"If you've already got a good DAC, the Cambridge CXC transport is a no-brainer." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review.

Transport-only design

The Cambridge CXC is a CD transport only, so inside you'll only find 'half' of what's usually inside a CD player. Although this may sound unconventional, it has many benefits. The most obvious of these is cost effectiveness, but there are sonic benefits to be had, too. Without an onboard DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the power supply only has to drive the CD transport. By being dedicated to this task it can provide a clean, stable power supply for the highest performance possible at its price.

Pair with your choice of DAC
Another advantage is increased flexibility. Chose to match with one of the Cambridge CXA digital amplifiers or use your own choice of DAC entirely. By starting with such a high quality transport design, the CXC could see you through many system and DAC upgrades without being in the least bit out of place.

S3 servo
Rather than using 'off the shelf' CD software, Cambridge uses its own S3 servo processor. Dedicated to CD music playback rather than the multi-purpose disc readers, the CXC maximises the full potential of your audio CDs. With state-of-the-art error correction your CDs simply sound more realistic, more dynamic and more detailed than with other players.

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 CXC is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXC a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CX digital amplifiers, 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.

Dedicated to the finest sound from CD possible, the Cambridge CXC CD transport redefines CD playback quality at its price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good clean sound, and very quiet. I bought thhis to get my music off my computer (M1 Mac), where I was experiencing jitter and USB noise (high pitched crackling sounds), and make the return to CDs as my main source of music. The CXC fit the bill, along with an external DAC, and an ultra quiet linear power supply. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it Playing through Cambridge Audio Dacmagic 200M to CA CXA81 with Wharfedale Evo 4.2 speakers. Quality is spectacular by comparison with the Denon CD player I have been using up till now. Looking forward to working through my CD collection. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible detail, clarity and depth Running this into a Cambridge CXA81 delivers pin-sharp detail and incredible depth. A fantastic CD unit that dovetails perfectly with the amp's DAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure sound quality, does its job really well I bought the cd transport a few weeks ago as an upgrade to an old technics cd player. It works well with the DAC in the cx 81 amplifier. The CD transport is unforgiving on poor quality CDs though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall purchasing experience I ordered a Cambridge CXC CD drive a few weeks ago.Ordering was easy by phone with a very helpfull agent. The device was delivered within two days well packed and in perfect order. The CXC was easy to set up and delivers magnificant sound. My CDs sound better than ever before. One recomendation you may like to think about is cabelling advice. The device is not shipped with cables . It would be helpfull if your agents should remind purchasers of this and offer suitable cabelling if required.
