Cambridge Audio CXA 60 Integrated Amplifier
EnergeticDesigning the CXA60 was a challenge that was accepted with open arms by our engineers. We wanted an amp that sounded more musical and energetic than anything we’ve made before. They beavered away for months and after some particularly late nights they eventually nailed it. To achieve this they used some unique engineering techniques, some very premium components, and some great ears for detail.
Your Music at its BestWe’ve used an audiophile-grade toroidal transformer which helps minimise magnetic flux levels. This basically keeps distortion and other noise levels low so that your music is played back with complete purity. We also centrally mount the transformer to reduce interference with other components in the circuit board such as the volume pot; this is in a further effort to keep your music sounding amazing. As for the volume pot itself, we’ve used an ALPs film type volume pot which delivers accurate volume control and superb low level channel balance so the volume is always perfectly controlled across both left and right channels at whatever volume you’re enjoying.
CAREFUL POSITIONING- We mount the premium toroidal transformer centrally, to reduce flux or magnetic disturbance from the volume pot. TOROIDAL TRANSFORMER- We use a Class AB amplifier design, a centrally mounted audiophile grade oversize toroidal transformer, and substantial extruded heatsinks. This allows the CXA60 to deliver 2 x 60 Watts RMS into 8 Ohms. Into 4 Ohms, this increases to 2 x 90W. SUPERB SEPARATION- The internal PCB layout is optimised for minimal left/right 'crosstalk' and to maximise the quality of stereo separation. By entirely separating the left and right channel heat sinks, and using symmetrical and separated circuit paths for the two channels, we ensure that the CXA60 and CXA80 deliver stunning stereo separation and minimum cross- channel interference. VOLUME POT- An ALPs film type volume pot delivers accurate volume control and superb low level channel balance.
