Cambridge 740 C.

Cambridge is the ultimate digital game and fun under the CD players. Two coaxial and two optical inputs waiting for external sources, two groups can be switched (the unused source must be turned off in double occupancy) and umbenennbar.
So “DVB-S” in the beautiful LCD is actually about when listening to the radio, and the network player may appear as “SQUEEZEBOX”. Similar to Harman Cambridge uses a DSP instead of a digital filter hardware. Thanks to special algorithms developed with Swiss specialist of anagram technologies, the Cambridge-DSP is to make a very precise upsampling and very efficient Jitter suppression. In this way maintained and inflated to 384 kHz sampling rate signal is brought back by two WM_8740 in the analog domain.
The adjustable Digital filter characteristics are what is missing 840_C and the closely related D/A converter DACMagic (AUDIO 5/07 and 1/09) compared to the bigger brother. Experimental Digitalos may siphon with (more does not support the S/PDIF standard) the Up sampled signal for up to 24_Bit and 192 kilohertz also on the digital output, optional even with switched to Dithersignal for the linearization of the connected converter at low levels.
While the latter feature in practice frankly pretty meaningless is pleased the owner guaranteed every day about the beautiful, lying sick in the hand remote control and overall really magnificent building of the 740C. No matter whether it is buffered stream, or to the construction of sound critical analog Output filter stages – to the shielding of the potentially interference active Servoboards, abundant supply of the audio Board with clean screened the English developers have solved each task comparatively luxurious manner. The resulting player is so expensive, but at least on right off the bat, is what you pay.
Not the slightest doubt on the value of the Cambridge comes up if you compare with other players on a good, high-resolution system . AUDIO had brought the KEF reference 207/2 in position for this purpose and as proven the Accuphase E-450. Differences that you can’t hear on this combination, are either not available or not relevant for the price range.

The Cambridge was his exceptional quality with “Acadie” by Daniel Lanois demonstrated, mostly rough and hoarse sounding with affordable players, and that according to the test of high-end digital machines in the room was broke down. No problem: Cambridge drove effortlessly tears in the eyes of the author with “The Maker”. If a player acts directly on the soul, he is very good, say: distortion, wide bandwidth in phrasing and rhythm, and unobtrusive details. The 740_C was at this exalted level of quality but not alone. The NAD the bottom line could catch up with slightly different priorities.
