Sound First Design

At Cambridge Audio we always ensure our receivers deliver the same audio performance levels as our award winning stereo amplifiers. So, the 551R V2 will give you great room-shaking movie effects, but unlike many other receivers on the market it will also deliver incredibly high-quality musical reproduction. We only use pure audiophile components, including high performance toroidal transformers, which is why the 551R V2 is one of the most powerful AV receivers in its class.

Compact Impact

At only 110mm (4.3") high the 551R V2 fits on almost all shelves and racks whilst still offering deep immersive power.

Home Cinema

Supporting surround sound speaker configurations up to 7.1, the 551R V2 outputs 110 watts of power per channel and delivers it with punch and clarity to bring your movies to life in true hi-fi quality.

Hi-Fi Stereo

The 551R V2 has been specifically designed to ensure it’s more than an AV receiver, delivering an exceptional stereo performance with a powerful 110 watts per channel. You can connect a wide range of source equipment and enjoy high performance stereo audio. Furthermore, the front mounted MP3 connection allows anyone to quickly and easily connect an iPod or laptop to the 551R V2.

Simple Setup

You can easily set up the 551R V2 by yourself using the Cambridge Audio Mic Controlled Auto Speaker Setup (CAMCAS). For quick and simple installation in any room this system uses the supplied microphone to perform multiple measurements of the listening environment and automatically sets the receiver up for optimum use dependent on your room’s acoustics.

Twin Video Outputs

The 551R V2 features two HDMI outputs. These can be used to run two displays at the same time; ideal if you have a screen in a second room, or want to use a projector for movies, but a TV screen for day to day use.

Support for the latest formats

With the very latest technologies – including the Cirrus Logic dual 32-bit DSP for compatibility with all the latest CODECs and formats, including 4K and 3D video, the 551R V2 will handle future formats for years to come.

Class-Leading Connectivity

The 551R V2 features six HDMI inputs with support for 4K video, 3D TV and deep colour pass through, six RCA phono inputs, four digital coaxial and optical plus a convenient, front-mounted 3.5mm input.

Full Metal Jacket

Electronics are particularly susceptible to vibration; that’s why we’ve used a low resonance, acoustically damped metal chassis to eliminate as much vibration as possible, ensuring that the most sound quality is extracted from each source.

Super Cooled

All this power is managed by our advanced X-Tract™ cooling system to ensure the 551R V2 can operate anywhere for any amount of time without overheating.
