Cambridge Audio Alva TT V2 review: solid build and capable sound impress with this wireless turntable

Cambridge Audio is best known for its capable and often award-winning range of electronics, but in recent years its reach has expanded into the turntable market. The company currently makes two models, with the Alva TT as the top of the range. This new V2 variant marks a gentle but thoughtful evolution over the original we tested in 2019.

Turntable: Cambridge Audio Alva TT V2

The main changes for the Cambridge Audio Alva TT V2 are a new tonearm with a detachable headshell and the ability to enable and disable both the built-in phono stage and the Bluetooth module. The new tonearm replaces the Rega-based design of the previous generation and makes it easier to change cartridges when needed. The decision to make both the Bluetooth and phono stages switchable comes in response to customer feedback on the previous generation. The rest of the Alva is unchanged, and therefore no worse.
