Smart Thinking! Cambridge Azur 340A
Once in a while you find smart new ideas, with user friendliness in focus.
One such good smart idea you can find in this
Cambridge Audio Budget Amplifier: Cambridge Audio Azur 340A
Have a look at this picture of the REAR ( behind ) of Azur 340A:
Notice the labels, text for each connection
I think anybody of you knows why this is user friendly ........
Cambridge Audio Azur 340A is a very high quality budget amplifier.
Compared to the price, you get a good dead weight (in Kg, Lbs) for your money.
You think I am joking, don't you!
But it is not as much of a joke as you may think.
Because if a traditional amplifier (not Class-D) is light weight
it can not have:
1. Very Big Transformer = powerful supply
2. Very Big HeatSink
3. Stable Rigid Chassis
4. Very good mechanical Damping = light will more easy vibrations
The heavy part in an Amplifier with Good Power Supply is TRANSFORMER.
Azur 340A weighs 6.2kg (13.6Lbs).
This is a good high weight value for a 2x40 Watt at only £150 of an amplifier.
No wonder this cool english budget amplifier has got very good reviews
PS. You can get Azur 340SE, Special Edition, for £200.
But I think 5 extra watt at +£50 is not worth the money. DS.
