The heart of your music system.
Designing the CX Series amplifiers was a labour of love; the product of a team dedicated to extracting every drop of pleasure and detail from all genres of music. These amplifiers will help you discover a new dimension of sound. The CXA60 must be heard to be believed. Rated at 60 Watts per channel, its class A/B amplifier design will reveal spectacular detail in your music. A low-flux toroidal transformer also enhances performance and together these design details deliver incredible control over your speakers.
And because we’ve designed it with digital in mind, it features two optical inputs and a coaxial digital input so you connect up all of your digital sources. Add an optional BT100 Bluetooth dongle and you’ve got aptX streaming direct from your smartphone or tablet, allowing access to music from Spotify, Youtube, and a host of others. To journey deeper into the music you love, the CXA60 has been designed from the ground up with built-in digital to analogue conversion capabilities.
Using a high-specification 24-bit 192kHz WM8740 DAC chip from Wolfson, the CXA60 offers a powerful upgrade for all your digital sources. Analogue sources are equally well catered for with four RCA inputs and a front 3.5mm Aux jack. In use, the CXA60 is a delight. The floating effect of the chassis, the brushed finish, the easy-to-read display, they’re all designed to create a hi-fi amplifier that’s as beautiful on the outside as it’s well engineered on the inside. Whatever your source, the CXA60 will reveal new depths and layers of sound, letting you re-discover your favourite music.
Both our CXA60 and CXA80 amplifiers employ the same Wolfson WM8740 DAC, and there’s a very good reason for that: it sounds superb! There are more recent Wolfson DACs in circulation, however none sound quite as great as the WM8740 in our view. Which is why, time and again, we choose them.
