The Topaz CD10 is an excellent entry-level CD player. It complements the AM10 brilliantly, perfect for the discerning ear on a budget. "rock-solid units that provide a rewarding array of the musical thrills
and finesse you'd expect when getting started in the high end. No little
leaguers here." -The Absolute Sound September 8th, 2010, Neil Gader
Topaz is a new line of excellent value separates designed from the ground-up in the UK, designed to break you into the world of hi-fi without breaking the bank. With a range of powerful iPod/MP3 supporting amplifiers, an integrated receiver and feature-brimming CD players, Topaz can make a cost-effective contribution to your setup regardless of what format you prefer, and you won’t be skimping on top-notch sound.
With a highly-regarded premium Wolfson Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC), a superior servo system and precision transport, the CD10 will harness every drop of information from your favorite discs and deliver an uncompromised signal to your matching Topaz amplifier.
The CD10 is simply poles apart from its rivals thanks to genuine hi-fi circuitry to truly enhance your music experience. Key to these is double-sided surface-mount technology, which has enabled Cambridge Audio’s engineers to employ much shorter signal paths for improved precision and clarity.
