"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 Clear and powerful amp Clear & clean sound, good power and very well built. Would be nice to have built-in bluetooth and phono stage but it's still awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity I was thinking between Marantz pm6006 and this Cambridge CXA60. Thanks to Richer Sounds crew advise I took the Cambridge. And it was a best choice. Lots of controlled power, clear crispy sound and great integrated DAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge sound, understated design, built to last Was impressed with the What HiFi review and bought on basis - was very glad I did. Paired with Project 1 Xpression Carbon UKX and a pair of Monitor Audio Bronze 2s, sounds phenomenal - rich and detailed. Love the unobtrusive design. Has more grunt than I will ever need - an amp for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Screen I was listing to a CD of LCD Soundsystem's "Black Screen" track from their album "American Dream" through the CXA60. After about 7 minutes into the track the vocals are gone and it is just a big booming synth and a gentle piano playing at the same time. The amp handles the delicate piano and the glorious synth. You can feel the warmth of the synth and hear each note of the piano as they complement each other in a stunning musical dance. The CXA60 handles this last 5 minutes of the track amazingly. I was meant to leave the house but had to stay and listen right until the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit Had this about 3weeks after my ancient mission 1 amp gave up-it had good reviews and has not disappointed .Great sound and easy to set up -I play through monitor bronze 2 speakers and my main feeds are a Cambridge azure CD player and my tv-it arrived in good time .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Richer and Poorer I purchased the Cambridge cxa60 as an upgrade to a Denon amp I'd had for about 5 years,and boy am I glad I did.The soundstage immediately was bigger and with the plethora of connections at the back of the Cambridge I am now able to use an optical connection from my CD player and Chromecast Audio,can't believe how much better everything sounds. The only downside is I've had to take on a new paper round to pay for it,which at 52 isn't ideal,ooh me back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Digital Revolution......Finally!!! So far a fantastic upgrade to my 10yo Cambridge Azur 540A. Whole system is singing!!! Built in quality DAC and digital input options offer a marked improvement in sound. Speakers appear to have found more bass! Looks the part but most importantly sounds superb for what turned out to be a great price.
