Whatever solution you use, there has to be an amplifier (integrated or pre+power), whether it's seperate or build in.

If you wish to keep your current CD and Tuner, then a replacement is necessary. To get advice on this, then more info is necessary ie. What was your out-going amp, what make is your CDP, Tuner and Speakers and what do you want to spend.

My old amplifier was a Cambridge Azur 640A and the CD player is the 640C the tuner is again a Cambridge DAB300.

I suppose i was wondering if something digital may be an alternative, but guess that an amp is a must whichever way I

choose to go

You haven't mentioned budget or speakers, but the new Rega Brio-R is one of the very best amps around in its price range. At a later date, the Rega Dac can be added, which again (imo) is the best in it's price range.

It is worth checking the cost of getting it repaired

The 640A retails at £350 at the moment. A repair job will probably cost you £50 to look at it, then depending on fault parts and labour on top. And don't forget to factor in courier back and too, if you don't live near a decent specialist. No idea what's wrong with your amp, but I'd be surprised if many faults could be sorted for less than £200.

As such you'd probably be better off getting something else. As mentioned, check out second hand, your money will go much further.
