the cambridge 640 amp is excellent. I demo'd several amps before buying it. I don't always put stock in reviews but you don't get awards and rave reviews from umpteen hi fi mags , here in the u.k , the U.S and europe by being duff, and that's exactly what the 640 got. Its a good amp for the money. The 540 is good too but try and find the extra £50 for the 640.

I'd go for the Cambridge Audio CD player as well. The CD5001 is a cracking bargain and a decent entry-level player but the 640C is substantially better in terms of resolution, soundstaging and tonal accuracy if you can afford to pay the extra.

I went for the 640C player which sounds good but I have noticed at lower volumes is quieter in the left hand speaker than the right. Is this normal?

Yes it is a problem. See http://whathifi.com/forums/t/6110.aspx[/quote]

Surely that thread concerns Cambridge Audio amps, not CD players.
