      "The build is of a high quality, it can handle high-resolution PCM and DSD files, and it’s nice to use with the remote and control app, too. But it’s the ever-evolving nature of the CXN (V2) that has ensured it’s never out of date."

    The Whole Story

    Getting hold of the music you want easily is one thing. Being moved by its fidelity is another. That’s why CXN V2 packs dual Wolfson WM8740 series DACs. By upscaling any digital music to an information-packed 24-bit/384kHz using our unique ATF2 technology, music is delivered with a warmth, depth and nuance not often associated with digital audio.

    • “Pretty Astounding!

      Writing this after barely a week of owning my new streamer – no doubt about it – it sounds and looks brilliant. After years of listening to Radio 3 on an outdated old DAB receiver the difference is amazing – crystal clear and a magnitude leap in quality.”
