Cambridge Audio Evo, The Evolution Of Hifi

15 April 2021



The Evolution of Hi-Fi

Evolution means transformation. Evolution means improvement. Evolution means progress.

At Cambridge Audio, it means hi-fi ready for today, able to fit into your lifestyle and made to look as good as it sounds. It means taking over 50 years' worth of audio expertise and fitting it all into a single revolutionary product.

It means Evo.

We’ve developed Evo so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

You can enjoy our incredible, full-on hi-fi sound, with all its precision, scale and emotional expression. But you can also enjoy this extraordinary sound quality from a compact, convenient, good-looking all-in-one system.

Evo is a huge step forward.

Cambridge Audio - Ged Martin - Evo Product Designer

Minimal, timeless design

When Ged Martin sat down in our London studio to design Evo, he was determined to sketch a product design that will endure for many years. Ged knows simplicity is the most elegant aspect of industrial design, and Evo demonstrates his mastery of form and line.

He designed a product that looks classically timeless.

Choice of side panels included

Our story started with the iconic P40 amplifier. So, using the P40’s wood trim as inspiration, Ged incorporated beautiful, tactile walnut side-panels into his elegant design.

Evo’s use of premium materials includes a choice of side panels, designed to accentuate the timeless simplicity of Evo’s design and compliment your lifestyle.

Heritage and the evolution of hi-fi

We've been designing and building outstanding audio equipment for over 50 years. In that time, fashion in hi-fi has changed just as surely as fashion in music - but we’ve always been at the cutting edge.

So, we think Evo is not only the best-sounding all-in-one player you can buy, its design looks to the future at the same time as acknowledging our rich legacy.

High-quality hi-fi sound

Both Evo 150 and Evo 75 use revolutionary Hypex NCore Class D amplification - it’s rated at 150 watts per channel in Evo 150, and 75 watts per channel in Evo 75.

Until Hypex NCore changed the game, Class D amplification was only about compactness and electrical efficiency - but Hypex NCore also offers obvious superiority where clarity, resolution and outright musicality are concerned.

It’s a big part of what makes Evo such an enjoyable and convincing listen.

Voiced in London

Even the best components don’t deliver incredible sound all by themselves. Our engineering team spent hundreds of hours in our London laboratory, poring over every detail of the way Evo makes music until they were completely satisfied.

Because if our engineers aren’t satisfied, they don’t think you will be either.

StreamMagic built in

The convenience of music streaming is obvious - but unless it sounds great, what’s the point?

Our in-house engineers designed StreamMagic to be the best-sounding streaming platform around - and 10 years into its development, that’s exactly what we think it is.

StreamMagic is constantly evolving to accept new formats and services, which means it should always be the perfect way to stream digital music.
