Music With Edge

In the build-up to the Cambridge Audio 50th anniversary, they asked their engineers a simple question – what would they make if anything was possible?

Forget cost. Forget limitations. Create a system that delivers previously undiscovered layers of detail, is highly transparent, offering superlative sound-staging. A product true to Cambridge Audio’s foundations of creative innovation and entrepreneurial ambition. Over 3 years in the making, utilising a team of 9 engineers, the result is Edge.

 

EDGE NQ

Impressively revealing.
With a revolutionary preamp circuit-board that reduces interference and an incredibly clean signal path, Edge NQ plays your favourite music with astonishing depth. Stream, cast, plug-in and play to enjoy every note in perfect clarity.

All the sources.
Edge NQ lets you enjoy music from any source. As well as digital coaxial, HDMI, USB and S/PDIF connections, there’s also Chromecast built-in, Spotify Connect, AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX HD and Internet Radio. Wherever songs are played from, Edge NQ stays true to the character of every instrument and uncovers a musicality you’ve never heard before.

Astonishing digital detail.
With a wealth of connections including digital coaxial, ARC (Audio Return Channel), USB and S/PDIF, the engineers have ensured that all of your digital content can be enjoyed, at up to 32bit/384kHz and DSD 256. Edge NQ offers an incredibly revealing sound that has detailed tone, rhythmic drive and taut bass.

Sonic balance.
Edge NQ was designed with a unique PCB. The engineers replaced conventional capacitors with a DC coupled topology and also added a solid state volume control. The end result is a clean signal path that’s perfectly balanced at any volume.

Award-winning streaming software.
Edge NQ boasts the very latest version of the award-winning Cambridge Audio streaming module. Designed in-house, right here in the UK, it features a new, faster chipset and support for both 24bit/192kHz and DSD128 files. The addition of Spotify Connect, AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX HD and Internet radio means you can enjoy your music whatever the source.

Chromecast built-in.
Edge NQ has Chromecast built-in. Just tap the cast button in your favourite app to stream music from your smartphone, tablet or laptop in stunning high definition sound, up to 24bit/96kHz.

Perfect partners.
Edge systems are designed to work in perfect synchronisation. Match the Edge NQ with the high performing power amplifier Edge W, to create a hi-fi system with a sound, and a look, unlike anything else.
