Product Highlights

    Stunning Sound

    The elegant design, the stunning screen, the multiple ways to access your music, all of this would count for nothing if the CXN didn't deliver musically. So there's beauty under the skin. Digital inputs are upsampled to 24–bit/384 kHz and passed through two Wolfson WM8740 24–bit DACs to extract extraordinary detail. These can improve your other digital sources too, thanks to digital inputs. The result will change your mind about what a network player can reveal in your music.

Details from Cambridge Audio

    Harnessing The Power Of Cambridge Connect

    The CXN is our fastest, slickest network player yet, and this is helped by the processing power of our bespoke new Cambridge Connect app. The app, which offers a new menu system plus a more graphical and intuitive interface, locates uPnP servers on your network, makes sense of the folder structure and lists content metadata, all without skipping a beat.

    Built To Sound Better

    Just as with other components in the CX series, the CXN features a low–resonance, acoustically dampened chassis, allied to a high quality power supply – and for the first time on a Cambridge network player, there's also a high resolution, full colour TFT display, which compliments the browsing experience on the Cambridge Connect app.

    Unleashing Zander

    With the CXN, we've been able to unlock more of our extremely powerful Zander audio streaming module. Incredibly, it's currently utilising only about 20 per cent of its potential. Expect firmware updates to unlock more features and functionality over time.

    Dual Differential DACS

    The two Wolfson WM8740 DACs within the CXN are used in a dual differential mode. Put simply, this means we use one stereo DAC per channel. Not only does this give us terrific stereo separation, but also enables us to multiply up and convert at 24–bit 384kHz (2 x192Khz) per channel. Why do we use Wolfson WM8740 DACs? Because they sound great, of course.

    Adaptive Time Filtering Upsampling

    The CXN employs Cambridge Audio's proprietary 2nd Generation Adaptive Time Filtering (ATF2) upsampling technology, which is implemented in the CXN's Analog Devices Sharc DSP. Traditionally, upsampling algortithms consider two bits of data then draw a line between; our ATF technology considers both the data and its overall shape, then interpolates where it'll best fit the waveform. We believe this is a more accurate, realistic way of handling audio upsampling, and results in a more convincing soundstage.

    Ultra Connectivity

    We designed the CXN with many ways to connect – Wi–Fi, USB ports, S/PDIF co–axial and optical inputs, plus Bluetooth if you add the optional BT100 receiver. Then we added compatibility with as many different file formats as we could. The result is that the CXN can source music from Spotify Connect, your iOS device via Airplay, Internet Radio and your personal NAS drive or UPnP server.

    Bespoke Bluetooth

    If you want to use the CXN with a Bluetooth source, we offer an optional BT100 audio receiver. From the ground up, this is an audiophile Bluetooth device. All the coding for the BT100, from the XMOS interface to the aptX implementation, is done in–house. We even include an extension cable which enables you get the best Bluetooth range.
