When we set about developing our 851 Series the brief was simple. To make a hi-fi that not only sounded better than anything else out there, but one that's flexible to meet the needs of every serious music lover. With this in mind, we created a system capable of delivering stunning results from all your music whether it's stored on computer, your home network, connected home entertainment devices or simply your favourite CD or vinyl!
Developed over a period of two years at Cambridge Audio's research and development centre in the heart of London, the new 851 Series offers the perfect balance of powerful detailed performance, the ability to deliver exceptional results from music of all formats and truly innovative features which give added pleasure to your listening experience.
Perhaps most importantly, the stunning 851 Series amplifier and combined DAC/CD Player/digital pre-amplifier were developed as a complete system with complementing features and synergies. Not only does this give you the very best balanced system, but one that's really easy to use despite its technical wizardry.
We believe that no amount of component design, scientific measurement or analysis can replicate the true judge of amazing sound - your ears. Faithful reproduction of your music is the most critical role of any Cambridge Audio product and this obsession with audio quality is etched deep within our DNA. We call this our Sound First approach to hi-fi separates design and believe it's what sets us apart from the herd.
