In the 1960s three things happened simultaneously – British bands began to enjoy unprecedented global success, British studios led the way in recording technology and British manufacturers started to make the best hi-fi equipment in the world. Britain made a name for itself in all three areas but it was the studios and manufacturers that began to develop systems to capture and replay music as naturally as possible. Over time, this sound has become recognizably ‘British’.
Our drive to produce audio equipment that faithfully creates a pure and natural sound has seen us at the forefront of audio innovation over the decades. Thanks to our in-house design and engineering teams, Cambridge Audio proprietary technologies are only found in our own products.
Poor quality sound systems are everywhere, polluting our world with noise. We’re forced to accept bad sound experiences as the norm, which means there are moments in your music, ideas from your favorite artists, that you’ve never felt in full. That’s a crime.
Music is ever present. It shapes who we are. It inspires us, changes us, moves us. We define ourselves through our musical tastes. So why do we let it be demeaned and devalued? Don’t we want to hear our music at its best?
Cambridge Audio want to save the world from shit sound. We want you to hear your music at it’s very best, as the artist intended it to be heard, with nothing added, nothing taken away. That’s what we’ve always wanted because that’s what music lovers like us deserve. It’s why we we’re constantly experimenting, solving problems and creating new kit. It’s why we’ve been doing what we do for the last 50 years. It’s why we’re always trying to make the listening experience better. Pure.
However you listen, whatever your budget, our goal is simple: Give you the best possible sound, at the fairest possible price.
