Product Description

If you love your music, choosing a mini hi-fi system traditionally involves a significant compromise. Stylish all-in-one solutions can look OK but ultimate performance and sound quality are all too often lacking. Not with Cambridge Audio ONE!

Overview

The Cambridge Audio ONE is the latest mini hi-fi system creation from the masters of entry-level audio gear. If you're after a system that can handle your digital and analogue sources plus still sound great and not take up too much room, then this is it. Despite its compact size, the Cambridge Audio ONE boasts a powerful  2 x 30 Watt amplifier that can fill a small to medium sized room with ease. Unlike most of the competition, the 30 Watt power rating is quoted at 8 Ohms and not 4 or even 6 Ohms, making it genuinely as powerful as many budget separate amplifiers. As you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, the quality is top notch, too. An oversized toroidal power transformer provides effortless power and dynamics while selected components ensure a low distortion, natural sound quality.

Speakers: The description here includes Cambridge Audio's own MINX XL speakers which are a cut-above the norm. In selecting the drive units for the MINX XL's, Cambridge Audio have put sound quality ahead of all other considerations. For this reason, the drive units may not look especially impressive but they do sound it! A silk dome tweeter gives the ideal combination of crisp detail with a smooth refined sound - the ideal compliment for many budget amplifiers. Matching this is a custom-designed woofer with a treated paper cone. Although this might sound basic, the material helps give the MINX XL speakers a fast, responsive sound quality with excellent bass timing.

The cable terminals are chunky enough to accept thick cables and are also gold-plated for a lower resistance connection. High quality sound through attentive design: the Cambridge Audio MINX XL speakers make music matter.

Premium DAC Technology - Hear Every Detail With Your Favourite Music: In addition to the high quality amplification, the ONE features impressive digital components. A premium Wolfson DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) ensures that, whatever the digital source, the ONE will do its very best in producing the highest quality audio available at its price.

Bluetooth Streaming: Thanks to Bluetooth streaming you can connect up a whole host of sources and stream a huge range of music. Connect your smartphone or tablet and, as well as just your stored music library, you can take advantage of streaming music services such as Spotify. Alternatively, connect your compatible PC, Mac or Laptop by Bluetooth and access a potentially huge range of stored music.

Rear Panel USB Audio: For the highest quality sound from your PC or laptop, there's a USB Audio connection available. This bypasses the soundcard in your computer and uses the superior processing power of the ONE for superb sound quality. In addition to this, a second USB is also provided for charging your mobile devices.

Optical And Coaxial Digital Inputs: Making the most of the superior quality built-in DAC is easy thanks to both optical and coaxial digital inputs. Connect up your games console, TV, set-top box, Blu-ray player or a myriad of other devices with digital outputs for the highest resolution, digital sound quality. In addition to these sockets the ONE also provides a front-mounted, 3.5mm socket and 1 pair of RCA line-level jacks at the rear for any line-level sources you may have.

Note: The ONE does not have a dedicated phono input. If you wish to play vinyl records you will need either a Record Player with a built-in phono pre-amp or a separate phono pre-amp with RCA cables.

CD Player And DAB Radio: As well as a comprehensive range of connectivity, the ONE system also features an impressive sounding single CD player. As you'd expect from Hi-Fi experts like Cambridge Audio, the CD player is of premium quality. Making use of the excellent Wolfson DAC, the sound quality is dynamic and precise, yet never harsh. The player is also compatible with discs containing MP3 and WMA audio files. The ONE also comes equipped with a top notch radio tuner which has both the latest DAB+ and FM tuners, thus giving you the choice of listening to a wide range of radio stations whether analogue or digital, national or local.

Superior Build Quality: Cambridge Audio are well renowned for their quality construction and the ONE system is no exception. The all metal casing is both low resonance and rigid; ideal for reducing the chances of mechanical or electrical interference. Supplied with the unit is a solid and easy to operate Navigator remote that gives total control over all features and all from the comfort of your favourite sofa ... or bed. 

Our Take

You won’t believe your eyes – or ears! – when you see how much the One system manages to achieve from it's small frame. The muscular 30 Watt per channel integrated amplifier matched to a premium-grade front load CD player with repeat, shuffle and track programme functions is quite amazing. It also handles discs containing WMA and MP3 files offering full text readout. With all this and much more, the One system offers a unique blend of true hi-fi performance, styling and with the MINX XL speakers truly incredible value. We, not Cambridge also include 4 metres of QED 42 Speaker cable. If you want a little more, just give us a call and we can make an adjustment.
