"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 Excellent upgrade to my system When I was last in the shop pondering a new CD player as I knew my existing one was entering it's later stages, I was recommended to try this with my Marantz amp rather than spend an equivalent amount of money on the Marantz CD player. That recommendation is now proving itself as the sound quality is superb and a considerable step up to what I was used to. The machine is also sturdier than older Cambridge machines which I felt did them no favours. The moral of the tale? Listen to the staff's advice and recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek good looks, excellent sound This was purchased with the CXA61 after a sound demonstration in-store. My previous, high quality, 25 year old hi-fi had been sold as it was not compatible with UK power supply. I was sad to leave it behind but am now delighted with this new purchase. It represents excellent value and delivers an excellent sound. It is wonderful hearing my music again after all these months!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello Digital World I finally decided to take the plunge into the digital world. and I'm so glad that I did. I now have a Cambridge CXN V2 streamer, and a CXC CD Transport player in my system. What a difference, It's like listening to music with new ears! The clarity and detail that the CXC brings out from my CD's is amazing. all connected to new active speakers. The CXN V2 streamer is very versatile, with an array of connections on the rear. All in all I'm very pleased, great sound, looks and affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faultless service. Ordered 4pm got it next day. Fully informed all the way. And cheaper than I could get it elsewhere. The best company I’ve had dealings with in years. Great CD player, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Amp I purchased this amplifier after I went in to the Southampton store for a test on a CXN, I was so impressed with the amplifier of the knowledge of the shop staff (who I believe was the manager) at the Southampton store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A terrific item of equipment. Sound is fabulous I bought the CA CXC CD Transport Player about 2 weeks ago to use with my CXA Amplifier and the quality of the sound and the frequency response is incredible. I have upgraded from an old CD player and I'm now hearing music and effects that I have never heard before. Never thought there would be so much of a difference. It is a very well made piece of equipment. Please note I bought this via telesales but there is not that option below. So had to select online.
