Cambridge Audio G5

 

The Cambridge Audio G5 is a mid-size Bluetooth speaker. It's the right shape to carry around the house, if perhaps a little large to pack on those “hand-luggage only” weekend breaks away.

A capable wireless speaker, but a way off being best-in-class.

Cambridge Audio G5 review

 

There's a good chance you'll be won over by this wireless speaker's detailed and balanced sound...

Balanced sound ; Easily listenable ; Sleek design and well built

Dynamics and cohesion are bettered by rivals

The Cambridge Audio G5 is good; alone we have few complaints, it’s only against its competitors it loses a bit of ground

Cambridge Audio G5 review: Sleek and smart Bluetooth speaker

 

The Cambridge Audio G5 is a mid-size wireless speaker. It'll fit in a rucksack but certainly not a coat pocket, and the £229 price sits in the same middle ground. It's not cheap, but is also not so expensive you'll feel like you need to use the G5 as...

Classy looks and build, big & powerful sound, good battery life, penty of features

Conservative treble, can’t crank out sub bass

The Cambridge Audio G5 is one of the better mid-size wireless speakers, and while it’s no bargain basement product, it is a bit cheaper than the Bose SounkLink III, one of the G5’s closest rivals.

Cambridge Audio G5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The rather understated G5 feels like a quality product. The aluminium grill covers the whole front face without any embellishment, typical of Cambridge Audio's 'sound first' philosophy. But will this portable model live up to expectation?

great sound but midrange lacking

 

I bought one Ģ5 a couple of months ago and was told you could sync 2 together, so bought a second but they just won't sync together. Really cheesed off, thinking of taking them both into Richer Sounds in Bath to see if they can do it!? Ok they are a...

great sound

 

Fantastic sound and looks beautiful. I listen to every kind of music from dance house music to classical and this speaker has managed to deliver every time. Love it just want to get another now to pair them.

Cambridge Bluetooth Speaker

 

Sounds pretty decent for a small unit - turn it up and yes distortion rules but it's small and not going to fill a large room but I use for bedroom and garden and it's great for that. Looks great well finished and feels like a high quality of product....

G5 Bluetooth Speaker

 

This is my second G5 and the sound is fantastic. Both the bass and treble are great. The reason I took the first one back is the battery failed on the first unit and only lasted 10mins. Richer sounds was amazing and swapped for a new model. I'm back...
