Product Details

Cambridge Audio Sonata AR30 Black Sirius Ready 2.1 Receiver Player, Model CAMBSONAAR30B

The AR30 FM/AM integrated 2.1 receiver proves Sonata’s beauty is way more than skin deep. Using a substantial toroidal transformer and fully discrete amplification, this svelte receiver offers genuine hi-fi performance and an impressive 40 Watts per channel (8 Ohms) of controlled, refined power.

Complete iPod integration

Sonata’s custom-designed iPod dock can vastly improve your digital music thanks to Cambridge Audio’s quasi-differential noise cancelling technology.

Drawing every last drop of detail from your music collection, the neat yet sturdy dock accommodates any iPod and the supplied Navigator remote offers armchair control of your iPod, CDs, radio and amp controls. Other MP3 players can also be connected via the front connection and accessed using a dedicated ‘MP3’ source selector.

The on-board high sensitivity FM/AM tuners include twenty presets for instant access radio to stations. In addition, the North American version of Sonata is SIRIUS Ready. Simply purchase a SIRIUS tuner device in order to activate this amazing service. For more information on SIRIUS, click here

Not only does Sonata perform superbly, it looks absolutely fantastic thanks to a stunning high-end brushed aluminium finish and is available in either black or silver.

And under the hood, micro surface-mount circuit technology further improves performance by reducing signal paths to the absolute minimum. This produces a highly detailed and rich soundstage – ideal for any room in the home and is perfectly developed to handle music and movies with aplomb.
