”A great record player, a brilliant hi-res wireless source and a genuine world-first.” ’Trusted Reviews’ – Highly Recommended - 5-Star review

The perfect blend of sound and function

Offering the perfect synergy of sound and function, the Cambridge Alva TT is an audiophile turntable that’s also easy to set-up and use. Unlike like some high-end turntables, set-up is drama free and speed control is via electronic control (no need to manually change the belt over). A built-in phonostage and Bluetooth output offer universal connectivity, letting you enjoy the top quality sound from any Hi-Fi or speaker system.

World’s first Bluetooth aptX HD turntable
This isn’t the first turntable to wirelessly connect to your Hi-Fi or Bluetooth speaker, but it is the first to do so without compromising on sound quality. Bluetooth connectivity usually means a loss in sound quality but, thanks to the Alva TT’s aptX HD output, wireless sound is better quality than ever. Working up to 24 bit/48kHz, the Alva TT offers Hi-Res audio to beat CD – cable-free.

Or cable it up
For a fully analogue experience, little beats a cabled connection. The Alva TT features a 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.

Direct Drive for ultimate precision
Rather than using a belt drive system, the Alva TT opts for Direct Drive. This offers excellent pitch stability, for clean precise notes. A further advantage is there’s no belt to clean and replace.

Top quality, British-made tonearm
Engineered from a single piece of aluminium, the tonearm’s arm-tube is as rigid as possible. This means the best possible support for the cartridge, with the least sound lost to mechanical inefficiency. The classic design is highly proven and renowned as one of the best tonearms in its class. In short, it simply gets on with playing the music, with as little distortion as possible.

Moving Coil cartridge for accurate detail
Another sign of this turntable’s top-class credentials is the standard fit Moving Coil cartridge. Reserved for the highest quality turntables, Moving Coil (MC) cartridges improve over the standard Moving Magnet (MM) versions by offering a fixed stylus for improved accuracy. Smoother and more natural-sounding, once you’ve heard just how good a MC cartridge can sound, you won’t want to go back to MM.

Easy to set-up and practical
With the cartridge already in place and no belt to install, it’s easy to get started with the Alva TT. Simply adjust the weight and push the bias setting to ‘2’ and you’re good to go. Once set-up, a practical lid and push-button speed control make the Alva TT easy to live with.

Stylish good looks
Sleek, clean lines with a reassuring solidness, the Alva TT exudes a sense of quality. Finished in classic graphite grey and black, the Alva TT’s smooth style perfectly match the Cambridge Audio Edge but also blend seamlessly with a wide range of other brand components and speakers.

Get deeper into the groove, with the Cambridge Audio Alva TT turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appearing on Vinyl again. I finally decided to order after months of deliberation, and like a previous review states, So glad i have taken the plunge. Of course it is not a cheap turntable and many are now out there, albeit it few Bluetooth. The set up is simple, basically the tracking force to be done and away you go. I paired my headphones effortlessly , cabled it to my Azur 851a , and then the experience began, initially I am hyper critical , but once i settle down it`s realizing it fits the brief and I very happy. Vinyl and it`s comeback have reunited me with an old friend and those memories of endless trips to local record shops, to buy 45`s in the `70s. The Alva TT is a great addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, easy set up & connection, great sound! Form as well as function is important to me and I wanted to play my old vinyl whilst using my Naim mu-so. This turntable has incredible design, connects seamlessly and sounds great. Set-up was simple and the Bluetooth aptX connection is rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different but don't let that fool you Just a really good turntable, especially if you want something that performs well and is easy to set up and use. I feel the arm is let down by the plastic end stub - I changed it out to a metal stub. Some reviews mention a lack of omph or dynamics which I felt was not completely untrue but some experimentation with a thin platter mat and a record weight seem to eradicate this. Overall excellent and who doesn't like to try out a few cheap tweeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I'd hoped for ! Being no stranger to Cambridge Audio equipment - my CXNv2 having been acquired a year or so ago - I felt motivated to purchase the ALVA TT. Unboxing and setting up proved straightforward and pleasurable.The build quality is immediately apparent and, after two weeks of daily use, I am totally won over by this truly desirable piece of kit. A few things worth mentioning ... Do take the time to balance the tone arm as instructed and be aware that it feels almost weightless when lining it up for lowering down to play records. The apex bluetooth paired with my headphones in seconds and appears to have a decent range as I was able to enjoy high quality, detailed sound even in adjoining rooms. Furthermore, Cambridge Audio provide decent interconnects to link with AMP AUX IN - a significant plus ! And the audio experience ? I'm hearing stunning musical sensitivity and detail, even from my 1950's vinyls. Thanks to the ALVA TT, my listening is mightily enhanced !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reconnect with vinyl without the extra "boxes" I bought the Cambridge Audio Alva TT as an opportunity to reconnect with my sadly neglected vinyl collection but without the need to buy separate amps etc. The Bluetooth AptX HD streaming was a key factor in my selection as this feature allows you to stream Hi Res sound straight to wireless speakers or suitable bluetooth AptX HD headphones though there is connectivity to allow you to connect via standard cables to an amplifier. The quality of sound output generated from the Cambridge moving coil cartridge and inbuilt phono pre amp is excellent and warm. My vinyl collection, sounded as good if not better than I remember when I bought it many moons back and certainly comparable if not better than comparable lossless hi res audio files whether listening on wireless speakers or suitable bluetooth headphones . The quality of build is high and construction is really solid and stable.The design is minimalist but functional and stylish. The set up is straightforward and painless, especially if you view the Cambridge Audio unboxing and set up video on Youtube first. Definitely a good choice and a perfect way to rediscover my vinyl collection.
