Prime Tower Overview

Every aspect of the Prime Tower speakers was designed for sonic excellence. From the premium grade drivers and sophisticated SoundMatch crossover to the extra-thick baffle, internal bracing, and FEA optimized tweeter diffuser, the Prime Tower speaker’s design and engineering credentials place it among the best $1,000 tower speakers available.

Prime Driver & Tweeter Design
Thoughtfully designed for acoustic excellence, the 4.5-inch midrange driver is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure a smooth, precise, and clear midrange free from coloration. The cone material is extremely light and rigid and maintains a flat frequency response with excellent handling across the foundational mid-range frequencies.

The Prime Tower's Dual 6.5-inch woofers deliver effortlessly deep and articulate bass to set the mood and punctuate the low-end impact of instruments, basslines, and movie sound effects. Each woofer has a separate internal compartment in the cabinet with its own custom port tuning frequency. The result is the deep, powerful, and accurate bass you hear and more importantly, feel.

The Prime Tower speaker’s 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter is light, efficient, and rigid, and plays crystal clear at high volumes. The clarity offers a sense of utter transparency while offering an ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs so female vocals and dialogue always sound crisp and smooth.

Innovative SoundMatch Crossover Design
Since premium drivers require an equally capable crossover, no expense was spared with the innovative SVS SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover. Its tapered array is designed so each woofer has its own discrete crossover to minimize the potential for beaming. This creates an expansive, yet focused and precise soundstage, with accurate frequency response at all listening positions in the room. The precise tuning of the SoundMatch Crossover also ensures pinpoint accuracy from sparkling highs down to palpable lows, while maintaining pristine

Performance Driven Cabinet Design and Geometry
Tapered edges on the Prime Tower speaker’s front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for clear and precise soundstaging. The cabinet’s presence is substantial but it does not take over a room visually and offers a modern industrial feel with acoustic enhancements like shorting rings and a tweeter diffuser. All of these advancements are packed into a sleek but commanding floor-standing speaker cabinet available in stunning piano gloss black or premium black ash finish.

CXA81 Integrated Stereo Amplifier Overview

Half a decade after the CX range redefined performance at its price point, it’s time to reimagine, reengineer and reinvigorate. The all-new CXA61 and CXA81 integrated amplifiers build on the foundations laid (and the Awards won) by CXA60 and CXA80, but with a fresh and progressive perspective.

The CXA81 is poised, effortless, and sophisticated. Its 80 watts per channel give it complete authority over music, and it wrings every emotional and musical nuance from your whole collection.

"Class leaders are constantly being replaced in hi-fi, but rarely is it done so soundly as by Cambridge Audio’s CXA81 integrated amp" - What Hi-Fi?

Making the Best Better
How do you take an admired and successfully integrated amplifier, one that’s won respect and plaudits around the world, and make it even better? Well, if you’re a Cambridge Audio engineer, you examine every aspect of the performance - and then you do everything you can to make it ‘more’. More refined, more precise, more engrossing… more musical. The CXA81: it’s everything you loved about the CXA80, but more so.

Uncompromised and Uncompromising
All the research, all the development, all the time and effort that’s been expended on the CXA81 has been for one reason alone: to make this the most accomplished and absorbing integrated amplifier ever offered at the price. Every component selected, and every engineering decision taken is based entirely on the desire to progress. The CXA81 has been designed and specified without compromise, in order to deliver the complete musical picture.

CXN v2 Network Audio Streamer Overview

Powerful processor
The V2 version of the CXN features a faster processor for a richer Internet radio experience and a greater level of playback control. Introducing MPEG-DASH and HLS compatibility, the CXN V2 makes the most of Internet radio. BBC radio stations now sound better than ever when available at 320 kbps.

A sound emphasis
As ever, the CXN (V2) puts sound quality first. Using twin Wolfson WM8740 DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors), each channel has its own DAC to process its own information. This gives a more precise and accurate sound quality with improved stereo imaging. When combined with the 2-Pole Dual Differential Bessel filter, the DACs help give the CXN (V2) outstanding levels of clarity and transparency of sound.

AFT2 Up-Sampling for the ultimate detail and least jitter
The Cambridge CXN (V2) improves sound quality still further with an Anagram Technologies AFT2 24 bit/384 kHz up-sampling circuit. ATF (Adaptive Time Filtering) up-sampling 'stretches' the music to give the highest resolution possible. Up-sampling sound gives a smoother, more relaxed sound quality with added detail. You'll hear every detail, including every deep breath, squeaky chair, and flutter of sheet music; in short, it's like being there for real.

Stream all your stored music - including Hi-Res files
With UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) compatibility it's easy to connect the Cambridge CXN (V2) to your home network and stream from your NAS drive, hard drive, PC, or laptop. The CXN (V2) accepts a wide range of files, including many Hi-Res formats. ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, WMA, MP3, AAC, HE-AAC, AAC+, and OGG Vorbis are all supported, making this a highly flexible streamer.

Connect to Internet radio and Spotify Connect
In addition to supporting over 20,000, easy to access Internet radio stations, the CXN (V2) is compatible with the most popular music streaming services. Spotify is the world’s most popular streaming service and the CXN (V2) has Spotify Connect built-in (requires Spotify Premium account). If you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you can control the Cambridge with the powerful Spotify Connect app on your phone or tablet. The CXN (V2) also supports Napster, BBC iPlayer Radio, Aupeo! Pandora and Rhapsody.

AirPlay 2 and optional Bluetooth
In addition to comprehensive streaming capabilities over LAN, Wi-Fi, and USB, the CXN (V2) is also compatible with Apple's AirPlay 2 streaming. Use it with your iPhone, iPad PC, or Mac and wireless stream your iTunes library or other compatible music services. Connect the optional BT100 dongle and you'll be able to stream your music from any smartphone, tablet, or another device with Bluetooth built-in.

Built-in digital pre-amp - just add active speakers
If you're seeking quality hi-fi from a minimal system then the built-in digital pre-amp will appeal. Simply add active speakers via the digital or analog outputs and you'll be able to control the volume and balance via the CXN (V2).

Pro connections
When it comes to connecting up, the CXN (V2) is in the pro league. The highlight is the fitment of XLR balanced sockets. When used with a compatible amplifier, such as the matching Cambridge CXA81, these connections give the ultimate analog link possible, with greatly improved resistance to interference.

Quad USB interface
Added to this there are no fewer than four USB interfaces. The front-mounted socket is ideal for connecting devices such as a USB media stick. At the back, two interfaces take care of a more permanently connected media device plus the optional Bluetooth dongle port. A Type-B asynchronous USB input gives a direct connection to your PC or Mac. This makes the ideal connection for hooking up your computer as it effectively 'controls' the PC's output for the best sound quality possible – with greatly reduced jitter.

Digital in and out
Optical and coaxial digital sockets are provided for both inputs and outputs. This lets you connect other digital components and take advantage of the quality DAC built into the CXN (V2). It also means you can plug the CXN (V2) into your AV receiver or digital stereo amp. Analog phono outputs are also standard.

New Stream Magic app*
For the best streaming experience with your CXN (V2), simply download the free Stream Magic app on your Android or Apple iOS device. Developed exclusively by Cambridge Audio, this bespoke app offers a customizable hub for fast access to the streaming features you use the most.

Vibration resistant casing
With rigid, metal construction and low-resonance design, the casing helps shield the player from both mechanical and electrical interference, helping to improve clarity and reduce background noise. Isolating feet help absorb vibration for a further reduction in distortion.

Sleek new finish
The CXN (V2) is part of the refreshed CX-Series 2. The distinctive tear-drop profile gives the CXN (V2) a contemporary look and makes it the ideal partner for the CX digital amplifiers, CD transport, and also a great match for the Cambridge Audio AX range. The Lunar Grey front panel contrasts with the blacktop and sides and blends well with both black and silver separates.

For a comprehensively equipped network streamer that puts sound first, the Cambridge CXN V2 is still the one to beat.

The CXA81 combines unparalleled accuracy with vivid musicality, without sacrificing convenience.

Absolute Flexibility
The CXA81 covers all connectivity bases, giving you complete freedom of choice. As well as digital optical and digital coaxial inputs, it features unbalanced stereo RCA inputs alongside balanced XLR sockets - and wireless connectivity via Bluetooth’s cutting-edge aptX HD standard is on board too. So there’s no need to compromise on performance in the name of convenience.

Power and Control
Thanks to numerous improvements and upgrades - and thanks to an over-specified toroidal transformer - the CXA81 delivers a prodigious 80 watts of power per channel. This means the CXA81 has complete authority over even the most demanding speakers, it means big dynamic shifts in music are handled with total control, and it means the whole musical picture is available no matter if you’re playing at discreet background levels or at party-time volumes.

Unmatched Sonic Integrity
At the heart of the CXA81 beats a completely reimagined and redesigned power amplifier stage with optimized capacitor values. The resulting sound is pristine but not clinical, with unrivaled musical coherence no matter the source.

Partner for Life
Thanks to a relentless dedication to progressive engineering, The CXA81 is a complete solution. Its combination of versatility, power, and audio excellence means it can form the center of your musical experience for years to come.
