THE CXN MAKES IT SIMPLE TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR DIGITAL MUSIC, HOWEVER YOU CHOOSE TO ACCESS IT
The core technology from our multi-award winning StreamMagic streaming module enables the CXN to play virtually anything, from basic compressed MP3 formats to 24-bit/192kHz studio master quality FLAC and WAV files. And do so with incredible musicality.
Its wireless playback capabilities include Internet Radio, Spotify Connect, Airplay, NAS drives and UPnP servers, and aptX Bluetooth.
Whatever input the music comes from – wired or wireless – and no matter its original resolution, the powerful digital engine inside the CXN upsamples your favourite songs to 24-bit/384kHz hi-res quality. They’re then passed via twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs in Dual Differential configuration; the result is tonal clarity, detail and an involvement with your music that will astound you.
Intuitive to use, the CXN features an exquisite 4.3″ (11cm) colour display, and can also be controlled via the free Cambridge Connect App for Apple and Android devices. Browse your music by album, artist, playlist and more; it’s beautiful, simple, and an easy way to see at a glance what you’re listening to.
