As a DAC chip, the ES9010K2M is used, and USB resolutions of up to 384 kHz PCM and 11.2 MHz for DSD are supported. The output power is specified by Cambridge with 2x60 Watt at 8 Ohm. Somewhat larger (2x80 Watt/8 Ohm) is the value with the model CXA81 (1200 Euro). There the DAC chip ES9016K2M is employed, and in addition to the 4 high-level cinch inputs, an XLR source can also be connected. Both models do not offer phono inputs. They will be available in November in the color "Lunar Grey". The CD player CXC and the network player CXN (V2) will then also be available in this color to match the new integrated amplifiers. Cambridge has also completely renewed its "Stream Magic" app for iOS and Android. It is compatible with the streaming devices CXN, CXR120/200, 851N and Edge NQ.
