Just like our class-leading hi-fi systems, Cambridge Audio’s Sonata provides an explosive experience whatever music you’re into. But now, for the very first time, you can benefit from premium sound and legendary Cambridge Audio value from a new compact format.
At the heart of the Sonata system is a new noise-cancelling iPod dock. Specially developed to reveal nuances you’ve never before heard from your iPod, you’ll be blown away by 40 watts of roaring yet refined hi-fi power. Of course power is nothing without control and once again Sonata sets itself apart with its ability to connect and control virtually any iPod, iPhone or iPod touch.
And what’s more, you can also choose to add a matching 1080p upscaling DVD player for the crispest pictures and captivating soundtracks or opt for the Sonata CD player and revel in soul-warming hi-fi bliss.
The AR30 FM/AM integrated 2.1 receiver proves Sonata’s beauty is way more than skin deep. Using a substantial toroidal transformer and fully discrete amplification, this svelte receiver offers genuine hi-fi performance and an impressive 40 Watts per channel (8 Ohms) of controlled, refined power.
Complete iPod Integration Sonata’s custom-designed iPod dock can vastly improve your digital music thanks to Cambridge Audio’s quasi-differential noise cancelling technology.
Drawing every last drop of detail from your music collection, the neat yet sturdy dock accommodates any iPod and the supplied Navigator remote offers armchair control of your iPod, CDs, radio and amp controls. Other MP3 players can also be connected via the front connection and accessed using a dedicated ‘MP3’ source selector.
The on-board high sensitivity FM/AM tuners include twenty presets for instant access radio to stations. In addition, the North American version of Sonata is SIRIUS Ready. Simply purchase a SIRIUS tuner device in order to activate this amazing service.
Not only does Sonata perform superbly, it looks absolutely fantastic thanks to a stunning high-end brushed aluminium finish and is available in either black or silver.
And under the hood, micro surface-mount circuit technology further improves performance by reducing signal paths to the absolute minimum. This produces a highly detailed and rich soundstage – ideal for any room in the home and is perfectly developed to handle music and movies with aplomb.
