Description

POWER PRECISION AND DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY

Designing the CX Series amplifiers was a labour of love; the product of a team dedicated to extracting every drop of pleasure and detail from all genres of music. These amplifiers will help you discover a new dimension of sound.

The CXA60 must be heard to be believed. Rated at 60 Watts per channel, its class AB amplifier design will reveal spectacular detail in your music. A low-flux toroidal transformer also enhances performance and together these design details deliver incredible control over your speakers.
And because we’ve designed it with digital in mind, it features two optical inputs and a co-axial digital input so you connect up all of your digital sources. Add an optional BT100 Bluetooth dongle and you’ve got aptX streaming direct from your smartphone or tablet, allowing access to music from Spotify, Youtube, and a host of others.
To journey deeper into the music you love, the CXA60 has been designed from the ground up with built-in digital to analogue conversion capabilities.
Using a high-specification 24-bit/192kHz WM8740 DAC chip from Wolfson, the CXA60 offers a powerful upgrade for all your digital sources.

Analogue sources are equally well catered for with four RCA inputs and a front 3.5mm Aux jack. In use, the CXA60 is a delight. The floating effect of the chassis, the brushed finish, the easy-to-read front panel, they’re all designed to create a hi-fi amplifier that’s as beautiful on the outside as its well engineered on the inside. Whatever your source, the CXA60 will reveal new depths and layers of sound, letting you re-discover your favourite music.

Reviews

The new range promises to “revolutionise entertainment in the digital age” no less, and sports a fresh design style. The hi-fi and home cinema components offer support for high-res streaming, 4K upscaling, aptX Bluetooth, DSD playback and more.
Prices range from £300 to £2000 for the Cambridge CX series, which is getting its official launch at CES 2015 in Las Vegas and will go on sale by the end of Q1 in the UK, US and elsewhere.

The company has also revealed a new-look logo, which will see the dropping of the ‘Audio’ part of the name for a simpler ‘Cambridge’ brand name on some products – including this CX series.

New Cambridge Connect streaming apps for Android and Apple iOS devices also appear to use this naming structure
