Cambridge Audio Azur 851E Preamplifier & 851W Stereo Power Amplifier Review


Review: Cambridge Audio's Azur 851E Preamp and 851W Stereo Power Amplifier aren't inexpensive, but unlike flagship level products from other marques, they're actually affordable. Audiophile Separates.

Musical Powerhouse

As a stereo amp this a good, as monoblocks this is


I have added a second and run them in bridged mono mode. The sound is transformed. It was good now it is breath taking. Control, finesse, everything.They do run hot and they do use electricity, but you cannot get something for nothing.

851W/851N/CXC & Tannoy Precision 6.4's


I have had this power Amp coming up a year now, along with the 851N and have recently just added the CA CXC and Tannoy Precision 6.4 speakers to the system. I am in love with the sound, with a good quality recording on show the system sounds divine....
