If you're dedicated to vinyl then treat yourself to a phono pre-amp that's every bit as dedicated - the Cambridge CP1.

A chance to play vinyl or an upgrade on what you already have

Plenty of today's hi-fi equipment doesn't have the ability to plug in a turntable. With the Cambridge CP1 that's quickly rectified, as this phono pre-amp simply plugs into any standard AUX input, allowing your records to be heard at the correct volume level. Even if your hi-fi does have a built-in phono stage, it's still worth considering the CP1. High quality components, a dedicated power supply and fully shielded case all make themselves heard with considerably better sound quality than the vast majority of built-ins.

Class-leading sound quality
This high quality Moving Magnet design features single-ended 'Class A' gain stages and discrete transistors, instead of the more common integrated circuits. This gives less cross-talk and interference across the signal path. What this means for sound quality is a rich, full-bodied sound that's also low on distortion and very quiet in terms of background noise.

Exquisite style and build
You'd never guess that this is a budget phono stage by looking at it. Featuring an all-metal casing with sleek, aluminium front panel and smoothly rounded edges the CP1 could easily pass for a more expensive design. Available in black or silver, the teardrop shape is also the perfect match for the awarding-winning Cambridge CX-range of amps.

Rediscover the hidden depths of vinyl, with the wonderfully transparent-sounding Cambridge CP1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vinyl back to life I had a basic preamp which was at best satisfactory. I decided to upgrade to the Cambridge Audio CP1 and I am really glad I did. I've got fantastic rich sound and I am re-discovering my old vinyl and have started buying second hand vinyl. I use it with a mid price turntable through a Denon RCD M39 mini system (it fits perfectly on top) and some Mission speakers I purchased fro Richer Sounds back in 1996. For the price I can't fault the quality and value and it has already more than paid its way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turntable happiness I needed a simple pre-amp to allow my new turntable to work with a relatively modern amp and this neat little box did the trick quickly and easily. Sounds good too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phono pre amp for the price. Bought this as i was running my turntable trough my yamaha amp. It sounded ok through the yamaha,but through the dedicated Cambridge,it sounds awesome, base is tighter and vocal's are much sharper .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Christmas Present I bought this to send to Santa for my son so can’t really comment on it until he opens it. I’m certain it will be perfect as he did a lot of research before ‘asking santa’
