True music lovers can and will play from a variety of different sources. As such, having a proper audio setup at home is pretty key. But, more often than not, having a comprehensive listening environment requires a number of separate devices: digital analog converter (DAC), amplifier, tuner, and CD player, to name a few. Sure, it’s not that big of a deal to connect all together, but why not simplify if you can?
Cambridge Audio has just announced its latest compact, all-inclusive music system for those wanting high-end sound. The One features multi-source playback in just one box, hence the name. Clever, yes? The Cambridge Audio One consolidates player, DAC, amplifier into one device with all the analog and digital connections a user would desire. Whether you prefer to run cables via RCA, USB, S/PDIF, or coax, or simply go wireless with Bluetooth, the One provides those options. Basically, you’d really have to do is add speakers.
If you’re in the market for some serious speaker power, Cambridge Audio has also has updated its Aeromax 2 & 6 bookshelf and floor standing speakers. The upgrades go both inside and outside. The construction and finish now sport a modern look, and the audio performance has been boosted by a full-range BMR driver and dedicated sub-woofer. This means that music output through the Aeromax will sound smoother and more natural.
The Cambridge Audio Aeromax 2 and Aeromax 6 speakers will be available by the end of May 2014, and the Cambridge Audio One is expected to be available by the end of June 2014.
