"The most well-connected and exciting-sounding package out there" What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2016

Quality engineering for a precise sound
At the heart of the CXA60 amp is a super-efficient, fully symmetrical Class A/B amplifier. This ensures a precise, even sound with excellent separation between the right and left channels. Powering the amp is a large toroidal transformer giving the CXA60 its powerful, dynamic sound and a healthy 60W per channel power, enough to drive most speakers to high levels in all but the very largest rooms.

Built-in DAC
The Cambridge CXA60 has been designed to work just as well with digital sources as analogue ones. So Cambridge has fitted a high-quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) inside the amp. Usually found in its dedicated DacMagic range, the Wolfson WM8740 DAC offers high-quality sound that could actually improve your existing digital sources. With two optical digital inputs and one coaxial one, up to three digital sources can be connected, such as games console, TV and a CD transport such as the matching Cambridge CXC.

Optional Bluetooth
Add the optional Cambridge BT100 Bluetooth dongle as a cost option and you'll get Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone, tablet or other compatible device. Not only will the music from your linked device sound superb through the unit's sophisticated DAC technology, but it's also compatible with the higher grade Bluetooth aptX - designed to give the highest audio quality and the closest yet to a conventional wired connection.

Analogue connectivity
Just because it has class-leading digital connectivity doesn't mean that Cambridge has forgotten about analogue connectivity. The Cambridge CXA60 has four line level inputs, easily enough for the vast majority of systems. There's a 3.5mm front-mounted input, perfect for connecting an MP3 player or smartphone for quick and convenient playback. Other handy connections include an RCA subwoofer output, headphone socket and connections for two pairs of speakers.

Sleek style
The CXA60 is part of the totally redesigned CX-Series. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXA60 a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the matching CD transport 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 amp from both mechanical and electrical interference, helping to improve clarity and reduce background noise.

For an amplifier that treats all your music sources, whether digital or analogue, with the same high regard, the Cambridge CXA60 is a talented all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality equipment and service I'm very pleased to have bought this Cambridge amp and CD player together with some excellent Monitor Audio Bronze 6 speakers. I'm still running the latter in but already the sound is outstanding and the whole kit looks great. Reading branch gave me some top advice that supported the research I'd already done on line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of equipment. I bought the CXA60 a few weeks ago and installed it as soon as I got home. Setting it up was simple and straight forward, including the bi-wiring for my Tannoy speakers. The sound it produces is rich, full and clean. I am impressed by the depth and clarity of the sound. I have never been this happy with an amplifier before. The reviews certainly do it justice and I'm so glad I invested my time in doing the research into this fantastic product. It was well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a decent price Purchase to replace a broken NAD320BEE after 12 years sterling service. Difference in sound quality from the Cambridge is easy to hear having now lived with the new amp for a few months. I only feed it from a SONOS Bridge and Im very impressed with the quality to the extend that I can now hear the difference in lower quality streams. Only minor niggle is that you cant easily see what the volume is set at but given i control volume from the Sonos app, thats not too much of a problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cxa60 review After reading the customer reviews on richer sounds website I decided to buy the Cambridge cxa60 to replace my 2 year old marantz pm6006. my marantz sounds fine but lack a bit in power. Having had the Cambridge for 2 weeks now I’m ecstatic! It has a more than enough power to drive my monitor audio silver 6’s. It sound detailed and has amazing stereo imaging. Connectivity is great and it is solidly built. This is buy far the best amplifier iv owned. Having been a customer at richer sound Leicester for 14 year and changing my system frequently this show how good this amplifier is. I would also recommend the cxc In partnership with the cxa60 if you have a cd collection. It’s a match made in heaven. Great service from the team at the Leicester branch. Very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound I'm really impressed with this amplifier. It replaced an old Cambridge that had done good service, but the sound from the new one is fantastic
Date published: 2018-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful staff, good value products I bought a new CD player (I know, but I'm old) and amplifier after getting lots of helpful advice from the staff who also came round to wire up the system. The prices of the gear stood up well to comparisons and I feel I can consult them any time for more advice or help.
