The Cambridge Audio CD10 makes advanced Cambridge Audio technologies available at a lower cost than ever.

Quality components

At the heart of the Topaz CD10 is a quality Wolfson 8761 DAC - the kind usually only found in more expensive CD players. Combined with this is a 2-pole Butterworth filter that helps give the Topaz CD10 a smooth and balanced sound quality that's free from the harshness that can sometimes afflict budget CD players. Added to this is double-sided, surface-mount technology that keeps single paths as short as possible and, hence, the sound more accurate and precise.

Plays MP3, CD-RW and WMA discs
As with Cambridge Audio's more expensive CD players, the Topaz CD10 features a superior transport system. A carefully chosen servo delivers precise tracking and ensures that the CD10 will play MP3, CDRW and WMA discs, too.

Coaxial digital output
As a step up from the CD5, the CD10 features a coaxial digital output. Use it to record on to digital media or at a later date, upgrade the sound quality with a better DAC, such as the Cambridge Audio DacMagic. As you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, the Topaz CD10 is also much better finished than its rivals. The metal facia fronts a smoothly contoured casing that's designed for vibration resistance as much as good looks.

For a budget CD player that's serious about sound, the Cambridge Audio Topaz CD10 is your first port of call.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegance of sound and function A really sophisticated mid price player giving you focussed, warm and highly detailed sound. It's remarkable sense of a spread out sound-stage is so appealing. Works remarkably well with my Cambridge DAC. You really hear the musical detail. It has the warmth of the best analogue experience with anaylitcal digital at its best. My cd collection has been re-born!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great sound Purchased this to replace a 10 year old Cambridge Audio Azur CD player which was playing up (skipping etc). The improvement in sound quality - clarity, depth, stereo imaging etc - has delighted me. Should have replaced my old player years ago!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Others better Having previously had Marrants CD players I realise it was a mistake to buy cheaper. The player is slow to load and painfully slow to read the CD. The player also jams on some tracks. This has really knocked my confidence in Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Cambridge This wasn't my original choice, but I'm more than satisfied with how it performs. A very sleek looking beast it is as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unforgiveable lack of gapless play. Great sound, detail & clarity is fantastic for the price. It looks great too, but what is unforgivable is the lack of gapless playback. So if you like classical, live albums or anything where one track should blend into the next without interruption, you are in for a shock ! Whoever decided it was a good idea to insert a gap between songs as default wants firing in my opinion especially as it can't be changed, completely ruins any serious listening of quite a lot of discs. Had to exchange it for an Onkyo in the end as it was driving me mad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Partner with the AM10 and Zensor 3 for Rock music I was looking for a new hi-fi system to replace my dated Denon outfit and did a bit of research into the available products. I contacted Richer Sounds in Edinburgh and detailed the components i fancied and examples of the music i normally listen to (Heavy Rock). I received an email from Hauke who advised that the items that i detailed may not be the best for what i wanted and he recommended the Cambridge Audio (CD10 and AM10) and using the Zensor 3 speakers. I arranged a demo, at very short notice (thanks Garry and Hauke) and brought a few of my own CD's. Hauke demonstrated the original setup i fancied and compared to the system he recommended. The difference was really obvious with the Cambridge and Dali combination providing much more punch and depth, which is really essential for Heavy Rock music. I made the purchase on the spot. My experience with Richer Sounds and especially Hauke will remain with me and i cannot understand why anyone would shop anywhere else. Not only did i save a considerable amount of money on the purchase, as the outfit i fancied was a lot more expensive, but Hauke very kindly helped carry the items to my car, which was parked 10 minutes away. He also fitted banana plugs on the speaker cables making it simplistic to setup the system. In summary my trip to Richer Sounds in Edinburgh was extremely fruitful. Not only did i save a considerable sum of money, but also now have a brilliant music system that brings life and atmosphere to my music collection. The Cambridge Audio Topaz (CD10 and AM10) combined with Dali Zensor 3 speakers is a brilliant combination for heavy rock music, providing real punch and drive but never losing control.
