Cambridge Audio has been designing, engineering and manufacturing value-minded high performance products for years and the British company’s latest product supports the company’s reputation in the marketplace by providing dealers with a $1,250 performance-oriented universal disc player.

The newly released Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD universal disc player’s audio capabilities are supported by five Wolfson WM8740 digital-to-analog converters (DACs), an Analog Devices’ A DSP-21261 32-bit processor that’s executing Anagram Q5 software that upsamples up to 24-bit/192kHz for all 10 channels, and built-in Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. The player’s video functions are driven by Marvel’s DE2750 video processing chipset, 1GB of internal memory, wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity and Ethernet capabilities. 

Cambridge says the unit can play Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, DVD-video, DVD-Audio, SACD, CD, HDCD, CD-R, CD/RW and other formats, and its dual HDMI 1.4 outputs, as well as dual USB connection ports provide a choice of connection and technology options.
