"Five Stars" from What Hi-Fi? Magazine
The stylish and punchy S30 heralds Cambridge Audio's loudspeaker revival. The R50 and R70 were highly regarded speakers in the 1970s, and like its predecessors the new S30 offers excellent depth and soundstage, yet extraordinary value for money.
"These are highly accomplished speakers, with a winning mix of punch and detail," reports the July 2007 issue of England's What Hi-Fi? magazine. "They’re classy-looking, sound superb, and offer an intriguing alternative to the established favorites at this level."
Designed from the ground-up, the S30 is a delicately revealing speaker which is the perfect partner to Cambridge Audio's array of electronics products, working particularly well with the mid range Azur series for the perfect budget package.
Powerful Yet Controlled Performance
A 4.5" composite woven driver delivers a powerful yet controlled bass performance while offering extremely low distortion and excellent dispersion of higher frequencies.
This is matched to a 1" soft-dome tweeter featuring a neodymium driver with a state-of-the-art motor system and a critically selected voice coil assembly.
By virtue of a purist mechanical design, a simple first order crossover is capable of perfectly controlling high and low frequency distribution. This custom designed component features audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors and enables the S30 to be bi-wired for greater bass control, crisper treble and improved detail.
The ported cabinet design is braced and stiffened for minimum movement and features a neat terminal panel with three-way gold plated bullet connectors.
Finished in matte black, the S30 is supplied with a complementary grille.
