Richer Sounds exclusive model.

”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 Does everything I had hoped for. I've now owned it for 3 weeks and cannot find anything negative to say. It does everything that it says 'on the box' & does them well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING BOOST TO WHOLE SYSTEM BOUGHT 2 WEEKS AGO AND HAVE SOLD MY STEREO. THIS IS A TRULY SPLENDID UNIVERSAL DISC PLAYER AND COUPLED WITH A DENON 4400 AND MONITOR AUDIO RADIUS SPEAKERS HAS REPLACED OUR STEREO SO LESS CABLES AND LESS CLUTTER. THE EFFECT ON OUR BLURAY COLLECTION HAS BEEN EVEN MORE STUNNING, THE UPSCALING ABILITIES OF THIS DECK HAVE ASTOUNDED US. SEVERAL OLD FAVOURITES ARE GOING TO NEED REWATCHING NOT JUST FOR THE PICTURE(EVEREST) BUT ALSO THE SOUND (STAR TREK/IRON MAN). HAVEN'T VIEWED ANY 4K DISCS AS YET BUT BASED ON THE BLURAYS WE REALLY CAN'T WAIT. THIS PLAYER HAS UPGRADED VERY PART OF OUR SOUND SYSTEM, I GUESS IT'S LIKE VINYL, START WITH THE SOURCE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Review in Whats Hi-Fi does not match with 1.- This is a transport, not a player. 2.- If i want the one with the UK flag in front, i do not find it anyway. 3.- It can be use just in Europe, as zone 2. So if you want to bring it to america or southamerica (zones 1 & 4) would not work. Great product just for british (made for british, by british)!!

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.
