Another unexpected bonus is this setup also delivers spectacular sound from streaming Pandora. I bought the Avantree Long Range dongle to transmit Pandora from my PC. Then I used the "Bluetooth Receiver, Hi-Fi Wireless Audio Adapter, 1Mii Bluetooth 4.2 Adapter with 3D Surround aptX Low Latency for Home Music Streaming Stereo System (Upgraded Version with Power Adapter)" here on Amazon to receive that signal and ran it into the amp with a simple 3.5mm jack cable with RCA plugs at the end. RCA plugs go into one of the AUX pairs on the amp and the result is yet another fantastic sound coming from streaming - I could not believe how great it sounded. The streaming combo gear I described including a nice cable is less than the Audio BT-100 Cambridge sells and is more versatile to boot as it can be used with other gear should you choose.
To sum it all up, the best musical experience by far I have ever had in my life. If you want a gigantic step up in sound but don't have the big bucks to spend on the crazy high end audiophile stuff this will take you a long, long way toward music Nirvana. I know I have stopped looking because I seriously doubt I could improve on this without spending thousands of dollars more.
rear speaker bindings could be better but superb sound excellent bass and timing
and 3 digital options if you are thinking of getting Marantz 6006 spend a bit more and get this you will be more than happy I tried both
and this is far better
The high frequencies are that, high and CLEAR very CLEAR (let's be honest, an average person can hardly hear beyond 17KHz)
The low frequencies sound so deep even without the subwoofer, but this is highly recommended for the lower frequencies (Unless you have speakers with a wider frequency response).
My opinion is based on listening to 192kHz / 24bit songs (eg. Norah Jones, Hans Zimmer, Michael Jackson, etc ).
In conclusion, if you like to enjoy a good time listening to quality music, this amp is the choice.
Out of the box vocals looked laid back with recessed mid, but over the time it is improved.
The music is very engaging and pleasing to listen to, details are very good. Wolfson DAC seems to provide more detail and clarity than one in the Marantz.
I wished if this had a loudness function similar to PM6005.
Also the bass control doesn't seem to increase the bass as expected. The Users manual mentions the Max bass boost/cut +/- 10.5dB at 10Hz. 10 Hz. Is this true?
Its worth mentioning that the unit is pretty looking too.
The only criticism I have, although not a deal breaker, is the conspicuous absence of any feedback on the volume level . This is really something Cambridge Audio should reconsider. The tiny notch on the volume button is almost invisible and knowing more or less where you stand before you start listening could save your speakers if anyone played with the volume knob while you were not looking...
