”Still the best music streamer around at this price”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Powerful processor

The V2 version of the CXN features a faster processor for a richer Internet radio experience and a greater level of playback control. Introducing mpeg-DASH and HLS compatibility, the CXN V2 makes the most of Internet radio. BBC radio stations now sound better than ever when available at 320 kbps.

A sound emphasis
As ever, the CXN V2 puts sound quality first. Using twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), each channel has its own DAC to process its own information. This gives a more precise and accurate sound quality with improved stereo imaging. When combined with the 2-Pole Dual Differential Bessel filter, the DACs help give the CXN V2 outstanding levels of clarity and transparency of sound.

AFT2 Up-Sampling for the ultimate detail and least jitter
The Cambridge CXN V2 improves sound quality still further with an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) up-sampling 'stretches' the music to give the highest resolution possible. Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll hear every detail, including every deep breath, squeaky chair and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real.

Stream all your stored music - including Hi Res files
With UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) compatibility it's easy to connect the Cambridge CXN V2 to your home network and stream from your NAS drive, hard drive, PC or laptop. The CXN V2 accepts a wide range of files, including many Hi Res formats. ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE AAC, AAC+ and OGG Vorbis are all supported, making this a highly flexible streamer.

Connect to Internet radio and Spotify Connect
In addition to supporting over 20,000, easy to access Internet radio stations, the CXN V2 is compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world’s most popular streaming service and the CXN V2 has Spotify Connect built-in (requires Spotify Premium account). If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. The CXN V2 also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer Radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.

AirPlay 2 and optional Bluetooth
In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi and USB, the CXN V2 is also compatible with Apple's AirPlay 2 streaming. Use it with your iPhone, iPad PC or Mac and wireless stream your iTunes library or other compatible music services. Connect the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet or other device with Bluetooth built-in.

Built-in digital pre-amp - just add active speakers
If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in digital pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analogue outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance via the CXN V2.

Pro connections
When it comes to connecting up, the CXN V2 is in the pro league. The highlight is the fitment of XLR balanced sockets. When used with a compatible amplifier, such as the matching Cambridge CXA81, these connections give the ultimate analogue link possible, with greatly improved resistance to interference.

Quad USB interface
Added to this there are no fewer than four USB interfaces. The front-mounted socket is ideal for connecting devices such as a USB media stick. At the back, two interfaces take care of a more permanently connected media device plus the optional Bluetooth dongle port. A Type-B asynchronous USB input gives direct connection to your PC or Mac. This makes the ideal connection for hooking up your computer as it effectively 'controls' the PC's output for the best sound quality possible – with greatly reduced jitter.

Digital in and out
Optical and coaxial digital sockets are provided for both inputs and outputs. This lets you connect other digital components and take advantage of the quality DAC built into the CXN V2. It also means you can plug the CXN V2 into your AV receiver or digital stereo amp. Analogue phono outputs are also standard.

New Stream Magic app*
For the best streaming experience with your CXN V2, simply download the free Stream Magic app on your Android or Apple iOS device. Developed exclusively by Cambridge Audio, this bespoke app offers a customisable hub for fast access to the streaming features you use the most.

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 CXN V2 is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXN V2 a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CX digital amplifiers, CD transport 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.

For a comprehensively equipped network streamer that puts sound first, the Cambridge CXN V2 is still the one to beat.

*Please note that the Stream Magic app is not compatible with the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal! The combination of the CXNV2 with the CXA61 amp is mind blowing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CXN v2 is the best streamer in its class I have my CXN v2 partnered with my Edge W Power Amp and the combination is extremely impressive. The CXN v2 offers extreme flexibility for streaming (Bluetooth, AirPlay, ChromeCast) and the Edge W provides control in a class of its own. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Set up relatively easy and wow love the sound and ease of use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of kit This was a replacement for an entry level streamer that was not up to the quality of the rest of my system. This one certainly is! Set up was an absolute doddle, features are all that you could want and it's easy to use. It's tempting to think that a streamer is basically just an interface between the internet and the amp and that it doesn't influence sound quality. This certainly proves that there is much more to it than that. My research before I bought it has paid off and I would recommend this without any hesitation. It's not cheap; that's the only reason for giving it four stars for "value".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything I wanted and sounds great, buy it! I thought long and hard about buying a streamer for a long time. The cost was significant to me but I finally took the plunge and I have not looked back. I love it. I love the convenience, I love the album art, I love the sound but most of all I love the fact I listen to music much more than I have for such a long time. Streaming makes it so easy to listen to old favourites and discover new music. It took me a little while to get to grips with the Stream Magic software but I'm off and running now and very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible sound and streaming I purchased both the Cambridge Audio CXA 62 Amp and CXN V2 music steamer and I’ve been blown away by the ease of streaming great sounding music.
