Overview: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier is equipped
with a full discrete 2-channel power amplifier. The AM10 integrated amplifier
can support a wide range of external audio sources thanks to 5 rear-panel analog
stereo inputs and a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input. The Cambridge Audio AM10
is equipped with binding-post speaker terminals to connect a pair of
loudspeakers and a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack to plug-in a set of
headphones. An IR remote control is included for wireless operation.
Stereo Amplifier: The Cambridge Audio AM10 employs a true 35 watts RMS
x 2-channel fully-discrete power amplifier (into 8-ohms). The amplifier can
handle impedances between 4 and 8 ohms.
Rugged Chassis Design: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier
has been carefully designed with a brushed aluminum front-panel, rigid metal
chassis, and internal bracing to prevent resonance and improve sound quality.
Toroidal Transformer: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier
utilizes a custom low-flux toroidal transformer for audiophile performance.
LCD: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier features a
front-panel LCD for the display of information, such as the selected input
source, volume, and tone/balance level.
Volume Control: The Cambridge Audio AM10 features a front-panel rotary
dial to increase or decrease the level (-80 to 0) of the sound from the speakers outputs
and headphone output of the unit. You can also use the included remote control
to adjust the volume level.
Tone Control: The Cambridge Audio AM10 offers Bass (100Hz)
and Treble (10kHz) controls which are adjustable from -10 to +10dB. The unit
also allows you to balance the unit's speaker outputs left-to-right (+/-10).
Remote Control: The Cambridge Audio AM10 comes supplied with an IR
remote control for wireless operation of the integrated amplifier. The included remote control will also operate playback
function of the Cambridge Audio CD10 CD player (779CD10,
5 Rear-Panel Inputs: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier is
equipped with 5 rear-panel analog stereo RCA inputs (MP3/Aux, CD, tuner, Phono,
BD/DVD). These analog stereo RCA terminals are suited for any line-level source.
Phono Input: This input has a built-in phono stage. Turntables fitted
with a moving magnet (MM) or high-output moving coil (MC) cartridge can be used.
Note: Low output moving coil types (<1mV and normally 10-1,000 ohm
load impedance) cannot be directly connected.
Front-Panel Input: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier
features a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for temporary connection of a
portable digital audio player.
Note: Connecting an audio device to the front-panel 3.5mm
auxiliary input will override the unit's rear-panel RCA auxiliary input.
Record Output: The integrated amplifier's analog stereo RCA record
output lets you connect a tape recorder or CD-burner. The unit's record output
is not affected by the volume control or tone adjustments.
Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier is
equipped with 4 binding-post speaker terminals to connect a pair of bookshelf or
floor-standing loudspeakers. The binding-post terminals will accept bare wire,
pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single/dual). The binding post terminals are
color-coded (red/black) to distinguish positive and negative.
Headphone Output: The Cambridge Audio AM10 integrated amplifier is
equipped with a front-panel 1/4" headphone socket for connection of a set of
headphones. The amplifier's speaker outputs are muted when headphones are
Note: Headphones with an impedance of between 32 and 600 ohms are
