Rated 4 out of 5 Good basic amp
I bought this as a secondary amp for my dinning room. At first I was not at all impressed .But after running it for about 5 hours it started to improve. It is a very good no frills amp. The only gripe I have is that the volume control as no resistance to it .Also on the picture provided on the web site it looks like the little blue lights on the control knobs light up .They don't .Yes small gripe but it is best you know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikejust58 Excellent quality even at low volumes
I started using a very old JVC amplifier after my last amp lost a channel. I love my old JVC amp but decided to replace it when I bought a pair of Mission M33i floor stand speakers. The Topaz AM5 is a brilliant match, no frills but excellent sound. I listen late at night sometimes and do not like headphones, however this amp provides a depth of quality at low volume as well so all in all I am delighted and not bothering family or neighbours at unsocial hours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kazper Cambridge clarity
Bought for a secondary system with budget in mind.
A failed amplifier (quite old) prompted this purchase and I was looking for a good sound at a low price. Some years ago I had a Cambridge P30 and was always impressed by the clarity this could produce into good speakers and this drew me towards the Topaz range of amplifiers. This new amp achieves the same clarity and control that I remember.
Cambridge have maintained the none fussy approach to design and it has no useless frills or lights but is stylish and simple to use.
I have matched the amp to Gale 3010S (budget) speakers and the combined sound quality is superb.
The MP3 jack input is useful but the volume needs to be boosted quite a bit when using an MP3 player due to limited output from such devices. Nonetheless the sound produced is of very reasonable quality.
I do believe that this amp could be matched with upmarket systems and achieve even better results

Bought this to replace my 30 year old amplifier which finally gave up the ghost. After only a few minutes I realised I had been missing loads of previously unheard detail in my music.
Solidly built with simple controls and easy to set up..
Excellent service from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mickey28 Gave new life to my music
I bought this amp to replace an almost 30 year old Technics model. The sound through the speakers just blew me away. There was a clarity and warmth to the music which I didn't ever got with my previous amp. The build and look of the Cambridge is stunning and the mp3 input really useful.
I just wish I had updated my amp earlier.

A nice introduction into the world of Hi-Fi separates without breaking the bank. Sets up in seconds from the box and great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keithred Excellent sound quality for a reasonable price
I have been delighted with the sound quality from my Cambridge amp. Having used my old system for many years I was concerned that a non-expensive repalcement might not produce the sound I was used to. I needn't have worried. It really is excellent.
