The CXR200 is your complete home cinema hub. It brings together all of our hi-fi expertise for a powerful, immersive home cinema experience like no other. We also designed it from the ground up to be the heart of your digital set-up, so it’s got the same award winning Cambridge Audio StreamMagic streaming module found in our CXN network music player. It’s an audiophile’s hi-fi, a movie buff’s AVR, and a music lover’s digital streamer - all in one box.
We created the CXRs with the same premise as any of our other hi-fi products - with amazing sound at the core of their design. Through class AB amplification the CXR200 delivers extremely low noise and distortion levels and is rated at 200 Watts in stereo mode or 120 Watts with all seven channels driven. The power supply is via a low flux audiophile-grade toroidal transformer with a substantially extruded heat sink; the result is that the CXR200 delivers smooth seamless sound with incredible precision. You no longer need two separate systems for your music and movies, the 200 will bring power and energy to anything you put through it.
Complementing the audio prowess, its visual performance is second to none. HDMI connections are 2.0 rated (apart from the MHL inputs which are 1.4), and support 4K and 3D standards, and the CXR200 will upscale all 1080p signals to 4K ultra high definition. With Deep Colour support too, the perfect picture is guaranteed with vivid colours and lifelike detail.
Whatever format your entertainment takes, the CXR200 can connect with it beautifully. The eight HDMI input sockets cater for all your visual feeds and two of them support MHL, one on the front and on the back, making it simple to watch phone content on your big screen. Other front ports of the CXR include USB and MP3 aux-in, so if it’s on a portable device you can still enjoy it through the 200.
Further digital inputs include two co-axial digital sockets and four optical ports. Add a BT100 Bluetooth receiver and it will pair with any compatible device, allowing playback in superb quality thanks to aptX technology. Analogue options are well catered for too: four line level inputs, one recording output, and 7.1 multi-channel direct inputs. There’s even support for Direct Stream Digital (DSD), allowing you to play back Super Audio CDs from your universal player. It’s a long list but basically you can enjoy anything!
The CXR200 can be set up in a number of different ways. It features height channel processing so when using a 5.1 set-up, the unused 6th and 7th speaker channels can be used instead for overhead ‘height’ effects. 7.1 or 7.2 channel set ups are also available thanks to twin subwoofer outputs or you can use the 6th and 7th speaker channels to bi-amp the front left and right channels or send audio into a second zone 2 room.
