THE HEART OF YOUR DIGITAL MUSIC SYSTEM

POWER PRECISION AND DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY

Cambridge Audio have an almost 50-year history of manufacturing quality audio products. There are a lot of audio companies with extensive histories behind them, but the fact that Cambridge Audio has built and maintained such a positive reputation goes to show that their successes are not flukes.For over 50 years Cambridge Audio has been refining their technologies in their quest to truly reproduce "The British Sound".They define "The British Sound" as audio in its purest form.....not "mucking about" with the sound at all.

Cambridge’s latest range of hi-fi equipment is the CX series, comprising a couple of stereo amplifiers, multi-channel amplifiers, and a handful of source units. The ideal motivating the production of the CX series is to bring engineering principles normally applied to high-end hi-fi gear to gear at an affordable price level. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, or some such idiom, and our experience of the CX series is that it delivers on its ideals.

From its floating chassis design and clean uncluttered fascia the Cambridge Audio CXA60 means business in delivering a high end quality not only in build but in sound performance.The CXA60 is also ready for the modern digital world with an onboard 24 Bit/192Khz DAC which supports Hi-Res playback across its 2 optical and single coaxial inputs.It also features Pre-Out terminals to allow for expansion of the system to include a higher output power amplifier.The Sub Out means a subwoofer can be attached to extend the low end heft of its performance.

Just a single listen will tell you how entertaining this Cambridge Audio CXA60 amplifier is. Fluid, snappy and packed with enthusiasm, it puts musical enjoyment high on its list of priorities.The Cambridge is disciplined enough to exercise plenty of control when it comes to dynamics and rhythms.The amplifier skillfully handles complex arrangements and is capable of delivering subtle, accurate detail.
