While you’re planning that summer vacation, Cambridge Audio will be getting down to business—audio business. The company just announced a few upgrades to its lineup, which will be rolling out from now through July.
The company is about to start shipping its new Aeromax 2 bookshelf speakers and the Aeromax 6 floorstanding models. Both of the new speakers will get new gloss black and gloss white finishes, as well as a new construction, new specs, and new overall performance.
Both models have a full-range BMR (Balance Mode Radiator) driver paired with a dedicated bass subwoofer. This allows the crossover between the tweeter and mid/bass woofer to come all the way down to 250Hz, boasting an excellent bass response. It should be noted that this is the fourth generation of the BMR driver, which has a revised honeycomb structure for a smoother, more immersive sound.
Cambridge Audio also spruced up some of its AV receivers. The Azur 751R V2 includes two Texas Instruments 32-bit DSP chips and support for all of the latest codecs and formats, including 4K and 3D video. It boasts high-quality DACs, a dedicated USB input for your computer, an oversized toroidal transformer, and 200 watts per channel for a two-channel setup (and 120 watts with all 7 channels driven). Other features include Cambridge Audio’s proprietary ATF audio upsampling technology, six HDMI inputs, two HDMI outputs, and Audyssey’s 2EQ auto setup.
The company will also soon ship the Azur 551R V2, which has the 4K and 3D support, the latest Cirrus Logic dual 32-bit DSP chips, six HDMI inputs, and six RCA connections.
Cambridge Audio has listed May for the release of the Aeromax 2 and the Aeromax 6. Those are being sold in pairs for $749 and $1,499, respectively. The Azur 551R V2 will come along in June for $1,099, with the Azur 751R V2 following in July for $2,199.
The Azur 751R V2 can handle the latest codecs and formats, including 4K and 3D video.
