Cambridge Audio Azur 540D V2 review


Sticks to the basics, but does them very well

Well built ; Easy to set up ; Sharp pictures ; Excellent audio

Weak component signals ; No DVD-A or SACD playback

A well built DVD-A deck boasting superb quality and value.


This player is leagues ahead of the sub-50 supermarket models you can get and so good that it brings a flavour of high-end AV performance at a very affordable price. The build quality is top-notch, DVD-A and CD playback are refined and the DVD-Video...

Excellent value, great picture and sound quality ; multiregional out of the box

No SACD playback ; built-in decoder won't do DTS ; handset is stylish but awkward
