”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 Superb as a network player I bought primarily for use as a network media player. Plays my full rips in an AVCHD over the network. Superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The all rounder that excels at everything With the OPPO no longer available, Cambridge Audio CXUHD is the GO-TO bluray player. It just plays everything that you can throw at it. Built on the OPPO 203 frame I just wish it had a USB 3.0 input on the front panel as well. Anyways that is a minor niggle. For those who may not be aware, this is the only player that plays Dolby ATMOS on .MKV media.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome player.. Plays anything you ask for.. I just wanted to ask that does this player has inbuilt bluetooth?? And upto howmany TB HDD does it support?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture insight, almost perfect Dolby Vision Owning the player for one week now. I've Enjoyed rewatching 4K, standard Blu-ray's and DVD's. The player does a great job at extracting the best out of all the discs. Low quality DVD's cannot be resurrected to pristine visuals of course, bu good quality ones really shine. CDs sound great through the coaxial exit linked to my cd player DAC. Occasional hint of highlight posterization in Dolby vision playback is the only fault I can detect, to be picky. Last, it's a pity the gorgeous stock images in the menu have been erased with the latest SW update. Any chance to have them back? Marco

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build and great picture and sound. Great picture quality and silent as it has no fans, all cooling is passive. So far has played every file I've thrown at it. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality player I was recommended this player by Daniel at Richer Sounds Kingston and it came out the best on Which magazine . The quality of the Cambridge CX UHD is incredible both picture and sound are stunning. The finish is impeccable. Highly recommend this player and the service in the store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile, fully featured .. Having specific requirements this was the only player that met all my requirements, namely the ability to play my backed up movies (1:1) from my NAS whilst retaining all metadata, bluray menu, and bit stream lossless audio. If i could request one area to improvement, it would be HDR to SDR tone mapping for projector use.
