Cambridge Audio has always represented great value and produces products that punch well above their weight. Cambridge Audio’s Edge A is no exception.
The simplicity of styling and operation are outstanding and fresh in a copy-cat kind of world. It is a well thought out package and is in step with modern needs. But it’s the sound quality that really has me excited. It delivers sound the way that I prefer, with enthusiasm, youthfulness, dynamic expression and musicality that only genuinely great products deliver. It’s fun to listen to and begged me to keep playing a little longer.
With 50 solid years under its belt, Cambridge Audio is a company firmly set on remaining here for another 50. It will take precisely this type of ‘outside of the box’ thinking to draw new customers their way.
The Edge A is excellent value for money, and I dare say there’s not a better sounding integrated amplifier at the asking price. I tried to find one but couldn’t, and that’s why I’m buying the review sample for myself: a well-deserved Applause Award recipient and an unquestionable recommendation.
