With an already strong reputation for award-winning network players, the Cambridge CXN moves the standard even higher.

SOUND ENGINEERING


The Cambridge CXN puts sound quality first and it does this through the use of quality electronics and painstaking design. Using twin Wolfson DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), each channel has its own DAC to process its own information. This gives a more precise and accurate sound quality with improved stereo imaging. When combined with the 2-Pole Dual Differential Bessel, noise reducing filter, the DACs help give the CXN outstanding levels of clarity and transparency of sound. Simply put, this network player will pull out subtle nuances of sound that you might never even have heard before!

STREAM ALL YOU STORED MUSIC - INCLUDING HIGH RESOLUTION FILES

With UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) compatibility it's easy to connect the Cambridge CXN to your home network and stream from your NAS drive, hard drive, PC or laptop. The CXN accepts a wide range of files, including many high resolution formats. ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis are all supported, making this a highly flexible streamer.

AFT2 UP-SAMPLING FOR THE ULTIMATE DETAIL AND LEAST JITTER

The Cambridge CXN improves sound quality still further with an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) up-sampling 'stretches' the music to give the highest resolution possible. Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll also notice enhanced depth of sound and a more natural quality without the "edge" that can afflict digital music. You'll hear every detail, including every deep breath, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real! AFT2 even aids native 24-bit/192kHz recordings with a faster sampling rate for even less jitter.

CONNECT TO INTERNET RADIO AND SPOTIFY CONNECT

In addition to supporting over 20,000, easy to access Internet radio stations, the CXN is also compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world's most popular streaming service and the CXN has Spotify Connect integrated into it. If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. Should you prefer other music services, the CXN also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer for radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.

AIRPLAY AND OPTIONAL BLUETOOTH

In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the CXN is also compatible with Apple's AirPlay streaming. Use it with your iPhone, iPad PC or Mac and wireless stream your iTunes library or other compatible music services. Connect up the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.

BUILT-IN DIGITAL PRE-AMP - JUST ADD ACTIVE SPEAKERS!

If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in digital pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analogue outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance via the CXN.

FULLY CONNECTED, INCLUDING XLR BALANCED SOCKETS AND 4 USBs

When it comes to connectivity the CXN has everything you'd expect and possibly more. The highlight is the fitment of XLR balanced sockets. When used with a compatible amplifier, such as the matching Cambridge CXA80, these connections give the ultimate analogue link possible, with greatly improved resistance to interference. Added to this there are no fewer than four USB interfaces. The front-mounted socket is ideal for connecting temporary devices such as USB media sticks. At the back, two interfaces take care of a more permanently connected media device plus the optional Bluetooth dongle port. A Type B asynchronous USB input is provided for the direct connection of your PC or Mac. This makes the ideal connection for hooking up your computer as it will effectively 'control' the PC's output for the best sound quality possible. This greatly reduces jitter and gives the highest quality sound possible from your computer audio. Finally, both optical and coaxial digital sockets are provided for both inputs and outputs. This lets you connect up other digital components and take advantage of the quality DAC built into the CXN.

INTUITIVE APP INTERFACE AND COLOUR DISPLAY

With a free Apple/Android app you have effortless control over the radio stations with the comfort of your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad or Android device. The app also seamlessly manages all your streaming content and is, in effect, a very user friendly way of bringing together and controlling all your digital sources. Boasting a new colour screen, it's now possible to display album art on the player. This makes it a pleasure to browse for albums and artists by whichever control system you use.

SLEEK STYLE

The CXN is part of the totally redesigned CX-Series. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXN a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the digital amplifiers and CD transport. Yet it's far more than just a good-looking case; it helps the sound quality, too. With rigid, metal construction and low-resonance design, the casing helps shield the player from both mechanical and electrical interference, helping to improve clarity and reduce background noise.

For a comprehensively equipped network streamer that puts sound first, the Cambridge CXN is simply the best in class.
