Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD Blu-ray/Universal Player Reviewed

 

This $699 universal disc player supports Blu-ray, SACD, DVD-Audio, and HDCD playback. It does not, however, support 3D or streaming media. The 650BD is a well-built machine that's designed to excel with both music and movie playback....

Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD review

 

A multi-format universal disc player at an unbelievable price might be all some audiophiles need for Hi-Fi thrills

A huge feature count ; Remarkably timely sound ; Price

Tonally a little on the thin side ; Short on detail

Hi-res video and hi-res audio formats all in one easy to operate package

Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD - £400

 

The budget-priced player of the bunch, the 650BD is remarkably good value and holds its own admirably

Musical, precise, invloving and with great energy

Maybe a shade bright of neutral, imaging not the best

Universal in terms of compatibility and features and very nearly in terms of sound

Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD review

 

With a list of supported formats as long as your arm, the 650BD seems like a jack-of-all trades. But is it a master of them too?

Not the best Blu-ray player at the price, but certainly one of the most versatile

Best Blu-ray player £300+, Awards 2010. The Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD's sound, price and competitive performance make it one of the most capable d

Sturdily finished, extravagantly specified ; impressive cross-format performance

Not quite the best Blu-ray pictures £400 can buy

Best Blu-ray player £300+,Awards 2010. Offers a clear sonic improvement over its cheaper alternatives, and is especially superior with music

Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD

 

Boasting good looks, great sound and excellent video, the Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD may miss the media streaming of its rival, but it is one of the best Blu-ray players on the market.

Bomb-proof build ; Excellent video ; Stellar audio ; Fast playback speeds ; Plays virtually any disk

Upgrade to region-free costs AU$200 ; No media streaming ; Fiddly remote

If you're looking for a very good all-round player then the Cambridge Audio should be your first choice. It boasts excellent visuals and audio that gives both our outboard DAC and the Oppo BDP-83 a run for its money. However, if your tastes run to...

Cambridge Audio Azur 650BD

 

For those who want a universal disc player and flexible connectivity, without breaking the bank.

For the audio tests, I used SACD, with the 650BD connected via a Yamaha surround processor to my main NAIM amp. The lack of a dedicated stereo output for CD seems a strange omission given the ‘pure audio’ mode that shuts down the video circuitry and...
