Product Info

- pristine in-box display unit

Our favorite part about Cambridge Audio (CA) is that you know their equipment are well-engineered, reliable, and designed by people who really care about quality reproduction of music. With any of their eauipment, this exuberance. comes through. My favorite part is that they do this so well while keeping pricing so affordable! This fits in so well with LP GEAR's business philosophy of delivering exceptional products at down-to-earth affordable prices. That's why we are so proud to carry CA products.

Exceptional Build Quality
As usual with Cambridge Audio, the CXA60'build quality is exquisite — the finsih and fit elevate its looks more like high-end than mid-range. It has a large toroidal transformer in the middle which is visible through the vent on the top of the unit's metal chassis. It adds an air of sophistication, refinement and weight consistemnt with its high-end exterior.

The CXA60 is a 60wpc integrated amp with 4 analog inputs, and 3 digital inputs—1 being coaxial and the other 2 optical with Toslink connectors. There is also a connector for an optional Apt-X Bluetooth adapter for wireless music transmission from a smartphone, along with a sub output, and one set of L & R pre-outs to allow for output to a power amplifier.

CA continues to label all the connectors on the rear panel both above and below each connection, with the top labels upside down so you can read them while you’re bending over the amplifier making adjustments. It's sp practical because it makes it so much easier to make connections with the unit in the rack where there may be very little light and room.

On the front, there are two 3.5mm connectors, one input for digital music players and one output for headphones. Next to those are several input selection buttons, and pop out knobs for bass, treble, and balance. There is also a direct button that you can press to bypass the tone controls, a mute button, and an A/B speaker selection button.

The CXA60 has a 24/192 DAC, which enhances the sound from digital sources. However, there is no wireless capability built into this product; for that you would need to step up to the model above it, or by plugging in an inexpensive wireless audio receiver (around $30) into the digital input, thus turning it into a network capable component.
