Sound, style and functionality blend together to make the Cambridge Audio Alva ST turntable a class-leading all-rounder.

Blends sound and function like nothing else in its class
Exquisitely engineered, the real beauty of the Cambridge Audio Alva ST is how well it blends sound and functionality. Unlike many of its rivals, set-up is drama free and speed control is via electronic control (no need to manually change the belt). A built-in phonostage and Bluetooth output offer universal connectivity, letting you enjoy the top quality sound from any hi-fi, speaker system or even Bluetooth headphones.

Switchable, high quality Bluetooth aptX HD output
The top quality Bluetooth aptX HD output is a standout feature with the Alva ST. Bluetooth connectivity usually means a loss in sound quality but, thanks to the Alva ST’s aptX HD output, wireless sound is much higher quality. Working up to 24 bit/48kHz, the Alva ST delivers Hi-Res audio to beat CD – cable-free. For improved sound when not using the Bluetooth output, it’s switchable – reducing possible interference when using a cabled connection.

Built-in, switchable phonostage
For a fully analogue experience, little beats a cabled connection. The Alva ST features a switchable, built-in phonostage, so it connects to any hi-fi system with an AUX input. RCA phono outputs let you use any phono cable, allowing you to use longer or higher quality cables of your choice. If you already have a high quality phonostage, simply switch the output level at the rear.

Highly engineered tonearm
Rigid and low resonance, the Alva ST’s tonearm is every bit as thoughtfully engineered as the rest of the turntable. It features a detachable headshell, making it much easier to remove the cartridge – ideal for when you’re cleaning the deck and don’t want to risk damaging the stylus or for when upgrading to a new cartridge. With adjustable anti-skating, the rigid tonearm cleanly follows the record’s groove, giving you clear and lifelike sound.

Fitted with a legendary cartridge
Supplied fitted with the legendary Audio Technica AT-VM95E cartridge, the Alva ST is ready to play, straight out of the box. Detailed, musical and engaging, the cartridge makes listening to music fun. As part of the VM95 family, it’s easy to upgrade the stylus as and when funds allow. Simply slide out the old and slot in the new for an instant upgrade in sound (with optional VM95EN, VM95MK or VM95SH styli).

Easy to set-up and practical
With the cartridge already in place, it’s easy to get started with the Alva ST. Simply dial up the correct weight and anti-skating and you’re good to go. Once installed, a practical lid and push-button speed control make the Alva ST easy to live with.

Stylish good looks
Sleek, clean lines and a reassuring solidness means the Alva ST exudes a sense of quality. Finished in Cambridge’s signature lunar-grey and matte black, the Alva ST’s smooth style perfectly matches other Cambridge Audio products.

Do justice to your precious record collection, with the talented Cambridge Audio Alva ST.
