Advantages: if you buy this amp then your life will be better, your life will be better.....etc
Disadvantages: reduced social life
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 listen to your tunes, even if it does mean sitting in a warm puddle.
In terms of controls, it gives a minimal more than you need, as it gives little but you wont want to adjust anything as it would be like poking Witney Houston and telling her to sing better, and yes, there is no remote, and it doesnt do that cool thing where you change the volume on the remote and the control moves on the amp, but why would you not want to touch this thing its beautiful!
err so you want one yet? you should! go to richer sounds right now and just buy it, screw the consequences, its fairly likely you wont want to go out anymore cos you can stay and listen to this, so you can save money on your social life, and when you are at home, you will probably eat a lot less because you wont be able to think about anything but music, so i would say you would have paid it off in a month. Anyway at this price its pretty much free, imagine if someone wanted to sell you a brand new ferrari enzo for £120, and maintain it for five years for £10, that enzo is in fact a Cambridge Audio A5, and that seller is richer sounds.
so yeh err get one.
Summary: its pretty much free!
