”Accuracy and unshowiness make the CXUHD one of the outstanding Ultra HD Blu-ray players we've seen (and heard).” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review and Group test Winner. Tested at £700.

Equipped for the finest film formats - HDR and Dolby Vision

With the ability to support discs up to 3840 x 2160 (4k) resolution, the CXUHD is the ideal match for your UHD 4K TV. Taking this to the next level, it's also compatible with the HDR and Dolby Vision formats. When used with a compatible TV, these formats give you exceptional brightness, contrast and intense realism that gets closer than ever to studio master.

Transport only for the highest purity sound and vision
By dispensing with a built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), Cambridge Audio have reduced the potential for electrical interference within the casing. This helps in making both the sound and picture as pure and uncorrupted as possible. It also gives you the choice of which DAC to use. Choose between the one built-in to your home cinema receiver or, for the ultimate sound quality, a dedicated standalone DAC.

Universal disc playback
Designed for the music lover as well as the film buff, the Cambridge CXUHD plays back a massive range of disc formats. As well as UHD Blu-ray, Blu-ray (including 3D), DVD and CD it will also play SACD, and DVD-Audio discs, making it a truly universal player.

Twin HDMI outputs
Twin HDMI outputs (HDMI 2.0 and 1.4 audio only) make the CXUHD a flexible playback device. Use one HDMI to output directly to your TV, leaving the other free to carry the audio to your home cinema receiver or amp.

HDMI and twin USB inputs
With HDMI and USB inputs, you can use the CXUHD as a digital hub. The HDMI input is ideal for connecting up a Chromecast, Apple TV or other device and accessing a huge array of smart TV content. The twin USB3.0 sockets get the most out of any smartphone, camcorder or other device connected to them.

Network streaming
With built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet sockets you can connect up the CXUHD 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.

Smooth style
The CXU is part of the highly-reviewed CX-Series. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXUHD a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the matching AV receivers. Yet it's far more than just a good-looker; the design helps the sound quality, too. With rigid, metal construction and low-resonance, the casing helps shield the player from both mechanical and electrical interference, helping to improve clarity and reduce background noise.

Maximise your movie and music enjoyment, with the multi-tasking Cambridge Audio CXUHD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really worth the time I spent researching I am so pleased that I purchased the Cambridge UHD Blu-ray player. I usually spend around £300+ on such items but, whilst researching, I kept coming back to the Cambridge, boy am I glad I did, everything from the outer packaging to the packing inside, not forgetting the unit itself, is pure class, British at that. It is really simple to set, practically does it itself. So far only tried a standard disc and a blu-ray disc. I had a old top of the range Panasonic prior, but the picture for the standard disc was equal, if not better to the picture I got on the old panasonic, so you can imagine what I am going to say about the picture, and sound, for the blu-ray, well you already know. I did ask the RS guy if I there anything better and he did say then Oppo, I asked "what the oppo UDP 203" and he said no the 205, which at over a £1000 re-assured me I was making the right choice. As soon as The unit was set up updates were available to down load. Don't get me wrong, I am no expert on anything such as vision and sound but I do know I have made the right choice,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update of blue ray player Not much option if you want to be able to play all formats - all players are expensive. It does the job and does it well in audio and visual output and its made in the UK where the best stuff comes from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perchasing cambridge audio I purchased the first generation blue ray player I have since updated to the latest 4k version, I am extremely pleased with the machine and would recommend it to the general public who enjoy films and music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great video and sound Bought the Cambridge a couple of weeks ago and have not been disappointed with the quality of video and audio playback. 4k stuff looks great, as should be expected from a premium machine but I have also been impressed with the 1080p up-scaling as well as the improvement in SD representation. After considering alternatives I chose this machine following review research, a demo in the Newcastle store and a degree of brand loyalty given I had previously owned a 751BD which I would probably still be using if 4k had never arrived. Although pricey, its built very solidly and should last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overload your eyes in ears! Stunning picture and awesome sound. You want the best this is it! The detail it uncovers is truly amazing. Colours are bright and vibrant without ever been over bearing. It paints a symphony of sound that will have you lost in your cds for days. Be prepared for your jaw to drop as you live this new life of 4k at its best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent media player Plays every media file I have thrown at it. Sound is extremely detailed picture looks stunning. Does a great job of up-scaling low res video. The only thing I can come up with as a negative is the remote buttons could be layed out better, ie. The subs button at the bottom is small and close to other buttons making it a bit awkward to get at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture, sound and build, except the remote Bought this to replace a Panasonic DMP UB900, which itself replaced a Denon DBT 3313. The Denon is a fanless transport only, superb build quality and while the panasonic offered the benefit of 4k it could also be quite loud. The CXUHD is the best of both, transport only (so no money wasted on electrics which I would by pass) 4k capability and build quality almost on a par with the Denon but far superiour to the panasonic and with Dolby Vision capability to boot. The unit itself is aesthetically pleasing, while I would have preferred a metal finished remote, it is still well designed with a better and more intuitive layout compared to both the Denon and panasonic. Both picture and sound are simply without flaw. Not a cheaper disc spinner and the main rival (oppo 203) is a now over a year old and offers an alternative if you need in built DAC capability.
