Anyone who says that all receivers sound the same hasn't heard Cambridge Audio's Azur 751R V2. The company's top-of-the-line A/V receiver delivers startling clarity and dimensionality, and nearly limitless dynamics. Whether your priority is high-resolution digital music, high-performance home theater, or both, the Azur 751R V2 is a hard-to-beat one-box component solution. For starters, you get potent, audiophile-quality amplification for seven speakers, plus decoding for the high-resolution surround sound formats available with today's HD video sources.
In stereo mode, you get a muscular 170 watts per channel. What always strikes me about the sound of Cambridge Audio's top receivers is an overall sense of ease and unflappable control that I generally associate with separates.
Digital upsampling ramps up musicality, stamps out jitter. The Azur 751R uses proprietary Adapted Time Filter (ATF) audio upsampling for improved sound quality from every digital source in your system. This sophisticated technology upsamples all incoming digital audio to a 192kHz/24-bit signal in order to resolve extremely fine detail, even from compressed music sources. At the same time, ATF incorporates a 32-bit digital signal processor that re-clocks the digital data to eliminate jitter the enemy of digital audio that causes harshness and loss of clarity.
Asynchronous USB input for way better sound from your computer. The Azur 751R V2 is one of the very few home theater receivers we've ever seen to include an asynchronous USB input for listening to digital music files on your computer.
Because even though today's digital music files can compete with (and even beat) CD sound quality, standard USB outputs from most computers pose a serious limitation to audio fidelity. While you're trying to listen to music, your PC is busy running background tasks that can introduce jitter, adversely affecting sound quality. The Azur 751R V2 eliminates these problems before they begin. It reaches out to your computer and takes control of the data stream timing. In its place, it inserts its own separate, or asynchronous, clock to precisely control the timing of the data, reducing jitter to the vanishing point.The result is improved detail along with a wider, deeper soundstage. The Azur 751R V2 supports files up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution over this USB connection. Connections for your favorite sources. HDMI inputs let you hook up your best high-def components for easy switching.
The 751R features two HDMI outputs. These can be used to run two displays at the same time; ideal if you have a screen in a second room, or want to use a projector for movies.
Plenty of sound setup choices, too. The Azur 751R V2 opens up many possibilities for the enjoyment of quality sound. The back surround channels are re-assignable for use with biamp-capable front speakers. By doubling the power to a pair of biampable speakers, you'll get stronger performance for surround sound, and especially for 2-channel music. And, if you have a Blu-ray player with multi-channel analog output, like Cambridge Audio's own Azur 752BD.
The 751R has a matching 7.1-channel preamp input. Or if you own separate amplifiers, you can use the 751R multichannel outputs to feed them seven channels of analog audio. Cambridge Audio's London-based engineering team designed the Azur 751R according to their usual high-end standards.
The seven discrete amplifiers are all powered off a beefy toroidal transformer to maintain rock-steady power throughout the fluctuating demands of any music or soundtrack. The low-vibration chassis features Cambridge's clever X-tract cooling system to minimize distortion and loss of efficiency caused by overheating.
A combination of natural convection and forced cooling draws away heat virtually silently. 170 watts per channel into 8 ohms (1k Hz) at 0.006% THD, with 2 channels driven.
120 watts per channel into 8 ohms (1k Hz) at 0.006% THD, with 7 channels driven. Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Pro Logic® IIx, and DTS Neo:6 decoding. 192kHz/24-bit audio Adapted Time Filter (ATF) upsampling technology delivers better sound with all your digital sources. Analog-to-HDMI video upconversion (up to 1080p) via Anchor Bay ABT2010 video scaler.
Audyssey Laboratories' 2EQ for easy speaker setup (microphone included). Audyssey Dynamic Volume mode to keep listening levels steady. Powered audio output for 2nd room (using powered 2nd-room output allows 5.1 home theater in main room). 2.1-channel line-level output for 2nd room (requires amplification for each channel). Pure Analogue Stereo Direct mode switches off all unused circuitry for the cleanest possible sound.Biamp capability with compatible front speakers by reassigning "surround back" channels. Dual Cirrus Logic dual 32-bit DSPs for outstanding sound quality for your hi-res music files. 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for all channels. HDMI 1.4a audio/video switching: 5 in, 2 out (an additional front-panel HDMI input is v1.3). Component video switching: 3 in, 1 out. HDMI inputs let you hook up your six best high-def components for easy switching. The 751R V2 features HDMI outputs. These can be used to run two displays at the same time; ideal if you have a screen in a second room, or want to use a projector for movies, but a TV screen for day to day use. For full flexibility, you can run an independent zone 2 output from the 751R V2 play audio and video in a second room and then watch or listen to different sources in both rooms. Cambridge Audio's Follow Main option lets you listen to the same digital source that is playing in the main room, in the second room (many receivers will only let you hear analog sources in the second room).
The 751R V2 has a matching 7.1-channel preamp input. Or if you own separate amplifiers, you can use the 751R V2's multichannel outputs to feed them seven channels of analog audio.
