Wondering if there are any Cambridge Audio Pre-Power Amp owners here like Azur 840E, 840W, 851E, 851W. If yes can you let me know your complete stereo chain?

Hi, I have Cambridge Audio preamp C500..

I see the specs now, it is early 2000 model, how is the experience? I see your amp is a network stereo receiver, so where in the chain are you using the pre-amp. I am evaluating if I get a used CA 840E in less than Rs 20,000 will it be a value as against getting any DIY pre-amps at similar or lesser price points. Advantages of CA preamps is the plethora of connectivity options they provide but i have no option to audition one at this point in time to draw a conclusion myself. So some first hand experience will be very useful.

Got a used CA 840W from hifishark lead and replaced my existing CA 650A. Now using the 851C in built pre-amp for the moment. Its way better than the predecessor. Will post a detailed review in some time, presently also on the verge of looking for a pre-amp in sub-40K range
