"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 I found the set-up sheet somewhat misleading Despite the above, I am happy with this amplifier, it's clarity, working very well with my speakers and overall response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade to the Quad? With both Rogers LS7s and LS 3/5As as monitors in the house, I needed an amp that would do them justice. I was hoping for something as good as a Quad 405-2 type set up with the LS7s and actually, this amp is better than that, significantly. The mid and upper frequency responsiveness is very true, but the bass definition and roll off is really important for these speakers and the CXA60 can handle that very comfortable at high and low volumes. And the quality of the DACs is also acts as an upgrade to the rest of the system. Why didn’t I buy one sooner?!?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Amp Not in any sense a Hi Fi geek, but decided to buy this as a decent amp together with turntable and speakers. Really noticeable improvement in quality of sound whether bluetoothed from other devices or from record collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp I bought the CXA60 a month ago and I paired Temporarily with my old mission 762i. It has brought these speakers back to life again. It is a fantastic amp very detailed and Powerful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - even better service I initially bought this from your Chalk Farm branch in July this year. In December, I noticed a minor fault with the item. I took it in to the Holborn branch where this was tested acknowledged and replaced with a new unit in just a few minutes. I was really impressed with this service - although not surprised as it continued the fantastic experience I have always had having been a customer for over 16 years Many thanks to you all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just amazing amp Bought yesterday with a Monitor audio w10 subwoofer. They've just hit 10hrs of playing time, and they are breaking in nicely now. I predominantly listen to EDM, the bass from the cxa60, combined with Monitor audio rs6 and the w10 is outstanding. It's a massive step up from my azure 351a. It's not a one trick pony though, the guitar riffs from dire straits and The Doors are absolutely amazing. I can't get enough of this amp, speaker combination. The only draw back I've found is my neighbours have all stopped speaking to me! I highly recommend this amp....and go for the sun too. Absolutely awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products, great price and great advice. I've bought an amplifier, CD player, speakers and cable from Richer Sounds Cardiff and have been delighted with the service, advice and the products I purchased. Wouldn't buy from anyone else.
