Cambridge Audio Alva TT V2 Turntable Released
Cambridge Audio's Alva TT V2 turntable is now available to buy.
Cambridge Audio has officially released the Alva TT V2 turntable, launched at CES 2022 alongside the more affordable Alva ST.
The updated Alva TT V2 aptX HD deck takes the baton from the original and gives you the option to either play records in a standard hi-fi system scenario or stream them wirelessly to Bluetooth speakers or headphones in up to 24-bit/48Hz quality.
Improvements, many of which are apparently results of customer feedback, include a new tonearm with a detachable headshell (making it easier to upgrade), a switchable phono stage based on the company's Alva Duo, and a pure hi-fi mode that turns off the Bluetooth transmitter for optimal sound quality.
Alva TT V2 retains the original Alva TT's direct-drive system with a heavy aluminium top plate, polyoxymethylene (POM) platter, and pre-installed Applause Award-winning Alva MC cartridge.
Meanwhile, the Alva ST (below) benefits from the new tonearm, switchable phono stage and aptX HD streaming smarts, whilst pairing them with a belt-drive system and Audio Technica AT-VM95e moving magnet cartridge.
Cambridge Audio's Alva TT V2 has an RRP of £1,700, with the Alva ST priced at £850. Both are available from Spring 2022.
