EISA STREAMING AMPLIFIER 2021-2022

"Compact, clever and capable of driving even demanding speakers to deliver a room-filling sound – whether from your phone, your computer or streaming services – the EVO 150 is all the system many users will ever want or need. It has style on its side, and amazing flexibility including balanced inputs and a phono stage, but the most outstanding feature here is how simple it makes set-up and operation for breathtaking performance. The Cambridge Audio engineers have considered everything, from the way the EVO 150 leads you through installation to the superb StreamMagic app control, making this a system all the family can enjoy, with class-leading sound."

"Partnered with a pair of speakers, the Cambridge Audio Evo 150 is a capable and talented all-in-one system – one of the most exhaustively featured, best looking and highly intuitive examples of its kind. That’s complemented by a performance that, while not class-leading in every area, still makes a compelling case for choosing a simple system such as this over a set-up of separates."

All-in-one simplicity – just add speakers

Combining streaming smarts and high-class amplification in one box means Evo only needs wiring to mains power and to speakers to serve up thrilling sound quality. Streaming music with Evo means saying goodbye to metres of connection cables, and hello to intuitive, straightforward functionality in one sleek, good-looking box. Simply fire up your favourite music streaming service and connect to Evo using the app, Bluetooth or Evo’s built-in streaming service support. Pick a tune, press play and adjust the volume to your taste.

Connectivity to suit your needs

If you're not offended by cables, thanks to its suite of digital and analogue inputs, Evo is ready for you to add your favourite sources and build a wider system. Even video sources can join in - just connect your TV’s HDMI ARC output to Evo’s ARC input. Balanced XLR and unbalanced audio inputs mean you can connect your favourite analogue source device. Also unique to the Evo 150 is a built-in moving magnet (MM) phono stage, allowing you to connect a turntable that doesn't have an internal preamp. No matter where your music’s coming from, Evo will make it sound its best.

Small but mighty: How we managed to fit everything inside Evo

High-quality hi-fi sound

The Evo 150 uses revolutionary Hypex NCore Class D amplification rated at 150 watts per channel. Until Hypex NCore changed the game, Class D amplification was only about compactness and electrical efficiency - but Hypex NCore also offers obvious superiority where clarity, resolution and outright musicality are concerned. It’s a big part of what makes Evo such an enjoyable and convincing listen.

The Evo 150 is even powerful enough to drive two sets of speakers with no problem. Connect a second pair of loudspeakers to the Speaker B terminals, and enjoy the same thrilling sound in a second room.

Great British Sound

Evo uses the very best components, such as ESS Sabre 32bit high-resolution DACs - and then we bring every one of our 50+ years of audio know-how to bear. The result is the Great British Sound we are renowned for.

 

StreamMagic app

The convenience of music streaming is obvious - but unless it sounds great, what’s the point? The StreamMagic app offers comprehensive control of the entire Evo system, plus access to the world’s most popular and highest-quality music streaming services. It’s clear, logical and stable - so Evo will do precisely what you want it to, rapidly and accurately, from wherever you are in your home. Of course, you might prefer the app of your favourite music streaming service - if that’s your preference, no problem. Evo will be just as responsive to your inputs and commands.

Cambridge Audio's in-house engineers designed StreamMagic to be the best-sounding streaming platform around - and 10 years into its development, that’s exactly what it is. StreamMagic is constantly evolving to accept new formats and services, which means it should always be the perfect way to stream digital music.

Highest available quality for every service

It doesn’t matter how you access your digital audio files - the latest generation of the award-winning StreamMagic platform makes them sound better than ever. Every current format, from Roon to MQA-powered TIDAL Masters, Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast and Qobuz, is catered for. And StreamMagic is ready to adapt to whatever the future may bring too.

Complete control

Evo is intuitive and straightforward to operate, no matter if you’re using its full-function remote control, its simple and elegant control app, or the physical controls and big, bright, detailed display on its fascia.

Bluetooth convenience. HD sound quality

Nothing’s easier or simpler than streaming via Bluetooth. Evo takes it to the max by using aptX HD Bluetooth - which is wireless, high-definition music streaming with flawless transmission and incredibly realistic, convincing sound. Evo delivers all the wireless convenience you want, with none of the sonic compromises.

Free your headphones

As well as featuring a 3.5mm output for headphones, Evo is also a Bluetooth transmitter - so if you’d rather do your private listening on wireless headphones, Evo has you covered.

A Design Rooted in Heritage

Just 305mm wide, Evo will sit neatly wherever you need it to. But thanks to its beautiful design and all-around good looks, it really deserves centre-stage.

Cambridge Audio's story started with the iconic P40 amplifier. So, using the P40’s wood trim as inspiration, the EVO 150 incorporates beautiful, tactile walnut side panels into its elegant design. Evo’s use of premium materials includes a choice of side panels, designed to accentuate the timeless simplicity of Evo’s design and compliment your lifestyle.

 

EVO - The Evolution of Hi-Fi

Evolution means transformation. Evolution means improvement. Evolution means progress. At Cambridge Audio, it means hi-fi ready for today, able to fit into your lifestyle and made to look as good as it sounds. It means taking over 50 years' worth of audio expertise and fitting it all into a single revolutionary product. It means Evo.

We’ve developed Evo so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. You can enjoy our incredible, full-on hi-fi sound, with all its precision, scale and emotional expression. But you can also enjoy this extraordinary sound quality from a compact, convenient, good-looking all-in-one system. Evo is a huge step forward.

Minimal, timeless design

When Ged Martin sat down in our London studio to design Evo, he was determined to sketch a product design that will endure for many years. Ged knows simplicity is the most elegant aspect of industrial design, and Evo demonstrates his mastery of form and line. He designed a product that looks classically timeless. Our story started with the iconic P40 amplifier. So, using the P40’s wood trim as inspiration, Ged incorporated beautiful, tactile walnut side-panels into his elegant design.

Heritage and the evolution of hi-fi

We've been designing and building outstanding audio equipment for over 50 years. In that time, fashion in hi-fi has changed just as surely as fashion in music - but we’ve always been at the cutting edge. So, we think Evo is not only the best-sounding all-in-one player you can buy, its design looks to the future at the same time as acknowledging our rich legacy.

Voiced in London

Even the best components don’t deliver incredible sound all by themselves. Our engineering team spent hundreds of hours in our London laboratory, poring over every detail of the way Evo makes music until they were completely satisfied. Because if our engineers aren’t satisfied, they don’t think you will be either.

Tomorrow's hi-fi, today

Evo is everything you’ve always loved about hi-fi, evolved to suit your needs. Elegant design, wide-ranging functionality, complete simplicity and exceptional performance. All from a single box. All of the convenience, none of the compromise.

Cambridge Audio

It’s why we’ve been doing what we do for the last 50 years. It’s why we’re always trying to make the listening experience better. Pure.
