Richer Sounds exclusive model

"If you've already got a good DAC, the Cambridge CXC transport is a no-brainer." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review.

Transport-only design

The Cambridge CXC is a CD transport only, so inside you'll only find 'half' of what's usually inside a CD player. Although this may sound unconventional, it has many benefits. The most obvious of these is cost effectiveness, but there are sonic benefits to be had, too. Without an onboard DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the power supply only has to drive the CD transport. By being dedicated to this task it can provide a clean, stable power supply for the highest performance possible at its price.

Pair with your choice of DAC
Another advantage is increased flexibility. Chose to match with one of the Cambridge CXA digital amplifiers or use your own choice of DAC entirely. By starting with such a high quality transport design, the CXC could see you through many system and DAC upgrades without being in the least bit out of place.

S3 servo
Rather than using 'off the shelf' CD software, Cambridge uses its own S3 servo processor. Dedicated to CD music playback rather than the multi-purpose disc readers, the CXC maximises the full potential of your audio CDs. With state-of-the-art error correction your CDs simply sound more realistic, more dynamic and more detailed than with other players.

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

Dedicated to the finest sound from CD possible, the Cambridge CXC CD transport redefines CD playback quality at its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definate improvement on my Marantz cd6003 I bought this hoping it would push the fidelity of my sound even further, and I was very happy that it gave even more insight into the information on the cd than my Marantz cd6003 (used purely as a transport into my topping D50s) did - bit of a flimsy drawer, but otherwise, nicely made, and with plenty of internal space to allow for future upgrades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed Bag...turned out fine though... I purchased the CXC after seeing all the good reviews on the internet. I previously tried my preferred choice which was the Audiolab CDt through my Chord Qutest. The CXC got delivered, I unboxed it, set it up and turned it on. It made a buzzing noise and died! Phoned Richer Sounds and arranged to swap it. I swapped it over and thankfully the new one has been fine. Sound quality wise it's better and much more dynamic than my original preference. With a Merlin Black Widow FE power cable this CD transport is absolutely worthy of partnering my Qutest. Sound quality is shockingly good for the £225! Cost less than my TQ speaker cable...there's nothing out there that will touch it for the money. Buy with confidence my fellow audiophiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Buy If you already own a DAC then this is a brilliant transport. I was going to live without a CD player when my old Cyrus unit died but I'm so pleased that I took the plunge and bought this. It's an incredibly detailed player and the build quality and looks are spot on too. Typically great service from Andy in the Prestwich store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fabulous cd transport. You do need a amp with it as it only play cd's. That's the great thing about it and hence the quality. The only negative is the display don't show remaining track time but not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service Store held my CD player whilst I could get in. Then when I had to rearrange collection, no questions just complete flexibility. Excellent service. CD player (CXC) worth the wait too. A big step up in clarity over my old Cambridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CXC Cambridge easy to set up, good quality at a fair price. Well reasoned advice from Andi at the Cardiff shop
