Ultimate digital convenience and quality.
Built on our multi award-winning StreamMagic streaming platform, it gives you seamless access to your complete digital library, Spotify Connect and internet radio and then plays it all back exactly as it was originally made to be heard thanks to our own upsampling technology.
Almost 50 years of hi-fi expertise goes into every single one of our products to ensure they sound spot on - the CXN is no different hence why it’s the best sounding streamer around.
Your music will be passed through our unique ATF2 upsampling technology (read more on this wizardry here) and then through dual Wolfson WM8740 DACs (very premium digital to analogue converters).
Essentially all signals are upscaled to a hi-res 24bit/384kHz format using polynomial curve fitting interpolation. Every song has even more acute detail and warm depth, so you’ll be able to enjoy musical nuances that you’ve never heard before in songs that you’ve heard a thousand times.
Our engineers also spent hours tuning the CXN the old school way, by ear, which we believe is the only way to achieve a sound quality that genuinely moves you.
We wanted to design a product that allows you to play any song in the world from any device.
It’s a long list, but it basically means the CXN will play anything you want and thanks to its huge processing power and slick functionality from our award winning StreamMagic platform, it doesn’t make a fuss of it or skip a single beat, it just plays your music instantly.
We’ve included; Spotify Connect, Airplay, Internet Radio, NAS Drive/ UPnP compatibility, asynchronous USB, Coax and TOSLINK digital inputs, DSD64 support and AptX Bluetooth (with added BT100 receiver).
There’s a lovely big colour screen on the front so you can always see the album artwork and commands that you’re sending to the unit. To make control as seamless as possible, we’ve built our own app – Cambridge Connect.
Whether it’s flicking through albums, building playlists or setting presets, the app allows simple and intuitive browsing of all the connected sources from the comfort of your chair.
We’ve completely removed any obstructions or complicated menus between you and your favourite music, leaving the CXN simply as a catalyst to an incredible listening experience.
"A stylish, feature-packed streamer that sounds great and is a joy to use."Read the full review
"Klasické CD přehrávače už pomalu ztrácejí své výsadní postavení hlavního distributora hudební produkce v domácím poslechovém řetězci a o trůn se začínají stále častěji dělit se síťovými playery. Společnost Cambridge Audio jeden takový nabízí a podle všeho svou práci zastane více než dobře."
'Cambridge make some of the finest music systems around, and the CXN network is a fine addition to that lineage. It has a gloriously slim, floating design that's simply beautiful; and the sound quality, if anything surpasses that.'
'The CXN is a gorgeously designed hi-fi audio streamer with all the wired and wireless connections you need to play digital music from any device.'
"One of the best streamers I've yet come across."
