Cambridge Audio CXA61 Integrated Amplifier with DAC
CX SERIES 2. THE SOUND OF PROGRESS.
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.
LET YOUR MUSIC MOVE YOU
The Cambridge Audio CXA61 is designed to bring you closer to the music you love. It’s designed to put you right at the heart of your favourite recordings, telling you the story of every note in the most natural, most effortless, most detailed way imaginable. Analogue or digital, lo-fi or hi-res, the CXA61 lets the music take you where you want to go.
The CXA61 has been engineered, refined and finessed with only one objective in mind: to deliver the most thrillingly musical sound you’ve ever experienced. Every choice of component, and every engineering decision, has been made in order to minimise colouration of the sound and maximise its accuracy. Cambridge Audio has drawn on every one of its 50 years of experience to make the CXA61 its most accomplished integrated amplifier yet.
ALL OF THE MUSIC
Because it’s designed to deliver the maximum musical experience no matter where the music is coming from, the CXA61 has an entirely reengineered digital board featuring the industry-standard ESS Sabre ES9010 K2M digital-to-analogue convertor. The CXA61 can bring digital audio files up to state-of-the-art 32bit/384kHz and DSD256 resolutions vividly to life, combining convenience with performance in a way unheard-of until now.
POWER WITHOUT CORRUPTION
An oversized toroidal transformer gives the CXA61 a muscular 60 watts of power for each channel. Painstaking engineering gives it super-low levels of distortion and supreme electrical efficiency. The result is an amplifier with limitless reserves of power, ready to maximise the dynamic potential of any loudspeakers and able to play at any volume level without stress or distortion.
Pair any Bluetooth device to the CXA61 to stream up to aptX HD-quality audio. Because there’s no need to compromise your musical experience when you decide to cut the cord.
The CXA61 features a reimagined power amp stage with optimised capacitors values, and a revised volume pot designed to offer minimised crosstalk. The result is a clean, short and pure signal path that allows your music unmatched coherence – at any volume.
The amplifier is the heart and the engine of any system – and the CXA61 is able to power your favourite speakers and form the centre of your musical experience for years to come.
