The compact disc format has been around long enough to include an enormous catalogue of music of all types, and to have become very affordable. Even the most evangelical devotee of music streaming will concede there’s plenty of life in the little silver disc yet. The CXC will let you extract every last drop of musical enjoyment from your CD collection.
There’s absolute purity of purpose to the CXC. It’s built to read the digital audio information on a CD with absolute, unerring accuracy, and then pass it on to a digital-to-analogue convertor (such as the extremely high-quality DACs found in Cambridge’s outstanding new CXA61 and CXA81 integrated amplifiers). Every CXC component is focused only on extracting every iota of information from the disc in its tray.
The disc drive in the CXC was originally developed by Cambridge Audio for its high-end 851C CD player. It’s our renowned ‘S3’ servo design, and it has class-leading levels of jitter rejection and error correction - no multi-purpose drive is able to compete with the the CXC’s levels of precision and stability.
