"There are far too many preamps to mention even in the 500 series alone, but few are this well built or designed, few sound this clean and quiet, and very few have this much sonic versatility."
The Cranborne Audio Camden 500 is the most astoundingly clean, linear, transparent preamp you’ve ever heard. It also has “Mojo” - 2 discrete custom analogue saturation circuits that can be applied, exaggerated, and bypassed. It receives a fantastic review in the latest issue of Sound On Sound magazine.
"Designed from the ground up with some genuine innovation, this preamp offers supreme technical precision and high-end transparency, but also attractively characterful recordings, courtesy of the ability to tune and shape the recording as the situation demands."
"I was immediately attracted to the Camden 500 because of its spacious, simple front-panel layout, and when I discovered the switched gain control I was smitten. But after listening to it and experimenting with the Mojo facility, I was completely sold. This really is a very impressive new preamp - both from the point of view of its sonics and the physical experience of adjusting the controls."
"That it's British-designed and built to very high standards, looks attractive, feels great to use, and is priced very competitively make this a very impressive first offering from Cranborne Audio. In short, this is how I'd design and build a quality preamp! I really can't wait to see what else will emerge from this stable in the near future."
The Cranborne Audio Camden 500 is also available now priced at £299 RRP inc VAT.
