Summary: As a whole, the turntable is a complete system and with very flexible capabilities. The integrated bluetooth phono stage alows you to connect to many devices, extending your listening options without making it overly complex or adding more gear...
This is a benchmark product, and not because of the focus on internal engineering, that's been accomplished by several turntable manufacturers already. However, the focus on how the turntable can be improved by modern users hasn't. The incorporation of the world's first high resolution Bluetooth in a turntable allows you to - place the table anywhere - enjoy it everywhere. Overall, this is a very sophisticated turntable, yet the enjoyment of it is so simple.

"The Alva serves up a weighty helping of bass, but also plenty of texture and definition here, too - it's a grown up, mature sound. 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.
Review by WHAT HIFI, United Kingdom
""New ground can only be broken once, and Cambridge Audio's hi-res wireless Alva TT turntable is now a benchmark product...The fact it’s able to stream wirelessly to a 24bit/48kHz aptX HD standard makes it number one in a field of one. No other record player from any better-established brand in this sort of market - Rega, for instance, or Clearaudio - is able to come close to this level of convenience. No other record player is as friendly or adaptable, and no other record player will fit in with your wider lifestyle so seamlessly.
That’s why the Alva TT is so easy to recommend so wholeheartedly."
