Rated 5 out of 5 by TWECKO Cambridge Audio Top Company.
My recent buy of a Topaz 25 watt amplifier has proved over the past few days to be a very good decision.It replaced a Nad amp of similar power bought at Richer 23 years ago.Yes- 23 years! Although it has similar power and sound quality in ordinary hi-fi applications,for myself as a composer in the genres of jazz/rock/electronica/classical and similar, my happiest surprise was a 30 percent improvement in bass quality of tone,and a similarly high percent in detail of separation of notes. The original music is quite often 'note busy',and anyone into techno or jazz will know what sequencers and the like sound like,and jazzers play fast too.So,at some points,there are dozens of notes running together,and this is the great value of the amp,and also of the cable bought with it.- at 2.49 a metre,it was a mere 15 Earth pounds to get connected,and the update is,at 135gbp,one of my lifetime bargains.And it will go for years Old style system user? BUY THIS AMP!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ealingsounds great sound
Bought this to replace an ageing Denon. I added the Topaz Phono amp as I'm increasingly playing vinyl. Sound is warm & involving. Makes me want to play music, which says it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fleeting1972 Get This....
....and spend more on a pair of decent speakers...
First with this I try's it with a pair of diamond 9 speakers....awful!
Next I connected a pair of Monitor Audio MR1's from my surround system which sounded very good but I have settled on a pair of Dali Zensor 1's and they sound great!!!
If all your after is top sound quality and aren't bothered by bells n whistles then buy this amp!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyPitstop Amazing sound for the price
We decided to update our old stereo system and went to Richer Sounds on Artillery Row. Jules, the deputy manager, was brilliant and I walked away with this and a Denon turntable plus some speaker cabling. It took no time at all to set up and the sound is amazing. I will be going back for a CD player very soon. Thank you Richer a Sounds - our vinyl has never sounded so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom91 Excellent quality for reasonable price
I had previously bought a pair of whafedale diamond 9s from richersounds London Bridge but required an amp for more control and quality. After speaking to the staff in the branch they suggested the topaz am5 and it has fit perfectly with the speakers. It is simple and high quality build and suits my needs as I am using purely as my desk speaker set up.
The only reason I have given it a 4/5 for value is due to the fantastic deal I got on my previous purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigal46 Great value
Lovely clarity and quite punchy for its output having separate bass and treble controls. Good range of connectivity. Ideal as part of a small room system. Bought to replace a dead NAD 310. Very pleased. Highly recommended. Great delivery info from Richersounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRON I'm satisfied
I bought this amplifier to replace my 30 year old Cyrus 1.
It produces fine sound; I hope it, and me, last as long as the Cyrus!
