    "Once we spend a decent amount of time listening, it becomes clear that few rivals have the resolution to challenge the CXA61." 'What Hi-Fi' - 5 Star review.

    The perfect balance of features and sound quality

    Just as with its award-winning predecessors, the CXA61 puts sound quality first. The 60 watt amp delivers a smooth, yet detailed sound that’s at home with a vast expanse of music genres. A built-in ESS DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) means you get the best from your digital, as well as analogue sources. Thanks to standard Bluetooth, you can now stream music in top quality aptX HD. All this, plus the Lunar Grey CXA61 looks more stylish than ever.

    DAC for digital
    Featuring a built-in, reference standard ESS Sabre ES9010K2M DAC, the CXA61 works wonders with your digital audio and video sources. With two optical digital inputs and one coaxial, you can connect up to three digital sources, such as a games console, TV and a CD transport – the Cambridge Audio CXC makes the perfect match.

    Stream wireless music via Bluetooth
    Now a standard fitment, Bluetooth offers simple, wireless music streaming from your mobile, tablet or laptop. The Bluetooth receiver is compatible with aptX HD, giving the highest quality sound possible from Bluetooth, right up to 24bit/48kHz. You also get the benefit of the sound passing through the ESS Sabre DAC, meaning precise, detailed sound from all your streamed music.

    Now you can enjoy USB audio, with Hi-Res sound
    New to the CXA61 is an asynchronous USB input with Hi-Res handling for the best in computer audio. You can connect up to your laptop, PC or server and stream Hi-Res music, right up to studio-quality 32bit/384kHz and DSD256. As well as improving the sound over your computer’s soundcard, the asynchronous ‘direct control’ link also greatly reduces jitter, for lower distortion and more precise audio.

    Analogue audio – including front socket
    The Cambridge CXA61 also has four line level inputs - enough for all your analogue sources. A pre-amp output is also fitted – ideal for power amp upgrades. There's a 3.5mm front-mounted input, perfect for connecting an MP3 player or smartphone for quick and convenient playback. Other handy connections include an RCA subwoofer output, headphone socket and connections for two pairs of speakers.

    Connected for installs
    A wide range of control sockets make the CXA61 ideal as part of a more complex home installation. RS-232C, IR input, trigger in/out sockets and Control Bus RCA phonos mean the CXA61 is more than happy to work with a wide range home automation control systems.

    Vibration resistant casing
    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. Isolating feet help adsorb vibration for a further reduction in distortion.

    Sleek new finish
    The CXA61 is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXA61 a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CXC CD transport, CXN V2 network player and also a great match for the Cambridge Audio AX range. The Lunar Grey front panel contrasts with the black top and sides and blends well with both black and silver separates.

    Don’t choose between an amp with features and sound quality. With the Cambridge Audio CXA61 you can have it all.

    ”A great streamer just got even better.” ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

    Powerful processor

    The V2 version of the CXN features a faster processor for a richer Internet radio experience and a greater level of playback control. Introducing mpeg-DASH and HLS compatibility, the CXN V2 makes the most of Internet radio. BBC radio stations now sound better than ever when available at 320 kbps.

    A sound emphasis
    As ever, the CXN V2 puts sound quality first. Using twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), each channel has its own DAC to process its own information. This gives a more precise and accurate sound quality with improved stereo imaging. When combined with the 2-Pole Dual Differential Bessel filter, the DACs help give the CXN V2 outstanding levels of clarity and transparency of sound.

    AFT2 Up-Sampling for the ultimate detail and least jitter
    The Cambridge CXN V2 improves sound quality still further with an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) up-sampling 'stretches' the music to give the highest resolution possible. Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll hear every detail, including every deep breath, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real.

    Stream all your stored music - including Hi Res files
    With UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) compatibility it's easy to connect the Cambridge CXN V2 to your home network and stream from your NAS drive, hard drive, PC or laptop. The CXN V2 accepts a wide range of files, including many Hi Res formats. ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis are all supported, making this a highly flexible streamer.

    Connect to Internet radio and Spotify Connect
    In addition to supporting over 20,000, easy to access Internet radio stations, the CXN V2 is compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world’s most popular streaming service and the CXN V2 has Spotify Connect built-in (requires Spotify Premium account). If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. The CXN V2 also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer Radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.

    AirPlay 2 and optional Bluetooth
    In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the CXN V2 is also compatible with Apple's AirPlay 2 streaming. Use it with your iPhone, iPad PC or Mac and wireless stream your iTunes library or other compatible music services. Connect the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.

    Built-in digital pre-amp - just add active speakers
    If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in digital pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analogue outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance via the CXN V2.

    Pro connections
    When it comes to connecting up, the CXN V2 is in the pro league. The highlight is the fitment of XLR balanced sockets. When used with a compatible amplifier, such as the matching Cambridge CXA81, these connections give the ultimate analogue link possible, with greatly improved resistance to interference.

    Quad USB interface
    Added to this there are no fewer than four USB interfaces. The front-mounted socket is ideal for connecting devices such as a USB media stick. At the back, two interfaces take care of a more permanently connected media device plus the optional Bluetooth dongle port. A Type-B asynchronous USB input gives direct connection to your PC or Mac. This makes the ideal connection for hooking up your computer as it effectively 'controls' the PC's output for the best sound quality possible – with greatly reduced jitter.

    Digital in and out
    Optical and coaxial digital sockets are provided for both inputs and outputs. This lets you connect other digital components and take advantage of the quality DAC built into the CXN V2. It also means you can plug the CXN V2 into your AV receiver or digital stereo amp. Analogue phono outputs are also standard.

    New Stream Magic app*
    For the best streaming experience with your CXN V2, simply download the free Stream Magic app on your Android or Apple iOS device. Developed exclusively by Cambridge Audio, this bespoke app offers a customisable hub for fast access to the streaming features you use the most.

    Vibration resistant casing
    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. Isolating feet help adsorb vibration for a further reduction in distortion.

    Sleek new finish
    The CXN V2 is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXN V2 a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CX digital amplifiers, CD transport and also a great match for the Cambridge Audio AX range. The Lunar Grey front panel contrasts with the black top and sides and blends well with both black and silver separates.

    For a comprehensively equipped network streamer that puts sound first, the Cambridge CXN V2 is still the one to beat.

    *Please note that the Stream Magic app is not compatible with the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this bundle! Cambridge Audio CXA61 & CXN V2 I upgraded my old Yamaha Hi-Fi system to the Cambridge Audio CXA61 amplifier & Streamer CXN V2. I have kept the Yamaha CD player and speakers (6 Ohm impedance) for the time being, pending of subsequent upgrade. The improve in sound quality is already notable. The set up of the CXN was a breeze. The phone StreamMagic is OK for internet radio and works also with TIDAL High-Fi. However, for TIDAL, I prefer the PC USB interface using Amarra Luxe software that allows EQ and set up the upsampling of the DAC. Phone technical advice by Stephen and Luis of the Leeds store was superb and helped me to make my mind up and with the quote and phone purchase and arranging the delivery. I highly recommend this product.
