Breathtaking Musicality

The EDGE A is engineered to bring out the finest musical details, delivering a sound that is finely balanced, deep, and clear.

This meticulous process resulted in a groundbreaking arrangement that produces a much cleaner signal path, allowing your music to breathe and flourish. The EDGE A delivers Cambridge Audio's classic British sound – unaltered and pristine.

More Musical Detail

Cambridge Audio pioneered the use of toroidal transformers in amplifiers, leading to enhanced performance. With the EDGE A, they have taken this innovation further by using opposing symmetry twin toroidal transformers. This design cancels out electromagnetic interference, providing outstanding power and consistent tonality, regardless of the volume. The result is a musical experience that retains its quality at any listening level.

Effortless Power Without Distortion

Standard Class A amplifier technology wasn’t sufficient for the EDGE A. Instead, Cambridge Audio added a bias voltage to a traditional Class AB design, significantly reducing distortion to inaudible levels. This unique configuration not only minimizes distortion but also produces less heat, making the system more efficient and effective. The EDGE A delivers powerful performance without compromising on clarity.

Hi-Res Bluetooth

Stream your music effortlessly with the EDGE A’s high-resolution Bluetooth capabilities.

This allows you to play audio at up to 24-bit/48kHz, ensuring a rich and detailed listening experience.

Sonic Balance

The EDGE A features a unique PCB design with a DC coupled topology and a solid-state volume control. These innovations replace conventional capacitors, resulting in a clean signal path that maintains perfect balance at any volume. The EDGE A’s design ensures that every musical detail is faithfully reproduced, providing a superior audio experience.

Perfect Partners

The EDGE series is designed to work in perfect harmony. Pair the EDGE A with complementary loudspeakers to create a hi-fi system that is both visually stunning and acoustically impressive. The performance of the EDGE A, combined with the right speakers, forms the foundation of an exceptional audio system that delivers unparalleled sound quality.
