The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier is the British brand’s entry-level offering. Contrary to what its affordable price might suggest, it is extremely user-friendly and delivers extraordinary musicality.
Thanks to an output of 35W under 8 Ohms, it is compatible with a wide range of high quality 2 and 3-way speakers Its connectors are basic but get the job done – on the back there are 4 high output RCA inputs, one phono RCA input for moving magnet (MM) and one rec out. The front panel has a 3.5mm jack input for MP3 players, smartphones and tablets. It also has a 6.35mm jack headphone output, a volume dial and 4 buttons to select your source. A Menu button has also been added, which enables you to adjust the tone via a blue LCD display. The internal structure is basic but extremely well put together, and uses only the best quality components. The power supply is designed around an excellent toroidal transformer, which not only delivers drastically improved bass response, but also contributes to a rich and serious reproduction of your favourite music.
The Cambridge Audio AM10 amp has an in-built phono stage that means you can connect it directly to your amplifier without any need for an extra device.
The AM10 amp boasts remarkable musicality for a product in this price range. We love how easy and user-friendly it is, not to mention the dynamism, detail and versatility it offers. Just add a nice little pair of speakers and a top quality digital source (Cambridge Topaz CD 10) or vinyl turntable, and sit back and enjoy! It is certainly a better option that any of the entry-level amplifiers produced in Asia! We highly recommended it! Franck
