Details from Cambridge Audio

    Cambridge Audio's Best Ever Universal Blu–Ray player

    The CXU is the pinnacle in high–end home cinema. Designed for the ultimate performance and playback of your favourite movies and music, the CXU has unrivalled connectivity making it a complete home cinema hub, whatever your source.

    The Perfect Audio Performance

    The CXU features 5 separate Wolfson WM8740 DACs and our proprietary ATF audio upsampling (more info on that genius tech here). Through these, all your inputs get upsampled to 24–bit/192kHz hi–res quality, meaning all your audio has even more acute detail and warm depth. You’ll be able to enjoy musical nuances that you’ve never heard before in tracks and films that you’ve heard a thousand times. A dedicated 2–channel analogue stereo output also guarantees the best possible stereo sound, and Pure Audio mode allows shut down of all video processing to prevent any audio signal interference resulting in a true hi–fi performance when it’s needed.

    Video That Opens Your Eyes

    The CXU uses DARBEE Visual Presence technology to deliver stunning video playback; it provides greater clarity and increases the perception of depth resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. Processing is adjustable, allowing you to customise the visual enhancement to suit your needs. And for ultimate flexibility, you can set your preferred DARBEE mode individually for each of the different video inputs. To make the most of the powerful video processing, 4k upsampling and 2D to 3D scaling from all video sources are also included, so you can enjoy a cinema quality ‘3D’ experience, whatever the source.

    A Complete Digital Hub

    Whatever source, the CXU can handle it, making it a true home hub. The CXU has 2 HDMI inputs, digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, and 3 USB inputs allowing connection to almost any source – all up–sampled or processed for the best possible audio or audio–visual experience. The front HDMI input even supports MHL, for exceptional mobile device playback from smart phones or a digital camcorder.

    11 Audio And Video Sources Can Be Played Through The CXU

    • HDMI input 1/MHL

    Easy To Use

    An intuitive on–screen colour display and simple, user–friendly controls, plus an easy to use backlit remote mean all of CXU’s features are easy to use, even in the dark. The remote control for the CXU will also control matching Cambridge Audio AVRs or hi–fi amplifiers.

    Network Playback

    The CXU also has a wired or wireless network connection. This means it can connect to your home network and play back audio, video or photo files from UPnP and DLNA servers and from NAS drives. So you can seamlessly access all your media from the comfort of your sofa and all of it will take advantage of the hi–res upsampling and DARBEE video processing for an incredible home cinema experience.

    Twin Outputs

    Separately configurable, twin HDMI outputs send high quality video to multiple displays or 3D video to a display and separate HDMI audio to a non–3D AV receiver. An Audio Return Channel (ARC) is built in too, allowing the audio signal from a connected TV to be sent to the CXU ? with no need for a separate audio output from the TV.

    Analogue Superiority

    Make the most of the Wolfson DACs and audio upsampling on–board by connecting the multichannel analogue audio outputs to the multichannel inputs of the perfectly matched CXR200 AV Receiver. This takes advantage of the highest quality digital to analogue conversion and 24–bit/192kHz audio upsampling in the CXU and leaves your AVR to amplify it all.

    Digital Volume Control

    The CXU can be connected directly to a power amplifier or active speakers for a simple and highly versatile system, with no worries about volume control. Whether using digital or analogue outputs, you can control volume direct from the CXU remote.
