Straight from the UK after a late 2011 release, the Azur 651A integrated amplifier runs at $899 and runs alongside its CD-playing brother, the 651C, for the same price. Both include high quality hi-fi components to match and top some of their rivals, including the latest in digital functionality.
Embracing the digital age in the same way the company has with its DacMagic digital-to-analogue converter (DAC), the 651C CD player is built with the company's latest DAC design borrowed from the DacMagic.
The 651A, on the other hand, has a USB input for streaming audio from a PC at 16bit/32kHz, 44.1kHz or 48kHz, improving your digital tracks as they run through the carefully crafted innards of the unit.
The 651A is built to perform across the soundstage with a separate transformer tap and power supply for the left and right channels, delivering top-notch stereo sound over 75 watts.
