Cambridge Audio CXC CD Transport
Spin Your Discs with PerfectionAt the heart of the CXC is our legendary ‘S3’ servo design. Designed for efficient recovery of CD digital data with state of the art error correction it’s been engineered to play audio CDs brilliantly. Multi-purpose drives simply can’t compete. The design was actually developed for our flagship 851C CD player, giving minimal disc jitter and excellent error correction for the most precise and accurate playback of CDs.
Digital OutputsWith no digital to analogue conversion in the CXC, when used in conjunction with the CX Series amplifiers it outputs the CD signal in digital form, relying on the high quality Wolfson DAC in the CXA amplifier for the crucial digital to analogue conversion stages. The result is layers of detail and clarity from your disc collection that you’ve never heard before.

My original CD player was a NAD 3-series BEE, producing sound with which I was extremely pleased for years, until it suddenly started skipping mercilessly. After an unsuccessful repair, it had to be discarded and was replaced by an Onkyo SACD player that, on paper, sounded as good or better than the late NAD. What a disappointment that was. The sound produced was sadly mediocre and inferior even to the outgoing NAD, when compared back to back. Finally, after careful research, I had decided to trade in my Onkyo for the Cambridge CXC. I'm happy to say, that in combination with Cambridge DacMagic Plus it sounds amazingly good. Better, in fact, than the late venerable NAD, leaving the Onkyo simply in the dust. Naturally, playing it through a good amp and a quality pair of speakers also helps a lot, too.
