Cambridge Audio CXU
The CXU is the pinnacle in high-end home cinema. Designed for the ultimate performance and playback of your favourite movies and music, the CXU has unrivalled connectivity making it a complete home cinema hub, whatever your source.
The CXU features 5 separate Wolfson WM8740 DACs and Cambridge’s proprietary ATF audio upsampling (Adaptive Time Filtering). Wired or wireless and whatever input, or file quality, the CXU upsamples all audio to 24-bit/192kHz, for stunning hi-res performance. Digital jitter, which affects all digital music is taken care of by ATF for exceptional sound. A dedicated 2-channel analogue stereo output guarantees the best possible stereo sound, and Pure Audio mode allows shut down of all video processing to prevent any audio signal interference.
CXU uses DARBEE Visual Presence technology to deliver a stunning video playback. Fully adjustable DARBEE settings allow you to tailor the settings to suit each input. 4k upsampling and 2D to 3D scaling from all video sources, means you enjoy a cinema quality ‘3D’ experience, whatever the source.
Whatever source, the CXU can handle it, making it a true home hub. CXU has 2 HDMI inputs, digital optical and coaxial audio inputs, and 3 USB inputs allowing connection to almost any source – all up-sampled or processed for the best possible audio or audio-visual experience. The front HDMI input even supports MHL, for exceptional mobile device playback from smart phones or a digital camcorder.
CXU also has a wired or wireless network connection. This means it can connect to your home network and play back audio, video or photo files from UPnP and DLNA servers and from NAS drives.
Separately configurable, twin HDMI outputs, send high quality video to multiple displays or 3D video to a display and separate HDMI audio to a non-3D AV receiver. An Audio Return Channel (ARC) is built in too, allowing the audio signal from a connected TV to be sent to the CXU – with no need for a separate audio output from the TV.
The CXU can be connected directly to a power amplifier or active speakers for a simple and highly versatile system, with no worries about volume control. Whether using digital or analogue outputs, you can control volume (even on 7.1 and 2.0) set ups direct from the CXU remote.
