Cambridge Audio Azur 851W Power Amplifier

As well as proprietary Class XD amplification, the 851W uses separate high-end toroidal transformers one for the power amplifier itself and one for input and other circuitry, for a performance unaffected by audio output volume or dynamics. It also uses our proprietary Terrapin impedance buffering modules to separate amplifier and signal impedance for absolutely consistent sound across sources. And CAP5 proprietary protection to avoid DC spikes, overheating, short circuits or clipping.

The result is a stunningly accurate amplifier that's also amazingly powerful and versatile. The 851W offers a massive 200W per channel into 8 Ohms in stereo configuration, but can also be run in bridged mono mode to output 500W RMS per amplifier used.

New touches also include a smart auto-standby mode that detects incoming audio signals, automatically coming out of its energy efficient (<0.5W) standby mode and simplifying integration with any Cambridge Audio preamplifier, such as the stunning 851E.

Powerful, precise and flexible – but most important of all, the best sounding amplifier we've ever made. Prepare to be impressed…

Class XD amplification – Cambridge Audio's proprietary amplification system switches dynamically between Class A and AB systems. Class A amplification delivers the purest possible sound, using only one transistor to conduct, but can be energy inefficient. Class AB involves both transistors conducting simultaneously, but makes it impossible to maintain a balance of low crossover distortion and power efficiency. Our Class XD system operates in both Class A and Class AB mode, dynamically moving the crossover point depending on the audio output volume. This combines the near zero crossover distortion of pure Class A with improved efficiency of Class AB at higher volumes, without any compromises in performance for the best of both world.

Serious power – 200W into 8 Ohms stereo mode is serious power. But for those with bigger plans, the 851W is usable in a mono bridged configuration with each amplifier delivering 500W RMS.

Two toroidal transformers – Separate, high-end transformers for the power amplifier and input and other circuitry ensure audio performance is unaffected by the dramatic current output swings required to drive demanding speakers, by keeping power supplies entirely separate.

Terrapin impedance buffering modules – Cambridge Audio's proprietary modules replace the op-amps commonly found in similar amplifiers. At the critical low level gain stages, these offer far improved stereo separation and imaging – unheard of at this price point.

CAP5 proprietary protection – Protects the integrity of your system by avoiding DC spikes, overheating, short circuits or clipping.

Integration – Smart auto-standby mode detects incoming audio signals to simplify integration with Cambridge Audio preamplifiers.

All-metal chassis – Including extensive use of aluminium to create massive structural rigidity, careful damping and control of acoustic resonance.
