A SINGLE SPEED TRANSPORT OPTIMISED FOR MUSIC CDS

Designed specifically for the new CX Series, the Cambridge CXC delivers stunning CD playback and works in perfect harmony with the Cambridge CXA60 and CXA80 integrated amplifiers, as well as other external DACs.
At the heart of the CXC is our legendary S3 servo design. Designed for efficient recovery of CD digital data with state of the art error correction, it’s been engineered to play audio CDs brilliantly. Multi-purpose drives simply can’t compete.
With no digital to analogue conversion in the CXC, when used in conjunction with the CX Series amplifiers it outputs the CD signal in digital form, relying on the high quality Wolfson DAC in the CXA amplifier for the crucial digital to analogue conversion stages. The result is detail and clarity from your disc collection that will astound you.

Reviews

When it debuted at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, the Cambridge Audio CXC CD player drew as much attention as any component in the British company’s room. That’s saying something. So much, then, for interest in CDs going the way of the dinosaur. Music listeners that value great sound realize the worth of a standout CD player that focuses on one thing and performs that single task with flawless operation. Fortified by Cambridge’s proprietary S3 servo transport and an audiophile-caliber toroidal transformer, the single-speed CXC is quiet, efficient, and painstakingly accurate. Featuring state-of-the-art error correction, CXC recovers profound detail from your discs and provides illustriously defined, soulfully nourishing musical experiences. Tailored to work in harmony with the Cambridge CX60 and CX80 integrated amplifiers, it also proves worthy of a much higher price class when paired with other high-end DACs.
