According to TrustedReviews, every aspect of the 751BD is phenomenal. They loved the exquisite quality of its construction and were blown away by its amazing performance. Not only was its handling of audio top-of-the-line, but its rendering of blue ray imagery was fantastic. The only things holding it back from perfection were its rather lame web content and high price tag.

Impressively built and offering a wide range of playback options, TechRadar consider Cambridge Audio's Azur 751BD to be a fantastic disc player. High-definition video performance is great, media file support is comprehensive, and although other models can boast better online content, the 751BD blows them out of the water when it comes to audio quality.

4.5 out of 5 stars

The high price of the Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD is compensated for by its ability, not only to play 3D Blu-ray and stream most types of media, but also by the stunning sound it generates from virtually any disc. CNET were very impressed with its audio and visual performances and support for super audio CD and DVD-audio, but were disappointed by the lack of online content.

"outstanding" (5 out of 5 points)

While the 751BD's analogue stereo CD output didn't exactly impress Hi-Fi World, its capabilities as a Blu-ray player are much more commendable. It admits any kind of silver disc known to man and offers many interesting features that help make up for the price hike relative to its predecessor, even though its network behaviour is not entirely reliable and the display could be larger.

"Outstanding Product"

The 751BD is as close to perfection as Hi-Fi News have seen in a Universal Disc Player thanks to its astonishing audio quality no matter the source, connectivity, and almost overwhelming configuration options. This is a player that has the potential to be the perfect all-in-one companion to any audiophile or cinephile, and at a price that defies belief.
