There are other unusual touches, such as the way the biasing on the output transistors is handled. There is a positive trade off to this though. It has its own control app, a dedicated remote control, and suave sound to go with its elegant good looks. More important than the circuit itself, are the numbers. As expected, the amp has no trouble working with either. Such are the perils of reviewing things you think you understand that I had neglected to check what the Edge A was using for digital decoding as I had assumed it would be either a Wolfson or Analog Devices chipset because they were the go to devices for the company for many years.

This is not an especially sweet sounding amp once you use it via the digital connections Before the digital inputs see any action, using the Edge A purely as an amplifier with my turntable and phono stage as the source, the Cambridge Audio keeps the faith with the models of old. I connected it to my Ethernet network via a hard-wired connection, but you can also connect via Wi-Fi. This means it has been over 12 years since I had anything to do with any form of product development and the Edge program has taken place with no input from me. Excellent measurements demonstrate that the developers whose signatures are to be found on the circuit boards have done a brillant job. And indeed, the Edge A ran warm, as one would expect from a class-A-heavy design.

The main control dial mechanism is a work of art with its central volume control and outer knurled input selector ring. What does Cambridge Audio do to celebrate its 50th birthday? Cambridge has even made the remote handset classier than the norm. Features To begin, Cambridge wanted as short a signal path as possible to significantly reduce the chance of colour or distortion being added to the sound. In Edge we take this one step further, using opposing symmetry twin toroidal transformers. So, the Edge A has a toroidal transformer; a dirty great big pair of them, working to cancel out their own stray fields, right in the heart of the amplifier.

Edge A is designed to bring musical detail to life. Nothing, frankly, but it sure does put you in the mood. Bass response is also a forte the Cambridge appears keen to establish from the off. Voices in particular are treated impeccably with a combination of detailed timbre and impressive scale, while those considerably higher in pitch or more caustic in tone are allowed to break free. Both the Edge A and Edge W deliver 100 watts of power into 8 Ohms. In fact, the Edge A is a sophisticated combination of the traditional re-drawn to be shiny and new, and the shiny and new redrawn to be more approachable to the traditional.

This is something we noticed on the streaming preamp too. Dadurch werden elektromagnetische Störungen ausgeglichen, während gleichzeitig eine herausragende Leistung und einheitliche Tonlage erreicht werden, ganz egal bei welcher Lautstärke. Across all inputs, there is a strong, musical sense of rhythm, which adds to a well-rounded performance. Match the performance of Edge A with loudspeakers to make the foundations of a hi-fi system unlike anything else. Solving this is the simple matter of changing your speakers to something a little richer and fuller but it does mean that I would suggest a little care is taken partnering the Edge in the first place. The low synth bass parts didn't muck up or interfere with the mid-bass. Features To begin, Cambridge wanted as short a signal path as possible to significantly reduce the chance of colour or distortion being added to the sound.

The most important button, the mute, is centrally located and easy to get to at a moment's notice. Some things are worthy of your attention. Can your audio experience be made simpler, all-inclusive, and qualitatively better? Across the Edge series, Cambridge Audio have endeavored to keep the signal path - the components between the music source and output — as short as possible. Dadurch gibt Edge die Originalaufnahme mit einem beeindruckend detaillierten, dreidimensionalen Sound sowie markanter Inszenierung und Fokussierung getreu wieder. Cambridge does it in a way that is claimed to offer many advantages of traditional Class A operation but without the high power consumption and heat generation.
