Cambridge Audio Topaz AM1
Over the past 15 years, Cambridge Audio have been market leaders with their range of budget amplifiers. The Cambridge A1 has been one of the best selling amplifiers of all time! It is therefore with great pleasure that we bring you their latest model; the Cambridge Audio Topaz AM1.
Designed from the ground-up, the AM1 is a no-frills amp with just the basics but the best sound quality possible. There are no tone controls or fancy equalizers. No flashing lights or unnecessary sockets. What you get is four, line level inputs (1 with output), a balance control and a volume knob; oh, and what you also get is superb sound quality! By cutting back on the extras, Cambridge Audio have managed to retain high quality components. Connect your MP3 player or iPod, CD player, PC and TV and you'll enjoy a true-to-life sound quality that's leagues ahead of similarly priced multi-media speakers - trust us, this is proper hi-fi at a low-fi price!
Like other Cambridge Audio Topaz models, the AM1 is also far better built than the class average. A full metal casing with brushed aluminium front panel gives the AM1 the look of an amp' costing two or three times as much.
Wharfedale Diamond 9.0
"Looking for value compact stereo speakers? Look no further". What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.
It's hard to believe that the original Wharfedale Diamond is now coming up to its thirtieth birthday. All those decades ago, it was the Diamond speaker that proved, for the first time, that excellent quality sound could be achieved from a small, budget speaker. Since then there have been dozens of imitators, but the Diamonds remain amongst the best available.
The cabinet isn't just compact, it's also very solid. This combination gives the Diamonds an extremely accurate sound quality as the cabinet doesn't flex or vibrate like larger, less well made speakers. Equally impressive are the drive units. A soft dome tweeter gives the clarity and smoothness of sound you'd expect from a much more expensive speaker whilst the woofer cone uses a carbon fibre type weave to offer extremely taut and responsive bass. With a front port, these bass reflex speakers are punchier than you might expect and in no way could they ever be described as tinny. Over all, they may be small but the sound is grown-up, with excellent staging, realism and surprisingly powerful.
It's not just the major aspects of the design that Wharfedale have got right, it's the details, too. Proper 4mm banana sockets will accept thick cable and offer the best type of connection. Threaded sockets at the rear make for secure and easy bracket attachment.
Harmon Kardon BTA10
With the Harman Kardon BTA10 there's no need to dock your iPhone 5, or other smartphone. Simply connect by high quality Bluetooth and set your music free - no need for a costly Lightning Adaptor!
The Harman Kardon Bluetooth receiver is the ideal way of listening to music from your mobile phone, tablet (such as iPad) or other Bluetooth equipped device on your existing hi-fi. With a maximum range of around 10 metres, the BTA10 is designed to let you hold your device and select the track you want to listen to, without being tied by cables. As you'd expect from Harman Kardon, sound quality is above average. Supporting Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with A2DP, the BTA10 supports the highest quality and best sounding Bluetooth formats.
Connect into a dock, mini system or full blown hi-fi/AV system by a choice of 3.5mm or RCA phonos cables - both are supplied with the unit.
Free the music from your Bluetooth device, wirelessly, and open up a whole new world of listening.
