"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 Does everything I expected. My purchase decision was based on a combination of positive audio reviews, size and aesthetics. I am very pleased in all respects and have no regrets. As a replacement for a entry level AV amplifier, it is nice to rediscover depth of bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding amp I travelled to the Leicester branch to audition the Marantz 6006 amp after my much loved and equally much used 17 year old Talk Electronics amp ceased to function. After a couple of tracks from a few discs I had taken in and some conversation with the knowledgeable and very personable Gary, I decided to have a listen to this Cambridge amp, I was immediately taken by how much more realistic and dynamic it was over the admittedly good Marantz! The vocals (I listen to a lot of female vocalists) seemed more forward in the mix compared to my old Talk kit and the whole feel of the music just felt more accurate, emotive and driven but not at all forced. So, decision made, it was going to be the Cambridge. However after a wee bit more consideration about my ageing Marantz CD63 KI cd player (I had visions of it giving up the ghost just as I connected my new amp), I plumped for the Cambridge CXC transport too to make use of the amp's on board DAC. I'm glad I did, the coherence and synergy of these two bits of kit need to be heard! + Gary did me a cracking deal for the package too! Very happy. I would recommend this amp + transport combination. A massive thanks to Richer Sounds and especially to Gary at the Leicester branch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great partner for my CXN! My old Pioneer Tuner/Amplifier had developed a fault on one of it's outputs and having bought a Cambridge CXN streamer recently it seemed an appropriate time to upgrade my Hi-Fi. Together the CXA60 and the CXN sound superb.I am using Wharfdale Diamond speakers. Richer sounds has to be the best shopping experience available in Britain for people wishing to buy entertainment electronics, and all of the staff at their Cardiff branch are very helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks again guys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended product I bought Cambridge CXA60 amp around a month ago now and it really is a treat to listen to. I was looking to buy a cheaper setup but once I heard this amp in conjunction with Monitor Audio Bronze 2 speakers I decided to stretch my budget. Due to its extensive frequency range for the price it sounds great at low and high volumes. As the title says "highly recommended product"!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant all round amplifier for the price This is my second CA amplifier, bought it to upgrade from a Azur 340A SE. Great improvement in all round sound performance. Particularly good to have the better connectivity with the digital connections which make use of the built in DAC. Bought the CA CXC CD transport at the same time. Connecting them directly via optical cable does enhance performance. Upgraded Speakers to Dali Zensor 1's at the same time. Altogether a great setup that has brought new life to my existing CD collection and enabled me to enjoy my growing music download collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Amp Nice looking amp, I chose silver. Easy to set up, sounds great, only issue was with the treble adjustment. Initially I couldn't move the knob clockwise, it was so stiff it made me think it wasn't meant to move. Phoned the store and they confirmed it should move clockwise so i gave it some more and it clicked and released. Works fine now, this is why it received 4 stars not 5 as I expect everything to work properly on an item of this cost. Moved from a Sonos soundbar to this amp so I could play my old vinyl, no regrets yet. TV sounds great through it and I have a CD player rigged up as well. Also added a Jongo so I can Bluetooth music from phone if required, and a headphone Bluetooth sender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp. Great service Had originally bought the Topaz but decided I needed more oomph and a DAC so traded up to this. Great service experience and very happy with the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal replacement for old CA 640A After 13 years of loyal services my Cambridge Audio 640A retired . I bought the new CXA60 to replace it and the amp found its spot perfectly together with my cables, EPOS speakers and old CA CD.
