Edge W Hero

The best power-amplifier we have ever made.

Edge W is made to be played loud. When you do turn it up, expect nothing but a dynamic and punchy sound that captures all the musicality of your songs. With just 14 hand-picked components, Edge W has one of the cleanest signal paths available. It delivers our breath-taking, unadulterated British sound – nothing added, nothing taken away.

Edge W SS 1

Powerfully subtle.

For all its power, Edge W is remarkably detailed. The sound is finely balanced, with a musical depth and clarity that comes through with every note. It’s all down to how we chose the componentry inside – nothing was picked on price, specs or measured performance. We listened carefully. And created our system with components that simply sounded the best. The end result is a power amplifier that truly brings an original recording to life like no other.

Edge W SS 2

Just 14 components in the signal path.

Although minimal in its exterior design, Edge W has some complex audio engineering inside. To remove the barriers between you and your music, we have worked hard to minimise the number of components in the signal path. As a result, Edge W delivers a more faithful reproduction of the original recording; an impressively detailed three-dimensional sound, with striking staging and focus.

"…hier lebt der doppelte Glücksfall: Das Edge-Duo klingt superb und ist nicht übertrieben teuer." (Edge NQ + W)

Hi-Fi Choice

United Kingdom,

'Cambridge Audio has surpassed itself with the Edge NQ/W combination... lovely to look at, nice to use and packed to the gunwales with features.'

Fidelity

Germany,

„Die Kette besitzt eine geradezu unerhörte Musikalität, die nicht nur bei zackig-dynamischem Material zur Geltung kommt. Sie verleiht auch leisen Aufnahmen Charakter, Schwung und Seele.“
