    Hi folks

    I just got my Azur 540R set up (well installed anyway) and I gotta give this amp some credit.

    I have been relying on my old Yamaha DSPA1092 now for going on 8 years or so and was very happy with it - but lack of DTS etc made me decide to upgrade.

    Well, I no longer have the budget I used to and buying M&K K5's (to match my VF75 sub I have had for years) wiped me out a bit.

    Anyhoo, I went with the azur so I could do music too, plus I like the look of it. It looks good on my new chrome and glass rack.

    This post is pretty worthless lol but I just wanted to say I realy do like this amp - its musical and a FANASTIC performer in DTS/DD modes considering the price. Hell, its better than my Yam was and that was near a grand when I bought it.

    So if you have a limited budget go take a test drive of this amp - you will find it time well spent. The only real niggles I have so far are that you cant select a source directly from the remote - you have to cycle through them and the manual is pathetic! I do hope Cambridge Audio release a new manual for download soon.

    Take care folks and have fun!

    Cambridge said they are about to release a proper manual on their website. Wait and see...

    Just a question: many users of this amp have reported issues when connected by coax or optical with a source (CD or DVD), where the amp would show "unlock" and a "tic" sound can be heard from the speakers at a beginning of a track or when you change track manually,...

    Do you have this problem?

    You should get the problem on a DVD while changing layer or during the menus.
    Basically, whenever there is a change in the audio stream as the 540R seems to take loose the signal for about 1s.

    But maybe it has been fixed, hopefully...

    yes the receiver does this but the ticking noise is very low & the sound is only lost for about a second - its not something that bothers me that much and is very minor issue for me (it would be nicer without it though).
