Each of the two new products Cambridge Audio Evo 75 and Evo 150 can replace an entire audio set. Based on the proprietary streaming platform StreamMagic, they work with most current digital audio technologies. The list includes DLNA, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Roon, Chromecast, Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Qobuz, aptX HD Bluetooth, and Internet radio.
In addition, the Cambridge Audio Evo 75 and Evo 150 are equipped with proven Cambridge Audio Hypex nCore Class D amplifiers. Their power can be understood by the digital indexes of the models — 75 and 150 watts per channel, respectively.
The difference between the devices, however, does not end with power. The Evo 150 has an MM phono corrector, an asynchronous USB input, and balanced XLR inputs. In addition, the Evo 150 is equipped with not one, but two sets of speaker cable terminals — you can switch between two pairs of speakers.
Common interfaces for both new products include RCA, optical and coaxial inputs, and a 3.5 mm headphone output. There is also an HDMI ARC input for working with TVs.
The design of the Cambridge Audio Evo is based on a large double rotary regulator, which, together with the wooden sides of the case, is designed to resemble the company’s first product-the P40 amplifier of 1968. However, it’s clear that the 6.8-inch LCD panel doesn’t fit in that concept a bit. And the wooden sidewalls can be completely removed or replaced with more modern-looking ones. The second version of the side panels is made of innovative eco-friendly material Richlite – a product of waste paper recycling.
Both streamers will be available for sale in Europe and the United States within a month. In the US, the Cambridge Audio Evo 75 and Evo 150 will cost $2,250 and $3,000, respectively.
