RE: cambridge audion azur 640p

Any idea where I can buy the cambridge audio azur 640p phono amp nowadays? I checked ebay and they only had used, asking $189. The new price back then was gbp 60, according to the old WHF I am reading (2006).

 

Failing to get this, I am wondering if there is a Rega fono mini which works with moving coil cartridges?

 

Thanks!

 

Peter

I am using an AT31e MC cartridge on an old Thorens TD124!

Not tempted by the 651p?

In the UK, Richer Sounds was the only retailer.  It was long shown below retail price in the mag, even after it had increased to £99.

For under a hundred pounds, also consider the Rega

I haven't used this latest version, but am very pleased with its predecessor.

 

PS.  Apologies, just read you are using a Moving Coil.  So the CA is suitable and the Rega isn't

Doesn't Rega have a small affordable phono stage (like the fono mini) for moving coils? seems surprising

I've been looking at an Azur 640P on e-bay a couple of hours ago, and I believe there's another at BIN price of £90.
