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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart unit and great picture Bought recently and played a few DVDs. BluRay is brilliant. Tried an old Star Trek SD which produced an astonishingly good picture. Very impressed. Not tried HDR yet. OLED TV. Sound out via HDMI no problems. Played CDs as well, good sound out via Coax. Can play CDs without using TV. Looks great. Good controller. Worth the expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder! I like the versatility of this player. I love playing SACD & DVDA music discs as well as a good Blu-Ray film. This player does them all and performs really well. This player does a good job of 3D playback too which I know isn't fashionable with TV manufacturers who are dropping this feature on new sets but there are plenty of us out there who do appreciate this. I haven't used the 4K UHD features yet but as an audio and BD disc player this is excellent choice and can really shine in a good Hi-Fi set up. Well done Cambridge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb piece of kit! Having been toying with the idea of upgrading my existing Blu-ray player for some time, it made sense to consider the variety of 4K/UHD players now on the market. It is fair to say that the Cambridge CXU HD is a little on the pricey side, but quite simply put, it is worth every penny. If you are passionate about your disc collection of any description, you will not be disappointed with this universal player. My existing Blu-ray collection was noticeably up-scaled seeming brighter and more vivid and even breathed new life into my CD's via an external DAC. Of course where the Cambridge really begins to shine is when it's spins a UHD Blu-ray. I treated myself to Attenborough's Blue Planet 2 and Planet Earth 2 and what this player does with the colours and clarity is just jaw dropping. If you are in the market for a new player within this range, do not look else where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top class UHD player Exceptional 4K player, Blu-ray upscaling is first class as well. If you can handle no analogue audio outs you will not be dissapointed in It’s performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blueray Hueray! Excellent piece of kit that more than lives up to the reviews. Blueray discs are rendered beautifully with clarity, faithful colour presentation and great definition. Similarly, soundtracks and CDs sound crisp, accurate and well defined with fantastic dynamic range and frequency response. Sound is un-cluttered and un-hyped. The CXUHD partners seamlessly with the Cambridge CXR 120 AV receiver - and were set up together with a minimum amount of head-scratching. Music and movies are a delight and are now motivating an up-grade to a 4k UHD TV to get the best out of the player and AV receiver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy awesome Purchased this about 2 months ago and was very dubious about spending so much on a DVD player,but wow there right what they say you get what you pay for it's brilliant I had a top Panasonic player before and I thought that was good but this is like the Messi of DVD players , first off the sound is fantastic I haven't got Dolby atmos amp but my Yamaha amp 673 and monitor audio sound system sounds brand new again I'm hearing things I've never heard before, watched Dunkirk and the scene with the stukas now sounds like screaming banshees when there diving ,as for the picture same again on another level planet earth 2 looks fantastic, brilliant machine get yourself one you won't be dissapointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality Had this for nearly 2 weeks and so far have watched 3 4K Bluray films and 4 hd Bluray films. The picture qualty is superb with 4K material and the upscaled hd not far behind. This has replaced a Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD which gave perfect service for over 5 years and this was a factor in buying the CXUHD player. On the performance so far can thoughly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go get one! Really easy to set up, a multitude of options to choose from for both video and audio to get the best possible picture and sound from whatever hardware is connected, excellent build quality, very pleasing to the eye and whisper quiet in operation. Paired with my OLED TV the resulting picture from 4k blu ray is stunning with vibrant colour, excellent dynamic range and crystal clear, detailed video. Planet Earth 2 in 4k is a revelation, as are The Revenant, The Martian and Life of Pi compared to my previous 4k unit; like chalk and cheese. HD blu ray benefits from the up scaling properties and produces a superbly rounded picture with more depth and finesse. I also connected Apple TV (not the 4k version) through the HDMI input port and I have to say the results amazed me. Picture quality for the HD and SD films in my library has improved significantly, so much so that it has breathed new life into my Apple TV content. This was an unexpected yet extremely pleasant surprise and I am currently watching many of the films I have not seen for a while. A superb piece of kit and I am really pleased to have bought this player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning all round Just had this 2 weeks, 4k is amazing not only picture but sound too. Downside not many new films available yet.
