Richer Sounds exclusive model


"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.

Sleek style
The CXC is part of the totally redesigned CX-Series. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXC a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the digital amplifiers and network player. Yet it's far more than just a good-looking case - it helps the sound quality, too. 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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb transport Feeding my Arcam irDac-II, this refined transport helps the dac unwrap layers from audiophile recordings that I have not appreciated before. The combination beats some fairly expensive cd players I have come across before, and is well worth every penny. If you have a good DAC already, get this transport and revive that treasured CD collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got a good DAC? Try this!! I am using this with the internal dac on an Arcam SA20 Amp and they sound great together. I am enjoying my CDs again. As usual, great service from Richer Sounds Norwich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased buyer Bought this CXC transport 2 weeks ago to replace a quad 99 cdp-2 that sounds great but skips on a lot of cd's , so big boots to fill sound wise and i must say the CXC along with my Modi-Multibit Dac is a joy to listen to , going through my cd's and i can hear stuff i was not aware of before and it's nice to lose track of time listening to your music when it sounds this good ,this is definitely a great upgrade ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up, sounds amazing! Purchased a couple of weeks ago at the always helpful Southampton to. Given my budget of no more than £350 for a new CD player I was pointed in the direction of this CD Transport. Initially a bit dubious until I did a bit more research I thought I'd give it a go. So glad I did. Out of the box it was easy to set up; just plug it in, connect and play! In terms of the sound, I wasn't able to do a comparison between my old CD player (Cambridge Audio 640C) and the CXC but it sounds amazing to my ears with a very open sound. Obviously depends on how well produced the album is but listening to an album I've listened to a lot I'm pretty sure it's a step up from what I had before. Looks pretty good on the shelf too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo It’s been a while since I had a CD player and I’ve falling back in love with my cd collection. The dac is great, loads of options and I can also need play HD music through my phone to the dac. Great combo for a very reasonable price. Would definitely buy Cambridge audio again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system, unbelievable sound quality System was bought to replace an aging Pioneer CD. easy setup, the link in with the CXA is great so all Synced & on one remote. Sound quality is superb, CD loading is very smooth, overall design as usual with Cambridge is sleek, minimal and spot on. Would recommend to anybody looking for a modern CD player
