340A/340A SE Integrated amplifierINTRODUCTIONThank you for purchasing this Cambridge Audio Azur 340A or 340A SEintegrated amplifier.The 340A has full protection against misuse and possible faults. Theoverload and short-circuit protection systems continuously monitor thevoltage, current and temperature of the output devices, allowing theprotection to act positively in case of need, without triggering spuriously.About the 340AThe design of a high quality but cost-effective audio amplifier presentsa major challenge. Providing first-class performance on an unlimitedbudget is one matter; achieving the same performance within tight pricelimits is quite another, and requires the expertise and experience thatCambridge Audio brings to its product design process. We believe wehave succeeded in our aim of creating a first-class affordable amplifier.For instance, separate very high quality Integrated Circuit Amplifiersmodules are used for each channel for freedom from crosstalk and bestpossible stereo imaging.The power supply is also a vital part of a power amplifier. A toroidaltransformer, selected for low external magnetic field, is used inconjunction with generously specified reservoir capacitors and optimallyplaced decoupling components.Close attention has been paid to the performance and quality of thepassive components used, both in the signal paths and for decouplingpurposes.The 340A incorporates tone controls that give subtle control of thefrequency response, allowing the correction of imperfect sourcematerial, and compensation for loudspeaker inadequacies or problemswith room acoustics. These tone controls can be switched completelyout of the audio path by use of the DIRECT switch, to give the shortestpossible audio path.About the 340A SEThe 340A Special Edition incorporates all the features of the 340A butalso has larger PSU reservoir capacitors for slightly more power coupledto enhanced bass response and greater dynamics.In addition the 340A SE has a convenient dedicated front mountedauxiliary MP3/iPodTM input for gaining the best possible sound qualityfrom portable music players. This input is automatically selected whensomething is plugged into it.Your amplifier can only be as good as the system it is connected to.Please do not compromise on your source equipment, speakers orcabling. Naturally we particularly recommend models from theCambridge Audio Azur range, which have been designed to the sameexacting standards as our amplifiers. Your dealer can also supplyexcellent quality Cambridge Audio interconnects to ensure your systemrealises its full potential.Thanks for taking the time to read this manual, we do recommend youkeep it for future reference.Matthew BrambleTechnical DirectorAzur integrated amplifier 3

340A/340A SE Integrated amplifierPROTECTION SYSTEMThe Azur 340A/340A SE protection system comprises of:Remedy - Ensure ventilation is not obstructed, and loudspeakers are notof too low impedance. Switch the amplifier off for 15 minutes to cooldown if necessary.1. Overload and Short-Circuit ProtectionIndicator - Output distorted and at unexpectedly low level.3. DC offset protectionDescription - The amplifier is fully protected against excessively low loadimpedances. The overload and short-circuit protection systemscontinuously monitor the voltage, current and temperature conditions ofeach of the output devices, and comparing them with the defined SafeOperating Area or SOA. This sophisticated system allows the protectionto act positively in case of genuine necessity, but without falsetriggering.Indicator - Amplifier will not operate; all input LEDs are flashing.Remedy - Check loudspeaker impedance is not too low. Very oftenloudspeakers of too low an impedance can be driven at low levels butnot high levels.Description - The DC offset protection system immediately isolates theamplifier from the loudspeakers by positively opening an output relay, inthe unlikely event of an amplifier fault. Errors of either polarity on bothchannels are detected.Remedy - This can sometimes be triggered by excessive mains noise etc;if so switching the unit off and on again will reset it. If unit will not resetthen there is an amplifier fault that will require servicing. Switch the unitoff and contact your dealer.2. Over temperature detection4. Voltage clampingIndicator - Output appears to cut out frequently, independently on thetwo channels.When rapid transients are applied to reactive loads in extremecircumstances, flyback pulses can be generated which are larger thanthe amplifier supply rail voltages and have the potential to cause harmto the output devices. The amplifier has a comprehensive voltageclamping system that ensures that such pulses are safely absorbed bythe amplifier and no damage can result.Description - The instantaneous temperatures of the output devices ofthe amplifier are continuously monitored to ensure that junctiontemperatures do not get dangerously high. When an over temperaturecondition occurs, the output is muted until the devices cool. Theoperation is carefully controlled to minimise the exposure of the outputdevices to wide temperature variations, which can impair reliability bythermal cycling. This is accomplished by making the muting periodsrelatively short, so the amplifier appears to be turning on and off. Thisputs the least stress on the output devices.Azur integrated amplifier 13
