REVIEW: CAMBRIDGE AUDIO EDGE A INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER

Cambridge Audio has always represented great value and produces products that punch well above their weight. Cambridge Audio’s Edge A is no exception.

Granted, I provided very good components upstream, to challenge the Edge A to dig deep. But when an amp can so effectively reveal the true nature of its accompanying components, bringing to the party clarity, spaciousness, good tone, and solid drive, I’d say it’s worth your time and your $
