Description

Ultimate digital convenience and quality. Built on our multi award-winning StreamMagic streaming platform, it gives you seamless access to your complete digital library, Spotify Connect and internet radio and then plays it all back exactly as it was originally made to be heard thanks to our own upsampling technology.

Almost 50 years of hi-fi expertise goes into every single one of our products to ensure they sound spot on - the CXN is no different hence why it’s the best sounding streamer around. Your music will be passed through our unique ATF2 upsampling technology and then through dual Wolfson WM8740 DACs (very premium digital to analogue converters). Essentially all signals are upscaled to a hi-res 24bit/384kHz format using polynomial curve fitting interpolation. Every song has even more acute detail and warm depth, so you’ll be able to enjoy musical nuances that you’ve never heard before in songs that you’ve heard a thousand times. Our engineers also spent hours tuning the CXN the old school way, by ear, which we believe is the only way to achieve a sound quality that genuinely moves you.

We wanted to design a product that allows you to play any song in the world from any device. It’s a long list, but it basically means the CXN will play anything you want and thanks to its huge processing power and slick functionality from our award winning StreamMagic platform, it doesn’t make a fuss of it or skip a single beat, it just plays your music instantly. We’ve included; Spotify Connect, Airplay, Internet Radio, NAS Drive/ UPnP compatibility, asynchronous USB, Coax and TOSLINK digital inputs, DSD64 support and AptX Bluetooth (with added BT100 receiver).

There’s a lovely big colour screen on the front so you can always see the album artwork and commands that you’re sending to the unit. To make control as seamless as possible, we’ve built our own app – Cambridge Connect. Whether it’s flicking through albums, building playlists or setting presets, the app allows simple and intuitive browsing of all the connected sources from the comfort of your chair. We’ve completely removed any obstructions or complicated menus between you and your favourite music, leaving the CXN simply as a catalyst to an incredible listening experience.

Audio formats

An audio format is a medium for storing sound and music. The term is applied to both the physical recording media and the recording formats of the audio content – in computer science it is often limited to the audio file format, but its wider use usually refers to the physical method used to store the data.
Music is recorded and distributed using a variety of audio formats, some of which store additional information.

WAV

WAV

WAV (or WAVE), short for Waveform audio format, is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is a variant of the RIFF bitstream format method for storing data in “chunks”, and thus also close to the IFF and the AIFF format used on Amiga and Macintosh computers, respectively. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The default bitstream encoding is the Microsoft Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) format.

FLAC

FLAC

FLAC (pron.: /ˈflæk/; Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a codec (compressor-decompressor or coder-decoder) which allows digital audio to be losslessly compressed such that file size is reduced without any information being lost. Digital audio compressed by FLAC's algorithm can typically be reduced to 50–60% of its original size, and decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data.

Digital-to-analog converter

i

Digital-to-analog converter

In electronics, a digital-to-analog converter (DAC or D-to-A) is a device that converts a digital (usually binary) code to an analog signal (current, voltage, or electric charge). An analog-to-digital converter (ADC) performs the reverse operation. Signals are easily stored and transmitted in digital form, but a DAC is needed for the signal to be recognized by human senses or other non-digital systems.

Audio bit depth
i

Audio bit depth

In digital audio, bit depth describes the number of bits of information recorded for each sample. Bit depth directly corresponds to the resolution of each sample in a set of digital audio data. Common examples of bit depth include CD quality audio, which is recorded at 16 bits, and DVD-Audio, which can support up to 24-bit audio.
