Ultimate digital convenience and quality. CXN (V2) further refines the seamless digital music experience that made the original a What Hi-Fi? award winner, three years running. A faster processor opens up new possibilities, giving you a richer internet radio experience, a greater level of playback control and Chromecast built-in.
Convenience. Not Compromise
Everyone loves the convenience of digital audio. Nobody enjoys the compromises digital audio playback sometimes involves. That’s why the CXN (V2) is designed to provide the effortless accessibility of digital audio, but with the uncompromised sonic excellence of Cambridge Audio’s 50-plus years of hi-fi experience. Ease of use meets quality of performance.
The World's Music, Any Way You Want It
Digital audio is available from many sources - and the CXN (V2) is able to deliver from those you love most. Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Qobuz and Tidal offer a world’s-worth of content, there’s Chromecast built-in to make things even easier, and the CXN (V2) is Roon Ready enriching the experience of browsing your NAS and UPnP audio too. Add digital optical and coaxial inputs, asynchronous USB socket, aptX Bluetooth (via adapter) and internet radio, and the CXN (V2) brings the planet’s music into your home.
The Whole Story
Getting hold of the music you want is one thing. Being moved by the fidelity of its reproduction is quite another. That’s why the CXN (V2) is packing dual Wolfson WM8740 digital-to-analogue convertors - by upscaling any digital audio information to an information-packed 24bit/384kHz using Cambridge Audio’s unique ATF2 technology, music is delivered with the sort of warmth, depth, nuance and unity not automatically associated with digital audio.
Power In Your Hands
The CXN (V2) features prodigious processing power, quite unlike that of any nominal rival. Cambridge Audio’s renowned Stream Magic platform ensures a slick, seamless and stable listening experience from any source, and its out-of-the-box MPEG-DASH and HLS compatibility means live streams are equally consistent and of equally high quality.
Control. Pure and Simple
Interacting with CXN (V2) couldn’t be simpler or more satisfying. The bespoke Cambridge Audio StreamMagic app allows straightforward, stable and intuitive control of all connected sources - curate playlists, set presets or browse albums conveniently and in comfort. Then allow the big, colourful and crisp fascia display to show your commands or the album artwork of the music you’re enjoying.
