Cambridge Audio Alva Duo

Alot of Vinyl lovers forget the importance of a good phono stage in their system for making an ordinary system into an extraordinary one.

The phono stage does the crucial initial bit of amplification of the very low and sensitive electrical signal produced by the cartridge. Any adulteration in the signal here affects the whole chain.

Cambridge Audio have always seen the importance of the separate phono stage in a Vinyl lovers system and that's why they've always offered a range of high quality phono stages.

The new Alva Duo is capable of accepting Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridge inputs and its internal circuitry has been upgraded to further decrease the inherent noise floor in the unit. It's also undergone an aesthetic transformation keeping it in line with the sleek chassis of the new Cambridge Audio line. And to top it all off, it has a headphone output too. So listening to records up late without disturbing the rest of the household is now a none issue.

Product Description


Due to the low-level signals created by a turntable, not all hi-fi amplifiers will let you connect directly to a record player. The phono preamplifier boosts this signal to something a power amplifier can work with. The challenge at this stage though is that noise can easily be added.

This is why Cambridge Audio designed the Duo around exceptional components that deliver the warm and detailed sound that’s synonymous with vinyl, all without distorting the signal from your moving magnet cartridge turntable. The switch mode power supply improves performance by switching outside of audible frequency to drastically reduce hum and new circuit board layout uses surface-mount components to reduce noise.
