Product Description

The Cambridge Audio SR-20 Stereo Receiver combines the best of Cambridge Audio's separate components for an astonishing result — a Stereo Receiver that combines remarkable performance, simple operation and a very modest price tag.

Overview

The Cambridge Audio SR20 stereo receiver combines a well-equipped and powerful amplifier with an excellent quality FM/AM RDS tuner. Putting the tuner to one side for the moment, the SR20 is a pretty impressive amplifier in its own right. A high quality, discrete design amplifier is powered by an oversize toroidal transformer. This quality of componentry is usually reserved for more expensive amplification and helps give the SR20 a class-leading power output of 100 Watts per channel - and, yes, that is in to an 8 Ohm load, so there's no 'massaging' of figures here! Such effortless power gives the Cambridge Audio SR20 the ability to drive a wide range of speakers to high volume levels, even in larger than average rooms. Alternatively, two sets of outputs make it possible to run a second set of speakers, simultaneously, in another room.

In addition to the two sets of speaker outputs, the SR20 also features four, line level, inputs and an output for recording. There's also a good quality MM phono stage built-in, meaning that you can connect up a turntable without the need for a separate phono pre-amp. At the front there's an input for an MP3 player or iPod and a full-size headphone socket. In short, the Cambridge SR20 has everything you need to form the basis of a complete hi-fi system. CD, TV, turntable and Blu-ray or games console can all be plugged in around the back with your headphones and MP3/iPod slotting in at the front.

AM/FM Radio: The SR20 stereo receiver is equipped with a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 30 AM/FM stations. The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations. Included is an external indoor AM loop antenna and FM wire antenna.

Note: The quality of AM (Amplitude Modulation) reception varies on your location; time-of-day; weather; station output and distance from the AM transmitter. FM (Frequency Modulation) typically has a range of 80km and is affected by hills and large buildings. An external or dedicated antenna will be required if you experience poor sound. The product is not deemed 'faulty' if you experience poor reception due to any of the above scenarios. And, the better or more costly the Receiver, the more the pronounced the problem can be. If radio, particularly AM Radio, is important to you, then consider connecting an optional AM antenna (Click here for PK AM Antenna Website for details) to achieve better AM reception, or buy a Network Receiver where you can enjoy over 100,000 stations (inc AM & FM) via the Internet. FM reception can be improved if you connect it to a TV antenna with FM capability.

Rounding off this well-balanced receiver is a full function remote control. Should you match up a Cambridge Audio CD player, DVD or Blu-ray, the SR20's remote will work those, too.

Our Take

Built to Cambridge Audio's usual high standard, the Topaz SR20 is also far better made than the class average. A high rigidity metal casing with brushed aluminium front panel looks and feels a lot more luxurious than thin steel case and plastic front panel that's more common from rival receivers. If you've always admired the sound, build quality and value of Cambridge Audio amplifiers but have sought a built-in tuner or more power, then the Cambridge Audio Topaz SR20 is for you!
