Looking for something to pair the Cambridge Edge NQ with?

The Cambridge Audio Edge W power amplifier is a great choice!

Sporting a 100W amplification with a Class XA design delivering a nice balanced, detailed signature.
Tight on the bass and smooth highs complements the Edge NQ nicely.

Introducing the Cambridge CX Series 2!

The all-new CXA61 and CXA81 integrated amplifiers build on the foundations laid (and the Awards won) by CXA60 and CXA80, but with a fresh and progressive perspective.

Featuring 60 watts (CXA61)/ 80 watts (CXA81), Bluetooth aptX HD built in, USB Audio Input accepting up to 32bit/384kHz & DSD 256 digital files from Mac or PC and ESS Sabre DAC to name a few.

There's also an integrated amplifier from the Edge Series, the Edge A.

If you can't afford the space for separates, consider the Edge A integrated amplifier with 100 watts amplifications, analog and digital inputs including USB Audio input supporting up to 32-bit 384kHz PCM, or up to DSD256 and bluetooth aptX HD.

Personally like the looks of the Edge series, sleek and bold. Signature is neutral, smooth and not fatiguing on the highs with good weight on the bass.

I have 2 Cambridge Audio Azur 840E preamps...old but well designed and fully balanced - one in silver and one in black.


Have a few other old CA units that got gutted and other things built in the cases too. Don't own any of the newer CX series but have friends who than the CXN V2.
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

anyone using CXA80 ? Is it possible to bi-amp with another power amp?

I jus got a 851W and it seems there’s problem when I try to bi-amp with CXA80
