”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 Natural Sound combined with good looks. I bought this to replace a 40 year old Thorens TD160 and I'm genuinely amazed at how good it is. It came with the cartridge pre-installed and perfectly aligned. Set up was very easy with the included stylus weight gauge. It looks good and sound good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all rounder I wanted to upgrade my system to one which, not being an audiophile particularly, would offer great sound quality with the right complimentary pieces, but also offered the convenience of Bluetooth when needed and without requiring masses of cables etc. Pleased to say this ticked all the boxes I was looking for; looks smart, great build quality, sounds good and offers convenience paired with good quality Bluetooth or active speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Sound I have bought this for my husband's Christmas. He has shown a very keen interest on this turntable and highly praised the quality many times. He has also read many positive reviews. I am sure he will love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Turntable I am a fan of Cambridge Audio having several other items from their range. Being an avid vinyl collector I was looking to upgrade my turntable and was drawn to the Alva TT because it was made by a company I trusted and it has direct drive removing the pain of having to change belts periodically. I was not to be disappointed. Easy set up, great sound I am thoroughly impressed with this turntable. yes it's a bit more expensive compared to some but if you play a lot of records then it's worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, Great Service, Timely delivery! I have been pondering for several months about the Alva TT, I really pleased I finally ordered. Its still early days in my "run in" period, but I must say I have nothing but good things to say. Great sound dynamics throughout all ranges. The build quality is superb, and the unit is very weighty. Delivery was painless and arrived just. as described, easy set up, playing vinyl on no time at all, thanks to the easy set up of the Alva TT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thomas Alva Edison would be proud This turntable is stunning. Simplicity itself to set up and simple to use. The whole unit shouts quality. Sound is as you would expect from a high end product, I find it to be mellow, yet reproduces the treble and bass in more than sufficient quantity. I am no expert in hi fi at all, simply made what I hoped to be a once in a lifetime purchase based on reviews and listening in store ( thumbs up Leicester guys). The whole system of amp, CD player, streamer and now Alva TT is my idea of magic. Now I’ve just got to get my albums out of storage !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound via Sonos port in & aptx HD headphones Bought this a few weeks ago but was out of stock initially, well worth the wait. Set up out of the box is simple, great videos on the Cambridge Audio YouTube channel too. Bluetooth connectivity can be a little tricky initially but the instructions do say turn off all adjacent Bluetooth devices.
