Cambridge Audio Azur 640R review

 

Big, exciting sound, but lacking high-def audio decoding

Looks, build, spec, price ; exciting, up-and-at-’em sound

Overlooks fine detail ; some treble concerns ; limited spec is an issue at this price

This is the best Cambridge Audio multichannel receiver we’ve heard – however, it’s up against stiff competition these days

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R review

 

The best things in life are worth the wait

Power output ; Sound performance ; Build quality

No HDMI upconversion or RoomEQ

It may not have some of the features of its rivals, but it more than makes up for it in terms of quality

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R

 

The Azur 640R is the latest addition to the Cambridge Audio line-up and marks the brand's first entry into the 7.1-channel surround sound arena. Sold exclusively through Richer Sounds, the Azur 640R sports a sleek brushed-metal front panel

Excellent soundtrack performance, Three HDMI inputs

Expensive

Performance and connectivity are highly impressive, but you pay a high price

Cambridge 540Dv2 and 640R

 

Receivers are not my favourite piece of equipment to review. Having to heft my unfathomly heavy stereo rack around to gain access and then disconnect all the speakers is something that always riles me. Though, today the frown did not last long. The...

This combo is pretty much the complete package. Not only do the components look a million bucks, but both sonically and visually this combo is the match of anything I've seen under $3K.

Cambridge Audio Azur 640R

 

Cambridge Audio's Azur 640R can't claim a full spec of features - but few other receivers offer the same refreshingly simple operation and startlingly impressive performance at this price.

Competitive price; immaculate build; ease of use; bold, dynamic performance

Limited set-up; no automatic calibration; lacks fine detail
