MAKE YOUR MUSIC SOUND AMAZING, WHEREVER IT COMES FROM
Part of the brand new CX Range, the CXN
gives you access to all the music you
could ever want, in one high-performance
and easy-to-use network player.
We all love to play our 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.
With a beautiful 4.3’’ (11cm) colour
display, the CXN is as easy to control as
it is great to listen to. The CXN can be
controlled from the front panel and the
included remote control, but the free
Cambridge Connect App for Apple and
Android devices is by far the best way to
effortlessly browse and choose music by
artwork, genre, album, artist etc. and by
creating playlists.
The CXN can play everything from
compressed MP3 formats, up to 24bit/192 kHz studio master quality FLAC
and WAV files and its wireless playback
capabilities also include internet radio,
Spotify, Airplay and even Bluetooth.
Whichever input the music comes from,
wired or wireless, and whatever its
original quality or resolution, the CXN
upsamples every input to 24-bit/384kHz
for the best quality possible.

Superior connectivity
The CXN has a host of wired and wireless
connections so that wherever your music
comes from, you can play it back in
stunning quality through the CXN:
• Wireless:
Wi-Fi, UPnP, internet radio, Spotify,
Airplay and Bluetooth.
• Wired:
Ethernet, UPnP, internet radio, 2 x USB
HDD inputs, asynchronous USB Audio,
2 x digital inputs including S/PDIF
coaxial, TOSLINK optical.
This means you can connect a world of
digital source components from settop boxes to smartphones, tablets and
computers, and improve their sound with
the CXN. Whatever you connect, the
results are astonishing!
• High quality outputs:
The CXN upsamples every input to
24-bit/384kHz output for the best
quality possible. The CXN features both
RCA and balanced XLR audio outputs,
as found in many modern high-end hi-fi
separates (such as our 651W and 851W
power amplifiers).
Network music
It’s incredibly easy to turn a NAS drive
or computer on a home network into a
UPnP music source. Then, over Wi-Fi or
Ethernet the CXN can play any music that
it sees on the network, including FLAC,
Apple Lossless, WAV and many more
different types of music format.
There are comprehensive guides at
support.cambridgeaudio.com covering
the latest operating systems for PCs,
Macs and for NAS drives, which explain
the simple steps to achieve this.
Digital Pre, with Analogue Power!
Why not connect the CXN directly to the
Cambridge Audio 651W or 851W power
amplifier, to create a truly astonishing
digital music system!
High performance USB
The CXN features a high quality
asynchronous USB Audio input for
playback up to 24-bit/192kHz high
resolution files from a connected
computer or laptop. An asynchronous
USB Audio input means that the CXN
acts as a high quality external soundcard,
allowing bit-perfect transfer from the
connected computer to the CXN, ensuring
all data is delivered in perfect timing for
the highest possible sound quality.
Unlike many digital pre-amplifiers, the
CXN’s digital pre-amplifier is the highest
possible quality thanks to the powerful 32bit SHARC DSP (Digital Signal Processor),
which we also use to drive our ATF audio
upsampling system. Most digital
preamplifiers use ‘bit reduction’ to adjust
the level of the volume output, however
this results in much lower sound quality
because digital information is being cut
out of the original audio signal. Instead,
the CXN’s digital pre-amplifier uses the
Blackfin DSP to control the level of the
volume output, meaning that the entire
digital signal remains fully intact for the
best possible sound.
All the power of Spotify, built in
Spotify is the world’s most popular
streaming service. Spotify Connect is
integrated with the CXN. If you subscribe
to Spotify Premium, you can control the
CXN with the powerful Spotify Connect
app on your phone or tablet. And because
Spotify is built-in, you can still take calls or
use other apps – the music never stops.
Cambridge Connect Apps
User experience is just as important as
sound quality with a product as versatile
as the CXN. With a beautiful 4.3’’ (11cm)
colour display and intuitive control Apps,
the CXN is as easy to control as it is great
to listen to. While there’s control from
the front panel and the included remote,
the free Cambridge Connect App for iOS
and Android devices brings the whole
experience to life. Whether it’s flicking
through album artwork, building playlists
or setting presets, the app allows intuitive
browsing and navigation of all the CXN’s
connected sources with ease.
Airplay and Bluetooth:
enhance your Apps
Bring the CXN’s stunning audio quality
to all your apps and streaming services
via your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Connect wirelessly to the CXN and listen
to popular apps and services such as
YouTube, played back in stunning quality
through the CXN’s Bluetooth or Airplay
connections. Anything you play on your
tablet or smartphone will sound far
superior when played back wirelessly
through the CXN.
