    Hi. I am thinking of buying the Cambridge Audio Azur 540R amp. It would be used mostly for listening to the TV as well as music CDs, and occasionally for DVDs. Can anyone who has the 540R please tell me what the sound quality is like when using it to hear TV audio or music?

    Also, does the 540R have any treble or tone controls? Many thanks.

    Well the limiting factor is the compression rate of the stream from the broadcaster. Personally TV audio sounds pretty much the same on any amplifier. The strong point of the 540R though is it's ability to play stereo music - its very very good in this regards. It does have tone controls (via remote).

    I bought the MS Genie set and I'm also thinking about the Azur 540R or the Jamo 693 or 793. Well, I have to :( , just see the end of this thread:

    But Marcie Boy, how you put it, the choice would be very simple:
    - All Amps are almost the same for movie
    - the Azurs play stereo music - its very very good

    You can do some basic audio switching.
    So it 6.1 is enough ... Azur 540R is the system to go for !!!

    Easy. (But I'm still not sure :clown: )

    But I also would like to hear some expierence about the 540R and Jamo set.
    Prices on the CA and Jamo sets I got today ... just look at the link above.
