Bringing quality sound to home cinema

Whereas so many of the CXR120's competitors are packed with features but fall down badly on sound quality, this Cambridge AVR is different. Unlike others, Cambridge put sound quality at the very top of their priorities. Using fully discrete amplifiers which are kept separate from the processing and input stages, the CXR120 sounds more precise and detailed than rivals. Then there's the substantial power supply and an oversize low flux toroidal transformer - an expensive component that's critical to a piece of 'real' audio equipment. This helps provide a deep, sustained bass response as well as punchy dynamics. Whether you're enjoying a moving soundtrack or music from an audio source, the CXR120 simply sounds more 'real' than the competition.

4K upscaling
Taking video processing to the next level, the CXR120 can now upscale to 4K resolution. With 4K the horizontal pixel count of 1080p TV increases from 1920 to 3840. With 4K screens now firmly established, by equipping this receiver with 4K upscaling, Cambridge have engineered in comprehensive levels of future proofing. In the meantime you can also upscale signals to 1080p for the best image quality with Full HD TVs and projectors. The HDMI sockets also allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

Powerful processing
Using Cirrus Logic's powerful, 3-core, 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor), Cambridge has enabled full support for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution and Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats. DTS speaker re-mapping allows the playback of DTS-HD High Resolution or Master Audio formats with encoded height information on standard 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 speaker setups.

Stream all you stored music - including high resolution files
With UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) compatibility it's easy to connect the Cambridge CXR120 to your home network and stream from your NAS drive, hard drive, PC or laptop. The CXR120 accepts a wide range of files, including many high resolution formats. ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis are all supported, making this a highly flexible streaming solution.

Connect to internet radio and Spotify connect
In addition to supporting thousands of, easy to access, Internet radio stations, the CXR120 is also compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world's most popular streaming service and the CXR120 has Spotify Connect integrated into it. If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. Should you prefer other music services, the CXR120 also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer for radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.

DSD via HDMI
Designed for use with SACDs (Super Audio Compact Disc), DSD (Direct-Stream Digital) is a high resolution audio format that's available on many Blu-ray and universal DVD players. It offers sound quality that matches the best high resolution formats and is available from a wide range of SACD discs.

Optional Bluetooth
In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the CXN is also compatible with Bluetooth via an optionally available dongle. Connect up the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.

Flexible connectivity
The Cambridge CXN120 boasts no fewer than seven HDMI inputs. Of these, one is mounted at the front and is also compatible with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link). This lets you connect up your compatible smartphone and get the best possible transfer link for HD content. In addition to this you'll find twin HDMI outputs - ideal for dual screen set-ups. Other inputs include a 7.1 multi-channel analogue direct input that's ideal for use with your existing AV processor. Plus there's a comprehensive selection of optical, coaxial and analogue RCA inputs for a huge range of other sources. Finally, twin subwoofer outputs make this a true 7.2-channel AVR, with the ability to drive two subwoofers for a more even spread of powerful bass around your listening room.

Once you had to sacrifice features for sound quality with Cambridge AVRs. Now, with the CXR120 that's no longer the case; with 4K upscaling, fully featured HD streaming and comprehensive socketry, the CXR120 doesn't compromise on goodies - and it still sounds great!
