Product Information

Just Add Vinyl

There's nothing quite like vinyl: the tactile pleasure of removing a record from its sleeve and carefully placing it on a deck is unique. Cambridge Audio designed the original Alva TT to honor that tradition, and Alva ST to share that pleasure with more people. 

With a pre-fitting cartridge - so you'll be playing records in minutes - the belt-drive Alva ST also features switchable Hi-Res Bluetooth streaming and an integrated phono stage. 

Everyone should be able to enjoy the freedom Alva brings. 

Features:

  • Bluetooth aptX HD – Switchable Hi-Res wireless streaming.  Place the turntable on a flat surface that suits you.
  • Built-In Phono Stage – Switchable phono pre-amp, direct connection to amp – keep your setup simple.
  • Belt Drive – With simple electronic push-button speed control.
  • Pre-installed Moving Magnet Cartridge – A well-regarded choice, play records in minutes.
  • New Tonearm with Removable Headshell – Lightweight and strong. Tracks your records flawlessly.

Hi-Res Bluetooth

Built-in Bluetooth aptX HD liberates Alva from the rest of your hi-fi. With the freedom to place an Alva deck on any flat surface, your records take center stage. Music can be streamed to any compatible Bluetooth kit, including headphones, at up to 24bit/48kHz Hi-Res quality. Or, you can deactivate it and simply use phono cables – it’s your call.

Integrated Phono Stage

Alva ST has an integrated phono stage (phono pre-amp), derived from the award-winning Alva Duo – to reveal incredible detail from your records. It means you can connect Alva ST to any amp or compatible speaker system. You can deactivate the deck’s phono stage, too – ideal if your amp already has one or to keep upgrade options open.

MM Cartridge Pre-installed

After hours of listening, Cambridge selected an Audio Technica Moving Magnet cartridge to be readily fitted on Alva ST. With no fiddly setup, you’ll be playing records in minutes. The elliptical stylus provides a greater contact area with your records’ grooves, producing accurate tracking of information and, of course, great-sounding music. 

Belt Drive

Alva ST uses the proven belt-drive method, supplemented with electronic motor speed control. After connecting the belt for the first time, you won’t need to look under the platter again. Rotation speed selection is made by 2 neat electronic buttons on the ST’s aluminum top surface – so you can effortlessly switch between playing albums and singles.

All-New Tonearm

After hours of testing, Cambridge Audio's engineers selected a new high-mass, low-resonance tonearm for Alva TT V2 and Alva ST. By minimizing resonant frequencies, in combination with the cartridge, helps retrieve the maximum detail from your records. A detachable die-cast aluminum headshell makes swapping cartridges easy – then fine-tuned with greater precision thanks to a new anti-skating dial.
