Cambridge Audio Azur 851W
When combined with the equally impressive 851E or 851D, the Cambridge Audio 851W power amplifier is quite simply the best sounding Cambridge Audio amplifier ever.
MASSIVE POWER FOR EFFORTLESS SOUND, WHATEVER THE SPEAKERS
Take a look at the figures and it soon becomes clear that, when it comes to power, the 851W isn't going to take any prisoners! With a genuine 200 watts per channel at 8 ohms the 851W has a cast iron grip on any speaker, no matter how difficult the load. With a 4 ohm load this figure increase to 350 watts per channel. Should you choose to use two 851Ws in bridged mono mode, these outputs increase to a jaw-dropping 500 (8 ohms) or 800 (4 ohms) watts per channel.
TWIN TOROIDAL TRANSFORMERS
At its heart, the 851W is powered by twin toroidal power supplies. Separate transformers for the power amplification and input ensure the audio performance is unaffected by large current requirements caused by powerful and dynamic music from current hungry speakers. What this means in terms of sound quality is deep, effortless bass with thunderous dynamics on tap.
TERRAPIN IMPEDANCE BUFFERING MODULES FOR ENHANCED DETAIL
Cambridge Audio's own Terrapin impedance buffering modules replace the more commonly used op-amps for a further leap in audio quality. Terrapin impedance buffering modules separate amplifier and signal impedance, delivering an even and consistent sound with enhanced separation and imaging.
UNIQUE CLASS-XD AMPLIFIER
What makes this amplifier extra special is the Class XD amplification. Technically speaking, this combines the best qualities of Class A amplification - smoothness and realism - with the best from Class AB - power and control, without the disadvantages inherent with both designs. What this means to the listener is a smooth, yet detailed sound quality with the ability to drive almost any speaker from its substantial power output.
For an amplifier with power to spare yet the finesse to impress, the Cambridge Audio 851W is in a league of its own.
Cambridge Audio Azur 851N
With years of network player experience, Cambridge has now created the ultimate player - the stunning Azur 851N.
PUTTING SOUND QUALITY FIRST
As Cambridge's range-topping network music payer you'd expect the Azur 851N to be pretty special under the lid, and that's exactly what it is! The highest quality sound comes from the use of audiophile quality components and tireless research and testing. As an 8-series design, the 851N uses a substantial toroidal power transformer at its centre. This enables clean, effortless power to be supplied to the other components, allowing them to give their best. High quality Analogue Devices AD1955 DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) are configured in dual-mono mode, ensuring maximum channel separation and precise sound-staging.
FULLY EQUIPPED FOR HIGH RESOLUTION AUDIO
At the heart of the 851N is a brand new Zander processor that facilitates 24-bit/192kHz file high resolution streaming from most methods - even Wi-Fi. On top of this, the 851N is compatible with a huge range of high resolution files, including ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis. The USB audio input also enables streaming of up to 24-bit/192kHz audio and even supports DSD streams from your computer. Originally designed for SACD players, DSD (Direct Stream Digital) encoded music files offer the same detailed, transparent sound as other high resolution file formats, giving you even greater choice of listening.
AFT2 UP-SAMPLING FOR THE ULTIMATE DETAIL AND LEAST JITTER
The Cambridge 851N improves sound quality still further with an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) up-sampling 'stretches' the music to give the highest resolution possible. Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll also notice enhanced depth of sound and a more natural quality without the "edge" that can afflict digital music. You'll hear every detail, including every deep breath, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real! AFT2 even aids native 24-bit/192kHz recordings with a faster sampling rate for even less jitter.

CONNECT TO INTERNET RADIO AND SPOTIFY CONNECT
In addition to supporting over 20,000, easy to access Internet radio stations, the Azur 851N is also compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world's most popular streaming service and the Azur 851N has Spotify Connect integrated into it. If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. Should you prefer other music services, the 851N also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer for radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.
AIRPLAY AND OPTIONAL BLUETOOTH
In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the 851N is also compatible with Apple's AirPlay streaming. Use it with your iPhone, iPad PC or Mac and wireless stream your iTunes library or other compatible music services. Connect up the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.
BUILT-IN DIGITAL PRE-AMP - JUST ADD ACTIVE SPEAKERS!
If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in digital pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analogue outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance via the Azur 851N.
INTUITIVE APP INTERFACE AND COLOUR DISPLAY
With a free Apple/Android app you have effortless control over the radio stations with the comfort of your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad or Android device. The app also seamlessly manages all your streaming content and is, in effect, a very user friendly way of bringing together and controlling all your digital sources. Boasting a new colour screen, it's now possible to display album art on the player. This makes it a pleasure to browse for albums and artists by whichever control system you use.
FULL METAL CASING WITH EXTENSIVE DAMPING
Using a full metal casing, with rounded edges, doesn't just look and feel good, it helps the sound, too. The case is rigid and well damped, meaning that it won't resonate unhelpfully. The thick aluminium front panel looks the part and also acts as a shield against electrical interference from sources such as dimmers and RF devices. All these details combine to create a network player that not only looks stylish but also offers exceptional resistance to both mechanical and electrical interference.
A first-rate performer in every respect, the flagship Cambridge Azur 851N network player is the audiophile's choice of streamer.
Monitor Audio Silver 10
'The Absolute Sound'.
Range-topping model for reference dynamics
If you like your music loud and proud then these are the speakers for you. With a bass reach that makes a separate subwoofer totally unnecessary, the Silver 10s do full justice to the most dynamic rock and full scale orchestras. The three-way design is suitable for large rooms although still easy-going about positioning. They also make awesome front speakers for a top quality home cinema system.
The best drivers in the business
Monitor Audio are renowned for their ability to make class-leading drivers and this is certainly the case with the Silver 10. The 8" bass cones and 4" mid-range unit feature distinctive RST (Rigid Surface Technology). Inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, the lightweight cone is made more rigid by the precise pattern of surface dimples. It helps make the mid-range sound natural and the bass taught and responsive. At the top end, Monitor Audio's gold dome tweeter with dome venting gives an expressive treble full of detail.
Attention to detail for the finest sound quality
As well as the high quality drive units, it's the attention to detail that really sets the Silver 10 apart. Inside the cabinet, Pureflow silver-plated OFC internal cable is used for the purest sound. Likewise, the crossovers feature premium grade polypropylene film capacitors for an open and transparent sound. There's also extensive internal bracing for ultra-low levels of cabinet distortion. Of course, none of this expensive design can be seen but it has a huge effect on the sound quality.
Superb finish, designed to match your decor
Available in a wide range of premium real wood veneers and high gloss finishes, the Silver 10 looks every bit as good as it sounds. A magnetically attached grille gives a clean appearance when removed - ideal for showing off those hi-tech drive units.
