With class-leading video processing, universal playback, extensive socketry and, not to mention Cambridge Audio's first class sound quality, the 651BD is a sensational Blu-ray player.

By using a Marvell QDEO video processor, the Cambridge Audio 651BD punches well above its weight and has the sort of detail and clarity you'd usually expect from a player costing half as much again. As one of the very best, this processor ensures that video sources are reproduced with the lowest levels of motion noise possible. It also upscales DVD signals to Full 1080p output. With many of us still having large collections of DVDs, it's great to have a processor of this quality in order to get the very best from them. Whatever the format, though, the 651BD offers levels of depth, realism and precision that are, once again, up there with the best at this price. Another highly desirable feature with the 651BD is the adoption of twin, 3D enabled, HDMI sockets. The 651BD's two HDMI outputs make it ideal for those with older, non-3D HDMI equipped AV receivers (run one cable to the TV and the other to the receiver) or for those using both a projector and flat screen TV.

As you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, the 651BD has a strong emphasis on sound quality. Cirrus Logic DACs give a refined yet punchy sound quality that's worlds apart from lesser Blu-ray players and good enough to rival CD players around the £300 mark. The 651BD will also play SACD, HDCD and DVD-Audio discs, making it a truly universal player. What's more, you can output the sound via 7.1 or 2 channel phono, making it ideal for those with older but still high quality AV receivers. HDMI audio, of course is also an option. Whatever the audio source, the Pure Audio Mode shuts down video processing and gives the cleanest sound quality possible, with the minimum of interference. In short, whether you listen to CDs or SACDs, DVD-As or HDCDs, the 651BD gives the very highest level of sound quality from a Blu-ray player of this price.

Although the focus is firmly on sound and picture quality, Cambridge Audio hasn't skimped on the features that matter. Twin USB 2.0 ports and a rear mounted eSATA socket allow you to connect a wide variety of storage devices, such as hard drive or USB stick, and enjoy stored music or video via the Blu-ray player. With component video output, optical and coaxial digital outputs, RS-232 socket and Ethernet port, the 651BD wants for little and comes fully equipped for the most advanced of systems. Wrapping up this technological marvel is the high quality Azur metal casing with thick, brushed aluminium front panel and acoustically damped chassis. The Azur navigator remote control is also included and offers full control of other Azur components plus discrete commands for custom install use. In terms of ease of use, the 651BD is much faster than the 650BD in both power-up and loading speed. Thanks to a revised power circuit it also uses less power in stand-by, too.

With class-leading picture and sound, comprehensive socketry and universal playback, the 651BD is unmatched at its price. It's a Blu-ray bombshell!
