In celebration of Cambridge Audios 50th anniversary, SYNERGY AV will be presenting at the club the latest products from this British company. Known for delivering a high value sound, Cambridge has developed a new range of electronics called 'Edge'. The new line up takes them into the high-end territory, with their looks and build every bit the equal of other high-end companies.


The EDGE A is a new integrated amplifier which includes a DAC. The digital board is able to cope with 32bit PCM and DSD 256. The amp is conservatively rated at 100W/8ohms with sufficient reserve to accommodate 1ohm loads. To facilitate bi-amping, the Edge A has a set of pre outs, both XLRs and RCAs. A simple facia with its large single volume control also accesses a number of inputs, including a dedicated MC phono stage


Cambridge is also releasing a turntable, the ALVA TT. Designed to complement the Edge A, they have developed their own custom Moving Coil cartridge to match the tone arm and spec's of the internal pre amp. Old-meets-new technology with this turntable, as it also supports the newest Bluetooth wireless streaming technology, AptX HD @ 24bit/48kHz, as does the amplifier.


The Cambridge system will be partnered with a pair of ELAC ADANTE AF-61 floorstanding speakers. Elac undertook to create one of their most ambitious speaker design to date. The advanced design starts with a precision-built cabinet that features 'Interport-Coupled Cavity' bass loading, to exploit the new active and passive bass drivers. With three 6.5-inch woofers internally mounted in their own space, they fire into the back of the three 8-inch passive radiators which face the listener. The mids and highs are taken care of with a 5-inch dual concentric driver housing a 1-inch tweeter.


Phil from Synergy AV, has hinted to me that there will also be a new integrated amplifier on demo, something to do with valves. I guess you are going to have to turn up on the night to find out, see you there.
