Cambridge Azur 740C upsampling CD player - RRP $1,299.95 - Model: 740C - Colour: Black 

The 740C is the latest in Cambridge Audio`s Azur series of CD players. Using the upsampling technology present in the top-of-the-range 840C barnstormer, now married to dual Wolfson WM8740 24-bit DACs with a newly developed Bessel implementation of our proprietary virtual earth balanced filtering, the 740C is set to rejuvenate the mid price sector. The 740C incorporates the same 32-bit DSP as the 840C and upsamples to full 24-bit 384 kHz. Key to the abilities of the 740C is ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) an upsampling process developed in conjunction with Anagram Technologies of Switzerland. This system intelligently interpolates 16-bit/44.1 kHz CD (or other) audio data to 24-bit/384 kHz through the use of a 32-bit Analog Devices Black Fin DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for the very best sound quality. The ATF system applies sophisticated polynomial curve fitting interpolation and incorporates a time domain model which allows data buffering and re-clocking. This almost completely eradicates digital jitter.


  • Adaptive Time Filtering (ATF) asynchronous upsampling technology converting 16-bit 44.1 kHz CD data to 24-bit 384 kHz 
  • Two Wolfson WM8740 DACs in dual differential configuration separate DACs for left and right channels 
  • New virtual earth balanced Bessel anti-aliasing filters with minimum phase and constant group delay 
  • IR emitter and Control Bus In/Out for easy custom installation 
  • Navigator style Azur remote which also controls:o iPod track skip and volume functionso Azur amplifiers o Cambridge Audio`s Incognito keypads o Discrete commands for custom install use
  • Solid aluminium front panel plus an ultra rigid, acoustically dampened chassis for extremely low distortion

      Item: Yamaha CD-S1000 SACD Player
      Location: Doncaster 3108
      Price: 700
      Item Condition: Near New
      Reason for selling: Surplus to needs
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Hi there, I am selling a mint condition Yamaha CDS1000 SACD HDCD CD player. This is an Australian model with the black chassis and dark walnut trim on the side. The body / chassis / wood trim is in perfect condition, as is the motorised tray and everything else. The unit has been stored in the office for over a year. I just don’t use it enough, and I have already sold my SACD collection.
      This is still selling for $1899 at some local stores (before negotiation).
      I will entertain partial trade for SONOS and Canon EF L lenses (happy to pay cash on top depending on what you’re offering).
      Price is negotiable but I’m not giving it away. It is very pretty looking. I’ve paired with with Anthem Pre processor and power amps, with Paradigm Prestige speakers. Norah Jones or Eric Clapton sounds absolutely sensational on the setup.
      Pickup in Doncaster , though my preference is to bring it to your place for testing
      No shipping. No emails. Cash deal only.
