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 W

Edge W is made to be played loud. When you do turn it up, expect nothing but a dynamic and punchy sound that captures all the musicality of your songs. With just 14 hand-picked components, Edge W has one of the cleanest signal paths available. It delivers the breath-taking, unadulterated British sound – nothing added, nothing taken away.

Powerfully subtle.
For all its power, Edge W is remarkably detailed. The sound is finely balanced, with a musical depth and clarity that comes through with every note. It’s all down to how Cambridge Audio chose the componentry inside – nothing was picked on price, specs or measured performance. Cambridge Audio listened carefully. And created a system with components that simply sounded the best. The end result is a power amplifier that truly brings an original recording to life like no other.

Just 14 components in the signal path.
Although minimal in its exterior design, Edge W has some complex audio engineering inside. To remove the barriers between you and your music, the engineers worked hard to minimise the number of components in the signal path.

As a result, Edge W delivers a more faithful reproduction of the original recording; an impressively detailed three-dimensional sound, with striking staging and focus.

More musical detail.
We pioneered the use of toroidal transformers in amplifiers, which led to improved performance. In Edge we take this one step further, using opposing symmetry twin toroidal transformers. This cancels out electromagnetic interference whilst offering outstanding power and maintaining consistent tonality, no matter how loud it’s played.

Effortless power without distortion.
Using standard Class A amplifier technology wasn’t going to be efficient enough for Edge W. Instead we added a bias voltage to a traditional Class AB design, reducing distortion to inaudible levels. This unique configuration also produces less heat and makes the whole system much more effective.

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