"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.

Vibration resistant casing
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. Isolating feet help adsorb vibration for a further reduction in distortion.

Sleek new finish
The CXC is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXC a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CX digital amplifiers, network player and also a great match for the Cambridge Audio AX range. The Lunar Grey front panel contrasts with the black top and sides and blends well with both black and silver separates.

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 a fine couple Paired with the CXA81 The CXC works so well, wonderfully clear and defined sound. It looks great and paired with a perfect operation its a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek design. Great product I have had the CXC for around 10 days and a joy to use. Straightforward smooth loading and easy CD reading. Sounds magnificent and a definite improvement on my previous Cambridge Audio product. Along with others I find the remote a frustration being designed for an entire system where I have just the CD player but no doubt I will quickly adapt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings new life to CD collection I purchased the CXA61 and CXC together with a pair of B&W 607. This is for a relatively small room otherwise I would have gone for the 606. I am incredibly pleased with what I got. Listening to CD's I've had for 20+ years and hearing things I'd never heard before. It's been a revelation. I'd recommend a CD transport with a worthwhile DAC such as the one one in the CXA61 to anyone looking to get the best out of their CD collection. The Bluetooth is also very good although I am now very tempted to purchase the CXN V2 at some point. Speakers also sound mega but I am of the understanding that in a bigger room something with a bit more power might be required. Please note that both CX products are quite simple in terms of features, such as balance controls and visual display. For example you cannot check how much longer is left in a track etc. Balance control on the amp was not an issue for me (as it sounds so great anyway) but may be for others. The remote control is also rather basic, which is again is not an issue for me. More important than anything else, the sound is astonishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalistic Audio Perfection I bought this to replace my Azur 640C and it's proved to be a really good CD transport. The sound quality is superb and it's a good looking piece of Hi-Fi that compliments the matching CXN V2 I bought at the same time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced Be warned, this player needs pristine CDs which I put down to a cheap transport mechanism and laser. Won't play CDs that play perfectly well in 'cheaper' players. Expected much much more for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great dynamic sound. Better than any CD player anywhere near this price if you have anything with a DAC. Clear dynamic, rhythmic and enough base for most tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent ! Great upgrade ! I bought this after realising i wasnt making the most of my Cambridge Audio CAX60 . Amp is a couple of years old now but my Azur 651c CD player is even older ! So bought this as an upgrade and im so glad i did . It has rejuvenated my CD collection -and i know its a bit of a cliche -but im now hearing things i didnt hear with the 651C . The sound is so much more defined -bass is taughter and instruments are better seperated .
