Richer Sounds exclusive model.

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 Pleased Very pleased with the product and ease of ordering. Richer Sounds after sales was fine. Less pleased with delivery company who tried to deliver to the wrong address twice. Automated system doesn't allow you to organise directly with the delivery folk. Frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Excellent Service Bought this online to resurrect my old Linn Axis turntable and dust off the old vinyl. It is a quality product that performs very well and am very happy. Richer Sounds delivered next day as requested via DPD - thanks for the great service

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well pleased with my purchase I bought the CP1 to use with my recently purchased Azur 851E pre-amp which is then put thru my old integrated amp. After a little "bedding in" my LP's have never sounded better. I bought it online and delivery was swift and painless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, excellent customer service This pre amp works very well, good sound at an affordable price. This needed to be ordered at my local store in Bristol, as they did not have one in stock. Staff were very helpful and friendly, pleasure to deal with. There was a slight delay with the order and was offered another unit to use whilst I waited. Couldn't have asked for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Richer Sounds service The product made no difference when connected to my Kenwood KRF V5050D receiver. I therefore believe the quality of the phono stage within the receiver is as good as the product. The product also arrived damaged; Richer Sounds promptly refunded me. 5*
