I managed to get this from richer sounds in brum for the stupidly low price of £100 on an offer, was originally going to pair it up with some less expensive speakers but in the end i went for the Mordaunt Short 902i. Which leaves my system very similar to my brother's system which originally inspired me to splash out. I got this beast in black with black speakers to match, so apart from the sound, it looks schweeet. now i own this set up my itunes is never closed, and my room never silent. the 60 wpc is probs more than you will use, and the bass and treble response make you wonder if it really is worth going to the bathroom, when you could just stay here and ...

Sitting in storage at my Mum and Dads house is a lovely pair of KEF Q15.2 book shelf speakers which are waiting for me to get a place with more rooms in so I have some where to use them as at the moment I don't have the space for them. I always figured that when I get more rooms and more space (house deposit is being saved for like mad) They could replace my existing smaller surround speakers (Q85s for anyone that is interested) of maybe they could be the speakers for a nice second music system... I figured I could get myself a cheapish but decent amplifier and make a nice sounding system. I hadn't done anything about it but the idea has been with ... Read the complete review

A few years back I was putting together a small hifi system for my fiancée to use in her bedroom at the time. Not wanting to spend too much money, I looked at numerous reviews for budget amplifiers and, in the end, plumped for the Cambridge Audio A5. I teamed this with a pair of Cambridge Audio S30 bookshelf speakers and some good quality QED interconnects to her MP3 player and DVD. Strangely, I think I'll start with the limitations of the A5 - firstly, there's no remote. I guess it's down to individuals as to whether this is a negative or not, personally, I'd rather it had one. Secondly, there's no headphone socket. Yes, you can work around this in a variety ... Read the complete review

The Cambridge Audio A5 has been my first and only seperate amplifier. It does everything you would expect an amp to do - it amplifies. No, seriously, it is a very good amp and although some may say it is basic with very few adjustables, the genuine music lover knows that the more variables in the way of the function mean a lesser quality experience. Saying this, there are a few nobs to change the bass and treble, and a volume wheel aswell. The other controls are the balance and also one that controls which input you are using (CD, radio, mp3 etc). This is just how an amp should be and has 5 inputs in the back which I think is sufficient for most. The sound is down partly Read the complete review

Have had to put up with the tinny undefined sounds of a poor quality Goodmans midi system for nigh on 6 years, you can imaging my glee when I finally got round to purchasing my new separates system just before Christmas. The Cambridge Audio A5 was my choice amplifier, purchased from Richer Sounds for £119.95, a snip for such quality merchandise. Many of my friends have separates and all were envious of my purchase. It has a massive 60 WPC output, which is frankly far more than I needed, but it also ensures low down poke and high level crispness even a low volumes. With 8 inputs and bi-wirable capability for the speakers, few amps in this price ... Read the complete review
