This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:
Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

Sound, style and functionality blend together to make the Cambridge Audio Alva ST turntable a class-leading all-rounder.

Blends sound and function like nothing else in its class
Exquisitely engineered, the real beauty of the Cambridge Audio Alva ST is how well it blends sound and functionality. Unlike many of its rivals, set-up is drama free and speed control is via electronic control (no need to manually change the belt). A built-in phonostage and Bluetooth output offer universal connectivity, letting you enjoy the top quality sound from any hi-fi, speaker system or even Bluetooth headphones.

Switchable, high quality Bluetooth aptX HD output
The top quality Bluetooth aptX HD output is a standout feature with the Alva ST. Bluetooth connectivity usually means a loss in sound quality but, thanks to the Alva ST’s aptX HD output, wireless sound is much higher quality. Working up to 24 bit/48kHz, the Alva ST delivers Hi-Res audio to beat CD – cable-free. For improved sound when not using the Bluetooth output, it’s switchable – reducing possible interference when using a cabled connection.

Built-in, switchable phonostage
For a fully analogue experience, little beats a cabled connection. The Alva ST features a switchable, built-in phonostage, so it connects to any hi-fi system with an AUX input. RCA phono outputs let you use any phono cable, allowing you to use longer or higher quality cables of your choice. If you already have a high quality phonostage, simply switch the output level at the rear.

Highly engineered tonearm
Rigid and low resonance, the Alva ST’s tonearm is every bit as thoughtfully engineered as the rest of the turntable. It features a detachable headshell, making it much easier to remove the cartridge – ideal for when you’re cleaning the deck and don’t want to risk damaging the stylus or for when upgrading to a new cartridge. With adjustable anti-skating, the rigid tonearm cleanly follows the record’s groove, giving you clear and lifelike sound.

Fitted with a legendary cartridge
Supplied fitted with the legendary Audio Technica AT-VM95E cartridge, the Alva ST is ready to play, straight out of the box. Detailed, musical and engaging, the cartridge makes listening to music fun. As part of the VM95 family, it’s easy to upgrade the stylus as and when funds allow. Simply slide out the old and slot in the new for an instant upgrade in sound (with optional VM95EN, VM95MK or VM95SH styli).

Easy to set-up and practical
With the cartridge already in place, it’s easy to get started with the Alva ST. Simply dial up the correct weight and anti-skating and you’re good to go. Once installed, a practical lid and push-button speed control make the Alva ST easy to live with.

Stylish good looks
Sleek, clean lines and a reassuring solidness means the Alva ST exudes a sense of quality. Finished in Cambridge’s signature lunar-grey and matte black, the Alva ST’s smooth style perfectly matches other Cambridge Audio products.

Do justice to your precious record collection, with the talented Cambridge Audio Alva ST.
