Cambridge Audio. For People Who Listen.

Music lovers around the world are missing out. You’re missing out.

Poor quality sound systems are everywhere, polluting our world with noise. We’re forced to accept bad sound experiences as the norm, which means there are moments in your music, ideas from your favourite artists, that you’ve never felt in full. That’s a crime.

Music is ever present. It shapes who we are. It inspires us, changes us, moves us. We define ourselves through our musical tastes. So why do we let it be demeaned and devalued? Don’t we want to hear our music at its best?

Cambridge Audio want to save the world from shit sound. We want you to hear your music at it’s very best, as the artist intended it to be heard, with nothing added, nothing taken away. That’s what we’ve always wanted because that’s what music lovers like us deserve. It’s why we we’re constantly experimenting, solving problems and creating new kit. It’s why we’ve been doing what we do for the last 50 years. It’s why we’re always trying to make the listening experience better. Pure.

However you listen, whatever your budget, our goal is simple: Give you the best possible sound, at the fairest possible price.

-Great British Sound

Where it all began

/

In the 1960s three things happened simultaneously - British bands began to enjoy unprecedented global success, British studios led the way in recording technology and British manufacturers started to make the best hi-fi equipment in the world. Britain made a name for itself in all three areas but it was the studios and manufacturers that began to develop systems to capture and replay music as naturally as possible. Over time, this sound has become recognisably ‘British’. On with enjoying it.

This is the Cambridge Audio team. In each picture is our favourite moment in our favourite song. First and foremost, we’re all music lovers, musicians, and gig goers. It’s this passion that drives our desire to make sure our products make our moments sound exactly as they were made to be heard. Everything we do is driven by our love of music. We genuinely believe that great things happen when people who love music make audio products.

Giving

We feel it’s right to give something back, so we give 5% of our profits to charity. We always support any of our colleague’s personal efforts such as sponsored runs or rides and we do our own fundraisers such as our SE1 headphone campaign where customers could purchase our unique in-ear headphones for whatever price they wanted and every single penny went to the fantastic Youth Music charity.

-The environment

Commitment to the environment

/

We take our commitment to the environment very seriously and even more importantly, our responsibility to anyone involved in the production and distribution of our products. We only work with partners who share our commitment to protect and preserve the environment. This specifically includes compliance with local government laws and international standards.

We minimise the effects of our business on the environment by encouraging the recycling and re-use of components and reducing the amount that is sent landfill sites. We even stopped printing service manuals to save on the paper! Whilst we endeavour to ensure our customers have many years of fault-free product ownership we have a corporate responsibility to encourage our consumers to recycle old products so as to reduce damage to the environment.
