Cambridge Audio continues to meet the needs of audiophiles at all levels and the 740A is no exception. The Azur 740A offers true hi-fi quality but at a fraction of the cost. Indeed the technology in the 740A is normally only used in products costing many times more. The 740A is the latest in Cambridge Audio’s Azur series of integrated amplifiers. Using technology from both the top-of-the-range 840A powerhouse and a new evolution of the highly regarded amplifier circuitry used in the 540A/640A V2, the 740A is set to rejuvenate the mid price sector. The amp puts out an impressive 100W RMS into 8 Ohms and with two pairs of output transistors per channel has enough peak current capability to get the best from even ‘difficult’ speakers. A large front panel allows for assignable inputs to be displayed and sophisticated software afford a plethora of features.
