It seems Cambridge Audio decided that they needed to make a choice between nice sound and playing CDs properly - they chose the former. While it sounds good it butchers any CD with tracks that are meant to have no gap between them Try playing a CD like the Beatles' Love - which has 26 seamless tracks. This player will insert a gap between every track. Try Beethoven's Pastoral and cringe when it inserts silent moments between movements which should blend seamlessly.

I wish I had seen these reviews before buying - it lasted 2 days in my home before being taken back and replaced by a player from another manufacturer - which, at the same price point plays my CDS perfectly AND with great sound.

The sound quality of CA equipment is usually excellent, and this CD player is no exception. To hear my CDs any better, I'd need better loud-speakers and new ears.

Unfortunately, the CD10 is less than excellent mechanically and ergonomically. It takes several seconds to perform mechanical operations. After a CD has been inserted, the unit displays "LOADING" for fifteen seconds (I timed it) before responding to the Play button. The tray moves in and out noisily, which doesn't affect the sound quality, but is in sad contrast to my other players, which slide like silk.

What is more annoying is that the CD10 sometimes (but not always) makes a low-pitched mechanical noise while playing. What's the point of a 93 db S/N ratio if you can hear the gears churning?

In summary, I'd give the CD10 five stars if they would bring the mechanics up to the quality of my old NAD 5320.

My Arcam CD player had reached the end of its life (20 years of good service) and not being able to afford to spend too much on it's replacement i was persuaded to go with Cambridge Audio Topaz CD10 by a salesperson.
The exterior of the player is exactly what i want, it's clean and simple. The disappointment begins as soon as i switch it on and start playing discs.
1) The drawer loads in a very clunky, rattly way.
2) It takes nearly 10 seconds to recognise a disc and then another 8 seconds to play it. To play mp3 format discs it took nearly 30 seconds.
3) It inserts gaps between tracks when playing prerecorded cd's - try Pink Floyd and see what i mean.
4) It sounds fine with classical music and jazz but makes rock sound tinny, removes all the detail, makes the music sound like it's been squashed together into a small cardboard box.
5) Just one more thing, and it's a minor niggle, but the cd drawer doesnt come out fully.
Unfortunately, i couldn't recommend this player. I have had it for 2 days and it's already annoying me. It's going to have to go back. A word of advice, never listen to salespeople, do your own research and make your own mind up.

This product is basically useless.

I am writing this review rather angrily after having to lug my CD10 back to the shop where I had bought it. This is because, put simply, it didn't play CDs. At least not the way it should do.

Buy any old £25 hifi from your local corner shop and it will do a better job at playings CDs than Cambridge Audio's piece of junk. It takes ages to load, and, when it finally does clunk into gear, it somehow contrives to insert silent gaps in-between each and every track on the CD.

Why? Why would it do that? The gaps ruin any album (about 98% of all albums I would estimate) that have any tracks which merge into each other.

Basically, then, this CD player doesn't play CDs. It massacres them.

When I emailed Cambridge Audio about this, they took several weeks to reply before finally admitting: "This is a feature of all our CD10s."

WOW.

Why would should I pay £160 for something that doesn't do the job the little stereo I bought in 1996 does? Seriously?

Cambridge Audio are taking us all for fools. Don't be the next one.

NB. I am giving this product one star because Amazon forces me to.

I’ve just bought this from Richer Sounds today.

Reading the other reviews I’m not sure if something hasn’t changed with this CD player ?

My CD10 does not split the tracks and I can play things like the orb and various continuous DJ mixes without interruption – Has Cambridge Audio listened to reviewers and fixed this problem ? Who knows, but I am very happy.

True, the CD load tray doesn’t come all the way out but this is no big deal really.

True , the CD load tray isn’t super silky smooth like my other cd player (Pioneer) but it isn’t as noisy and clunky as I was expecting having just read the reviews on here.

True, CD load time isn’t that fast – just chucked a CD in and timed it at 10 seconds. Not superfast, but not unbearable, I can live with it !

I’ve got mine paired with an AM10 amp and some old mission speakers. The sound is great and it looks great too !

I bought mine from Richer Sounds reconditioned for £102 delivered with a 12 month warranty. For the money I think it is a great budget CD player. If it was splitting the tracks, as has been reported on here, then it might be very annoying and get less stars, but mine seems just fine.

If you are considering this then it may be worth contacting Richer Sounds and asking for a recon. I saved £60 on the new price, it looks mint/as new and comes with a warranty. If you are concerned you could also ask about the track splitting issue before you purchase. I found Richer Sounds were pretty efficient and good with communication too.
