Cambridge Audio Azur 851C


An incredibly capable performer, but a touch too clinical for our tastes

Beautifully clear and precise sound


Bought this a couple of weeks ago, and loving rediscovering my CD collection. A very clear and precise sound, great for classical music, especially solo piano and other solo instruments (Bach cello suites a revelation). Good for jazz too, but perhaps a...

Crystal clear sound


I had thought that my previous Phillips CD player (which eventually succumbed to old age) was good: now when I listen to my collection - predominantly classical and jazz - I can hear detail which had previously been hidden. On one track I can now...

Lovely sounding top end CD player


I received this from Richersounds two months ago and it is a lovely machine - matches my other CambridgevAudio azur components brilliantly and ives lovely sound via 840A amplifier and Castle speakers.

Detail and Finesse


Relatively this is an expensive bit of kit, but it does justify the cost. My interest is only classical and jazz, and on decent recordings - as an earlier poster said - the size of the sound stage and the amount of detail and resolution can make the...
