Part of the brand new CX Range, the CXN gives you access to all the music you could ever want, in one high-performance and easy-to-use network player.
We all love to play our music back from just about anywhere; from home networks, hard drives and computers, to online streaming services such as Spotify and internet radio. However, reproducing this digital music as the original artist intended is a complex challenge. The CXN plays music from all of these different digital and streaming sources, and makes them sound far better, just as the artist intended.
The CXN can play everything from compressed MP3 formats, up to 24- bit/192 kHz studio master quality FLAC and WAV files and its wireless playback capabilities also include internet radio, Spotify, Airplay and even Bluetooth. Whichever input the music comes from, wired or wireless, and whatever its original quality or resolution, the CXN upsamples every input to 24-bit/384kHz for the best quality possible.
With a beautiful 4.3’’ (11cm) colour display, the CXN is as easy to control as it is great to listen to. The CXN can be controlled from the front panel and the included remote control, but the free Cambridge Connect App for Apple and Android devices is by far the best way to effortlessly browse and choose music by artwork, genre, album, artist etc. and by creating playlists.
