Azur 851W
200wpc power amplifier with XD circuitry

$2799.00

Our price $2499.00

The new 851W is Cambridge's best power amplifier. It delivers 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 350 in 4 ohms. In mono it does 500 watts into 8 ohms and 800 watts into 4 ohms. At its heart is Cambridge Audio's innovative and proprietary Class XD system, with 12 output transistors per channel. Combining the best of Class A and Class AB and removing the downsides of both, Class XD amplification eliminates crossover distortion like a Class A amp, while offering the power efficiency of Class AB. THD is under 0.001% at 1K. 

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
