Cambridge Audio Edge M Monoblock Power Amplifier

$7,499.00

A totally refined monoblock power amplifier, with the power in reserve to drive even the most demanding of speakers.

Description

In the build-up to Cambridge Audio’s 50th anniversary, they asked their engineers a simple question – what would they make if anything was possible?

Forget cost. Forget limitations. Create a system that delivers previously undiscovered layers of detail, is highly transparent, offering superlative sound-staging. A product true to Cambridge Audio’s foundations of creative innovation and entrepreneurial ambition.

Over 3 years in the making, utilising a team of 9 engineers, the result is Edge.

Rediscover Music With Edge
Cambridge Audio’s most refined monoblock power amplifier, the Edge M offers the same rhythmic coherence and depth of image as the rest of the Edge range, but with the power in reserve to drive even the most demanding of speakers.

The Power to Deliver
A pair of Edge M Monoblock Power Amplifiers have the power in reserve to drive even the most demanding of speakers with punch and clarity. Because each Edge M is fully balanced from input to output, they are immune from noisy distortion and free to deliver your music exactly as the artist intended – nothing added, nothing taken away – whatever the volume.

Muscle With Finesse
As powerful as a pair of Edge M amplifiers can be, they remain remarkably detailed. The sound is finely balanced with a depth and clarity that comes through with every note. Cambridge Audio  developed the whole Edge system by carefully listening to each component and only choosing the ones that blew the designers away. Nothing was picked on price or specs. The end result is a power amplifier that brings the original recording to life in truly spectacular fashion.

Short and Sweet
Although minimal in its exterior design, Edge M has some complex audio engineering inside. To remove the barriers between you and your music, Cambridge Audio has worked hard to minimise the number of components in the signal path.

As a result, Edge M delivers a more faithful reproduction of the original recording; an impressively detailed three-dimensional sound, with striking staging and focus.

More Musical Detail
Cambridge Audio pioneered the use of toroidal transformers in amplifiers, which led to improved performance. In Edge they take this one step further, using opposing symmetry twin toroidal transformers. This cancels out electromagnetic interference whilst offering outstanding power and maintaining consistent tonality, no matter how loud it’s played.

Effortless Power Without Distortion
Using standard Class A amplifier technology wasn’t going to be efficient enough for Edge M. Instead Cambridge Audio 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.

Perfect Partners
Edge systems are designed to work in perfect synchronisation. Match a pair of Edge Ms with Cambridge’s most versatile Preamplifier Network Player, Edge NQ, to create a hi-fi system with a sound, and a look, unlike anything else.
