kef LS50Ws mk1 for the last 2yrs and love them. I have them paired to Kef's 10b subwoofer which is a great pairing to support the LS50Ws with lower ranges. Where I live it is very difficult to find audio enthusiasts and even harder to find decent stores but just...

    Amp Dilemma

    I have a NAD 355BEE paired to Mezzo 6 floorstanders. In addition to the CD Player (also NAD). I was very happy with the way the combo sounded. The Mezzos are a little inclined towards the brighter side and this gets perfectly balanced by the Amp which tends to have a bias towards the warm. I...

    Down the Rabbit Hole...

    I appear to got a little bit lost in the plethora of DAC reviews and discussion on audiosciencereview.Com! I'm looking to upgrade my ageing Dacmagic 100, with something up to £500. Those guys seem to like the SMSL SU-9, SMSL M500 and Topping D30 Pro, but there's always the obvious choice of...

    Can you connect a Cambdridge Audio CXC to a CXN and the speakers to the CXN?

    I'm trying to setup my first Hi-Fi, I´m subscribed to Spotify, and have a CD collection. Does this configuration make sense? or do I need a CXA61 amplifier for example. Suggestions, comments are welcome, Thanks,

    Hegel or Cambridge audio

    Hi all I'm after some opinions from more experienced ears. I have been looking to upgrade my current entry level setup. I'm quite keen on getting a streamer/amp and have done a fair bit of research. I have been looking at the Hegel H95 and wondered which would be the better option compared to...

    Can't decide between the Rotel A12 and Cambridge Audio CXA60.

    Hey guys, been lurking here a while so I thought I'd finally make my presence known. I'm looking to buy either the A12 or the CXA60 but having a hard time deciding. I realise the A12 is a bit of a jack of all trades with its added USB input and Phono Stage features over the CXA60 but I'd like...
