Audiofanzine FR's review

Cambridge Audio 540C
(Originally written by capitaine.h/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
- How long have you been using it?

I bought in April 2005. Broken in August 2006 and repaired by the dealer. Broken again a few months latter.

Broken for good since yesterday.

Detailed information about the problem: eject button doesn't work properly, CD tray doesn't open, CDs don't always play.

- Which feature do you like the most / the least?

Very good sound.

- Did you try any other models before buying it?

Mainly Denon and Nad I could buy with my budget

- How would you rate its value for money?

Bad because of the reliability problems I had.

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

I don't think so... I'm very disappointed by its reliability but I still haven't found a device that sounds better in this price range. For example, I tested today a Nad C515 and the sound quality didn't convince me. And I don't want to buy a new one every three years...

Summary: I love how it sounds but it is not reliable at all.

Cambridge Audio 540C
- How long have you use it?

Purchased 04/2005. Down in August 2006 and repaired by the dealer. Re-down a few months later.
Definitely down since yesterday.
Details of failure: dysfunction that eject buttons, drawer does not open, and finally a CD that are read once in a while and then need to tap the tray to the CD to be "hung".

- What is so special that you like most and least?

The sound suits me particularly.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

Essentially Denon Nad and who were in the budget set at the time (less than 400 €)

- How would you rate the quality / price?

Bad because of the many reliability problems encountered.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I do not think, but the question of the day ... I am extremely cooled reliability problems encountered but I do currently no equivalent sound in these budgets. I tested today the Nad C515 for example and I am not convinced. And then € 380 every 3 years ... It does not suit me.

In summary: I love the sound, but it is not reliable.
