The Cambridge A1MK3SE is the improved version of the ever popular A1. Although outwardly similar, the changes focus upon the internal electronics and improving the already class-leading sound quality. The key improvement is to the power supply. The A1MK3 SE uses a high quality, toroidal device that is usually only found in much more expensive designs. In addition to this, the output capacitors are upgraded to 10, 000uF versions to give a larger, more controlled current to the speakers.
The upshot of these changes is a deeper bass response with improved control. The sound stage appears wider and there is a more natural balance throughout the frequency response. As a final touch, the SE version also has gold-plated phono sockets. These don't just look pretty, but improve the long term contact by being far slower to corrode than nickel plated versions. All in all this is a proper audiophile amp and all for only a small amount more than the A1! Give one a try and we think you'll agree that this is one of the finest sounding budget amps' in existence!
