”Simply the best music streamer around at this price.” ‘What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 award-winner.

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.
