What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10 Powerful FM/ AM Stereo reciever
  • it sounds great with music playing, including a variety of genres.
  • I bought this recently and am impressed by the quality of the sound - while it is only 85 watts it still sounds clear nearly up to full volume.
  • Very happy with it. Terrific sound and quite powerful.
  • Excellent straight out of the box, warm,detailed and full of body
  • The amp sound is warm and is more than able to deal with the various genres of music that are played.
  • I was annoyed by the hum that is present immediately from powering up - this isn't the fan it has for cooling after longer periods of use, but an electronic hum.
Cambridge Audio Topaz SR20 Powerful Digital Stereo receiver (Black)
  • Since I've owned it I've tried it with several different speakers and found the receiver could drive them all with no problem.
  • The controls work smoothly, and the inputs are dead quiet; no hum, etc.
  • I would recommend it to anyone looking to replace a dead or aging machine. My jazz collection has never sounded better.
  • The sound is clear, pure, and balanced. The sound stage is amazing.
  • It has plenty of power. I was worried it would lack the warmth my Harman Kardon produced. Nope, it's better.

What customers say about "Features"
Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10 Powerful FM/ AM Stereo reciever
  • The tuner does exactly what its supposed to do. I've had this for a week.
  • I first used the tuner and was very satisfied with that. It also sounds good with my Yamaha CD player
  • The Phono input, in particular, seems well-designed.
  • Bought this recently to replace separate amp and tuner; delighted with simplicity of use and (as expected) quality of sound.
  • The FM signal is clear, CD's sound great and my vinyl collection sounds thoroughly rejuvenated.

  • Build quality appears to be excellent, using quality electronic components, and lots and lots of yummy metal.
  • The FM sounds very clean, there are multiple input options and specifically for turntable which is next on my list.
  • Considering that it has 100 watts, AM/FM tuner, AND a phono pre-amp, you would be hard pressed to find anything else that matches it in this price range.
  • Have set it up coupled with a Denon DP300 Turntable and sounds great.
  • Easy to set up the FM radio, speaker attachment was easy, plugged my Pioneer turntable with ease and wow the power this gives out is amazing.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10 Powerful FM/ AM Stereo reciever
  • I have it hooked up to four speakers and it sounds good
  • Was able to connect 2 sets of speakers and toggle between them ( one set in the kitchen 20m away).
  • Hooked the amp up to an Arcam CD player, Linn Speakers and a Sony TV.
  • Easy to set up. Combined with a Sony turntable and cambridge audio speakers, my music has never sounded so good.
  • Paired with HEOS Link and a pair of Monitor Bronze 2 speakers, this is giving a detailed and full sound across the many different styles of music I listen to.

  • This is an absolutely amazing receiver for the price. I use it with my Sony CD player and Warfedale Diamond 10.5 speakers, solely for listening to music, waiting to add the turntable.
  • It is incredible. No complaints. Can’t wait to hook up another pair of speakers to this sucker. Buy it!! You won’t regret it
  • I ran two sets of speakers with it and a digital / analog converter from my blue ray player. It can also run a sub woofer and there is plenty of power to spare.
  • Worked well with my JBL 250 watt speakers, and my turn table went strait in without a pre amp.
  • I can now use my dual speaker connections, one pair for base, one pair for treble, for the first time, once the cables are made.
