"A multi-talented universal player that performs brilliantly with both movies and music..."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

Universal disc playback
One for the music lover as well as the film buff, the Cambridge CXU plays back a massive range of disc formats. As well as Blu-ray, DVD and CD it will also play SACD, HDCD and DVD-Audio discs, making it a truly universal player. You can also output the sound via HDMI audio, 7.1 or two channel phono, making it ideal for all types of AV receivers and amps.

Class-leading sound quality
Five dedicated Wolfson WM8740 DACs mean that every channel is decoded to the very highest quality. Anagram Technologies Q5 192 kHz up-sampling further enhances audio quality whether playing from CD, DVD, Blu-ray or any other supported format - you can learn more about this here

Lightning fast Mediatek decoder and 4K video scaling
At the heart of the CXU is a lightning fast Mediatek decoder. This not only ensures excellent compatibility with different formats but also the highest quality video. 4K video upscaling is also standard, meaning you get to make the most of your 4K TV, with your existing Blu-ray films upscaled to 4K resolution.

DARBEE Visual Presence
For total and professional control of the picture, the CXU comes equipped with DARBEE Visual Presence. It provides greater clarity and increases the perception of depth resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience. It also lets you tailor the video settings for each digital input, via a clear on-screen display, for the perfect picture balance from each source.

Network streaming
With built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet sockets you can connect up the CXU to your home network. Thanks to both DLNA and UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) it's easy to link up to any PCs, laptops or NAS drive units on the network and stream audio, video or photo content.

The complete digital hub
More than just a disc player, the CXU is a hub for all your digital sources. With two HDMI inputs, optical and digital inputs plus three USBs, you can plug in a huge range of digital devices. All of these can then be up-sampled or processed using the CXU's top spec processors - giving exceptional sound and vision. The front HDMI input will also support MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) letting you connect up your compatible mobile device.

Sleek style
The CXU is part of the totally redesigned CX-Series. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXU a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the matching AV receivers. 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.

Upgrade your entire home entertainment experience, with the amazing Cambridge CXU.
