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 (Power/Menu/Source/Volume) 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
