The CXN and CXN(V2) won the What Hi-Fi? Streamer award 4 years in a row because it offers an extremely detailed and emotionally rich musical performance. The CXN(V2) is the evolution that builds on Cambridge Audio’s almost 50 years of experience to refine and enhance the award-winning previous CXN. It combines two audiophile-grade Wolfson WM8740 DACs with a wide range of wireless connectivity including built-in Chromecast compatibility, which makes it a versatile and potent addition to any system.

This streamer uses a new-generation processor to accelerate boot and bring music to the listener faster. The double Wolfson DACs work with a precise internal clock to avoid jitter, ensuring a clean and precise sound reproduction. Input signal is also upsampled automatically to 24bit/384kHz to enhance musicality and detail.

The CXN(V2) can be controlled via the Cambridge Audio app for smartphones or playback can be initiated with Spotify connect, Apple Airplay or StreamMagic app for Qobuz. Through the Cambridge Connect app, it is possible to browse a local network library, search a built-in streaming service like Tidal or simply access internet radio. On the wired side, the USB input allows for playback of high-resolution files up to 24-bit/192kHz, upsampled to 384kHz. This streamer is compatible with a wide array of formats to complement its versatility, including ALAC, WAV,FLAC, AIFF, DSD64, MP3, AAC and WMA.
