With the Alva TT, Cambridge Audio has managed to put an interesting spin on a premium turntable. It’s a brave and bold move that, on the whole, has paid off. Not everyone has space for lots of boxes in their audio system, and achieving the same sort of set-up from a traditional deck could mean a lot more hassle.

The Alva TT might not be the final word in sound quality, but it’s still a good-looking, smart product that has plenty going for it.
