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.

Audio Art 音響論壇年度器材風雲榜

Taiwan,

Best Value of The Year 2019
 

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,

'We never doubted for a moment that Cambridge Audio can meet the demands of the high-end class. The components of the 851 series already show how much flair for musicality and balanced tonal balance the British have developed. But the Edge combination offers much more than that.'

Audio Art 音響論壇

Taiwan,

「英國Cambridge Audio從1968年創立迄今,一直以「英國之聲」自傲,同時也以大家都能買得起的訂價政策行銷。現在,他們打破50年來不變的作法,推出向創辦人之一致敬的產品。設計的指令是不計成本,只求最好。不過,它們的售價依然維持在大家能夠負擔的範圍內,值得向他們致敬。」

Hong Kong SAR China,

「封面故事」推介英國 Cambridge Audio Edge NQ 網絡播放器兼前級放大器 + 兩台同廠 Edge W 立體聲功率放大器,bi-amp 驅動 B&W 802D3 揚聲器,三大件 Edge 旗艦級傑作聲音細緻、感情豐富、音樂感動人,而且性價比極高(三件合計共 8 萬餘元),值得推薦。」
