Everybody loves to play music back from just about anywhere; from home networks, hard drives and computers, to online streaming services such as Spotify and internet radio. However, reproducing this digital music as the original artist intended is a complex challenge. The CXN plays music from all of these different digital and streaming sources, and makes them sound far better, just as the artist intended.
We designed the CXN with many ways to connect – Wi-Fi, USB ports, S/PDIF co-axial and optical inputs, plus Bluetooth if you add the optional BT100 receiver. Then we added compatibility with as many different file formats as we could. The result is that the CXN can source music from Spotify Connect, your iOS device via Airplay, Internet Radio and your personal NAS drive or UPnP server.
Full Color Screen
Eye-catching and beautiful, the full colour display has a resolution that makes interacting with the CXN a joy. Use your tablet or smart phone via the free Cambridge Connect App and everything becomes controllable and visible: the artwork of the album, the playing time of the track, the quality of the signal and the repeat options.
The elegant design, the stunning screen, the multiple ways to access your music, all of this would count for nothing if the CXN didn’t deliver musically. So there’s beauty under the skin. Digital inputs are upsampled to 24-bit/384 kHz and passed through two Wolfson WM8740 24-bit DACs to extract extraordinary detail. These can improve your other digital sources too, thanks to digital inputs. The result will change your mind about what a network player can reveal in your music.
