    Purchased in December 2006, a problem reading from the first use: some CDs were detected correctly, but the majority was not detected and CDs were no longer detected thereafter. The CD detected were read normally, and the player worked several hours without problem. FYI, the CD that did not work at home went smoothly from a reseller with the same model.

    Back in SAV 2 days ago: I have not had time to test it much, it seems OK except for one CD that I had to put a second time for it to be detected. This last point concerns me because it is the nature of the problem I had before.

    What I like: the two levels of backlighting, and the ability to cut it (practice not to be distracted). The f…

    What I like: the two levels of backlighting, and the ability to cut it (practice not to be distracted). The figures in the play time is read (at 3.30 m).
    The remote is pretty simple and complete.
    For sound, I confess not to have made comparisons with other readers. I chose it for its good reviews in the press, and I felt good listening to the tests I did.

    Given the concerns I had (and I may still have), I do not buy a player cambridge or other material that mark with moving parts. A reader who also appears unreliable to € 500, it will not at all!
    If you buy it, my advice is to buy this player from a dealer near you in case he should return it and test it with up to CD.

    J bought a platinum 640C in January 2007 and one month later on a CD 3 was not detected and sometimes the plate was as advanced as fast. After 1 month of waiting to fix the problem has again three months later jusqu'un day when the plate are reading any CD.
    After negotiation with the dealer agrees to give a new m. One week after the new platinum 640C has a similar problem, it does not detect a 1 Cd 2 (only original CDs).
    I am very much of my amp SATIF Cambride A500 as it is a platinum inaceptable € 500 can not function properly.

    I use this board for the past six weeks.

    So the sweaty palms that I dballe the object in question.
    First point: In addition to its weight consquent, the finish is of a faade beautavec solid aluminum, the same as the cheeks and the top comes s'inserrer distinguishing between those cts. .. The only connection is complte and tlcommande the most beautiful effect.
    Move on to more important: the sound.
    I will be frank: a new AZUR 640V2 ... At the time, a wave of disappointment came over me ...
    So Important note: the sound s'panouit after a few hours, it is important not s'inquiter. Moreover, the effect is striking because there is an opening rosebud Sound ... The scene clot in a few minutes.Une rvlation.
    Today I am a user fills its plate, and also by its speakers (Junk cabasse 300) but less so by his party amplification, an Onkyo TX-SR 702nd THX (yes, this is an excellent audio- video but a little less pure hi-fi ...)
    That said, I look very srieusement buying a good stereo amp.
    Why?
    Because I had the opportunity to test the plate on an electronic LINN pregnant with FOCAL (JM LAB, custom made by a brother ingnieur acoustics of the person with whom j'tais) and in seconds of costs on loreena MacKennitt (whose voice m'meut always be the bottom of my) or "UP" by Peter Gabriel (and other tests that my cd get me near that total 3 hours of cost) I can say I had a great moment of motion. It has enormous potential.
    And to reassure other potential buyers, I have not had a single problem since the reliability of dbut.Je DSOL am for people who left a mixed review on their exemplaire.J 'would ragi Manir this too.
    It works at least an hour a day and despite my amplifier (very dynamic, either, and Retailer still missing but soft and round I enjoy listening.
    I should soon be able to continually test the platinum speaker SEAS / VIFA made by a former professional in the electronic LEEDH of Vector Saliva ... and I dja! ..
    It's a choice I would do probably because it's pitch MRIT 2006 Gold, despite the profusion of technology, diverse electronic, converters and the whole shebang, the most important, the essence m my hi-fi Is not and still does not sound?
    In this area, this plate is the dtour.Chaleur, arati, presence, neutrality and time ... How do they do at C-audio? .. There is the Sword in the Stone- below ...

    For me, close to 500 euros, a sum consquente remains, but it seems justifi ...

    Only downside: You have to get the switch behind the plate if we want the teidre completement.A time nergtique the economy, a diode facade stays on steady me drang a few ... What makes me not to 10/10, but 9 / 10 vis vis the manufacturer.

    Otherwise, for info so I saw the shot roll pastry ...

    It's funny: I happened the same adventure, one hour after the start of a copy that I had just bought. The first half hour, so good. Then I put it out for dinner. After dinner, I want to listen to a piece of Chopin and there, nothing: the LEDs are lit, the CD (CVS 640 Cambridge, as well) runs obviously, but no sound comes out! I turn off both devices, the on again, nothing to do. The CAP5 does not blink either. I drop. I turn it off again and will take my shower, getting ready to go to sleep. However, puzzled, before going to bed (and to sleep in peace), I make a last attempt: I turn once again the two devices (the player and the amp) and then, lo and behold, the LED drive Cd located on the …

    It's funny: I happened the same adventure, one hour after the start of a copy that I had just bought. The first half hour, so good. Then I put it out for dinner.

I turn off both devices, the on again, nothing to do. The CAP5 does not blink either. I drop. I turn it off again and will take my shower, getting ready to go to sleep. However, puzzled, before going to bed (and to sleep in peace), I make a last attempt: I turn once again the two devices (the player and the amp) and then, lo and behold, the LED drive Cd located on the front of the amp turns off and the amp starts to smell burning! I unplug everything at once and go to bed, determined to bring it for service. What do you imagine that it happened the next morning? I do a final test before packing up for the service and to be there, divine surprise, he starts to walk normally for hours. The sound is there, and the smell of scorched disappeared. I did not understand and still do not understand what could happen. Since I live in fear. And I do not know if the problem is with the receiver or reader AV2 640 640 CVS. I would tend to an amplifier problem. And I can not recommend it for purchase under these conditions. Regards.

    cambridge: not made to last

    Very big disappointment on the quality of this product.

    disappointment measured as follows:
    - After 3 years: power completely off. Cost of repair 140 euros
    - 2 years later (ie now), the drawer and the electronic management of the latter is down. Repair estimate 180 to 220 euros.

    The use was regular and average (4 hours per week on average)

    price / quality ratio = close to 0 / 10
    I can not redeem more products Cambridge.
