Cambridge Audio 751BD Universal 3D Blu-ray Player Preview


We're sure the Cambridge Audio 751BD Universal 3D Blu-ray player is going to find an audience. Compared to some of the "high end" players that have hit the market, the 751BD is a solid offering.

We're sure this player is going to find an audience. While it does share some technology with players less than half its MSRP, there do seem to be plenty of upgrades (mostly on the audio, chassis, and power supply side) from the competition. The price...

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD Blu-ray Universal Player Reviewed


While Oppo's players are the talk of the town when it comes to universal players, Andrew Robinson believes that the Cambridge Audio Azur 751 BD Blu-ray player more than gives Oppo a run for its money.

I'll get right to it: the Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD Blu-ray Universal Disc Player is brilliant. Even though its retail price of $1,249 may seem a bit high, in my eyes, it is worth every penny, for I don't view the 751BD's asking price as anything...

The first universal 3D Blu-ray player from Cambridge Audio

Excellent hi-def video performance ; Reference-grade audio ; Comprehensive media file support

Lacklustre net-connected content ; Remote isn't backlit

Cambridge Audio 751BD review


If I were building a Blu-ray player, I suspect it would look a lot like Cambridge Audio's Azur 751BD. It would be 3D compatible (just in case), offer network media streaming for sound and vision (because frankly that's essential) and it would be...

Excellent hi-def video performance; reference-grade audio; comprehensive media file support

Lacklustre net-connected content; remote isn’t backlit

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD


With stunning build quality and performance, Cambridge Audio's first 3D Blu-ray deck easily justifies its hefty price tag

Near flawless picture and sound ; Excellent build quality ; Media streaming and extensive format support

Expensive ; Poor web content ; Remote needs tweaking

All things considered, Cambridge Audio has done a top-notch job with the 751BD. It’s a fantastic Blu-ray player, boasting sublime, rigid build quality that lays the groundwork for a sensational picture and sound performance. There’s also a generous...

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD review


The Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is a 3D-ready Blu-ray player aimed at audiophiles. It sounds heavenly with pretty much any disc you feed it, but also delivers fabulous hi-def video and can stream almost every type of media via a LAN or USB. It's...

Superb audiovisual performance ; Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio support ; Solid media-streaming capability

No significant online content ; Remote control lacks backlighting ; Pricey

The Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is a highly desirable, multi-talented player. Whether you favour Blu-rays, DVDs, CDs or streaming media, it won't disappoint.

Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD


For those looking to leap from a budget Blu-ray deck to the next level, the 751BD is a great option

Very good 2D/3D Blu-ray pictures; fine DVD upscaling; authoritative sound; solid specification including two HDMI outputs

Appearance is a tad ordinary; bass can sound overbearing

European HT Universal Player 2011-2012 - Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD


Look once, look twice. You are not mistaken, for the Cambridge 751BD universal player really does provide a one-stop platform to play all CD, DVD, SACD, DVD-A and Blu-ray discs, including 3D, for just €1300. Its core processor will decode all Dolby and...

Cambridge Audio 751BD


Not every Blu-ray player in our test comes with internal storage for you to stash your media one, but the Cambridge Audio 751BD does. It also does double duty playing 3D Blu-rays, and its surround sound is superb. Of course, at a cool £800, this is not...

Anglophile audiophile attraction

Overall, there’s no question that the Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is a top-flight entertainer with a price to match. It’s on-line connectivity will pull in BD-Live content when required and play nice with media either on a drive or a Nas server. Some...
