With an improved power supply and smoother styling, the Cambridge Audio 651P sharpens up a classic phono stage.

Improved power supply

Based on the award-winning 640P, the 651P offers an improved power supply. Whereas the old 640P was powered continuously, the 651P features a facia-mounted power switch. It's a simple feature but one that helps save power and money.

Fresh look
With a more rounded lid and front panel plus a bold new design for the Cambridge Audio logo, the 651P matches the latest generation of Cambridge Audio products. As before, the build quality and finish is exceptional for a budget phono stage. The front panel is aluminium and the casing all-metal, with the fixing bolts hidden at the bottom and back for a clean look.

Same great performance
The 651P phono pre-amplifier uses superior amplification circuitry for its MM and MC stages for the lowest possible distortion and noise. This flagship model employs multi-parallel capacitors for an exceptional accuracy of sound and has a comprehensively specified Moving Magnet stage, as well as the higher gain needed for compatibility with high-end Moving Coil (MC) cartridges. The result is a hugely dynamic, involving and open sound.

If you love your music and love your vinyl, then the Cambridge Audio 651P is the vital phono stage to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain older model Budget solution that sounds great right out of the box. I needed a phono stage to connect my turntable to Sonos Play 5 and this into does not disappoint. Enjoying listening to my old vinyl again. Would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Excellent phono stage to connect my Pro-ject Carbon DC to Cambridge Audio one Mini, does exactly what it says on the tin, sound quality is just about perfect - for me, others may have different views, used with mainly rock/ blues, Joe Bonamassa, pink floyd, gillan, Beethoven etc. Even has option for moving coil as well. Bought as an ex demo so saved a few quid as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product solved my problem with a humming sound from Vinyl record player. Hi, I´m using an Arcam AVR600 together with a Technics SL1210 Mk2 player and I have been struggling with a low humming noice that I could not get rid of. (Ortophon OM 10 pickup BTW.) When I saw this bargain price I thought why not, lets try it out and see if it solves my problem. AND it DID indeed solve it. The 651p is now connected between the player and the AVR600 and I´m using a highlevel port (CD) instead of the built in low level phono. The humming noice is gone, the sound is better due to lack of noice and I can now really crank up the volume without problems. Overall I´m very happy with the product and it looks good next to the player. BTW: It would be nice with a EU poweradaptor instead of the UK one but that´s not your fault:-) ) BR Göran

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sound Very easy to connect, and vastly improves the the deck input. My vinyl never sounded better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise and powerful sound We bought this to improve the somewhat lacklustre phono stage in our otherwise great amp (an Onkyo A9010). Very impressed with the rich, open and detailed sound quality. A breeze to set up and currently paired with CHORD C-LINE 0.5M leads. The Clash's 'London Calling' never sounded better (especially on our Rega RP3 turntable).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio Azur 651P So where do I start. First Cambridge products always come well packed,with a nice cover. So from that I set everything up as I only have a MM cartridge and switched the filter on. From this I tried various LPs and what a surprise I was in for. Everything that that I played I found the sound stage very open lots of detail.all from vinyl . So my conclusion to the 651P it is worth every penny.The unit it self is very sturdy well finished. I have listened to a few phono pre amps nothing in opinion cam close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat, simple, and easy to set up Goes well with the 651 Azur integrated amp. Provides excellent sound for vinyl. A neccessary addition to this integrated amplifier and has switchable outputs for MM and MC cartridges.
