” You’d have to spend considerably more to match or better the quality on offer here, making this nothing short of a conspicuous bargain.” ’Hi-Fi News’ – Outstanding Product.

The finest sounding Cambridge Audio amp ever

Painstaking developed over many years, the Edge A 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 A sounds closer to live music than ever. If you want to hear what the musician hears, listen to this.

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

Sweet music
Using an element of Class A amplifier design gives the Edge A a sweet and natural sound that rivals the finest valve amps. Cambridge Audio also replaced conventional capacitors with DC coupled topology and a precision volume control. When combined, these provide the cleanest signal path for uninterrupted, musical magic.

Power to match the precision
This highly developed hybrid amplifier has no problem driving hard as it does sounding sweet. Packing a true 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms and a monstrous 200 watts at 4 ohms, the Edge A 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 A 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 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 24.4kg of British beef!

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 A has that covered, too. A set of XLR balanced inputs lets you connect a suitable CD player or network streamer with studio grade precision. Balanced cables offer better shielding and a more stable signal, letting you hear every detail that the Edge A is capable of.

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.

Connect your TV via HDMI
When your amp 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 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 A enhances the sound of your digital components. Plug in up to three devices, such as CD/DVD player, games console and streamer and you’ll get a significant upgrade in sound. For analogue sources there’s an additional two pairs of phono RCA inputs – perfect for connecting a quality phono stage.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just makes the music fun There’s a popular YouTube reviewer who recently set up a system to get that excitement back into his thin 1980’s records and did so with a Hegel amp. I think you will get the same impact with this Cambridge Edge for half the price and it also looks so much better. It just puts a smile on my face every time I sit down to listen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Amazing! What the reviews say are all true of this Amplifier. It just lets the music breathe and wash over you with all the emotion and energy intact and full of detail. The sound on the USB input with Hi Res files and streaming hifi quality is amazing. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Edge. If you’re in the market for a new amplifier and have the money, just go and buy it. It is that good. It’s draws you into the music and doesn’t let go. Is there any need to look elsewhere, no... superb.
