Cambridge Audio's stunning new CXA60 delivers much of the CXA80. At the heart of it is the same high performance class A/B amplifier in a 60 Watt per channel specification. This is supplied by a single-winding low-flux toroidal transformer.
Other than the additional USB Audio and analogue XLR inputs found in the CXA80, all other inputs and digital to analogue conversion is identical to the CXA80.
'DacMagic' digital inputs and digital to analogue conversion.
To journey deeper into the music you love, the CXA80 has been designed from scratch with high performance digital to analogue conversion. This is thanks to a high specification 24-bit 192kHz WM8740 DAC chip from Wolfson that is at the core of our award-winning DacMagic range. Two optical inputs and one co-axial digital input are provided as well as an asynchronous USB Audio input for incredibly low jitter, so you can play your music directly from your PC or Mac. Add an optional BT100 Bluetooth dongle to your CXA80, for instant aptX quality streaming direct from your smartphone or tablet.
