    ”Simply put, if we had a budget of £3500 for a pre-amp and streamer, we’d buy the Edge NQ.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £3500

    A reference standard for streaming music

    Featuring the highest quality digital components and a revolutionary pre-amp design, the Cambridge Audio Edge NQ meets audiophile standards for sound quality.

    Sound first principle
    Painstaking developed over many years, the Edge NQ was tuned not by machine but by human ear. Once perfected, the end result delivers perfect musical balance with nothing added or taken away. With every component selected by listening session, the Edge NQ sounds closer to live music than ever. If you want to hear what the musician hears, listen to this.

    Audiophile pre-amp design
    Using a unique circuit board, the Edge NQ features DC coupled topology to replace conventional capacitors. A finely engineered, solid-state volume control matches the board to give the cleanest signal path and the lowest level of distortion.

    Award-winning streaming software
    As early pioneers of digital streaming, there’s few that produce music streaming software as good as Cambridge Audio. The latest version of the award-winning StreamMagic system features a faster chipset with support for 24bit/192kHz and DSD128 Hi-Res music files.

    Stream it all
    Designed to be amongst the most flexible music streamers in its class, the Edge NQ covers all the music sources you might need. Chromecast, Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify Connect (Spotify Premium account required) and Internet radio are all covered. On the socket front, HDMI, multi-USB, balanced XLR, optical, coaxial and RCA phono are all present and correct, making this surely the best-connected streamer in its class.

    Chromecast built-in
    With Google’s Chromecast built-in, you can stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Stream wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or laptop and enjoy music up to 24bit/96kHz Hi-Res quality.

    High resolution Bluetooth
    With support for aptX, the Bluetooth receiver built-in gets the best from your smartphone or tablet. This wireless connection gets close to CD quality while offering the convenience of streaming music straight from your device.

    The highest level of digital streaming – via USB
    If you’ve got a precious digital music library stored on your laptop or PC then the very best way to access it is via USB. The USB Audio Class 2.0 interface supports up to 32-bit/384kHz or DSD256 for effortless Hi-Res music playback.

    Studio grade XLR balanced inputs and outputs
    If you prefer analogue connectivity then the Edge NQ has that covered, too. A set of XLR balanced inputs lets you connect a suitable CD player with studio grade precision. Balanced cables offer better shielding and a more stable signal, letting you hear every detail that the Edge NQ is capable of.

    Connect your TV via HDMI
    When your streamer sounds this good it would be a shame not to let your TV share the benefit. An HDMI with ARC (Audio Return Channel) means you can connect up your TV and benefit from its audio being played through the pre-amp – MTV will never have sounded so good!

    Your other digital and analogue devices – fully connected
    Thanks to built-in DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), the Edge NQ enhances the sound of your digital components. Plug in up to three devices, such as CD/DVD player, games console and set-top box and you’ll get a significant upgrade in sound. Music stored on memory sticks can easily be connected via the USB A-Type interface at the back. For analogue sources, there’s an additional two pairs of phono RCA inputs – perfect for connecting a quality phono stage.

    Perfect partner
    Designed to match the Edge W power amp, the Edge NQ provides the brains to the W’s considerable brawn. With the two sharing the same development process and sonic tuning, the sound signature of both is perfectly matched.

    You’ve heard the rest, now hear the best – Cambridge Audio has the Edge.

    Designed and built without compromise, the Cambridge Edge W offers the ultimate in power and precision.

    Perfect partner

    Designed to match the Edge NQ pre-amp/streamer, the Edge W power amp adds the brawn to the NQ’s considerable brains. With the two sharing the same development process and sonic tuning, the sound signature of both is perfectly matched.

    Highly developed sound
    Painstakingly developed over many years, the Edge W was tuned not by machine but by countless listening sessions. Once perfected, the end result delivers perfect musical balance with nothing added or taken away. With every component selected by ear, the Edge W sounds closer to live music than ever. If you want to hear what the musician hears, listen to this.

    Less is more
    Thanks to a thorough design process, the Edge W features just 14 components in its signal path. With each component having the potential to colour the sound, the fewer the better. Cambridge Audio’s minimalist approach gives the Edge W its faithful reproduction and sublime musicality.

    Ultimate precision
    Using twin toroidal transformers, the Edge W cancels electromagnetic interference. This gives lower distortion and an ‘inky black’ background, meaning you’ll hear every subtle detail of music – no matter how quiet.

    Power to match the precision
    This highly developed hybrid amplifier has no problem driving hard as it does sounding precise. Packing a true 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms and a monstrous 200 watts at 4 ohms, the Edge W is unfazed by almost any speaker. Unlike some high-end amplifiers, this is one design that takes difficult speakers in its stride.

    Style and substance in perfect harmony
    The Cambridge Edge W looks every bit as exquisite as it sounds. Using the same principles of precision and ‘nothing added’, the minimalist design is timeless. The smooth, all-metal casing is also crafted to the highest standards. As an indication as to just how solidly this amp is constructed, just take a look at the weight – a mighty 23.6kg of British beef!

    You’ve heard the rest, now hear the best – Cambridge Audio has the Edge.

    Ground-breaking design delivers sensational sound quality, with the ultra-stylish Q Acoustics Concept 300.

    Designed like no other standmount speaker

    Using technology from their flagship Concept 500, the Concept 300 introduces a whole new level of sophistication to its speaker class. The revolutionary stand and isolated base suspend and support the speaker like no other design. The triple-layer cabinet reduces resonance to an absolute minimum and the drive units respond with total faith to the music. The result is the highest quality music playback – pure and simple.

    Triple-layer cabinet for the purest sound
    The cabinet is constructed from three separate layers, damped by Gelcore non-setting gel. This reduces cabinet distortion to an absolute minimum, letting your hear the sound exactly as the artist intended.

    Total isolation with Isolation Base and Tensegrity stand
    Supplied with the speakers, the elegant Tensegrity stands don’t just look the part, they enhance the sound, too. Lightweight and rigid they maximise support by their dynamically balanced tripod design and ultra-low levels of resonance. For the perfect coupling of speaker and stand, the base of the Concept 300s features a suspended Isolation Base with four internal springs. This blocks vibrations from the speakers affecting the stand and vice versa, giving class-leading purity and the lowest distortion.

    Life-like sound
    To deliver a life-like sound, Q Acoustics has concentrated on giving the Concept 300 an immersive soundstage with broad width and depth of sound. By using a rigid, narrow but deep cabinet, precise crossover and high performance drive units, they’ve achieved just that. Sit back, close your eyes and you could be there.

    Transparent mid-range and bass
    Using a light and rigid cone with powerful magnet, the woofer delivers stunning speed and accuracy. This not only means a punchy, upbeat bass but also beautifully transparent vocals from the mid-range for a totally life-like performance. Although not as deep as the larger Concept 500, the bass still impresses with its power. A deep cabinet and long throw woofer cone mean, given a powerful amp, the bass is still deep enough to rattle your windows.

    Sweet top end
    At the other end of the frequency response, mechanically decoupled tweeters give a smooth yet detailed treble response. Mechanical decoupling effectively isolates the tweeter from vibrations, letting the full clarity from the top end shine out. If a pin drops on the recording, you’ll hear it.

    Choose your luxury finish
    The Concept 300 doesn’t just sound exceptional, it looks it, too. The luxurious finish combines high gloss surfacing with a choice of real wood veneers. Choose from black with rosewood, silver with ebony or white with oak for a speaker that stands out in style – especially when mounted on its striking stand.

    Get closer than ever to the true sound, with the remarkable Q Acoustics Concept 300 – they’re the next best thing to hearing it live.
