    Introduction

    Introduction .................................................................................................2

    Thank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Azur 651C CD player.
    Like all Cambridge Audio products, the 651C adheres to our three core
    principles – stunning performance, ease of use and incredible value.

    Developed as part of our on-going research and development regime,
    including extensive listening tests, we have incorporated many subtle
    tweaks and improvements to our circuits, components and layouts in the
    pursuit of our passion for sound quality.
    Our third generation S3 servo solution is featured which can dynamically
    adjust the focusing, tracking and output level of the disc reading laser in
    real-time. This ensures maximum retrieval of the digital information with
    extremely low data jitter (timing variantions).
    This is complemented by our use of a highly accurate master clock
    oscillator and very carefully designed impedance-matched clock buffering
    schemes. We have also incorporated support for CD-text for those discs
    that feature it.
    Twin WM8742 24bit/192kHz-capable DACs from Wolfson
    Microelectronics coupled to our proprietary Double Virtual Earth Balanced
    filter topology perform the critical Digital to Analog conversion. Special
    Metal Electrode Face resistors, polypropylene caps and custom-made
    electrolytic capacitors have all been used for their superior sound quality.
    A toroidal transformer is fitted to provide lower noise and less waveform
    distortion for quieter PSU operation.
    Another highlight is an eco-friendly low power (<1W) standby circuit. This
    circuit completely powers down the CD player circuits in Standby mode yet
    is itself totally isolated when the CD player is on, thus having no effect on
    sound quality.
    Your CD player can only be as good as the system it is connected to.
    Please do not compromise on your amplifier, speakers or cabling.
    Naturally, we particularly recommend amplification from the Cambridge
    Audio Azur range, which has been designed to the same exacting
    standards as this CD player. Your dealer can also supply excellent quality
    Cambridge Audio interconnects to ensure your system realises its full
    potential.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this manual; we recommend you
    keep it for future reference.

    Ventilation
    IMPORTANT – The unit will become hot when in use. Do not stack multiple
    units on top of each other. Do not place in an enclosed area such as a
    bookcase or in a cabinet without sufficient ventilation.
    Ensure that small objects do not fall through any ventilation grille. If this
    happens, switch off immediately, disconnect from the mains supply and
    contact your dealer for advice.

    Positioning
    Choose the installation location carefully. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight
    or close to a source of heat. No naked flame sources, such as lighted

    Plug-fitting Instructions (UK only)
    The cord supplied with this appliance is factory-fitted with a UK mains plug fitted with
    a 3-amp fuse inside. If it is necessary to change the fuse, it is important that a
    3-amp fuse is used. If the plug needs to be changed because it is not suitable for
    your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug
    fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug must then be disposed of
    safely, as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard. Should
    it be necessary to fit a 3-pin BS mains plug to the power cord, the wires should be
    fitted as shown in this diagram. The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
    appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
    in your plug. Connect them as follows:
    The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
    connected to the terminal which is marked with
    the letter ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
    The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
    connected to the terminal which is marked with
    the letter ‘L’ or coloured RED.
    The wire which is coloured GREEN/YELLOW must
    be connected to the terminal which is marked
    with the letter ‘E’ or coloured GREEN.
    If a standard 13-amp (BS 1363) plug is used, a 3-amp fuse must be fitted or, if any
    other type of plug is used, a 3-amp or 5-amp fuse must be fitted, either in the plug
    or adaptor, or on the distribution board.

    Filter settings
    The 651C use the WM8742 Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) from
    Wolfson Microelectronics. The 651C has two DACs in dual differential (i.e.
    one per channel, in an internally balanced mode). These very high quality
    parts allow a range of filters to be selected. There is no ‘right’ choice and
    we encourage you to experiment with the filters and pick the one that is
    best to your ears. The characteristics are shown below:

    Linear phase

    Impulse Response

    Response (dB)

    This filter exhibits a linear phase shift (i.e. constant group delay) so that
    all audio signals are time coherent, in the time domain there is a little
    pre-ringing and post-ringing. Out of band rejection is good.

    22kHz

    Minimum phase

    Impulse Response

    Response (dB)

    This filter has similar out of band rejection to above but trades a slightly
    non linear phase shift with frequency for no pre-ringing in the time
    domain.

    22kHz

    Steep

    Impulse Response

    Response (dB)

    This filter exhibits strong attenuation of anti-aliasing images outside the
    pass band (i.e. above 22.05kHz) at the expense of a little roll off at 20kHz
    and some pre-ringing and post-ringing in the time domain.

    Custom installation (C.I.) use

    Troubleshooting

    The 651C feature a Control Bus input/output that allow un-modulated
    remote control commands (positive logic, TTL level) to be received
    electrically by the unit and looped to another unit if desired. These control
    commands are typically generated by custom installation (multi-room)
    systems or remote IR receiver systems. The Control Bus sockets are
    colour-coded orange.

    There is no power

    An IR Emitter Input is also provided that allows modulated IR remote
    control commands to be received electrically by the unit. Commands on
    this input operate the unit only and are not looped out demodulated on
    the Control Bus Output.
    In addition the units feature 'direct' IR/Control codes as well as toggle
    codes for some of their features to simplify programming custom
    installation systems. Special direct On/Off and Mute commands can be
    accessed on the supplied remote control for teaching into C.I. systems or
    learning remotes as follows:
    1. Press and hold the Standby button. After 12 seconds, the remote
    first generates a Standby (toggle) command for Azur CD players. Keep
    holding the button down and after 12 seconds a CD player “On”
    command will be generated. If the button is held down for a further
    12 seconds, a CD player “Off” command is generated. After another
    12 seconds, the remote generates a Standby (toggle) command for
    Azur Amplifiers. A further 12 seconds and an Amp “On” command is
    generated. Finally, if the button is held down for a further 12 seconds,
    an Amp “Off” command is generated.
    2. Press and hold the Mute button. The remote first generates a Mute
    (toggle) command for Azur Amplifiers. Keep holding the button down
    and after 12 seconds an Amp “Mute On” command will be generated.
    If the button is held down for a further 12 seconds, an Amp “Mute
    Off” command is generated.
