The Cambridge AM10 is the amp many have been waiting for!
Like the AM1 and AM5, the AM10 offers an unbeatable blend of value for money and sound quality. In the case of the AM10, though, there's also considerable power to go with it. With a genuine 35W per channel, the AM10 will not only go louder than most of its direct rivals, it also offers a deeper, more extended bass response and the ability to drive "difficult" speaker loads.
Audiophile toroidal transformer
As you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, it's not just about the power, but the quality of sound, too. With a fully discrete power amplifier and oversized toroidal transformer, the Topaz AM10 sounds effortless, detailed and always in control of the music. Whatever the genre, the AM10 has a command of the music that's second to none at this price.
Five inputs mean you can connect all your favourite devices and there's even a built-in phono stage for instant turntable connection. In addition there's a mini jack connection on the front that's ideal for linking up your MP3 player or iPod. With all these inputs it's good to know where you are and the AM10's neat display gives full source and volume feedback. It's robust too, thanks to a brushed aluminium front panel and vibration-resistant casing.
For a budget Cambridge amp that goes a bit further, the AM10 is the best yet.
