Cambridge’s multi-award winning StreamMagic series enables the CXN to play virtually anything, from basic compressed MP3 formats to 24-bit/192kHz studio master quality FLAC and WAV files.
Its wireless playback capabilities include internet radio, Spotify Connect, Airplay and aptX Bluetooth.
Its network playback capabilities include internet radio, Spotify Connect, Airplay and aptX Bluetooth. Whatever input the music comes from - wired or wireless - and no matter its original resolution, the powerful digital engine inside the CXN upsamples your favourite songs to 24-bit/384kHz. They’re then passed via twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs in Dual Differential configuration; the result is tonal clarity, detail and an involvement with your music that will astound you.
Intuitive to use, the CXN features an exquisite 4.3” (11 cm) colour display, and can also be controlled via the free Cambridge Connect App for Apple and Android devices. Browse your music by album, artist, playlist and more; it’s beautiful, simple, and an easy way to see at a glance what you’re listening to.
The CXN is our fastest, slickest network player yet, not least because we use the horsepower available in the new Cambridge Connect app rather than the hardware itself, to do all the hard work. The app, which offers a new menu system plus a more graphical and intuitive interface, locates uPnP servers on your network, makes sense of the folder structure and lists content metadata, without skipping a beat.
