Cambridge Audio Alva TT TurntableCambridge Audio
The Cambridge Audio ALVA TT is a serious turntable designed for audiophiles who appreciate both performance and convenience.
THE WORLD’S FIRST BLUETOOTH APTX HD TURNTABLE
The fantastic Bluetooth aptX HD liberates your record player from the hi-fi rack. With the freedom to place Alva TT anywhere you like, your music can be streamed up to 24 bits – uncompressed - from Alva TT to any Bluetooth receiver.
INTEGRATED PHONO STAGE
Alva TT’s custom designed, integrated phono stage is built around the award-winning Cambridge Duo, which itself retails for $399.
BRITISH-MADE SINGLE-PIECE TONEARM
The Alva TT uses an internationally celebrated British-made one-piece tonearm. There are no joints, giving it the best possible grounding for the cartridge and offering extremely low friction.
MC CARTRIDGE PRE-INSTALLED
The pre-installed cartridge delivered with the Alva TT is a high-output Moving Coil cartridge – retail $649 - with an exposed cantilever design.
Rather than using a Belt Drive system with the ALVA TT, Cambridge Audio has opted for a medium-torque Direct Drive motor assembly. This design effectively reduces Wow and Flutter to the very low figure of ,06%, thus providing the Alva turntable with near perfect pitch stability.
Complimenting the Direct Drive motor, the platter on the Alva TT is both dense and heavy. It’s made from Polyoxymethylene (POM), a high-tech engineering acrylic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness and excellent dimensional stability. The weight of the platter, coupled with the medium torque Direct Drive motor, ensures excellent speed stability during playback of your records.
