Cambridge Audio's Azur 550A focuses on explosive sonic performance, incredible value, and timeless design. Whatever music you're into, the 550A reflects a passion for making the very most of it. Cambridge Audio's highly respected amplifier topology goes to new levels of performance and refinement with the introduction of the 550A. A completely redesigned output stage helps improve bass response and dynamics while enabling control of virtually any speaker with aplomb. One area which has received considerable attention is the Cambridge Audio's proprietary CAP5 protection system. Maintaining the original design's raison d'être (constantly monitoring for overloads, faults and clipping whilst guaranteeing no sound degradation) this new iteration now allows for even greater dynamics and more powerful real-world performance. And like its highly respected predecessors, the 550A features an oversize transformer for excellent efficiency and extremely low noise. But power is nothing without control and it's not just at high volumes where this amplifier offers peak performance. A completely new high specification Alps volume pot control ensures perfect channel balance at low levels. It's complemented by new tone controls offering equally intricate level setting. Other important improvements include new audiophile grade polypropylene signal capacitors, gold-plated speaker outputs, custom-made electrolytic capacitors in critical positions, and several new carefully calculated circuit tweaks. With so much shoehorned inside, it's astonishing how the new Azur 550A looks so elegant.
