Our Most Detailed Integrated Amplifier
Edge A is made to celebrate musicality. Riffs, phrases, percussive rolls – take in every detail of your music thanks to its dynamic setup. Effortlessly powerful, but with incredible depth, the overall sound is breath-taking – like you’re sat in the recording booth with the musicians.
“At this price, we can’t think of a more complete alternative than the Edge A. Cambridge has done a terrific job.”– May 2020
“The workmanship, the equipment concept, the sound – it’s all well thought out, so valuable, so lovingly implemented…”– August 2018
“With the Edge A, Cambridge Audio has come up with an outright winner that puts the gold in its golden jubilee.”– June 2020
“If you were to build out the perfect hi-fi system for your dream house, this amplifier would probably be at its heart”– December 2018
Using standard Class A amplifier technology wasn’t going to be efficient enough for Edge A. Instead we added a bias voltage to a traditional Class AB design, reducing distortion to inaudible levels. This unique configuration also produces less heat and makes the whole system much more effective.
Pair any Bluetooth device to your Edge A to easily stream your music. With aptX HD support, you can play your audio at up to 24-bit/48kHz quality for an incredibly rich listening experience.
