Richer Sounds exclusive model.

A fully equipped phono stage that's suitable for any turntable, including ones equipped with MC cartridges, the Cambridge CP2 brings out the very best in vinyl.


A chance to play vinyl or a significant 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 CP2 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 CP2. 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.

MC cartridge compatibility
One of the biggest advances over its little brother, the CP1, is the ability to amplify MC (Moving Coil) cartridges. These have an even lower output than MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges and therefore require dedicated amplification. Once correctly amplified, however, the sound quality is stunning with a smoother yet more detailed sound usually possible. If you're serious about vinyl then fitting a good quality MC cartridge is an upgrade that comes highly recommended.

Class-leading sound quality
This high quality 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. There's also copper shielding of sensitive circuits and premium grade, multi-parallel capacitors for even higher levels of sonic accuracy. 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.

Subsonic filter
The CP2 comes fitted with a switchable subsonic filter. This helps limit low frequency 'rumble' caused by vinyl imperfections and helps protect your speakers from excessive wear.

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 CP2 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 joys of vinyl with the flexible Cambridge CP2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific product for the money. I'm very happy with the CP2. I'm using it with a vintage Goldring GL75 fitted with a Goldring E1 cartridge and the results are excellent! Having the balance control and the subsonic filter are very useful. Very happy!
