FS: price reduced -Cambridge Audio Azur 851N Network Audio Player/ DAC/ preamplifier (Black)

Recommended Posts

Item: Cambridge Audio Azur 851N Network Audio Player (Black)
Location: Vic 3095
Price: 1500 (retailing about 2700) will  donate to SNA 
Item Condition: excellent
Reason for selling: reducing component count 
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

Offering my main streamer/dac for sale as aiming to reduce my components count. The azur 851n been a wonderful dac/streamer and is Cambridge Audio's flagship over the past several years as well as winning many awards and rightly so. It’s a nice sonic upgrade from its cxn models with what I would describe as a smooth and wider soundstage than the lower models. 
It has a vast selection of inputs and upsamples signals to 24-bit/384kHz as well as managing DSD64
Had my NAS connected up as well as Spotify and tidal steaming through with no issues. The Cambridge Audio app is not the best but does the job. 
This also acts as a preamp as well but I have not used that feature.
This has been well cared for with no scratches or marks visible and the remote is in excellent condition. 
Letting this go as I am trying to consolidate and looking into the all in one options including amp.

I've had mine for about 4 years now and I love it.  It does everything, and you hit the nail on the head - a very smooth sound.  A fully balanced unit is also a major upgrade from the CXN.

 

GLWTS.
