Premium Single-speed CD Transport Brings New Excitement to Compact Discs
Sure, digital music files are great, but there are a lot of titles and artists that you may only be able to find on CD. And the fact is that the CD format not only sounds superb, but with new technology available, it will easily surpass your expectations.
You have Cambridge Audio to thank for that. A high-quality single-speed transport that is optimized for music CDs, the Cambridge Audio CXC CD transport has been designed for efficient recovery of CD digital data with state-of-the-art error correction. It’s been engineered to delight you by playing audio CDs brilliantly.
Designed specifically for the new CX Series, the CXC delivers stunning CD playback and works in perfect harmony with the Cambridge CXA60 and CXA80 integrated amplifiers as well as with high-end outboard DACs.
Legendary Cambridge Audio S3 Servo
At the heart of the CXC is Cambridge Audio's legendary ‘S3’ servo design. Designed for efficient recovery of CD digital data with state of the art error correction, it’s been engineered to delight you by playing audio CDs brilliantly. Multi-purpose universal Blu-ray players simply can’t compete with the precision, dedicated CD music player that is the Cambridge Audio CXC.
No Digital-to-Analog Conversion Onboard
The CXC requires an outboard DAC or connection to a component with an external DAC, because it lacks its own internal DAC and has digital outputs only (S/PDIF coaxial and TOSLINK optical). This pristine approach takes maximum advantage of the reference quality transport mechanism, servo, and other premium internal components used in the CXC.
The Perfect Partner for CXC-Series Amplifiers
With no digital-to-analog conversion in the CXC, when it is used in conjunction with CX Series amplifiers, the CXC outputs the CD signal in digital form from the player to your Cambridge Audio amplifier, using the high quality Wolfson DAC in a CXA amplifier for the crucial digital to analog conversion stages.
Note: Requires outboard DAC or connection to component with internal DAC
