Product Description

Azur 851A

Flagship Integrated class XD amplifier

The ultimate in amplification and built without compromise, the 851 is our finest integrated amplifier. It possesses incredible power, finesse and astonishingly low distortion. In its design we assessed every component for sonic excellence and revised, reviewed and optimised the signal path for minimal distortion. Thousands of hours were spent testing and tweaking, the result is an amplifier like you’ve never heard before.

SOUND QUALITY

Nothing prepares you for the sound quality of our 851A. Rated at 120 Watts per channel and built with a fastidious attention to detail, it presents your music with astounding depth and incredible clarity. The precision volume control provides remarkable stereo separation, while the overall effect is to give your music collection a new lease of life.

CONNECTIVITY

We built the 851A without sonic compromise, and that’s true of the connectivity too. Nine RCA inputs cater for regular analogue inputs, while for high end components there are two sets of balanced XLR inputs. We’ve added a pre-out for connecting to a subwoofer or power amp, while two sets of speaker terminals allow for bi-wiring or running additional speakers in a second location. Finally, Control Bus inputs allow the linking of compatible Cambridge Audio products for easy control from one remote.

CLASS XD + TWO TRANSFORMERS

 

Rather than use Class A or Class AB amplifier designs, we developed a novel and unique new design called Class XD, which combines the sonic purity of Class A and the efficiency of Class AB for the best possible result. For more info on this patented technology clickhere.

The primary toroidal transformer provides unrestricted power to the dual mono amplification blocks. It’s a true audiophile transformer that will operate without distortion and with no buzz, interference or hum. While a second, smaller toroidal transformer takes care of pre-amplification processes. For more information on toroidal transformers and why we use them view the videos below.

HI-FI NEWS
GBAUGUST 2012

"Frankly, the feature set of the 851C and 851A is the stuff of high-end audio dreams, but packaged in sensibly-priced components... As is so often the case with products from Cambridge Audio, what you're getting is cutting-edge technology for substantially less than high-end prices... This Azur combo took me to places I haven't been for a long time!"

EUROPEAN IMAGING AND SOUND ASSOCIATION
PTAUGUST 2012

"So while the 851C DAC/player brings a quiet composure to the party, the 851A is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a muscular amp that grips the speakers and serves up tight, powerful and extended bass. In the 851C and 851A you’re getting cutting-edge technology for substantially less than high-end prices. Add the best speakers you can afford and this two-channel system will deliver a taste of hi-fi heaven."

HI-FI CHOICE
GBJUNE 2012

"They now compete with the very best in class when it comes to sound and are pretty much in a league of their own when it comes to features... This refined and revealing pair delivers a dynamic, clean and engaging result."

STEREOPHILE
USJANUARY 2015

"To this audiophile, the azur 851A represents a versatile and extraordinarily musical cornerstone on which to a build a truly enjoyable high-end system that can play all types of music with righteous aplomb for little cost"

WITCHDOCTOR
NZJANUARY 2013

WitchDoctor name the 851A&C as joint Product of the Year winners! "They seem to be the absolute class leaders at their respective price points. The build quality that just shouldn’t be possible for the money, and the huge feature sets are impressive enough, but with sound quality that is out of all proportion to their price tags, these components are on another level when it comes to value for money."

MUSIC EMOTION
NLDECEMBER 2012

"The Cambridge Audio engineers succeeded in the difficult task to improve the 840-models. Especially used in combination they form an impressive and balanced set-up. An A-grade result! Wonderful products at a very good price."
