"A great £500 amplifier that looks and sounds the part this Cambridge is a big success"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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, great sounding & good looking After much deliberation I opted to upgrade from all-in-one systems to a hi-fi unit. I chose this amp after returning a faulty Yamaha amp/network player unit and I'm very pleased with the outcome. I have SX80 speakers and the CXC running in to it and the output is immense: great room-filing, warm and rich sound even at low volume. As this is my first 'proper' system I am unable to say how it sounds relative to other manufacturers or to be able to say the impact each component has on the overall sound. However I can say that the amp is great looking, simple to wire-up and tweak the sound. There are a couple of things I'd like to highlight: 1) The remote includes buttons to control the amp (CXA60/80); CXC (CD); and CXN (network). This will be great if you have these items, but a mild frustration if not. 2) Relative to the CXC the display and lights are much brighter. I purchased the bluetooth adapter which plugs in to the USB; I understand the CXA80 has this built in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knew it would be good but expectations have been exceeded. I have only been using my CXA60 for just over a week now but in that time it has shown itself to be an exceptional piece of equipment which is capable of extracting the best sound from partnering speakers. The speakers in question being Jordan Eikona 2 VTLs, the Eikona 2 being a state of the art full range drive unit in this configuration of the VTL (vented transmission line) cabinets. When I first got the speakers I drove them with the Yamaha AS501 amp, the Yamaha is a good amp but I always had the feeling it was extracting everything that the Jordans had to offer, particularly the treble area I found weak, lacking sparkle and detail, a little veiled, this was the area that I hoped would be improved by changing to the CXA60. The improvement that I was after was definitely there when the amp was changed, what I didn't expect was an across-the-board improvement in sound quality, This amp will no doubt get the best from any speaker, highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp at a budget price One of the best amplifiers I have owned, a beautiful warm sound, with great dynamics , deep bass and shimmering treble and very detailed too, I am hearing new sounds on old CD's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound. Excellent detail. I bought this amp as a start to upgrade my hifi. I like a lot of detail and being a drummer I like quite a bright sound to bring out the percussion. The CXA60 delivers. I am used to listening through a small amp and speakers in the office or through an AV amp in the living room. Adding the CXA60 have brought a new level of detail in the midrange that was missing before. I'm just using a google chromecast audio to stream from my server at the moment but will be looking to add the CXN soon and then replace my 10 year old Mission M33is shortly after that. Initially I was undecided whether to upgrade the speakers of amp first. I was advised by Kaz the store manager in Oxford that the amp would be the best bet. He wasn't wrong. I am looking forward to the next step. Whether it's the CXN or speakers I don't know but I'll be back in the store soon for some more advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is as good as the reviews say. Good detailed sound, lively. After my Arcam amp it brings out a whole range of previously unheard detail, rather like hearing the music afresh. The amp is beautifully designed and constructed with an overall quality feel so that the mechanical operation of the controls are a delight. Powerful enough for my needs producing a wide, deep, detailed sound that you can feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent amp I love the simplicity and design and quality of sound. Speaker wire attachment a bit fiddly but minor issue. My first new amp for about 20 years and I am very pleased. Plenty of inputs. Handy remote.
