”The CXA61 takes top honours for another year.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 award-winner.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Amp. I have noticed a big improvement on the AXR85 which I had previously. Works really well with the MXN10 streamer and Monitor Audio Bronze speakers. Really happy so far with the amp bought from Richer Sounds Cambridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An outstanding amplifier in every respect. The CXA61 amplifier truly exceeded my expectations. Excellent dynamics with pinpoint imaging leads to a very immersive performance. The onboard ESS Sabre DAC adds refinement to digital sources. All in all, a superbly built and performing amplifier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I love this amp, has everything that's needed. I'm using it for my decks set up with multiple speakers which I can choose from whenever. Only slight gripe is the Bluetooth is inconsistent to connect to. Other than that, brilliant and looks the part too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge provides the ‘Great British Sound’ After much research into a replacement for my old ailing amp, and with a bit of professional advice from the helpful chaps at the Chester branch of Richer Sounds, I settled on the Cambridge Audio CXA 61 which I’m using to drive my Mission M74i’s, with great results. Punchy, unadulterated, clear listening with sparkling clarity. Great soundstage and imaging. Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and outstanding sound performance Purchased a few weeks ago and extremely happy with my new Cambridge Audio CXA61. A couple of years ago I burnt my CD and media collection on to my old MacMini and set this up as a music server, using Audirvāna as catalogue manager. My new CXA61 has on board high quality DAC which is perfect for the interface to the Mac, but most off all the sound quality is outstanding. The folks at Richer Sounds we very responsive to my order and I was able to collect next day after the order was processed. Great price too.
