CONCLUSION

I suspect AV enthusiasts will wonder why Cambridge Audio charge double for a player that offers analogue stereo. It’s a good question. But you also get many other twiddly bits, like e-SATA input not available on the less costly 650BD and that would swing it for me as it allows computer stored high definition video to be played through the system without burning a Blu-ray or hooking up the camcorder direct.

 

As an analogue stereo CD player for serious audio use I wasn’t overly impressed, preferring quality from S/PDIF. But as a high quality Blu-ray player of tremendous ability able to play just about anything except LP, there’s little to touch the 751BD. It has a great performance, more ability and facilities than most players out there and a handbook able to explain it all in reasonably understandable English. And that is unique!

 

verdict five globes

Superbly capable player with extraordinary range of abilities and a great all round performance. An audiophile dream, but expensive.
